  1. I just ran across my copy of the DVD guide for the GPSmap 76S published by Garmin. I will throw this in for whoever purchases the 76S.
  2. 60CS is sold. 76S still available. Thanks, Funyet
  3. Garmin 76S Older model (no USB) No box, no manual, no cable, just the GPS and a blue Gilson zippered case $86.00, includes shipping within US Garmin GPSmap 60CS No box, no cable. Manual is included. $140.00, includes shipping within US I bought these a while ago for hiking and geocaching. I've since replaced them with other units. These work fine, I just don't use them anymore. I prefer payment via PayPal Please email me if interested. I check email more often than forum PMs. Thanks, Marc marc@funyet.com
  4. A game/puzzle. Something extra to do while outside. A great way to find places I might not otherwise visit (or even know about). Great pastime for my kids and I!
  5. As much as I've looked forward to receiving my 60cs decided to cancel my order and put in an order for the 76cs. What's a few more months? I already have a 76s so I have the case, accessories, etc. (I assume they'll all fit). Deciding factors for me were the extra memory and the less than stellar reviews of the geocaching feature of the 60cs.
  6. I’m sort of a gadget-head so GPS was always interesting to me. My family does a lot of hiking and camping. A couple of years ago I started to look into GPS units to take on our trips. Not so much for navigation (we stick to marked trails) but more for the fun of logging where we’ve been. While researching GPS units I stumbled onto geocaching.com through one of the search engines. Sounded like a lot of fun so I bought a Magellan. My kids love geocaching. It’s become a family activity.
  7. Hey thanks! Downloaded EasyMPS and it will do everything I need and more! Cheers!
  8. I'm trying to convert my EasyGPS file to the correct file format to be imported into Mapsource. I did this several times with GPSBabel but now I can't remember/figure out how I did it....arrrgggghhhhh!!! Any suggestions? I'm no longer sure which settings to use. Thanks!
  9. OK. One of the things I’m determined to do this year is REALLY learn how to use a map and how to use a GPS, just for fun. I’ve always found these fascinating but never took the time to learn. I recently bought A Magellan Platinum and am getting the hang of it. I also bought a few topographic maps of my area and have been working with plotting GPS coordinates to the map with decent success. I even went out looking for my first Geocache this morning on the way to work. I didn’t find it (ran out of time) but I know I was within a few hundred feet, I was proud of myself for even getting to the right side of town based on coordinates. Anyway, here’s a question which I know is simple, but… I understand the DEG/MIN/SEC format: When MINutes reaches 60 then 1 is added to degree When SEConds reaches 60 then 1 is added to MIN Where I get lost is: DEG/MIN.MM And DEG/MIN.MMM What does .MM and .MMM signifiy, and at what point do they roll over and add 1 to the value of the unit to its left? Does this question make sense??? Any good online sources of info that explain the differences between the different systems? I have a couple of books I’m working with and I have a book on GPS, but it just mentions that the different formats exist, without telling much more about it. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
