  1. I doubt it is you. Sounds like Magellan is outsourcing some work to Garmin software engineers Contact Magellan Support yet? Thanks for the response! I did shoot Magellan an email since I couldn't find anything on their site about it. Haven't heard back yet (it was only 1.5hr ago) but when I tried searching on Google found this thread and thought I'd give it a shot. Will post anything I find out here in case it comes up for someone else in the future. Here is a more direct contact, may get you quicker response: Jeff Caulfield National Product Trainer/Brand Advocate Magellan Outdoor GPS 801-816-5774 jcaulfield@magellangps.com Thank you so much, BMW Jedi! I have already heard back from Mr. Caulfield. We don't have it fully resolved yet but I am already much further along than I was this morning.
  2. I am with BMW Jedi on this one. I manage a trail map project and I can tell you Google Maps/Earth should not be considered an accurate way to place a cache or confirm coordinates. I have seen it out by 100M in places and there really is no substitute for taking actual coordinates at the hide location. Remember coords that are out by 100M could lead cache seekers to a place they are not welcome like a neighbouring property. This does not promote good will for our game. Use your iPhone's GPS as mentioned above or another discreet GPS unit and disregard the use Google/Bing/Mapquest methods
  3. I'm with BMW Jedi as I will need to load the FL topo to my SD card in preparation for my trip to Orlando in June.
  4. Hi Splashy, I have a Garmin 450 (Oregon) as mentioned and the battery compartment is orange so I dabbed paint for a quick reference. If the compartment is black on yours, just a dab of red on one end would do if you want a quick reference for the positive end. ======================== Hi BMW JEDI, To be quite honest, I did not know about the lock, I just put the card in and slid the cover forward, but still it would open when I sometimes took the batteries out. The small piece of tape mentioned does the trick and it is still easy to remove/replace the card and the tape is re-usable. Best regards, Wayne Miller 4evrCking

    Something is wrong. The unit should be very accurate, as accurate as anything made. BMW Jedi is completely wrong. If anything, they are better at accuracy than an Oregon. First please check that the firmware is up to date. Then learn how to use it. The Colorados still have the nicest user interface, IMO, despite the software being a bit older.
  6. Thanks for the replies, helpful. BMW Jedi thanks for the Wiki link. I decided to get 16GB microSD card - will down load Florida topo and my geocaches onto this. If anyone has experience with birdseye satellite, I would appreciate comments on it (not worried about getting it right away, but would still like to hear personal reviews on it).
  7. This is from the guy who has never owned a kayak, and has mostly borrowed or rented canoes for 45 years? My Coleman Ram-X 15 was pretty advanced when I bought it in 1995, with its bright orange poly hull. It sure beat those aluminum Grummans I had always previously used for the 20 years before that. I sold it around 2005 to another cacher, and have heard a story or 2 of it being beaten on by others who borrowed it. But it really does not compare to any kayak. Kayaks really are so simple there is no learning curve, unless you are on whitewater rapids. Just get in and go. The newer advanced canoes look pretty awesome, but in the end it's still like comparing SUVs to cars. Yes, that 2012 BMW X-5 will leave the 1982 LTD in the dust, but overall most cars are more nimble and handle better than most SUVs. I have never had any problems getting out of my kayaks quickly, never felt uncomfortable, am able to keep a small cooler in them, as well as accessing the rear storage area without getting out. They are without a doubt much easier to control. Although on most camping trips, I admit I would rather have a canoe. I was also in Maine this past September and recall mostly seeing kayaks. It looks like I'll have to return next summer to take a closer look.
  8. Moin Cappy, du postest im offiziellen Geocaching-Forum und fragst nach einem Konkurrenzprodukt? Geh doch mal zu BMW und frag ob man dir dort einen Mercedes empfehlen kann ;-) Ansonsten schau doch mal hier im Forum: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showforum=156 Gruß, M / Team Exxodos
  9. Any rationale for the 62S from your side? I've always been a fan of the quad-helix antenna.....I have 4 different models using the quad and several without. I find the button layout on the 62 series ( same as the 60,76)much better than the Etrex joystick, etc. The firmware for the 62 series is more mature ( my unit works perfectly )....read this forum re Etrex firmware. The 62 has a GREAT 3-axis pointer{ compass} ( will always point at the cache even if you're not moving)......I've read several on this forum that won't even use this feature on the Etrex 30 it performs so poorly. IMO the Etrex wasn't made to compete with the 62 but to offer a less costly alternative...like trying to compare a BMW 700 series with the 300 series. That's a great insight; thanks! The compass and greater precision is important to me and the most important reason I am upgrading from the Legend HCx. I got lost yesterday for a while because without compass it's so hard to find your way back to a trail. I kept on walking back and forth and then made a detour over a golf course before finding a trailhead bringing me back to the trail...

  11. Hallo zusammen... Wir (Mieze81, KraxelMaxel, Thümmi, Bmw-maxe und ich) haben eine "Sagen-Cache-Serie" im Ost-Erzgebirge (Derzeit 24 aktive Caches). Die Idee wurde durch Mieze geboren und durch uns beide maßgeblich vorangetrieben... Mittler Weile veranstalten wir halbjährlich ein Event. Aus den dort entstanden Bekanntschaften bilden sich nette Cachergruppen, gerade für Nachtcaches oder aufwändigere Multis, LPs etc. Seit kurzen habe ich eine Seite unter dem Motto Cachen im Ost-Erzgebirge online gestellt. Sie ist im Aufbau und wird noch und nach erweitert... Ursprünglich war es eine Übersicht all unserer Sagencaches. Vor kurzen wurde die Seite um eine Bestenliste und eine FTF-Jägerliste erweitert... Solltet ihr Fragen oder was auch immer haben, könnt ihr mich gern über die HP oder über GC-com kontaktieren... Happy Hunting!
  12. There is an old abondoned railway stop in the middle of the forest, and there is a cachesomewhere there. So I once stopped by form my work trip and thought I'd search the can. First thing I noticed was a BMW parked a few meters from the cache. I quickle checked that no one was around, thought they were picking berries or mushrooms somewhere. So I started searching. I poked the roots of the nearby tree with a stick to find the cache. When I turned around, I saw a young couple in the backseat of the BMW staring at me. (Should propably have peeked inside in the first place.) I bowed deep in my black tie and glossy shoes and left the place. returned later for the cache...

  15. At 290,000+ miles I sold my last Jeep Cherokee, 16 mpg, instead of fixing it; it still ran good but was pretty worn out. I sold my custom 1-ton Suburban 454 Dualie. 8 mpg, because it didn't make economic sense to keep driving it after I sold my travel trailer. I camp a lot and usually slept in the back of it, so the cost of driving it was somewhat offset by having a comfy bed on the road. Best all-around cachemobile I've ever had though! I bought an '06 Tahoe to replace it, 16 mpg, no way to get the advertised 21 mpg. I sold it and bought a Kia Sportage, 31 mpg, but my son wanted it. Traded him for his BMW 525i, 30 mpg but not much passenger or trunk room. I will soon trade the BMW for another Jeep Cherokee... I have had 5 over the years and it is simply the best all-around highway and off-road combination... newer ones get 18 mpg, 4WD that takes me anywhere I will want to go, plenty of passenger room, decent cargo room, and will pull any size trailer I am likely to need. I looked at the Subaru and Volvo 4WDs and just don't see them as a viable alternatives.
  16. Many people around here use a magellan and love them as well as delorme units. I would not definitely choose garmin over any other brand. Availability of maps is only one consideration. I would chose a unit based on the features that I needed and wanted and also the price. My very first unit was an entry level magellan. Then I researched and got a lowrance h20c which I loved. I now have a montana only because I really lucked out and found a great deal on it. Speaking of Lowrance, I purchased their $600 flagship model (Lowrance Endura Sierra) just so I could experience another brand... Having done so I am very happy to stick with Garmin units. Anyone can read through these forums and see which brands have the most issues, and which brand has the best user and factory support. Garmin is constantly refining and introducing new features for all of their GPSr units, while other brands only offer updates and fixes once a year, if that often. Anyone can run down to their local sporting goods store (if they have one) and handle the latest offerings from Garmin, Lowrance, Magellan, etc... and decide for themselves which units look and feel the most refined and finished. Much like a Prius or a BMW will both get you from point 'A' to point 'B', there are some users who find they do not require a Garmin to meet their needs, but they certainly do enjoy them more.
  17. I take it from this comment, you ride a cruiser or similar, 'cause loose dirt is hella fun on a dirt bike! But I'd also like to know if its a dirt road, so I can choose which bike I use, like yo usay, loose dirt is not so fun on an expensive Harley, and it means you're gonna spend hours cleaning it later. That's what I was thinking. I got my first motorcycle when I was about 10 years old and spent a *lot* of time riding in loose dirt and mud before I got a drivers license and could ride one on the streets. If I still owned a motorcycle I'd be more interested in having one for geocaching on loose dirt than one for geocaching using city streets. Absolutely! I ride BMW and Harley Davidson to caches.
  18. But you could put JEEP tires on your BMW
  19. Possibly, but I could easily say the same about BMW drivers or drivers of lots of other cars. The argument just does not make sense by mistakenly singling out 4x4 drivers. We've lots of 4x4 owners round here and I've never seen one not take their fair share of giving way to each other on our narrow country lanes. I just don't get why people single out 4x4 drivers and not BMW drivers, Mercedes drivers, sports car drivers or for that matter, any other group of drivers where *some* of the cars in the class are above average emissions.
  20. Hi, Knochen haben wir zwar noch nicht gefunden, einen Polizeieinsatz ausgelöst jedoch schon. Suchten nachts in der Nähe eines stillgelegten Radarpostens der Bundeswehr nach einem Tradi, als ich im Gebüsch etwas Blitzen sah. Jedoch war es nicht der Cache, sondern 4 Sätze nagelneue Alufelgen, die meisten von BMW, etwa 17-18 Zöller, bestimmt nicht billig. Es hatte an dem Abend geregnet. Einige der Felgen waren noch in Kartons verpackt, diese waren jedoch nicht nass. Das ließ die Vermutung aufkommen, dass das alles noch nicht lange hier rum lag. Auch war es provisorisch mit abgerissenen Ästen abgedeckt. Eindeutig ein Zwischenlager eines nächtlichen Diebstahls. Nun gut, sind wieder etwa einen Kilometer zurück zur nächsten Ortschaft gefahren und haben dann die Polizei informiert. Die haben uns getroffen, eine weitere Streife hat die umliegenden Autohäuser nach Einbruchspuren inspiziert. Dann gemeinsam wieder zum Fundort. Der zusätzlich angeforderte Polizeibus wurde schlussendlich bis unters Dach vollgeladen mit den Felgen. Ein paar Tage später erfuhren wir aus der Zeitung, dass ein paar Ortschaften weiter bei einer Tuning-Firma eingebrochen worden war und diese Felgen wohl dort gestohlen wurden. Den Cache selbst haben wir in dieser Nacht nicht mehr gefunden... (wobei uns die Polizisten bei der Suche ja auch hätten helfen können, wenn sie schon mal da warn
  21. Hello, I'm also looking for an avatar. Some basics about me: I'm male and are german. I use a Garmin Quest for caching. My name is just a name I came up with and has no meaning. I like to ride my BMW R1150GS motorbike. My wife often comes with me. She's from china. I tried to make something myself and I came up with the following sticker I put into the logbooks: A higher res version can be found at http://www.arm-dran.de/gc/Bild1.gif It show the "official" translation of geocaching into chinese and a pirture of my BMW motorbike. Thanks in advanced Andreas
  22. I still think you are being wildly optimistic about the cost, but even if you are not... OK, let's assume your $200K is the actual number... For a company the size of GS to simply eat that $200k and not pass it along? Again, this gets back to what I said earlier, that people have this perception that Jeremy is just rolling around in a hot tub filled with 100's, that is, when he isn't out driving his BMW 9 series. Quite the contrary, $200K is a staggering amount of money for a company the size of GS. There are tens of thousands of companies that are 10 to 100 times larger than GS that operate less than $200k above or below breakeven, and even for them, a delta of $200,000 would be a complete game changer. This is what the posting of the Louis CK video was all about. GS gives the vast majority of its users the vast majority of their services for free, and when they need to make all their salaries and pay all their bills from the tiny sliver that is left to make any money from, they are villainized. $200k isn't optimistic, its more like the idiot price for someone that walks into a new car dealership and pays whats on the sticker (and if you do a little research, you will find that this is the top price for 2 million daily hits). $50k is what they will get if they have more than 10 minutes of negotiating experience. But, lets play with $200k, for a company that has revenues of approximately $4 million (and yes, this is gs's approximate revenue, for some quick math, 125k users, figure 1/2 pay annually at $30, and 1/2 pay quarterly at $40), its a 5% hit. For a company that has no significant expense in the product that they sell (they aren't out placing the caches, they don't own the caches, they very simply have a listing site, nothing more), there is definitely room in the budget for a 5% variance. This comes to less than $2 annually for each premium member and still giving it to free members. More realistic, they would pay less than $50k, which would only be a 1.25% hit to the budget. ANY company that operates that tight won't be in business for long. This comes to less than 50 cents annually for each premium member.

  24. I was using a BMW Z3 and Saab 97X, but about a month ago picked up a Jeep Wrangler Sport, which is fantastic for the forest service roads in my area.
  25. Greetings from Finland! This thread just seems so cool and brand new avatars just amazing!! I can not do anything reasonably to pics, so hopefully some nice fellow would help me out. So here is my try. As my MC is BMW avatar might based on that figure. And it would be nice if it have geocaching/groudspeak logo colours in the middle. That just belongs there, right? It would be nice to replace text BMW with my alias hikerbiker... or shortie HB And one more thing. I'd like to get some more action to lame pic by adding front part of this MC to down right (inside) the coin. More nice ideas? I just can not wait to see what you can do with these
