  1. Depending on the App, there are ways to load GPX files onto the phone where the App can read them. I used to load directly to a phone or tablet, or I used wifi and hotspots. I have a Blackview phone but had bad luck with it, and I also had other even cheaper used phones and a tablet, each for Geocaching and loaded usually over wifi, without a data subscription. But I can't stand not being able to see anything on the screen in daylight, and the limited battery and heating of phones/tablets, and I don't care for "the Apps" because of the menu maze and how they always seem to need to "go online" for something (frequently), so I use a Garmin GPS for most Geocaching. But you have more App options (and it's more convenient) if you have access to wifi to load them in advance or at Hotspots along the way, rather than loading from a computer.

    Need a good, modern, moderate priced handheld. Suggestions, please

    A ruggedized Android phone from AliExpress, unlocked without contract (I paid US$150 for a Blackview BV6000s), plus a quality caching app (eg Locus Map Pro), in combination, functions as a complete Garmin replacement. Readability in brightest sunlight is the only issue; I have to turn so it's in my shadow. I can live with that. But in other areas, a phone outperforms. Screen resolution alone beats the pants/skirt off even the priciest Garmin. Nothing says you have to use such a unit as your regular phone. If you don't bother putting in a SIM, you essentially have a PDA with lots of functionality. Or a GPS unit ...with lots of functionality.

    Look into a Garmin that is Wherigo compatable. I've seen several geocaching tours/adventures. I have an Oregon 400

    Bluetooth Caches from Huawei to Garmin oregon 750?

    Bluetooth Caches from Huawei to Garmin oregon 750?

    It does not work that way. "Share Wirelessly" on a Garmin is via the ANT+ protocol and is between other compatible Garmin devices. You need to use the app on the Garmin to import data.

    Bluetooth Caches from Huawei to Garmin oregon 750?

    Does it work like that? "Geooh Go" specifically states that you can "share lists with nearby Geooh users", which would be to another phone. Garmin's "Share Wirelessly" function sends waypoints and Geocaches between particular Garmin devices. You might ask the App developers. The Geooh Support Forum is here: http://geooh.com/forum/ But you can set up a phone to send "Lists" and live caches to a Garmin Oregon 700. This video is a short overview that shows how to open the App Drawer, by pushing the power button, and how to "send" live Geocaches from a connected phone:
  7. I am trying to Bluetooth Caches from Huawei to Garmin oregon 750 via share in Geooh GO. I get a meesage saying 'Bluetooth share: Sent files 0 successful, 1 failed'. Accoring to Garmin I should be able to send Geocaches from my phone to the 750, but I can't find a how to do it. Garmin talk of:- From the app drawer, select Share Wirelessly. Select an option: Select Send, and select a type of data. Select Receive to receive data from another device. The other compatible device must be attempting to send data. Follow the on-screen instructions. However I don't appear to have a 'Share Wirelessly' anywhere on the 750. I don't appear to have anything called 'app drawer' either. I am getting messages (emails), from my phone onto the 750 so the connection is OK. Any help would gbe greatly appreciated.
  8. More or less all the Garmin handhelds do what you want. The difference are the input method (buttons or touchscreen) and screen size. Also the lower priced models run a bit slower. My suggestion is to find a store to look at them in person and see what you like versus the cost. The newest models Gpsmap 66 and Oregon 700 series have wifi and bluetooth to get live information through a phone. But these are pretty expensive. You can also still read the cache info on your phone and navigate with the GPS, if you want.
  9. Hiya. My old Garmin is no longer able to connect with my PC, so I need to upgrade. The array available is so confusing now, was wondering what are the most useful attributes and maybe even the best models, please? I looked at the Garmin Etrex 32x with the three axis compass etc. Is this a good unit? Need to be able to get the cache details either from my phone or my PC. I tried using my phone, but it's not accurate enough Thanks for any help / suggestions Regards Steve

    Garmin GPSMAP 66 series announced on 2018-08-06

    Just to note that I sort of agree with this complaint. I have given the four data fields a lot of use and do use them when I really need to have data fields. They do cover much more of the map than I like since I often heavily use the map. The higher resolution is nice but the 4 fields still make the map much harder to use. I have compromised by keeping the data fields turned off unless I really need them in real time. I have put a couple of pages right after the map page, in sequence so I can quickly change to those screens if I need to see information I used to have in the two small data fields. Inconvenient, but certainly not so much so that I would ever willingly give up the great features of my 66. And given the explanation as to why the 2 small data fields are gone, I suspect Garmin will not give us that option back. Garmin has their own ideas of how their devices should work and is not always the most receptive to customer feedback. I am just glad they are still supporting and developing these stand alone handhelds and have been so far able to continue to do so even with most people using cell phones now instead of units like the 66.

    Problem z sygnałem GPS w lesie

    Niby tak a jednak nie. Kiedyś myślałem tak jak Ty ale w pewnym momencie uświadomiłem sobie, że tylko garstka ludzi wykorzystuje możliwości Garmina. Prawda jest taka, że jak masz zamiar tylko keszować z buta to Garmin Ci nie jest potrzebny. Jest powolny, nie ma spojlerów ze zdjęciami a wgrywanie keszy to istna masakra. Jednak gdy robisz coś więcej niż tylko łażenie po górach warto przemyśleć zakup, z telefonem na rowerze nie pokeszujesz tak sprawnie, w zimie nie przejdziesz w środku nocy przy -10 przez zaśnieżone góry a w letniej burzy zaraz zalejesz telefon idąc przez jakiś podmokły las. A dokładność to swoją drogą eTrex 30 ma notorycznie przestawione współrzędne względem Samsunga A5. Zawsze jest 10 metrów różnicy między nimi. I potem na takiej serii jak Misja Ślęża część ludzi mówi, że jest ok a część, że współrzędne są przestawione o parę metrów i trzeba jechać ze spojlera. Dlatego na dokładność sygnału zawsze trzeba brać poprawkę i tyle, chyba, że ma się możliwość porównania ze zdjęciem satelitarnym.

    It's not worthless. Those four data fields are the same size as all of the other dashboards, which is what Garmin was going for - a uniform dashboard that can be filled with different design for different purposes. Honestly, just give it a try before dismissing it as worthless. The dashboard leaves enough map to still be useful, especially now that the screen size and resolution have been increased.

    I wish I had read this thread before I bought a 66s. The lack of the 2 data fields when in map or compass mode makes it nearly worthless IMHO. Only two options. Full screen with no data fields or four massive data fields with only half the map. Pretty poor planning if you ask me. Anyone know when or if Garmin will wake up and fix this? After all, it's got to be a very simple line of code for them to return the 2 small data field option. Returned my 66s as defective until they fix this.

    Interesting Geocache Idea

    Maybe not a Groundspeak solution. Like you say..years and years down the road. On the bright side, we have Earthcaches thanks to the GSA. We have (or maybe it's "had" by now, since I don't see many) Chirps, thanks to Garmin. Maybe the OP can find a sponsor that can push the project forward. Sounds like a lot of work, but Hey! Follow your passion.

    In theory, both of those methods should work. The second way, you are downloading the file to the GPX folder, correct? I had a look at the GPX files created by Garmin Express and by the direct download and they aren't identical. The direct download includes a header that specifies that it is an xml file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:Groundspeak="Groundspeak" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" version="1.0" creator="Groundspeak, Inc.

Whereas the file created by Garmin Express does not: <gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:Groundspeak="Groundspeak" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" version="1.0" creator="Groundspeak, Inc.

I don't know if this makes a difference. As far as I can tell, there are no other differences between the files, or anything that would make them show up as a waypoint rather than a geocache.

    Sorry for bullet points and short statements but cable in comp then Garmin chrome - open geo site map. click geocache and left hand panel opens, 1. click send to Garmin, allow Garmin express, download window appears click download. eject Garmin to check - nothing appears in my Garmin icon for geocaches plug back in, look at base camp (in 'show all' it's there!) not in geocache section! 2. way , download GPX and it goes to my way points with no cache info. I've never had 'no results found' on my gps before.

    The communicator plugin is no longer supported by any modern browser and you put yourself and your computer at risk using an outdated browser and operating system just to make it work. Besides, the powers at HQ have taken that function away to discourage this kind of risk-taking. If they show up on the map, but not in the list of geocaches, it means that you probably have a filter enabled that is hiding the geocaches. Select "Show All" from your list of filters and see if they show up in the list.

    Thanks for the reply. When I mentioned browsers it was because previously my Garmin was not supported or it may have been the action was not supported! I wondered if the browser didn't support my garmin. I did as your steps suggested but it didn't work - they appear in the folder when I look on the computer but not when I look on my gps. Your excellent instructions confirmed I was doing it right but I'm not getting the caches on my garmin. Update - they do show up in the map icon of my Garmin but not the geocache one, which means no cache info - for some reason.

    I'm not sure what the problem is? The eTrex 30 doesn't have a browser on it, so... no browser? Here's the bare minimum that you need to install a geocache on a modern Garmin gps that supports mass storage mode: 1. Connect the GPS to your computer with the USB cable. It will mount as a drive. 2. Find a geocache on the website that you want to visit. Download the GPX file. 3. Save it it into the [drive letter]:\Garmin\GPX folder ( where [drive letter] is the drive letter assigned to your GPS device) 4. Repeat for other geocaches. 5. Disconnect and go geocaching. While you're connected, it's a good idea to delete any old GPX files that contain geocaches since the eTrex has a limit of reading 2000 gpx files. If you prefer to load lots of geocaches at once, you can use Pocket Queries. Or you can create bookmark lists and send them to your GPS with the "Send to Garmin" feature that utilizes Garmin Express. Make sure your Garmin Express is up to date. You can also send single geocaches via this method as well. I am, of course, assuming that you are a Windows user. If you are a Mac user, the steps are the same, but drives aren't assined letters. They just get a volume name and the default for a Garmin GPS is "Garmin" --> /Garmin/Garmin/GPX as opposed to E:\Garmin\GPX

    I'm sure this has been asked before but I need help. My Garmin etrex 30 won't show downloaded caches - it did use to but now it doesn't. So my question(s) are which browser should I be using, does someone have a dummies step-by-step guide and is there an alternative way to download. I really appreciate the help - and yes I do need the help without any 'tech speak' just simple and easy. The one click wonder button does not work!! Thanks MCK

    Not actually. See this https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-4-desktop-kit/ It is sold for a desktop computer with support for Dual 4K HDMI display. Quad Core CPU@1.5GHz and 4GB RAM. The whole system costs less than a Windows 10 license.

    Garmin GPSMap 64S Problems

    I just had the problem the OP described, on my Garmin 64st. * Hard reset did not solve the problem. *Turning off GLONASS immediately solved it. This seems to be a very intermittent problem with GLONASS; I've been running GPS/GLONASS without a hitch for about a year, until my GPS started consistently giving me "Weak GPS Signal" no matter where I was. I'll try turning GLONASS back on sometime and see what happens.

    Eneloop Pro too thick for GPSMAP 66?

    OK, I took a few minutes to some of my own testing here.... I have a pair of Eneloop Pro BK-3HCDE batteries in my GPSMAP 66 with no noticeable issues. I measured a Garmin AA NimH battery pack at 14.22mm Dia. I also measured a Rayovac Alkaline AA battery at 13.97mm Dia. My Eneloop Pro BK-3HCDE batteries measured 14.26mm Dia. I inserted each set into a GPSMAP 66 and submerged the unit under water for about 20 seconds each time. After thoroughly drying the exterior, I opened the battery cover to inspect for water ingress. None of the tests allowed water into the battery compartment. So I had a closer look at the Eneloop Pro BK-3HCDE batteries, and discovered something. They measure 14.36mm Dia. when measured where the label overlaps itself, roughly 150-210 degrees from the 'eneloop pro' text, depending on which way you go. So, I tested again with the Eneloop Pro BK-2HCDE batteries installed with the label seam facing up in the battery compartment. And this time water did enter the battery compartment! Turns out, in my state of OCD, I always orient the batteries with the name up, which in this case provided more favorable clearances for the battery cover to seal properly. Something to think about!
