  1. You don't want much, do you? 8^) Non of Garmin's current GPSr offerings will be supported for 'at least 10 years' - This just isn't how the portable electronics game is played today. Technology moves too fast. Most units have support lifespans of maybe half that time. Doesn't meant hey will stop working after that, just means Garmin will likely have a newer and better unit out by then, and old unit supports will be dropped in favor of the latest and greatest stuff! Less than $200? Your GPSMAP 60 series was never that inexpensive (adjusting for inflation) - why do you not want something comparable today? If you are already familiar with the GPSMAP series and like how they function, I would highly recommend the GPSMAP 66 - They can be had on sale for ~$300 (gpscity just had a great sale on them), and this unit will still be going strong for many more years. Otherwise, I echo Mineral2 sentiments (mostly) but instead suggest the Oregon 7x0 for its advanced wireless features and capabilities. These can also be had for under $300. If you must stay under $200, gpscity has some great deals on GPSMAP 78 series units right now.
  2. Wenn der andere Owner geschrieben hat, wird er doch auch eine Entfernung angegeben haben, oder? Ich würde vermutlich erstmal antworten mit der ermittelten Entfernung, und ihn fragen warum er meint dass es da Probleme wie Verwechslungsgefahr o.ä. geben könnte. Ich habe schon mal einen Cache um ein paar Meter verschoben damit ein anderer Owner seinen neuen Cache an der Wunschposition ausbringen konnte - aber auch da gabe es keine Verwechslungsgefahr. Im schlimmsten Fall muss man eben in beiden Listings schreiben warum jetzt nicht hier, sondern da zu suchen ist. Aber selbst dann sollten mehr als 200 m Abstand noch genug sein. Ergänzung: Die sind ja auch beide noch an unterschiedlichen Seiten der B2. Also keine Verwechslungsgefahr.
  3. That's exactly what I'm saying. So out of 3,000 caches found, not a single one meets your standards? Get off your high horse. It doesn't have to literally be your favorite, they votes to tell other cachers which ones are the best of the 3,000. If you haven't found one favorite in the last 3,000 (ratio) then you sure as hell aren't gonna suddenly find 300 in a row that you deem worthy, so what's the point of saving them? But hey, I'm just a peasant with 200 finds. It would sure be nice to have some more votes on the thousands of caches around me so I can visit the the better crappy caches over the worse crappy caches on my way to 300 finds.
  4. Hallo, Die gesperrte Fläche ist erstmal der Bereich um einen Geocache, in dem du keinen anderen Cache legen kannst also die 161Meter. D.h. Wenn jetzt auf der Karte 2 Tradis in einem 200 Meter Abstand gelegt wurden und um beide wird diese rote Sperrfläche von 161 Meter gezogen, dann überschneiden sich zwar die roten Kreise, die Caches sind aber trotzdem weit genug auseinander. So zumindest verstehe ich das (falls nicht kann mich ja jemand verbessern ). Grüße Qmm
  5. Hallo, sorry für meinen absichtlich provokativen Titel. Ich kenne mich in der Natur meiner Region sehr gut aus und hätte ein paar absolut unbekannte, geniale Locations und entsprechend spannende Cache-Ideen dafür. Nun ist es so, dass in einigen Fällen nur wenige Meter entfernt solche "hirnlosen" Dosen von jemandem "versteckt" wurden, der auf die sehenswerte Landschaft keinerlei Rücksicht genommen hat, sich offenbar auch weder auskennt noch damit beschäftigt und vielmehr ein so großartiges Ziel verfolgt, beispielsweise ein riesiges, nur am Rechner sichtbares Ei aus 200 Dosen in der Landschaft zu platzieren. Nun könnte man natürlich sagen, jeder wie er mag. Allerdings lautet die Geocaching-Überregel doch "Denke darüber nach, warum Du Leute an einen Ort führst, wenn Du einen Geocache versteckst. Wenn der Geocache der einzige Grund ist, finde einen besseren Ort." Natürlich interessiert das die Massendosenverteiler nicht die Bohne. Vermutlich wurden von der Community schon öfter Versuche gestartet, das komplette Zumüllen der Landschaft auszuhebeln. Woran scheitert das? Können oder wollen die Betreiber des Spiels nicht gegen das Brechen dieser eigentlich elementaren Grundregel vorgehen? Mir ist natürlich schon klar, dass ein "sehenswerter" Ort sehr subjektiv ist. Aber ein Kreis, der sich aus zahllosen Baumstümpfen, Straßenschildern und Leitplankenpfosten ergibt, legt ja relativ eindeutig den Schluss nahe, dass es hier nicht um den Baumstumpf geht... Vermutlich wurde das unter den Forums-Usern schon oft und ausführlich diskutiert, aber ich habe leider keinen entsprechenden Thread gefunden. Cheers Jörg
  6. I just looks 15 is the most in one day for me. While on vacation all traditional puzzle caches. I need the passwords from 10 in 2 counties to complete the challenge. We did 7 the next day covering 250 miles to finish a series. Also stopped for lunch went shopping and visited a second hand store. In my 20 mile drive to work there's a cache every mile a few park and grabs some puzzles and a couple multis. I get two or three a week during my drive. Usually when my daughter or wife are with. I've had to call the CO on acouple I couldn't figure them out. Most are 200 to 500 feet from the road in a tree row. I'm not chasing any numbers so I do at my pace.
  7. Hier liest man ja aber genauso - bzw. sogar deutlich öfters -, dass der schnöde PETling des Powertrails (der da nur liegt, weil die letzte Dose schon wieder 180 Meter her ist) auch die tollen Locations blockiert. Und der wird ganz oft gefunden, also mit welchem Argument werden wir den los? Für mich ist "Cache wird oft/selten gefunden" weder ein Qualitätsmerkmal noch wird daraus eine Daseinsberechtigung abgeleitet. individueller einfacher Tradi an einer tollen Location mit großer Dose Powertrail-Caches Hardcore-Cache mit T5-Einlagen Stadt-Multi D5-Knobel-Mystery Leitplanken-Micro ...... Das ist für mich alles Geocachen und die Abwechselung finde ich toll. Und da ich einzelne davon nicht mag, mache ich sie halt einfach nicht. Liegenlassen muss man halt lernen und genug Hardcore-Caches bewundere ich auch nur aus der Ferne.... Irgendwie toll ist das sicher trotzdem und dann bin ich traurig, dass ich das nicht kann. Aber deswegen darf der doch trotzdem andere Cacher erfreuen. Und - ganz ehrlich - ich glaube, der Hardcore-Cache erfreut mehr Cacher als die Filmdose mit nassem Logbuch an der Leitplanke; auch wenn der zweite Cache öfters gefunden wird. Der eine Cache hat halt 200 Finder, von denen 199 den Cache halt machen, weil er da ist, und sich über den ungepflegten Zustand auslassen. Der andere Cache hat 3 Finder, die auch Jahre später noch davon schwärmen. Meine Entscheidung ist klar - Quantität ist nicht alles.
  8. Sometimes people find the final cache accidentally, or check likely looking places. I have found several this way. At least three times I have been checking out a suitable hide to leave another cache in (not all for this site) and found it already occupied. I reached into a metal sculpture, and said to my friend, "This would make a nice hide" and felt a magnetic cache already there..."Just like this one," I said, pulling it out. The cache for a puzzle. We logged it. Another I was with a friend looking for a place to hide a cache and he picked up some rocks to show that would be a nice hide, and low and behold, there was already a cache there. It was the final for a series of caches, where each cache gives a clue to the final. Well, we logged the final first. I wrote in my log, that now I had found the final first, I would find the other caches, and did. Recently, I found the final to another cache that similarly to the previous cache, you find several caches that give clues to the final. I was a beginner when I found most of the pre caches and didn't know about collecting the clues, so hadn't. Also, this was an old series, and many of the original caches had gone missing and been archived, so when I accidentally found the final recently (still in good condition), while checking out hides to hide another cache in, I was thrilled. Finally I could log the final, of which I had found most of the previous caches, years ago. Also, sometimes I have just checked suitable hides to see if a cache is hiding there, and found puzzle and multicaches that way. A couple of times I was out walking and spotted caches accidentally. Walking across a field I found a cache lying out in the open. It turned out to be 200 metres from where it was supposed to be. That was a traditional, but I found a puzzle cache also out in the open, while walking through woodland on the way to another cache (which I didn't find). I signed the puzzle cache and re-hid it. These examples explain some finds. Then of course, there are the internet sites, (which I have never used), and didn't know they existed until told here.
  9. Looking at the html element your are right. It used to be 350 but it has been reduced to 200. But when you want to upload a new image it still says that the ideal resolution is 790px by 350px or larger. And the preview you are getting is of the old image resolution, not of the new one
  10. Hi Guys and Girls l'm new here but i need some help from here and maybe from some dutch people. what is the correct settings for the magellan triton 200 for Holland. i tried different settings for "mapdate"and "degrees settings" but still my geocache coordinates are way of. i stand on top of one geocache that i know it's there,but still it send my into a different place.
  11. Hallo LueKai, du musst gar nichts weiter angeben, aber genau deine Beispiele sind gar nicht so eindeutig mit "musst du nicht" zu beantworten. Ob es sechs oder acht Meter sind, ist mir egal, und ich freue mich, wenn es mal 20 Meter sind. Aber ich wüsste schon gerne, ob ich die Big-Shot mitschleppen soll, deswegen wäre es schon sinnig, wenn ich das mit den 20 Metern wüsste. Das könnte dann sinnvoll sein, wenn die Äste wirklich nur Fliegengewichte aushalten. Der 200-kg-Cacher weiß, dass ihn nicht alle Äste tragen - ich habe da auch so einen Multi - aber wenn der 50-kg-Owner einen Cache auslegt, bei dem sich bei ihm die Äste biegen, wäre das eine gute Angabe. Keine Angabe, dann gehe ich zum Beispiel beim T4 von einem soliden Baum mit dicken Ästen aus. Wenn der Cache sich explizit an Kinder ab 10 wendet, weil jüngere ihn nicht verstehen und vielleicht von manchen Elementen erschreckt werden können, dann wäre das gut. Oder andersherum, wenn der Spielplatz-Cache an lauter Spielplätzen vorbeiführt, die nur bis 8 Jahre spannend sind, dann ist es doof, wenn sich die Familie mit älteren Kindern vor Ort ärgert. Wenn es jede Standardlampe tut, dann nein. Wenn aber die Reflektoren so weit auseinander liegen, dass man 500+ Lumen braucht, dann bitte ja. Oder wenn es aus gewissen Gründen unbedingt die Stirnlampe sein muss. Für mich ist die Quintessenz: Die Attribute helfen und vereinfachen vieles. Aber sie ersetzen nicht alles. Und im Zweifelsfall ergänze ich im Listing. Ein einfaches Beispiel: Ich finde "takes less than one hour" (Uhren-Attirbut) bei einem Multi aussagekräftig und ob der nun 15 oder 45 Minuten dauert, kann man sicher auch den Logs entnehmen. "Takes more than one hour" (durchgestrichene Uhr) ist aber sehr unspezifisch und ich hätte schon gerne ein Gefühl, ob das nunn 2 Stunden oder 8 sind, die der Owner einplant. Und wenn er es nicht einschätzen möchte, schreibt er "plant einige Stunden ein", "plant gut eine Stunde ein", "plant 8 Stunden ein, ggf. etwas mehr oder weniger", "die Betatester haben 4 Stunden gebraucht" oder, oder - da wird ihn keiner auf die genaue Zeit festnageln, aber es ist eben doch eine sehr hilfreiche Zusatzinfo zur Orientierung. Und das geht nur mit Text, nicht mit dem Bild. Herzliche Grüße Jochen
  12. I had the same problem with all my 200 puzzle caches. Completely random missing photos from user to user. It was mainly using Google Chrome and even then it depended on how up to date the browser was to whether it rejected the host site. So some people saw them and some didn't .... It's all as a result of the changes made to hosting images since 15th September. Although GC HQ say pre 15th caches will work OK it's not actually true. My problem was solved by ensuring my web server had SSL installed. I enabled SSL and installed the free certificate and voila all the photos reappeared. Since 15th Sept I am using Dropbox to host my photos ( which is much easier.) and changed my links from http// to https// I'm still using my web server but only for HTML/CCS/Javascript code NOT for images. All very very annoying and time consuming to resolve .... John
  13. That's odd, all my caching friends in UK say the images are back ? I really don't want to edit 200 + caches if possible. All my caches post 15th are using dropbox and //https ;-)
  14. The reviewers are volunteers and have other real-world stuff to keep them busy too. Here we have one reviewer for the whole state (New South Wales, Australia) and he generally clears the pending queue twice a week, with a recent average of about 200 new caches a month. I imagine that while there are some that would be pretty straightforward that immediately tick all the boxes of the things they check, there would also be plenty of others that require more work. Non-traditional cache types have a lot more things for the reviewers to check, for example, particularly challenge caches.
  15. I fully appreciate that from 15th Sept we should use an authorised host, my lastest cache uses Dropbox which is fine. However I have been putting out puzzle caches for 3 years now and I don't want to move all the images of nearly 200 puzzle caches. The 15th Sept post clearly says :- Quote. This change will only apply to new cache and trackable pages. You can continue editing existing cache and trackable pages as before, even if they contain images that are hosted on third-party servers. So what have GC done to ruin all my historic caches ? John
  16. Thanks for testing them. Yes they are historic caches published before 15th Sept ruling, about 200 of them. John
  17. Can anyone at GC HQ help me. I have 200 cache puzzles with no images since this 15th September update ...... Only happens on Google Chrome , Ok on other browsers but most people use Chrome. Need help desperately .... John
  18. Interesting. Good to know, thanks. But what about this situation: I query my location, 2km, pull 100 caches Lite data. Later, I'm at a coffee shop nearby and I don't have that search result any more. Blank map, and I pull another query a couple blocks away returning 100 caches, with a 50 cache overlap to that prior location. I still get my circular result list, but what's the effect on the API limit? Was it 200? or 150? Even though the API ultimately gave me a total of 200 resulting icons that day so far (100 for both searches). I haven't run a test like that to verify numbers, since I rarely ever check my API limits unless I'm going on a huge road trip and collecting results for offline use
  19. Oh no ..... I've lost the images on all 200 of my caches now !!!!! What is going on ? My old caches should not be effected ... This change will only apply to new cache and trackable pages. You can continue editing existing cache and trackable pages as before, even if they contain images that are hosted on third-party servers.
  20. there are two brothers who have set out 200 caches between the two. we have started turning the one gone in for NA because they are gone. me and another cacher have been replacing the missing ones and repairing the flat out busted ones. exactly how do you nicely ask them to take care of all their own caches from now on out or they will be turned in for NA if they are missing and if they don't want to do the up keep on them?
  21. I've been caching for 6 years.... so can't comment on 10 years ago - I do get the impression from reading logs from caches from 7-10 years ago, that at least in this area, there were more highly active players then than now, with FTF races and a higher turnover of hides. There has been a decline in no of finds overall from my notification inbox, which shows total logs for the 80km radius from my home, purging on a 7d cycle. Previously there would be 800-1000+ emails in there, now maybe 200-500, with short term peaks at souvenir times.... If your area has broken/missing caches, log needs maintenance logs to get them fixed/removed. Cache publication here is rarely longer than 3-4 days, I hid one on Sunday and it published yesterday, which is average, but I've had them publish in 10 minutes and 5-6 days too.... and - welcome!
  22. Which do you think will happen first? Alamogul reaching 200,000 finds or mondou2 passing Alamogul?
  23. We know of a few folks who'd place a cache 200 feet apart or closer if they could. On some lengthy rail trails, off n on the bike every 528' is already a pain-in-the-can. Closer, just put on those hiking boots... At one time there were quite a few folks asking for much more than the 528' because of this nondescript cache placement "just because I can" silliness.
  24. Why would they need to hide geocaches to battleship the finals? They could just use the saturation checker without actually submitting any caches for review. This is not the first time this topic has come up. Here is one of Keystone's replies to one of the earlier threads: So, suppose I tell you that your proposed location is 110m northwest of the final coordinates for "Cacher Conundrum," a five-star puzzle cache that only four people have ever solved and logged in the past three years. Armed with that intelligence, you track down the container and sign the log at the same time when you move your cache to a spot that's 162m away. What do I get for being helpful? A flaming email from the CO of "Cacher Conundrum," who also posts to three Facebook groups, and files a complaint with Geocaching HQ that I gave away secret information and ruined the puzzle cache. Having had that happen to us enough times, reviewers nowadays are constrained to be less forthcoming with details. Depending on your reviewer, you may get a hint, like "you are less than 161m from "Cacher Conundrum," GCABCDE, or you may get a hint that you should strongly consider moving to the southeast, or you may not get any guidance at all. So, that's how come. In a world where people hack lab caches and share the final coordinates of puzzle caches in Facebook groups, the inevitable outcome of such a feature would be to spoil every puzzle cache, multicache and Wherigo cache, plus a fair percentage of letterbox hybrid caches. There are people who like placing and finding these cache types. Geocaching.com has chosen not to alienate them by ruining the ability to keep the actual locations a secret. "But all I need is a distance and direction," you might say. So, the cheater simply enters enough coordinates into the planner tool to permit them to hone in on the actual location through triangulation. Think that can't happen? Talk to the travel bug stalkers who watch for drops of trackables in unpublished caches so they can figure out the locations and log a pre-publication "FTF." Talk to the group of cachers who hid traditionals in every conceivable spot within two miles of a 5-star puzzle, knowing they'd eventually "battleship" their way to a hit, and then they could do a scorched earth hunt within that area. I foiled them by publishing their cache even though it was 200 feet away from the puzzle final. Reviewers are smart humans*, you see, and that is better than an automated system. *Many reviewers are dogs.
  25. Automated convenience store: any vending machine that has at least such-and-such number of products available on site. Perhaps the minimum number of products would be between 100 and 200 different items.
