Transfering From Pda To Gsak

Recommended Posts

My PDA with Cachemate has over a hundred entries in the found category.

I'd like to put them into a GSAK database,

 

When I click on "receive waypoints" I get the error message:

receiving waypoints

 

error sending waypoints

Garmin: Can't init COM1

 

I tried closing the hotsync in the system tray, but that didn't make any difference.

 

Any ideas?

thx

jimmy :anicute:

Are you trying to read the PDA cachemate database directly from GSAK?

 

I don't think that's among GSAK's native capabilities.

 

There's a program from Smittyware that will convert a hotsynced cachemate pdb file already on your PC to a form that GSAK can read and there are some macros available on gsak.net to help with that, but I'm pretty sure you'll need to customize the macros to fit your need.

 

You might try the forums on GSAK's website to see if anyone has a better answer for you.

Hi

On the toolbar it says GPS, when I click that, it says "receive waypoints"

It looks simple, it just isn't working for me.

You can not receive waypoints from a PDA like froma GPSr. The receive option is for GPSrs, not PDAs.

 

You "Export Logs" from the Cachemate menus. This places the log information into the memopad which uploads on the next hotsync.

thx for putting me on track, tried that, and cachemate kept putting numbers up till it got to the 99

I have in the found category, but when I looked in memo's, only 2 caches were there!

 

How to get all of them ? :smile:
