Hints to GPS

I'm not familiar with your GPSr, but in GSAK, in the Send to GPSr dialogue box, I use this code, %Name=10 %hint, in the "Waypoint Description Format (Comments) blank.

 

I also use this code:

 

%smart=6 %con1%typ1%dif1%ter1

 

for the Waypoint name. That gives me a short version of the Name, the size of the container, the type of cache, then the difficulty and terrain, based on a 10-point scale. :unsure:

You can get away without using a PDA if you load your GPS with all that useful info! :D Edited by TrailGators

forgive the dumb question but I havent messed around with GSAK too much as I just download all caches directly to my gps......but where in GSAK would one find the send to GPSr dialogue box?

I have an Explorist 210. I've saved several cache pages to files and sent them to GPS via the geocaching manager that comes w/ the 210. No hints get transfered. What gives? (files were saved with GSAK).

 

Are you sure that the cache you are looking at actually has a hint? I have a 210 and I get the hint transfered using the Geocaching manager.
