Hello,

 

I recently had to reinstall my operating system and have come across a recurrance of an old problem once i reinstalled Garmin Mapsource.

 

For some reason it always missed the geocaching.wlx weblink plugin that allows me to right click on the map and find close geocaches, which is really handy.

 

Last time i managed to find a copy via google, but for the life of me i cant find one to download this time around.

 

Would be great if anyone has a copy they could send me or a link to somewhere i can download.

 

Many thanks (apologies if this has been asked alot, i did search but it kept timing out)

Save as geocaching.wlx

What about searching just Trad caches for example?

And a question - do exists something similar to use it at Waymarking.com same way?

Tried to Copy/paste the suggested code in Notepad. But when i tried to install it in Mapsource I got a message that the file was not a Garmin web-link file. (when I stored it in Notepad a got the message that I had to store it in Unicode). What have i done wrong?

Sorry, I missed the replies to this.

 

It can give you problems if the text is in a font/language that you dont have installed on your computer.

 

Here is a simplified one with english only...

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<weblink xmlns="http://www.garmin.com/xmlschemas/WebLinkExtensions/v1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

Open notepad....

copy/paste that text...

save as.... then select

File name: geocaching.wlx

Save as type: All files

Encoding: UTF-8

 

Should work just fine like that.

 

 

As far as one for Waymarking.com.... you should be able to look at the format of the file and the format used at Waymarking and make the required changes to the file.
