How to Clear Waypoints from eTrex Venture HC

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

So I figured out the pocket query thing, and downloaded 500 caches that are close to my house. Very cool! Unfortunately, I'm out of memory on my eTrex Venture HC, and I don't know how to clear out the waypoints so that I can add a subset of the 500 caches I imported. The only way I see to do this is to go 1 by 1. There has to be a better way, right?

 

If it helps, I'm using Garmin's RoadTrip software on a Mac.

 

Thanks!

You can format the unit by holding down the power/page/enter buttons simultaneously for three seconds.

This will however delete all of the units info, so be sure anything you want to keep is backed up into mapsource.

Ahhh...found a better way than just resetting the unit...if you go to Find | Waypoints (or Geocache), and then hit the menu button, you can select delete and then you're all set. Thanks!

Just remember a Pocket Query of 500 caches may/will have more than 500 waypoints.

 

If a cacher adds parking details, trailhead, parts of a multi -these are all in the PQ, so add up to more than 500 waypoints.
