Oregon 550 - spoiler photo's available?

I am considering the purchase of a Garmin Oregon 550 – I used to use a combination of the Garmin GPSMap 60CS and my Touch phone for paperless caching.

 

Does anyone know whether the Oregon 550 supports the download of spoiler photo’s, through the SpoilerSync application? I would like to continue using the SpoilerSync application on the Oregon 550.

 

Or is there another application available that I can use to get Spoiler photo’s from the geocaching website onto the Oregon 550? I am a Premium Member on the geocaching website.

 

Or do the Spoiler photo's automatically get downloaded when the 'pocket query' is saved to the Oregon 550?

 

Please let me know.

 

Thanks from Dubai.

Hans, I tried the Swiss software and find it satisfactory but with a big flaw: as the cache location it's exactly the same as the pictures location, you will not be able to select or view a cache by clicking on it in the map. This is because, being overlapped, the Oregon will always give priority to the picture.

doesn't a mini list box pop up to the right of the selected photo? Whenever I select overlapping waypoints I get a list box that I can select and choose which one I want. Maybe it doesn't work with overlapping photos. Hmm

No, unfortunately no. It would be a very nice touch to have an option to add some distance to the coordinates of each picture in order to avoid this.

I've mentioned that as well. If we know how Garmin is called that icon in it's firmware, we possibly could get rid of it with a Custom Symbol.

 

Happy Hunting
