oregon 450 prob?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, got my new oregon 450 yesterday. My first handheld and i love it more than the mrs already ;)

Problem i have is in geocaching i cannot get get the hints, descriptions etc... as it says i need premier membership...which i am.

Any ideas guys and girls...pilling my hair out.


You'll need to transfer the caches (either individually, or as a group from a pocket query) using the GPX file. If you are transferring them using the LOC file, you won't get the full set of information.


As a premium member you have access to Pocket Queries which is the best way to get a large lot of caches to your device. Just take the GPX file that you get e-mailed, and drop it in your X:\Garmin\GPX directory (where x: is the drive letter on your computer for your GPS when connected in Mass Storage Mode).

Also I found if I use mapsource to transfer caches, the info doesn't show up. Howver if I use Basecamp or just drag the gpx files onto the gps, everything shows. I'm just learning this thing. Mines a 550 but I suspect they behave the same.
