Downloading Geocaches to Oregon 400t

Recommended Posts

Its been awhile since I've tried to download geocaches into my Oregon 400t. I'd like to go out today, but having a hard time!.

 

With my Oregeon plugged into my USB port, it's display pops up the computer graphic. I have installed the latest and greatest version of Garmin Communicator plugin for firefox. The test page indicates it can find my device and communication is working. The computer bings a couple timesand pops up the standard Windows XP window "What do you want windows to do?" with a variety of options for an external storage device.

 

When I select a geocache and hit the "Send to GPS Device", windows asks me what I would like to do with the .loc file. Save it , or open it with some application which I must choose.

 

From there I get nothing?

 

Any advice?

The best advice? Get GSAK - the geocaching swiss army knife. It makes Oregon management a breeze.
