Does it say what file is missing?

 

Otherwise I'm just guessing.....

 

Do you have the Garmin Point of Interest Loader? The macro in the video is using it to send the POIs to his device, but he does not seem to mention it and if it is not there then you could get a file missing mesage. http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/ You may need to run it once to point it to where the macro creates the files, the you can probably set the macro to run the poi loader automatically.

 

Did you get and install the macro itself? It does not automatically come with GSAK.

There are two ways to have geocaching icons on the GPSMap60, one uses the way points and the other uses POI's.

 

Waypoints = It is possible to add the custom icons in your receiver into geocache symbols and then use another macro in GSAK so that when you transfer wapoints to your machine they use the symbols. Note that this is only for waypoints and you only get 1000 of those and next to no information compared to the POI, but it allows you to use "map declutter" (turns off POI's) and still have caches on the map (the POI info can still be found with find/custom points of interest, just that they do not show up on the map) The second to last entry here: http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=5643&st=0& contains a .zip file that should have all the images, the macro, and the instructions in a .pdf .

 

There is another macro at the bottom of this thread: http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=3172 That creates POI's with geocaching symbols. It is different from the one in your video in that it will not create the entire cache description in POIs, only one or two for the cache name and a few other things but no description, and then I think it will use as many as it takes for the hint? but I am not sure on that. This will create POI's with the symbols tho. **It creates it's POIs to a totally different folder than the video macro and so will require you to manually run the POI loader to tell it where the POIs are again, also run it manually to remove old POI's.

 

Have a look through the GSAK forums and macro list, maybe there is something new since I started using these? anyway, Hope these help.

Yes, by segregating them into separate GPX files in the POI folder, and creating icons with the same file name (but different extension). For example:

Traditional.gpx

Traditional.bmp

Mystery.gpx

Mystery.bmp

Multi.gpx

multi.bmp

Thats what the GSAK POI generating macro from my second post does, except with CSV files.
