Emptying my GPS

Recommended Posts

Hi I have looked everywhere on how to empty my GPS but to no avail.

 

So my question is how do I do this?

 

If you look on the bottom you will see a small threaded plug. Unscrew that and all the found caches will drain out. :blink: Seriously, if you tell us what GPS you have it would be easier to give you a straight answer. :)

The first question would probably be...What model of GPS unit do you use? Each model, as well as brand is gonna be different so gonna have to be more specific.

You don't need to know what type of GPS the OP has. Just transfer all the waypoints to your computer and separate the waypoints you've marked from geocaches. Then clear ALL the waypoints on your device and restore the waypoints that weren't geocaches.

Seems simple, doesn't it. The paperless garmins are we talking POI's, waypoints or gpx files? Each is handled a different way. You might not have any waypoints with the paperless units, they might all be gpx files. Or they could all be POI files. If they are POI's or gpx files the unit can not clear the files. The non-paperless units are dealt with different that the paperless units. I have no idea how Delorme, Magellen, Lowrance or any of the others handle this task. No, we need to know the GPS model and how they were loaded.

What is the make/model of your device? There are a few techniques.

On my Garmin 62s, i plug into my computer w/win 7, go to the Garmin file, open the gpx sub file and delete the files. If there is an easier way, I'd love it.
