Sending Bulk caches to my GPS

Recommended Posts

I have figured out how to send a set of coordinates to my eTrex Vista, one at a time...

but i have not figured out a way to select many caches, and upload all at once.

Any ideas?

Create a PQ, download the PQ from the "Pocket Queries Ready to Download" tab, unzip the file and save the GPX files. Use Mapquest to upload them to your eTrex.

Thanks!

I created the PQ, emailed it to myself, then saved it.

I uploaded it to my Vista via EASYGPS, (i just downloaded it for free)

 

It worked!!

Now - is there an easy way to delete waypoints, rather than one at a time?

Im not sure how many the Vista Hcx can hold, either way if I find a cache,

do i delete it? or click FOUND? Not sure what these do on the GPS.

 

Thanks again!

On your Vista, go to Find...Geocaches. Press the Menu button (bottom one on the left). Select Delete. This will delete all your caches. Just load the caches from a new PQ and your done!

 

eTrex Hcx will hold 1000 caches. If you select 1000 caches the PQ will not be emailed to you, just a link and you have to download from GC.com
