Sending Caches to Forerunner 910XT

Recommended Posts

I've been unable to send geocaches to my new Garmin Forerunner 910XT from geocaching.com...

 

Has anyone else had any success? I send it from geocaching.com and a message says that it has been written to my device but I can't find it anywhere on the watch.

If I try sending it again I get a message saying that the location already exists on the watch - it's definitely not there. I think it just gets sent to a local file on my computer rather than the watch.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

Al.

Looks like if you want to get any waypoint info to navigate to you have to do it through the Garmin Connect web page. Even then your having to create a route so each cache you want to visit is a point along the rout. Its not exactly a Geocaching friendly device.

Hmm, that's a shame - Although, I can enter a waypoint onto the 910XT manually and navigate to it without any problems - It actually works really well and seems really accurate, it's just that I'd like to be able to send the waypoint info to it without having to type them in individually.

 

I used to be able to send geocaches to my Forerunner 305 from the geocaching.com website but that was via USB not via ANT+ - It is not possible to send them via ANT+?

I'm having the same trouble. Been sending caches to Garmins 205 & 305, but not having any luck on the 910XT from either GC.com or from GSAK.

I've spoken with Garmin about this and it isn't possible to send geocaches to the 910XT - The only way is to add a waypoint manually. :(

 

Shame that, but I guess it isn't designed as a geocaching tool.

The same problem with geocaching.com, O.K., then I use my garmin forerunner 910 xt only for traininng and look another GPS device.

I have the same problem with my 310XT which is disappointing as I upgraded to it from my geocache compatible 205 after it was stolen. Should have looked for a 205 on ebay
