'Here I am' button for a Magellan eXplorist 310

Recommended Posts

FIgured out the pocket query thing and how to dump the list generated into our newly purchased 310. Took it into the field today and could not figure out how to reset the list of caches based on that location. Isn't there a 'Find Nearby GEocaches' button on the MAgellan like there is on my smartphone? Thx for the help folks!!!!

I'm not familiar with Magellans, but perhaps it didn't recognize where you were because it hadn't locked onto enough satellites yet? I'm also guessing there's a basic map that you can view on a Magellan that would show the closest caches to where you are. Good luck!
