? Can this be done ?

Recommended Posts

I currently own a Garmin 255W that has been updated to the latest version of software and maps for the United States. There is an SD port on the machine that will accept a 4GB SD chip.

 

Is there a way to store all the Geocache codes for Mississippi on an SD chip, then insert the chip into the 255W --> that way, as I drive down the highway, I will get geocache points shown in the machine, and if I select a point, the actual coords will be displayed ? I'l continue to use my hand-held for final location ..........

I store cache locations as favorites so they show as I'm driving on my 1490, I do it by loading them all into basecamp and then sending them to my nuvi, but it should also work (?) by creating PQs and loading them into your GPX folder, either on your nuvi or on a card ... if on a card you'll need to create a GPX folder and put them in that :)

You can load them as favorites but are limited to a maximum number of favorites by the GPS, probably 1000. You can also use Garmin’s POI Loader with no number limit but the caches are not displayed visually unless you are zoomed way in.
