remove found caches from map - Oregon 450

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

my question - like mentioned - how can I...

delete / hide the already found caches from the map?

 

I'm (not jet) a premium member - so I can't (or don't want) delete ALL .gpx-files (and not quite sure I tried - and it didn't work well - found caches where still shown although...

 

What I did yet:

removed and zipped some files (from the original-folder) into a new folder (created and done in the windows-explorer). The unzipped files I deleted...:

- geocache_visits.txt

- geocache_logs.xml

 

Result: No change. All the found and not-yet-found caches are shown at the map...

 

What else can I do, shell I do?

 

From october I guess becoming premium member. What should I do in that case?

 

At the end - sorry - I didn't find a fitting or better working guide in the forum - exept the tipps I already did - but beeing not working (at least in MY case..)

 

Thanks a lot for reading and helping and for german readers: I'm german and could also read german advices :-)

Found and not yet found caches will be visible on the map until you change the gpx file(s) the cache information is contained in. I can live with this - I load new gpx files regularly that are delivered via Pocket Query (a Premium Member only feature), and within the setting for the PQ, I define that I want to have my own and my found chaches excluded.

 

Have fun!

The best way is to get to grips with GSAK once you are a PM. Then you can download several general PQ's over the week and then decide what is sent to the GPS by it's filters.

Thanks for the advices.

And sorry for delayed answer.

 

What I did:

I searched for all possible folders / files and zipped it - the files - first (keeping it in the current folder) and after that erased it - the files I zipped and saved it in that way.

 

And this folder by folder. Checking the device for "still working?".

 

Succes: The fund symbols where deleted

Drawback: All the other caches were erased too! ;-)

 

But so I had the chance to handle that topic and to get closer to "my" Caches...

 

Thanks for the answers and good luck seeking and finding all your further caches
