Transferring pocket queries

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Am new to this and would appreciate some help please.

 

Technology is not my strong point.

 

I have created my first pocket query.

 

It appears on my computer, my app on my smartphone and my app on my Nexus 7 so I know it exists.

 

I connected my Dakota 20 to my computer, right clicked on the file and pressed 'send to Dakota 20'

 

I cannot find it on my GPS anywhere. When I go to Geocaches there is just the one Geocache that I downloaded individually.

 

I hope that makes sense......please can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

 

Thank you

Transfer to GPS only sends 1 cache at a time. I believe with the Garmin attached to your computer you can drag and drop the unzipped pq from your computer to the proper folder on your GPSR.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I am afraid to say I wouldn't even know where to find the proper folder on my gps :(

 

I will have another go

I have just tried to drag and drop the unzipped file into my GPS and a box comes up to say this file already exists in the location I am trying to drop it to ... :(

When I do access the Garmin as an auxiliary drive on the computer it tells me the file already exists.

 

I am trying to save it directly to the device , I do not have an SD card in it.

 

Perhaps that is where I am going wrong!

 

I will look at the tutorial and persevere.

 

Thanks again

It isn't necessary to have an SD card. The files will be held in mass storage in a folder named Garmin/GPX.

I have found the files and I send to GPS. I watch it download...I just can't find it on the GPS itself. There is still only one geocache listed under 'geocaches'.

 

Think I will give up for today and try again tomorrow.

 

Thanks for your time
