Can anyone help me? I have a Garmin 62s and would like to delete all the logs from the unit. There are a lot of caches loaded for events that I know I won't get back to find and would like to have everything cleared out. Thanks!

 

Connect to the computer, navigate to the Garmin folder, and delete the GPX files.

Could also be worth deleting the "geocache_visits.txt" file, as per http://www.geocaching.com/my/uploadfieldnotes.aspx

4 We recommend that you delete the "geocache_visits.txt" file on your device once your Field Notes have been successfully uploaded.

 

NB. It seems it could be beneficial after deleting the files*, to disconnect the unit, start it, and confirm there are no caches on it.

 

* If you use a Mac, empty the trash/bin before disconnecting.

I would also like to weigh in here-as it took me forever to figure the Basecamp trick out. The garmin 60 would allow you to delete directly on the GPS unit. with 62, you MUST connect to a computer. My next question is that when I arrive at a geocaching area, I mark my waypoint so I can find my way back.....after completing my caches, I find the waypoint and the map will point me there but I can not get the compass to take me there. It will only take me to the nearest cache that I have not logged as found. Is there any way around that I can use the compass to get me to a waypoint that isn't a geocache. PS the manual is useless for geocaching.
