OREGON 700 GPX

Recommended Posts

Can anyone let me know, how I reliably can transfer GPX files to the

Oregon 700. On my Oregon 300 I simply put them into the Oregon GARMIN/GPX

folder.

 

I tried this on the Oregon 700 and got different results:

- it only listed 6-7 caches, no more

- it only listed nearby caches

- it did not list caches at all

- it lists caches from GPX files already deleted

 

I also tried downloading directly from gc.com by WLAN and got different

results

- it listed the caches, but after power cycling they were gone

- it listed only a few of several caches.

 

I currently have a GPX file holding several caches, put it into the

Garmin/GPX folder, and none of caches is available in the Geocache

list on the Oregon.

 

Thanks.

First check the filters. Another thread mentions that the default setting has a bunch of filters turned on. If it is not it, there are some more complex suggestions that we can give.

check your filters. Unlike the Oregon 300, filters remain activated until you change them, and they affect not only the list of caches, but the map as well.

Thanks for the hint.

 

I already checked filters. I did it again and again, without success.

I deleted the sql file and this way got rid of the ghost caches, i.e.

deleted GPX files with caches still shown.

 

But I still cannot get news GPX shown as caches in geocaching.

FW is 2.60.

If you deleted everything on the GPSr, but caches are still shown, you either didn't delete everything, or you're using a MAC, which requires you to empty the trash after deleting files from GPSr before they are actually deleted.

 

Where are you storing the GPX files? GPSr or uSD card?

 

If you do not see a green progress bar when you boot the 7xx, your new files are not being indexed, and will not be available.

GPX on my GPSr->Garmin/GPX. There is a uSD, an original Garmin with Topo from my 300.

But there are no GPX files on it.

My deletes are always: Shift-DEL on MS-Windows. No way to the recylce bin.

As I already wrote: after deleting the SQL (database file) all ghost caches are gone.

I did this experimenting:

 

- I made sure there were no GPX from geocaches too far away (less than 20miles)

- I downloaded by USB GPX files from geocaches close to each other

--> they did not appear in the list of geocaches

- I made a factory reset

--> I was unable to access the geocaching function any more

I had to re-register my Oregon 700 with geocaching.com

by WiFi/WLAN

- after re-registering there was no geocache in the list of geocaches

- I waited some time, letting the Oregon be online by WiFi/WLAN

- I powercycled the Oregon

- all caches now appeared in the list of geocaches

- I turned off WiFi/WLAN

- geocaches were still present

- I copied some new caches to the Oregon's Garmin/GPX folder by USB

- The caches appeared instantly (after power cycling) in the list of geocaches

- It did not require to go online again by WiFi/WLAN

 

Maybe the Oregon got locked by the firmware update to 2.60, maybe the

registration with geocaching.com faded away to take me into that miserable

situation where no upload of GPX files was possible no more.

 

For the time now everything works fine. Hopefully it lasts a longer time now.

 

(I am still wondering why I had to register and go online by WiFi/WLAN to

make this work. Anyway, as long as this works its fine for me,)
