Geocache information on a Montana 680T

Recommended Posts

Hi.  New unit I am just beginning with.  When I select a cache to go for, I can get the Description and I can get logs but nothing else, like no hints or photos.  Is this correct or am I not finding or displaying something correctly?

thanks

Terry

Photo's: no (unless you use a special Macro in GSAK)

Hints: When you actively navigate to a Cache , the you will get  a seperate 'hint'menuitem in the Geocache-menu

You can create appropriate folders manually:

Folder name convention:
[G:\Garmin\GeocachePhotos\Last Character\Second To Last Character\Full Code\Your images.jpg]

Does that actually associate the image with the geocache on the GPS?

Well whatdaya know, it still works on the Oregon 600 - with some minor changes. Photos are accessed not from a new menu item, but from a photo icon on the logs page. And photos have to be installed on the GPS itself, not the SD card.

Yes, never told anything different. ;-)

Well, that's both useful and an incredible pain in the a** (for someone without GSAK).
