Release Notes (Website: Downloading caches to GPS devices) - August 28, 2018
With today’s website release, we have made updates to how geocaches can be downloaded to GPS devices.
We have removed the ‘Send to GPS’ option from the Geocaching map and the ‘Send to My GPS’ button from cache pages. This functionality has become increasingly unreliable in recent years because modern web browsers do not allow the operating system access required for the plugin to function correct
I would like to speak up for my parents Oldsters Go Play Outside who like "fraager" above are 80 years old and like "horseshoechamp" above have older GPSs that cannot accept a GPX download file directly.
This change has completely blocked my parent’s ability to geocache as they have for the last 14 years.
They have 4 different Garmin GPSMap 60 series devices that they have accumulated over the years and have found over 10,000 caches, all of which were individually loaded
