Only corrected coords of Mysterys in PQ

Recommended Posts

I want to create a PQ with only the corrected Mystery coordinates.  How do I do that?

You can't do that with a PQ.

Workaround (NY Paddle something: DO NOT READ THIS):

Search for your caches with CCs. Put all on a Bookmark list. Create a PQ from that BM list.

Put them on a list and create a PQ from there.

I don't see anything wrong with that.  I wouldn't even consider it a workaround since it uses all the tools available through the user interface.  I *do* think it would be nice if one could download from a list directly rather than creating a PQ though.

I have automated this PQ for daily updates so practically I can download it to my app anytime I need.

No need for creating a PQ.
1. Open your list managment
2. Select the list's Hamburger menu.

3. Choose "Send to Garmin".

Where "Garmin" may also be a µSD card with a valid Garmin folder and a valid GarminDevice.xml.

I still find PQs easier to deal with than the Send to Garmin feature. For one, I like to store my cache data on the SD card rather than the Garmin's on-board storage. It's probably an outdated habit stemming from the days when Garmins would frequently corrupt the database upon startup and there was no way to recover cache data if it was on the device itself without connecting to a computer.

But even now, I manage my caches with a 3rd party program and it can grab pocket queries directly from the servers but not bookmark lists. I then create a filter to show only solved puzzles alongside regular caches.

Thanks for all comments. I now update my garmin from my smartphone because I want to refresh on the move. I do not take a Windows computer with me on vacation. I download a PQ on my smartphone, pick it up and place it on my garmin. That's fine. Via the list I can now set all corrected coordinates on my Garmin. But how can I refresh quickly and easily if I have solved a mystery again?

After solving the mystery: put the cache from the cachepage directly to the BM list. You'll have to open the cache in a browser window on your smartphone to do so.

I guess I hadn't tried that but will that dialog box show if you haven't connected a Garmin GPS to your computer?  From a UX perspective it isn't very friendly to label a menu item "Send to Garmin" if you're not actually sending the results to a Garmin.  The addition of a "Download" link on that hamburger menu which allows one to save a GPX file of the results onto a local computer (perhaps, so that it can be loaded into a waypoint manager such as GSAK) is all I'm asking for.

Please read again (if in doubt 2 or 3 times):

You might then open the file with GSAK from the µSD (it's a drive as well) card like every other Gpx file.

NB: You can download owned BM lists directly to GSAK via Groundspeaks Api. No need for a PQ or other "workarounds".
