Codes not Waypoint Names

Recommended Posts

Since I've been using GSAK and downloading geocaches waypoints to my Garmin 60csx it shows up on the Garmin 60csx GPS screen as Waypoint Names. It use to show up as a Code name.

How do I set this so it again shows up as a Code not a Waypoint Name.

In other words I want it to so like this:  GC85HK8     not as the waypoint name of Edgerton Cache

 

Thank You,

Rotgut

Have you checked the GSAK Forums? That is a different company with its own forums.

Nothing to do with GSAK.

On my Oregon600 it's selectable in Setup > Geocaching >  Show names/show codes so it's probably something similar on a 60csx (reading the manual might help ;)).

Set the tag "%code" (without quotes) into the waypoint name field when exporting.

Like this:

Thank you for your help.  I have read the manual. It doesn't say anything about this.

I asked this question on GSAK's forum; alas no one has replied yet.

I went to Setup on the GPS and choice Geocaching. There wasn't an option there.

I'll keep trying to solve this.

Thank You

Just follow my advice given in my post above. 🙄

In the case it' not obvious: You'll reach that export/send window by hitting: GSAK > Menu > GPS > Send Waypoints ...
