You have over 1300 finds to your name. What part specifically isn't working that had been working previously?

As a Premium Member, are you using Pocket Queries for downloading of multiple caches (up to 1000 caches per Pocket Query) in one file to your GPS or are you trying to download just one cache's information at a time to your GPS?

I'm still unclear. You've found over 1300 geocaches so far. What has changed? How did you find all of those caches in the past? Did you have a different GPS? Were you using a cell phone? What has changed for you since last year when you logged your last find?

I have found my caches with my gps.But for the last year or so i have been using mi phone. ever since I put windows 10 in my computer I have never bin able to send to gps direct.

I am going back europe next year and would like to use my gps to do some caching instead of my phone.

Ok. Now we have the culprit. The "Send to GPS" function used the now defunct Garmin Communicator Plugin.

You could always put GPX files directly on your GPS, which is what you will have to do from now on (you can use the "Send to Garmin" feature with Garmin Express, but it can sometimes not work well.)

Pocket queries come packaged as a Zip file, and must be unzipped first. In Windows, I think you just right-click and extract.

The GPX files then go into the GPX folder on your 62s. Keep in mind that if you're loading caches in Europe, and you are not in Europe, the GPS won't list them because they are too far away, though they will show up if you scroll the map to the location of the cache. For now, practice loading local geocaches to make sure you have the process working.
