How do I display cache names to map of caches?

Recommended Posts

Seems simple, but can't figure this out.  Have a .gpx with a bunch of caches I want to find.  I would like to be able to print maps of the caches with the names visible on the map.  Right now all I see are the macros for the caches, but no names.  Any help?  I do have gsak if that helps, even though I'm a novice user of it.

You should be able to do this with the ‘Leaflet Maps V0.1’ macro in GSAK.

I print maps and write the cache names on. I also use the maps to make field notes as I go.

Download GCSE.gsk macro and install it.

Download Garmin custom Symbols

create a directory under “my documents/my garmin/custom waypoints symbols”

place all files in the appropriate directory, here you can download the files and get instructions where to place them:


In the waypoint symbol directory now should be “garminother.txt” and the symbols.



Select the database you want to be displayed

-- If you have Mapsource installed:

Select  File – Export – Garmin Mapsource

Check “use macro for symbol generation”

Enter “GCSE.gsk

click Generate



-- If you have Bascamp installed:

Hope this will work for you.

Why not use GSAK's own maps?
