GPS Can't Find newly Loaded Caches

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced my most faithful Garmin 550 with a new Garmin eTrex Touch 35. This new device came preloaded with approximately 250,000 caches. However when I go to  download a new cache the eTrex does not seem to find it. All it shows me when I am on the ground and close to GZ for the new cache are the preloaded caches. I have missed out on a couple of FTF's. I can see the new cache in the GPX folder. I have tried downloading two ways, one directly to the GPS or by downloading to my computer then dragging the new cache to the GPX folder. I have checked the manual and appear to be doing things correctly. What is the problem? Also is there a way of getting rid of the preloaded caches once and for all? It shows me caches that I have already found on my old 550.  Thanks Cleo1

First of all you might want to delete the preloaded caches. They should be in the garmin\ggz directory as *.ggz file

Check the filter settings.

Copying the cache's GPX to the garmin\gpx folder should do the trick.

I have an Oregon 600 and occasionally I have had issues with it displaying caches from GPX files when both a GPX and GGZ file are present. Weird. And it's not always a problem.
