(Mac / GPS users) How to use GPS Pro with Geocaching.com

Recommended Posts

I recently got GPS Pro along with the connector cables and while I can move waypoints from my yello, Garmin eTrex


I do not know how to get the Geocaching.com downloads onto the eTrex.


The checked box/downloaded files are saved as a .loc onto my computer and I can't find a way to get the waypoints onto my eTrex.


Can someone give me hints or walk me through this via a reply?

In MacGPSPro select "Utilities->Convert XML LOC file to Waypoints or Routes..." then browse to your geocaching .loc file. You will then get a dialog that lets you limit the waypoints to a specific area (normally just leave it at the defaults), the next dialog prompts you for a file to save the converted file to (this is a MacGPSPro WP file), normally I will just select the "To Map Only" option, which will just plonk them onto the map. Then upload to your eTrex the same way as you have been doing ("Transfer->To GPS->Waypoints...")
