Downloading Multiple Waypoints

If your searching by zip code or whatever you should have a full page of waypoints. At the bottom of the page you should be able to click on "Check All" and then do your download and you will get that full page. Works for me all the time.

Thanks, it worked!

Now is there any way to rename them so that I don't just get codes? Or is that what normal geocachers run off?

You may want to just leave them as they are. That way when you find them and change the icon to found it will be easier to log them on the home page. Just my opinion as you can do what ever you want.

Personally, I change the names of mine. With EasyGPS open, highlight the cache you want to rename. Right click on it and select "edit waypoint". Delete the GCH435436 stuff and rename it a short, memorable name.

You also can change the icon that is saved in the GPS unit. I use the etrex Lengend and change the icon to a "Geocache" icon. When I find the cache, I then change the icon to "Geocache found".

 

Good luck and blesses

I was wondering this very same thing. I just got my cable for my basic yellow eTrex and have transferred a few dozen waypoints on it (all with the GC**** name.)

 

If I change the icon when I find one, how do I pull up only those ones I've found? Is there a way to do this?

 

I can just picture me coming back home and having to sort through 300 waypoints trying to find the ones I just did.

 

I guess when I find one, I could change the name from "GC****" to "ZZ****" or something so they'd be easier to go through.

 

Or maybe I should just go wireless so I can mark them on my PDA.

 

EDIT: Ok, I guess I didn't play with it enough...if I download them back off my GPS, I get the icons. Don't mind me...

This has been a strange and somewhat common problem. No one seems to know the reason for it yet. If you yell loud enough, Jeremy will come to the rescue. He seems to be able to fix it instantly. Besides trying to find him, I would log off the site, and then log back on. That seems to work sometimes.

:) I found the fix. !!! First, you must click on the link that says that you have log in, or just log in before. Second, you must read and click that you have read the licence agreement. Third, Then log back out and close your browser.

 

Now... open your browser and log back into the web site. it will allow you to down load any waypoints you want. It has to do with reading the license agreement and logging in and out. After that it seems to work fine. Hope this all make sense and helps.

I didn't know about changing information with EasyGPS. I'll have to give that a try. The name thing in the Etrex is one of the big reasons I didn't buy a Garmin. I went with the Magellan SporTrak Map and it shows you the GC# and actual name when selecting it out of the database.

 

Wish I would have seen this thread sooner, I had run into the can't download waypoints problem. I clicked all over until I noticed that I wasn't logged in. Logged in and it worked fine.

 

One thing to keep in mind. If your GPSr says that it can store 500 waypoints. It can, but the more that are in there, the longer a search will take. And if you are at the maximum, any notes you have in there could be overwritten. Keep the local caches in there and if you are going after a batch, put them in. I always delete the waypoint once I make the find.
