+The Puzzler Posted August 18, 2004 Share Posted August 18, 2004 With the recent gift of a new Garmin Geko 301 GPS and data cable , I am about to invest a fair bit of time into trying to streamline my handling of GeoCaching data. Cost is an issue. What tools are others of you out there using to hunt geocaches efficiently? In the past, I have printed out Cache pages and maps, organized them in a filing system, and either used a map and compass, or entered data into a GPS by hand for hunting purposes. The system works great, but uses up a lot of paper, requires a printer, and leads to a fair bit of time entering data into my GPSr by hand. But, I have a Palm computer that I can download Geocaching data to and a GPS I can download way points to. I also have a laptop that I can connect my GPS to. What software/hardware combinations do you use with notebooks and/or palm computers that allow you to most effiently download and organize your cache hunting? What do you like and not like about the different combinations of tools that you do use and/or have used in the past? I don't want this thread to be so much a discussion of software and hardware, but rather an evaluation of different combinations of tools that work well for people specifically for geocaching. Thanks for your thoughts. Quote Link to comment
