Garmin / Re: Automotive GPS fro Geocaching
« Last post by bluelamb03 on July 29, 2019, 10:00:56 »
I use my smartphone and my MAP60Csx.

I use the Cachly app for searching and filtering caches, either live or from an offline list. Then I select the cache I wish to navigate to and use my choice of Apple, GOOGLE or WAZE maps to navigate to the target with turn by turn prompts, voice prompts and even alternate routes.

A dedicated car GPS seems wasteful when the smartphone does the job even better.

Garmin / Automotive GPS fro Geocaching
« Last post by Tegiro on April 11, 2019, 10:41:13 »
Can someone please give me an idea as to what is the best car GPS to use for travelling to geocache sites?
Thank you

I have used a Garmin 50 to drive near my geocache sites for many years. I then use my Garmin 60CSx to find the caches.
Lately, this has been failing me, so I purchased a Garmin Drive 51.
My Garmin Drive 51 only shows one cache at a time. And I know there are dozens nearby. I don't know how to correct this and it bothers me.
However I wonder if others use similar car Garmin GPS to drive to their cache sites.
Are there better GPS for the car that will show all caches on the maps?

Any help or ideas please?

My Pc fried so now I managed to load Mapsource again.  How do I add maps to mapsource.   It's been a while.  HELP!

You don't need a Garmin to have free Mapsource.

Thanks Mike,I managed to download mapsource now.   I still can't download maps.  Sigh.  I can't even remember how to get the NCC trails into mapsource.   I've got a bunch of maps in my GPS but unless they are installed on mapsource. they don't transfer in.  Sigh.  I suck at this sort of stuff.  LOL

Chuck doesn't solve puzzle caches, he just looks in the tree and they are there.....

I see what you're trying for here, but it's a one trick pony, so I'm not sure it's going to get a lot of votes.

There has been some discussion already though, my favourite so far is "GAG27 - Fun & Games":

Board games, video games, sports games. What's your favourite game?

GAG (Go and Get 'Em) / Next GAG theme suggestion

Hi everyone,

It so happen that lately, I realized that some of my younger work colleague didn't know about Chuck Norris. It quickly become a running joke at the office, where the "older" or more "general-knowledge savvy" use it to laugh. Sad thing though, is that obviously the legend (as controversial it may have been) is dying. Obviously I start thinking on how I could use that for geocaching... and I can see many possibility.

So, if I may offer a suggestion for a theme = Chuck Norris

"Chuck doesn't have to look for caches. Caches fear him and show themselves when he gets close."

I had a similar experience this past Saturday with TigrePlus.  I remember finding Autobot #31 fairly quickly on the day of publication; it was actually visible from a distance if you looked in the right place.  On Saturday TigrePlus had to bend down and almost crawl under the Autobot to retrieve the log; he wasn't able to retrieve the container (as if it had been glued in place but maybe it was just stuck in a bit of ice) and had to access the log from a somewhat uncomfortable position.

I baffles me why someone would move a cache thinking it's a better place or is it to stump others.    Today, I found the cache GC80NN6 ML179 Easy Micro Logic by Ma & Pa.  I found it in early afternoon in a spot easy to find and certainly hard for muggles to spot.   I was probably the fourth or fifth to sign, after KCoteSometime between my find and about 2 hours later, a 'buddy' called me to ask where I had found it.  When I described the location (which was easy to find for me), this 'buddy' used a flashlight and spotted it 'shoved' into a hole.   A tool was needed to retrieve it.  Subsequently, others had the same experience.   Had to spot who actually was the guilty party.  Suffice it to say, I really feel that we need to educate users.  Perhaps CCC Workshops may not target the culprits but it might be valuable to mention it.     Frustrating.  Have others encountered the same?
