GPSmap62s and GPX files
« on: April 25, 2014, 15:05:12 »
I'd like to load multiple caches into my new GPSmap62s, without using GSAK.
Right now if I check off multiple caches from a list (e.g. "find nearby caches that I haven't found") and hit "Download", then EasyGPS opens but only has a .loc file (ie summary info) that I can send to my GPSr.
I want to go paperless and get the full cache info available in a .GPX file.
Any inputs gratefully received.

Using that method, you will only get a .loc file.

Using pocket queries is the method to use to the paperless information you are looking for.

I don't use EasyGPS, so I have no information how it works with GPX files.

In general, you can run a pocket query, download the generated file, unzip and copy the .gpx file to the \Garmin\GPX folder on your GPS and you're good to go.
Two things to check off (place a checkmark beside) in your pocket query is "I haven't found" and "I don't own".

I use multiple PQ's; I have one just for trads, one for puzzles, multi's, etc.

EasyGPS will open and send GPX files with no trouble, but if you want multiple caches loaded on you'll have to do it from a pocket query.
