loading caches to GPS easy gps
Posted 15 April 2012 - 06:43 AM
How in simple terms do I transfer the cache details from local GS. page to Easygps and then bulk load to my etrex.
Sure I have once done it but unable to remember how.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Using a PQ is certainly easier. It depends on which eTrex you have, though. I think, but am not certain, that some of them do not support .gpx files.

Very correct! the older eTrex series (Vista-HCx and older) are prime examples, and require some medium to translate them.. (I.E. EasyGPS, which I've used many times before.)
The older eTrex models also have a limit of how many you can transfer too.. The Vista-HCx, maxes out at 1000 waypoints.. (read this as absolute maximum! If your any of the 1000 caches have child waypoints, they're going to take-up one waypoint themselves, and all 1000 won't fit with them!)
Pretty sure the Classic-Yellow, and the "H" model there-of, also had a maximum of 500..
