Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor sporting activity using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to hide and seek the geocache (container) hidden at that location (anywhere in the world).

My GPS has a warning sign that comes on when I turn it on saying 1000 GPX files loaded.Please consolidate additional files, I can't download any new caches I get can you tell me anything to fix it.


It sounds like the maximum number of GPX file types your GPS can manage is 1,000. You'll need to delete as many existing GPX files as there are new that you want to add, ie: If you want to add 150 new waypoints (a.k.a. Geocaches a.k.a. GPX files) you'll should delete 151 (or more) GPX files from the GPS. That way, you'll have 999 GPX files loaded - and won't see the message complaining of 1,000 GPX files.
Running with a minimal number of GPX files may allow your device to run faster - as it doesn't need to load and calculate distances for 1,000 GPX file points. Less can be more - if you don't do CITO, Webcam, Multis, etc. or any type that has a difficulty / terrain ratings greater than 2 or 3, don't even download them. It's just clutter for your GPS to track and manage.
Look at the filters to select the types you want - either on Geocaching.com or the software (GSAK?) you use assemble and prepare for loading them into your GPS.

I have a Garmin etrex legend, and when I enter the Lat and Long for geocaching on either the lat and long, I cannot enter the numbers 5 thru 9 into it. An example is, I can enter N 39-7.178. The blank...


Go to Main Menu > Setup > Units > Position Format > change to hddd.ddddd format. This is the decimal format which is widely used by geocaching forums.

I have a Garmin 250 Nuvi. I would like to do some


No this is a road navigation only unit. For a cheap entry level GPS that you can use for Geocaching, take a look at the Garmin eTrex series. For a top of the line, consider a GPS60csx or the new Oregon series from Garmin.

I want to go Geocaching and I want to know how to enter Lat/Long or update my equipment to this?


well i'm a great geocacher and i love to help people with the GPS'rs
so you found the guy :))))
It may not be the easiest approach, but you could create a custom POI file for your Geocache locations and then load them into your c330 using POI Loader.

If you're a premium member on Geocaching.com, it's my understanding that you can download locations in GPX format. POI Loader is supposed to read GPX files, but I haven't tried it with geocache locations yet.

Do you have a geocaching account that can download GPX files?

Someone told me that you can use Long/Lat with Google Earth, and you can save Google Earth POI's in GARMIN .cvs format, to use in the PIO Loader.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX


The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.
If this solves your situation, please come back and rate our answer. Thankyou.

you should search for mapdate (kaartdatum in dutch) and select WGS84, it's a preference all geocachers use
