Garmin GPSmap 60CSx and geocaches

I have a new Garmin GPSmap 60CSx and have done some geocaching locally. We are going to Indiana and I wanted to hit some geocaches in mid-Ohio along the way. I entered several from find geocaches on line (just like i did for the local caches). When I hit the find button and select geocaches only the local ones show. So I removed all the local ones thinking they were blocking the more distant ones. No! Now nothing showes. How do I see if the caches I loaded for mid Ohio are on the unit?

Thanks,
George

    This does not even begin to address my question/problem. It is a blatant advertisement/scam. If FixYa has any balls, you will ban this person for taking advantage of your site. This in no way relieves you of refunding me my money since this does not address my problem.

Search for them "by name" instead of "by nearest"

Find>waypoints>find>menu>enter>by name

Only the nearest 50 caches show up and then only if they are within 50 miles.

Geocache list doesn't show on gps


Basecamp is displaying the contents of the gpx file. This means you've correctly imported the gpx file into Basecamp.

A copy of the gpx file needs to be separately saved into the "GARMIN/GPX" folder on your GPS via USB and your computer. (Note: I believe your Oregon has the same file structure as my Garmin Montana).

On startup, your GPS will read the new data and display the caches.

Poi software on win7 doesn't find the gps 60


If you're using a serial connection, make sure you have the proper port selected. Otherwise use a USB connection.
If your unit has a removeable memory card, save your POIs to that before inserting the card.
If you're trying to load geocaches, there is a free program that really helkp with that. Download GSAK (Geocache Swiss Army Knife) http://www.gsak.net/.. It works great.

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.

The coordinates that I get are 30 metres off from the other GPS units that we geocache with. My settings must be off.


Yes, have you enabled WAAS on your 60CSx? WAAS is an acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, according to the instruction manual an FAA funded service to improve overall integrity of the GPS signal through North America.

If you are in an area which is not serviced by ground stations, having WAAS enabled may degrade the signal from the GPS satellites. Try enabling or disabling this feature.

To do so, acess the System Startup Page. On the Setup Menu page, highlight the System icon and press Enter. WAAS is the second available setting on this page.

Make sure your batteries are fresh; I prefer alkalines in this model. Set the battery type in the System Setup Page, same page as noted for WAAS above.

Another thought is to be sure you have the latest Garmin software installed. Visit their site to download the latest and greatest, free, of course.

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.

Problems with Garmin set up


Firstly, have you downloaded the locations of caches to your Vista HCx, either from the garmin website or from Geocaching.com? which are the sites that I would recommend.

If you haven't done so, then you have to do that before you can be guided to the caches. On those websites it asks for the location from where you want to look for caches, then lists suitable caches which you can download to your unit, by connecting the USB cable that was provided with it.

Once you have done this, using the find geocache function will bring up a list of the caches that you have downloaded, listed by their geocaching ID. You can, by pressing the menu buttom on the left hand side, select the option to have the caches listed in order of how close to your location they are. To find a little more detail, select the cache with the rocker switch, and press the switch down, which brings up a screen with a bit more detail of the cache.

Hope this helps.

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.

My map on my garmine 60csx doesnt line up with the actual locations


The most common cause of consistent offset is DATUM selection. The DATUM was likely set to WGS84 at the time of recording then viewed later in NAD27, or vice versa.

Geocaching.com uses WGS84. The USGS generally uses NAD27

Also see this Garmin page. The DATUM is set under Settings | System if I recall correctly.

Garmin 60cx or 60csx


The marine version of the 60 series is the 76. Same insides, different case. I assume that's what they meant.

Either one will geocache (actually, any will but it's easier in some units than others.).
