Number of GPX files on an Oregon
« on: March 29, 2013, 12:21:22 pm »
Why does it say 'Number of GPX files exceeded' with only 99 caches on there, and having had more in the past  :o - is this where PQ's come in?  :D

Oregons have several limits.

Number of caches
Number of GPX files
Size of files

You can reach one limit, before reaching one of the others...

Yes PQ's help, as you can load one GPX file containing multiple caches.

http://garminoregon.wikispaces.com/ is worth bookmarking

Q. How many gpx files can the Garmin Oregon load from the [drive]:\Garmin\GPX directory?
A. 200

Which means 200 individual caches loaded one at a time from the site.

But of course, a GPX file can have more than just one cache in it. My Oregon 300 can take 2000 caches and I usually just have one GPX file containing around 1800 caches in it on my Oregon :)
