PQ Problem
« on: December 06, 2013, 06:14:57 pm »
So, recently I've only been using pocket queries to load caches on to my GPS.

But the .zip file I download and subsequently copy and paste in to the GPX folder of my GPS isn't showing the caches when I go on the GPS itself. This sounds odd, right?

So I copy the .zip file in.
Turn on the GPS to check the caches are there, and they are not. As if I'd never pasted the file.

However, after a while of pasting it in a lot more times, a folder (with GPX files, which are needed of course) shows up, and then the caches appear on the GPS  :o

Anyone have any clue what's going on, and why the GPX files take so long to appear  ???

Odd. At the click of the .zip file, the GPX file appeared  :o ::)

The .zip file needs to be un-zipped, and then the ,gpx and wpts .gpx file copied to the GPS.

http://www.follow-the-arrow.co.uk/resources/paperless.html#gotinfo has some good instructions.
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!
