  1. GSAK Use

    Thanks. But, I only want to show selected child waypoints, nor all.
  2. GSAK Use

    It's a little embarrassing to admit this but I've not figured out how to use Child waypoints in GSAK. From the screen capture below, you can see I know how to check the box that I think activates the waypoint, but then I can't figure out to use/see it. Occasionally I'd like to have the parking location in my 64s, but I don't know how.
  3. Cachly?

    I'm pleased with Cachly
  4. Cachly?

    I don't have a smartphone but my wife has an iPhone. Against her wishes I plan to install a Geocaching app on it. Is Cachly the best one currently available?
  5. Google Earth Pro?

    Yes, thanks. I learned about it when you mentioned it some time ago. I've used it several times. But, if you want to understand the two mile radius a given puzzle must be within then you need to draw a circle on GE.
  6. Google Earth Pro?

    A new icon appeared on my desktop this morning -- Google Earth Pro. So what does it do plain Jane Google Earth doesn't?
  7. GC.com's name search

    it does
  8. Does GC's name search not work right anymore? I've searched for three names in the past couple of weeks and it just sits there -- doesn't say couldn't find that name, nothing. I searched just now for Georeynozos and got the same result.
  9. Google Earth Pro?

    That's right. I just used the circle drawer to determine the zone where a puzzle could be located.
  10. What's With Haunted Hides?

    I've never done anything deliberately before to get a souvenir, but I have a handful. In looking at peoples profiles I noticed this icon for "Haunted Hides." I had to google it but it seems you get a souvenir if you found a cache on certain days last year. Turns out I did, but I have no haunted hides souvenir. So, what's the deal?
  11. Google Earth Pro?

    Drawing circles would be useful. If you can do that in the plain version I don't know how.
  12. Google Earth Pro?

    Thanks. So, it doesn't have much advantage over ordinary GE?
  13. What's With Haunted Hides?

    Thanks for the replies. I got no message or email.
  14. Cachly?

    Thanks for the comments. I got Cachly. It has a learning curve but it seems to do what I want nicely or is that cachly (moan).
  15. Cachly?

    Thanks. I don't know what a "really current" iPhone is but she has a 6s. jim
  16. Looks Like a Great Event

    Solar Eclipse event I stole this simulation
  17. fainter & fainter

    That looks like a group that could be helpful. I joined.
  18. fainter & fainter

    Okay, now that the echo in here has become fainter and fainter which facebook page has replaced this one? I found this one but there don't seem to be any people there except Jason. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=houston geocaching society
  19. As far as I know I haven't looked at it
  20. I can't figure out how to encrypt part of a log anymore. Has GC thrown that feature away? If so, and you want to encrypt part of your log you can use my utility which you can find here
  21. fainter & fainter

    I agree completely with everybody about this being the best place. I signed up for Houston Geocaching Society and couldn't see how it could be useful to me. I've not been on Facebook and don't understand how it works but that group seems like just a social group. I come here largely to get help. By the way, Kenny, your post from here on the compass has third place billing when I google 64s 3-axis compass Well, if the good guys aren't there (present company excepted) I think I'll resign from the group if I can ever figure out how. I too will be terribly disappointed if this forum group goes away. I may join https://www.facebook.com/groups/183002578433642/ and see if there's anything of interest to me there but I don't ask for help with puzzles or finding caches so the "puzzlehelp" group is of no interest at all to me.
  22. fainter & fainter

    Then there's a thing called a Houston Geocachers Group, but I saw few people I knew. I saw Kenny (KeyResults), Joni (no muggle), Jenifer (Green Eyes). Maybe I missed them but I didn't see Cachestacker, Kirbydox, Houston Control or Baytown Bert etc., etc.
  23. Have you recently checked to see if that works? That's the feature I was asking if GC threw away.
  24. Garmin 64S on sale $199

    To whom it may concern: Kenny solved my direction pointer swinging around. Turning the compass off fixed it. I guess I should have taken the hint from HC's point about it swinging widely when the compass was uncalibrated, but I mistakenly thought when the compass screen was hidden the compass was turned off, but it isn't.
  25. How much climbing

    How much climbing is accepted before a cache has a Terrain rating greater than 1.5? https://coord.info/GC6WZAM Read hint.
