Just recieved my Nuvi 765T. I loaded caches to it the from Gsak. Using the same method that I load caches to my Oregon. The oregon shows the cache names. BUT the Nuvi shows the GC number. Is their a simple way change the Nuvi to show CACHE NAMES?

Thanks Todd300. But that is for loading caches as POI. Thats not what I need to do. My problem is not trying to load them BUT to change from GC number to the cache name in the listing.

Benny,

Open up your Macro list,
Right Click on the one you use for Nuvi
Click EDIT

Scroll Down a few lines to the area where you see this....

####################
#
# This is the settings section for advance users.
#
####################

Change these two lines to this


$waypointnamesmallscreen = "%Name"
$waypointnamewidescreen = "%Name"

Click Save

That should work

Barry you were on the right track. I needed to change the special tags in the GSAK setting to send to GPS. Thanks

Got it done... Smile I just use the send to GPS function. What I needed to change was the special tag to use %name not %code. Thanks to all that were kind enough to help me out.

FYI - Not all Nuvi's can be downloaded to like this. Some actually require the Macro to make the caches custom POI's first and then use the POI loader from Garmin to download. GSAK streamlines all of this inside the macro but I just thought I would mention.

It sounds like the Nuvi model benny is using works more "slick".

It all depends on what the hardware/software on the model supports.

If you download to my Nuvi (255w) without the macro, you don't get any of the cache description or logs, just the coords and a name. I ran into that at the cache bash last year and ended up pulling the file back off the unit, reading it into my own GSAK and running the macro to put the caches on as custom POI's so I had the cache info.

I was originally using this for loading to my nuvi

http://geocaching.totaltechworld.com/

Its a macro from GSAK with it I always had problems with garmin uploader not being able to read the file.

now i use this macro

http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=6918&st=0&#entry90622

Works well with the nuvi, loaded 1800 caches on it last night, now that we have the 550 been playing with larger files.

Cheeto, you are correct. the method that I use does NOT give description or logs. All I get is the cache name and coords. Whice is all that I am looking for. I have paperless on my Oregon.

Ahh I see. I thought maybe the model you were using was different. Seems the same then.
