Well the wife and I had our 13 year anniversary this past Monday. My mother in law bought me a Garmin 205w. My question is how do I load in geocaches into the unit and is there away to have it show up while driving and stuff. Also are there any tips or tricks to the unit I should know about. Any help would be nice.
Thanks
Scout

I found that the advanced macro found here is more useful.

Once you get the feeling for the process and macro sweetlife posted, if you're interested I've found this macro:

http://sites.google.com/site/jjreds012/download

to be much better. Why is it better? Because it organizes your caches into types within databases on the unit. So if you have multiple databases in GSAK like "near home" and "near work" or whatever, those are categorized and within that it automatically categorizes into types: traditional, multi, etc.

It also offers full support for alerting you when a cache is nearby and you can set how close is "nearby" and how loud the tone is for alerting. For certain models, this is the only way to get the alert to work.

Good luck and enjoy the nuvi Smile
