Michael, I do know you have to go into waypoints on these units and delete the child waypoints manually, which is a pain. So far, his Map60 is hanging in there for now, but it's inevitable. We never have loaded very many into our GPSr. If traveling, we look for caches of interest, add some more beyond those and stick to the plan. Two hundred would be a big amount for us, but when he was caching in S Dakota last month with the big boys, he had trouble because of the PQ size they use. It's not a good idea for him to see just how many are actually out there, LOL.

Holy crap, that's a pain when you upload a pq of 1000 caches...no wonder it's full.

Yup, if Trekkin's driving, I'm sitting there deleting waypoints. I know I've come nowhere near the capacity of it, but don't want to find out the hard way, either. Like I said....200 caches in a trip would be a BIG one for us. Our three day trip we'll be taking sometime soon....115 caches. If we get half of those we'll be thrilled. Everyone rolls a different way and there are certainly advantages to loading them up, too.

Thanks for this discussion. Last night I went to REI and purchased a Garmin Oregon 450. I looked at them months ago, but never acted on purchasing one. I was using a Garmin eTrex Vista and it still works (got me my first 450 caches), but time to move up...
