One of the features that I thought was great when I updated our Garmin Oregons a while ago was the ability to add coordinates for "next stage" on multis.

So before, you'd have to set a waypoint for subsequent stages and then navigate to those stages. Not a big deal, but it meant that you were no longer navigating to the cache itself, so it made it difficult to retrieve cache details. By setting a next stage, you were still navigating to the cache itself so the description, logs, etc. were still accessible.

However, it seems that once you stop navigating to the cache, the next stage waypoints are gone. Normally with a multi you go from point a to point b until you get to the final. But if you decide to navigate to a different cache or waypoint before going to the next stage of the multi, the next stage disappears! The first time I thought it was a fluke, the second time it happened I assume it's a "feature." Anyone else have this problem?

Ive had it happen to me also, good thing I was in a large cemetery with multiple caches and not over a mile away like you were.

Ill have to look on the Oregon wiki to see if it has ever been mentioned there

Yes. This is on my list of grumbles about the Oregon, but thought perhaps something on my part was being done wrong. Seems that once the cache is completed, or another selected, the WPs are gone. But while navigating to the 'next stages', pretty sure the cache details will still be pulled up. Best we've found with keeping info on subsequent stages is to just record the coords in the cache's notes......or on a piece of paper. Smile

Would like to see the Oregon do what the App on our phone does: it allows the addition of new WPs, and incorporates them into the associated cache info, allowing you to switch and navigate among the various WPs, without then ever becoming disassociated with that cache. And when you're done, all the WPs are stored, so you can come back and ref or use them again, as needed.

Yes, this is exactly what happened. Got the bonus coordinates halfway through the OZ series, put in "next stage," got to the end...where did they go? Fortunately sent some emails over dinner and got a lifeline. Surprised

Looks like the lesson is to add an actual waypoint, desipite the hassle of having to go and remove the orphan after the cache is found.

Did you look under recent finds? Had the same issue when down in the cities. Had the coords to a Puzzle final and entered then as a next stage. The only way I could get the info was going to recent finds. That was using my 62st.

It's not in recent finds b/c it wasn't logged as a find...or at least it's not there.

Any waypoint entered or looked at is logged under recent find. At least on my units.

I tried this again, and at least on my Oregon, the next stage stays there while you are navigating to geocaches. But once you cancel navigation it is gone forever.
