Are any of you Charter Members using the new Pocket Query feature from Geocaching.com?

I'm having trouble getting my searches to show up on the ebook format in my PDA.

My downloaded search shows up on my PDA's library index, but when I click on it, it states "Error...File not found"

I've tried several things to get the search to show up on my PDA but nothing works.

When I select the highlighted download it brings up the hotsync download screen. After hotsync the file acts like it transfered, but never actually appears on the PDA.

If anyone else is using this new feature let me know. I would like to know if it working for anyone else.

As I type this, I'm charging up the battery in my Sony Clie that I just bought specifically for this purpose. I hope this does what I'm expecting. I had to choose between gambling $70 for a Palm M105 or go the more expensive but seemingly better value of the Sony. I hope you get your answer. These should come in useful for the picnic perhaps?

Just a note not related to this topic, we do hope to have a PDA format available for the picnic that we can beam to each other. It would be a listing of the caches and clues that you can decode on your Palm device.

I successfully downloaded the file to my PDA. I am using Mobipocket Reader, and it opened it no problem.

Actually, Because I sync to a different folder than my default Mobipocket folder, I do have to do a quick browse to open the file, which I probably wouldn't have to do if I just moved the file to the correct folder.

This is what I'm doing (which doesnt work)

1. download the prc file and easygps file and save it to my briefcase.

2. unzip the file from my briefcase.

3. open the saved folder and which contains the prc and easy gps.

4. double click on the prc file.

5. this opens up the hotsync download screen and shows the prc file on the list to be hotsynced.

6. perform a hotsync.

7. Open up the mobilpocket reader on the PDA and select my search result from the library index.

Other Mobipocket news periodicals are being downloaded, but the geocache search results are not there.

8. PDA states "file not found"

hmm

I just turned mine on and walked myself through step by step to see how I did it.

Initially, it didn't show up on my list of books when I first synced it, prolly cause I synced it to a different folder. Near the top of my library screen is a browse option. I used that to browse to the actual .prc file, and opened it that way.

I noticed that it does now show up on my library screen, so I won't have to do it again that way.

If this is what you are doing, I don't know what to tell you, other than maybe your file is bad(?)

The only problem I've run into with the whole new system is the fact that geocaching.com doesn't always send the files to me as schedualled. I was thrilled yesterday when one finnally got e-mailed to me Image

I'm fortunate that it worked the first time. What I do is =save as= into a folder and then use Palm Desktop to add it to the Hotsync list. I don't put in any directory in the PDA and the file goes right into the ebooks section of Mobipocket. It'll do what I want but I like the layout of the Geoclipping better.
