GPS lessons and caching around Ferny Grove

Wednesday June 24, 2015

For as long as I have had my Garmin GPS I have had difficulties of sorts, varying from battery problems to not being able to download more than some 50 caches.  The battery problems had been solved a while ago after I bought expensive, but excellent batteries.  I have lost the mini SD card, because the slot wasn't closing properly, but I'm not going to replace it.  And Heather was our savior when it came to solving the most pressing problem!

Patricia, Dianne and I visited Heather and she took care of all our problems.  My system software was updated, new maps installed and last but not least we discovered the problem of downloading caches.  Now I have a few thousand on my GPS.  A far cry from the 50 something I could have before.  The only thing to do is finding and installing a map for Europe for when I go on my trip next month.

I learned a few more things and so did Patricia and Dianne.  Of course we had to bring all of it into practice, so we went out for a day caching around Ferny Grove.

The 'from here' to 'to here' was the real problem. :-)
