EasyGPS

Postby Serrabou » Sun Jul 22, 2012 6:22 pm

So with an upcoming vacation in the works I decided to bite the bullet and try to figure out how to load my Etrex with caches from a Pocket Query. That's right, for 3000+ caches I have either punched coords in by hand, or for urban hides used my smartphone. I had tried GSAK previously and kept getting confused trying to do the simplest things. So I got my Google on and discovered a program called EasyGPS.

It installed in a heartbeat amd the interface was straightforward and easy to figure out. It looks like GSAK for dummies, I think of it as Geocaching Butter Knife. Anyway in a few clicks I had more caches loaded than I will ever have time to find.

Thought I'd mention it here for anyone that is in the same boat that I just stepped out of.

But can you use it to pry open the back of a GPS unit? :roll:
