March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Re: Its the End of the World as we Know it :!: :!:

This was discussed on wildfowlers facebook. Its quite amusing to think that people with a high DNF rate will be rejoicing now that they have a decent excuse for not finding the caches..

Re: Gsak Macro for Nuvi

I am using GPX_by_Cache_Type. I previously used garmin_nuvi_exportgpx, but wanted one which showed all the proper GC icons for multi's, mystery, webcam etc and waypoints,

I never tried the convertnuvi one.

Re: Gsak Macro for Nuvi

seems strange, but all i did was run the poi loader separately. (The macro automatically starts it after generating the gpx files.)

weirdest problem I ever seen, and because of tgat I thought it was more complex than that.

Gsak Macro for Nuvi

Weve been using the gsak marco for our Garmin Nuivi 250. I changed the memory card to a bigger one and ever since, the macro hasn't been working properly. For those who use it, you will know how to set it up for alerts for caches as you drive along, and then you can acess the full gpx. file descript...

Re: Oregon wont update

I used the webupdater initially, and went on to the MyGarmin dashboard. It was the dashboard that said the software was out of date. I know the issue with map updates, and that every single new or amended road wont be updated. My nuvi has had a european map update available every year since we got i...

Oregon wont update

I was driving about this evening and had my Oregon 400t running just so I could see the map accuracy. I noticed that the maps seem very out of date in comparison to the maps on my Nuvi 250, so I plugged it into garmins website and it said the maps were up to date. This is annoying as the maps show t...

Re: Owned cache stats messed up.

Thanks for that, will need to run an update. I found the AdLog macro, which fixed the missing logs, but now my found stats seem to list them in the wrong order.

Ill see what the update does.

google earth circle

Im trying to find out how to generate a circle on google earth which will show an 80km radius from my home co-ordinates.
Any help will be apreciated and step by step guidance.

This is so I can see the areas I have set up Notifications for new cache publications.

Thanks.

Re: another donegal newbie

Hi Faulknersam. Welcome to the crazy life of geocaching. I hope you are enjoying it. The map and list of caches will show all new caches in your area. If you have a gps and can pinpoint your co-ordinates, you can type them into a search to find your nearest caches. If you pay for premium membership ...

Re: Extract fom Daily Telegraph

Interesting, a news report last month and now a paper article. looks like we may be getting a bit more company during the search.

I laughed at the bit that said "muggers, who specialises in cache interference"

That might turn a few people off if they think they are going to get mugged.

Michael Fish cache heat generator map

Came across this on someones profile. You can generate a "heat" map displaying the cache density of your finds. In addition you can have Michael Fish point at the map, unfortunately, though, he sticks his arm over Northern Ireland and you cant see it. Ive added it to my stats on our profile. http://...
