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 .

Is there any way to get more than 5 last logs and pictures (some or all) from caches into Garmin? :roll:

You can use the GSAK (http://gsak.net) application with a script and set as many as you want. You need to be careful though, if the GPX files are too big they may crash the unit.

Tried gsak before but didn't get the idea how to use it correctly so after expiry I ran it just few times...

Need to give it another try.

Do, because there are a lot of useful things you can do with it.

Managed to get images - that's first success with GSAK.
Thanks Donnacha!

Not sure how to get more logs?
Shall I download caches by GSAK and export them to Garmin?

I think if you go to the drop down "Geocaching.com access" - the fourth choice down - "Get recent logs" - might help.

Got it! Exported to GPX and now loading to the unit.
Need to test it in the field.

Do you have any recommendations which setting are working for you well?
What other interesting functions do you use?

Any good macros?

If you mean GSAK, then I have nothing to add :oops:. Except ..

This cropped up in conversation a while back, namely a 'GSAK 101' or 'GSAK for Dummies' event. Someone was willing to stand up and show and tell but it went nowhere over where to hold it. What we thought would be needed was a venue for a sufficient number of people, possibly with free wifi, but with an AV projector so that all are not huddled around one 15" laptop screen.

If anyone has any ideas where such an event could be located, with appropriate facilities, there are one or two who may still be willing to impart knowledge.
