Geocaching help....
« on: May 01, 2012, 05:46:11 AM »
My etrex vista hcx is not automatically marking caches found when I reach them.  Is there a setting or something obvious I am missing here?  I am new to both gps devices and caching.  Thanks

Since these forums are mainly for discussing the maps at GPSFileDepot, you will probably get more help here: http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?s=8b6d015e313f309627d39c4d3794e383&showforum=11

The Vista HCx doesn't automatically mark geocaches as found when you reach the posted location. How would it know if you found that micro or not? You navigate to a geocache:
1. Main Menu
2. Find
3. Geocache
4. Select the geocache
5. A special compass window with buttons at the bottom to mark "as found"
6. Once you find the geocach, select the Mark Found button
