RE: [Garmin_GPSmap_76C] Re: While Geocaching
- Also if I remember on the 76scx there was a glich of some sort that it wouldn't go past either two or three lines no matter what I tried. But to show the full descriptions there was a workaround that you had to install the caches as a custom poi file and load it with the poi loader from garmin. I may be wrong its been so long since I did all this tweaking with the 76csx.Michael

I have been playing with the % notations and wonder where you found anything about this part of GSAK?? I found that if I use %code for the Waypoint name, I get all the characters used by Geocachine.com. Then I found if I use %hint (%Dif/%Ter) %smart I can see most of the Hint but not all of it??? I did set the Maximum characters to 88 as suggested. I'll go back to that help page you gave me the other day.
