- u have to preload them before you leave home. I've loaded all the ones in my area, and then when I am out, I can grab 'em.by Tlb44222/23/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- That is the one thing that bugs me... loading them before hand. As far as I can tell that is how you have to do it. It would be GREAT if you could push a button and it give you all of them around you though.by cdgd200212/30/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- You don't have to preload individual coordinates, but you do have to load this up with caches from your PC before you go out - no "live" data out in the field. How it works is kind of cool - you do queries on Geocaching.com for up to 1000 caches per query (I currently have 5 different queries with about 5000 caches total loaded on this GPS right now), either as a radius around a specific area (address, ZIP code, city, etc), or even "along a route" on a map (such as "within 5 miles on either side of the route from St Louis to Kansas City). You then download all of that information as a single file from the website to your GPS and boom, you are ready to go!by YoderFamily4/24/2012Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- You will want to log onto geocache website and dump the geocache information onto the unit. It will hold thousands. It will take care of showing you the way. If you were out and had coords, this will allow you to follow lat and longs to get there.by mmkks3/16/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It uses AA batteries and it lasts. We have had it since Thanksgiving and have used it about every weekend and I still have a full battery. I would always carry extra though... just in case.by cdgd20021/25/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- we haven't changed my batteries in 6 weeks. I used once a week only but we play with it often!by drpepperhead8/29/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- ON mine, I get probably 8 to 10 hours on a pair of AA duracells. About 16 hours with lithium ion.by An anonymous customer2/3/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- So far, battery life has been good. We used "CHEAP" batteries and they didn't last a whole day. I blame the batteries for that one. "Good" batteries have lasted a couple of days.by tmwed41/11/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- According to Magellan if you use the energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries it lasts up to 7 hours longer than alkaline batteries....lol but I've been turning mine off and on for about 13 hours and it still is showing that the batteries are still around 100% if that helps any.by diamondjwl1312/2/2010Was this answer helpful?
