Forced to wait - if you select the list of Geocaches

Post by bonstetten »

Because Multi-Caches are not loaded completly when using "Live geocaching" (see https://www.gpsrchive.com/Discussion/vi ... art=10#top) I download a lot of geocaches using gpx/gpz on my Garmin 6 6( >20'000 Geocaches) to have them ready , because I can't rely on live geocaching :cry: .

When I'm scrolling through the "pages" and I arrive accidentally on the Geocaching-Page->Cache-List, the GPS "stopps" and blocks me until the list is loaded. This takes multiple seconds and not just the first time.

This is annoying. Does somebody else can confirm that`

Yes, this has been the case since GGZ files were created for the Oregon 6x0. Simply stated, the more geocaches you have loaded on your device, the longer it takes to parse data for the Geocache List each time that page is opened.

I avoid this by using the Map page to select and begin navigation to desired geocaches...
