Any update on this issue (not downloading waypoints, etc. w/GC Live for pocket queries)?

No new firmware released yet, so nothing new to report.

I did see on the Garmin Support site this info:

I quote them:

"*Additional locations, such as parking waypoints or further stages of a multicache, are not downloaded when using the live geocaching feature and would require downloading the .gpx file directly from the geocaching.com website instead."


This is what I have been doing since I got my 66s.

Hello,
This is Frank from Germany. I had the contact to the German support regarding the GC live download issue of multi stages.
They stated that this is a problem . It looks like that they don‘t really know what a feature and what a bug is. I am on the point o view that we have a bug, because the live download is not constant. I am curious what the support will find as answer for my question. This problem is already there in sw 3.40
Do you have a link to the text which had be quoted ?
Best regards
Frank
