I was wondering if others are having a problem with getting on geocaching.com? I am not able to get on tonight. Thanks, PolarOne

Its back up. I do see a change in the "account" area. You now can register what GPSr you use. I hope that its not for marketing. However it would be really cool to see who rules, Garmin or Magellan.

They don't have my Garmin Forerunner 305 in the list of possible GPS, maybe they are trying to tell me something. Wink

I did submit it via the email link that they have so we'll see what they think about using a 'watch' to geocache.

Darn right you know it is for marketing. And no you know darn well that they will not share the data with us.

They've been up and down all morning, both the geocaching website and the forums. My guess is that they're rebooting servers when things get slow, but then the server-side cache gets dumped, too.

But its worth it, 'cause we can now show the world what GPS we use Laughing

Hey, I used a Garmin Foretrex 101 for my first 500 finds and it worked just fine! Very Happy

I see the Forerunner 305 in the list now.
