Does anyone use this program to database their caches on thier Palm? Is it worth the $8. I now use mobipocket and while it is OK to use and free, it is not the easiest to use and move around in.

How does one get his caches into the program? I notice it says it can import waypoints using gpx. Does cachemate find the pgx files on it's own or do you have to direct it.

Thanks,

cachemate comes with a utility that reads gpx files and converts them to a pdb file you syncronize to your palm pilot. look in the installation directory for it.. I forget what it's called offhand...

I use Plucker on my Palm T3 and have all of the caches in the state loaded up. Plucker works great and you don't have to pay for it. It was not easy to get set-up but updates easily once it is in place. I checked out cachemate at first two but liked the way Plucker organized the caches better.
