I was wondering if some could bring me up to speed on caching technology I have had a long absence from caching and was thinking about taking it up again. Since the last time I ran a PQ I was using GSAK but have changed over to sing a Mac. My question is what programs do Mac users prefer when running PQ.

Arnie, nice to hear from you. I am a Mac user and I have Garmin 62st and 64st and no third party software is needed. With my old Garmin 60 I used MacCaching which is like gsask only not as powerful. So, it depends on the unit you will be using. The Garmin gps units are so much more useful in all the info they hold. Let me know if I can help in anyway. How about skater girl? what she doing? how time goes by

I am posting mostly here because I want to be sure and follow this thread. I am a long-time Mac user, and currently I use my iMac, a cellular-enabled iPad, and an iPhone (with official Geocaching app installed) to do all my cache hunting. I would very much like to learn more about what others on the Mac platform are using.

I run GSAK on my Mac, running Windoze 7 under Parallels.

I use iCaching on my Macbook and it works well for me. I am able to load the caches on both of my Garmins (GPSMAP 60 CSx and etrex Venture HC).
