    Hey Haffy, I am sure you can do it in GSAK. Just enter the coordinates of several points into the GSAK arc data area, select a distance, and run the search. Try it for 2 points first to get the hang of it. I use it to find caches along the route I plan to take when traveling fron NY to ME. Using about 6 points and a 10 mile distance it gives good results.

    Why do you need them to do that when you can do it with your palm now. I do it with my Palm all the time.

    Oh, I see a joke there, but let's keep this is a PG site....


    Though I have little desire for caches on a route (I make my routes adjust to the caches!), the advantage would be that if someone takes the same route a lot of times, the GPX file would be updated automatically with just those new caches.

    Here is a link with several different ways to find all caches along a route--I've had good luck with MS Streets and Trips. You can also use it to plan a route and get driving directions to specific caches (like Battleship).

    Yeah Mike I have read all through that thread before and I was hoping fpr something a little more(stupid user) friendly,that's me. And Rick how is that done using the Palm? Remembering I am not very tech savvy now so take it one step at a time. Thanks
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Yes we are going to have to actually sit in from of a computer sometime together and go through these steps. At the events there are always computers there but we never end up showing each other because we are to busy socalizing.
