  1. I'm running into a couple of issues when exporting an offline list from Cachly v3.0.2 (4) and importing into GSAK and directly onto my GPSr. First off, I get this GSAK warning dialog (see attached image) that says the GPX file is in an old format and does not contain any attributes. Second, I get a ton of errors saying (see attached image): The GPX file exported from Cachly appears to contain attributes, but also contains a bunch of empty <wpt> tags, one for every cache. For example: <wpt lat="48.824467" lon="-123.279915"> <time>2005-04-08T17:00:00-07:00</time> <name>GCNDQ2</name> <desc>Baby Back Ribs by land-air-sea, Traditional Cache (1.5/1.0)</desc> <url>http://coord.info/GCNDQ2</url> <urlname>Baby Back Ribs</urlname> <sym>Geocache</sym> <type>Geocache|Traditional Cache</type> <gsak:wptExtension xmlns:gsak="http://www.gsak.net/xmlv1/5"> <gsak:Code>GCNDQ2</gsak:Code> <gsak:IsPremium>false</gsak:IsPremium> <gsak:FavPoints>2</gsak:FavPoints> <gsak:UserFlag>false</gsak:UserFlag> </gsak:wptExtension> <groundspeak:cache xmlns:groundspeak="http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0" id="227699" available="True" archived="False"> <groundspeak:name>Baby Back Ribs</groundspeak:name> <groundspeak:placed_by>land-air-sea</groundspeak:placed_by> <groundspeak:owner id="52101">land-air-sea</groundspeak:owner> <groundspeak:type>Traditional Cache</groundspeak:type> <groundspeak:container>Small</groundspeak:container> <groundspeak:attributes> <groundspeak:attribute id="1" inc="1">Dogs</groundspeak:attribute> <groundspeak:attribute id="7" inc="1">Takes less than an hour</groundspeak:attribute> <groundspeak:attribute id="6" inc="1">Recommended for kids</groundspeak:attribute> <groundspeak:attribute id="13" inc="1">Available at all times</groundspeak:attribute> <groundspeak:attribute id="15" inc="1">Available during winter</groundspeak:attribute> <groundspeak:attribute id="32" inc="1">Bicycles</groundspeak:attribute> </groundspeak:attributes> <groundspeak:difficulty>1.5</groundspeak:difficulty> <groundspeak:terrain>1.0</groundspeak:terrain> <groundspeak:country>Canada</groundspeak:country> <groundspeak:state>British Columbia</groundspeak:state> <groundspeak:short_description html="False">Nice log strewn beach to explore at lower tides.</groundspeak:short_description> <groundspeak:long_description html="False">This is a small bay to explore via boat or on foot.

This occasionally makes is difficult to actually select a geocache from the map view on my Oregon 450, as the waypoint is often selected first. After multiple attempts, I can usually get the cache selected. Not a show stopper, but annoying none the less.
