Geocaching

I have not used this program much but just saw that I am suppose to be able to use it for Geocaching. I read the instructions. Went to Geocaching.com and had it send me all the caches in my area I loaded them on my Samsung Galaxy Tab and opened them. The caches installed in every other map program on my tab except BackCountry Navigator. It was not even one of my choices.

Is there some simple thing I can do to get the GPX files into BackCOuntry?

By the way, doesn’t anybody moderate these forums? What is with the wedding dress posts??

I am sorry but posted this originally on the Windows Forums

Downloading maps

I am finding this program very frustrating to use. I have only had it a day or so so maybe it is me but when I click on “Find a place” and type in a location it says it is centering on it and then never shows any map at all. I leave it for hours. It has worked at first but I can not see what the heck I could be doing wrong.

I have a great web connection and my email and everything else works fine on my Samsung Galaxy Tab but it will not center anywhere new.

When I first set it up it centered on my location, Roscommon Michigan and looked like it was fine. I downloaded a few maps of areas I like to hike and took it out for a test run. Seemed to work.

I then told it to Find a place-Keego Harbor Michigan-and it sets there with a blank map, just a hashwork of lines. I have tried it different areas with the same result.

I have a new 32 meg memory card in it and everything seems to be working fine with it. I have tried it with GPS off and on.
