I have 2 questions about the new Garmin 62 st, does it accept wherigo downloads and how many gpx files can it handle?

I have an app for my Android called "where you go" that supports WhereIGo caches but I haven't had a chance to install a cartridge and give it a shot.

Where you go requires you to download the cartridge on to a computer, then move it to your phone for it to work. Just a heads up!

Thanks Rusty. I would assume you just put it in the whereyougo directory but if not i'm sure there is plenty of info out there. Have you used it?

I have used the Whereyougo app several times and it seems to work alright. As with any wherigo devices, save early and often, it will save you a lot of grief. The files are put into the whereyougo directory on the SD card. I installed ASTRO, which in combination with mail (NOT Gmail), allowed me to email the caches to the android. I normally just load them up on the android by USB though.

I did the whereigo in wauseon on my HTC evo 4g my advice would be make sure your phones gps is decent and have your battery charged completely.
