GSAK = Geocaching Swiss Army Knife and is a program a lot of us upload our pocket queries to and then use it to load our GPS's and PDAs.

I would think that the GPX file would load to your GPS just like any other. But the temporary caches have a GCID of T001, T002, T003, etc. It is possible your GPS is choking on the non real GCID. I don't think GPX is PC or MAC specific.


There will be printed sheets with all 27 caches at the event.
