Garmin Fenix 3 and geocaching

As multi-functional as the Fenix 3 is, there is one outdoor activity it doesn’t really cater for – geocaching. Let me explain why I feel let down.

Saved locations

In spite of its useful navigation features, I am unable to input and store a series of cache locations prior to setting out on the geocaching path. I can only navigate to saved locations of places I have already been to or to one set of coordinates I enter while on the trail.

If anyone knows how I can pre-store locations on a Fenix 3, please drop me a line.

    There is a hidden folder called ‘NEW FILES’ – just drop a GPX file in there and then you can navigate to it under ‘saved locations’
