First, you have to select the Database which you will transfer to your eX.
Then you go on Database -> Grab Images. This will download the images onto your Computer.
Then you can transfer the Caches including the Pictures via GPS -> Send Waypoints to your eX.

You can export straight to the X10 from GSAK.
Connect your GPSr to the computer.
On GSAK click 'GPS' then 'set up', set up for your GPSr.
After that it will 'send waypoints' to your GPSr.
No macro needed, it's built into GSAK.

I filter out 'found' caches and then load the caches in the area I'm going to.
Sometimes I just load every cache in Massachusetts from GSAK to my 710.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Click on GPS on the top bar of GSAK. It now has a custom option to export to the X10 series

From there, use Send Waypoints to sent to the GPS

If you don't see Magellan's new units as an option, you need an upgrade to GSAK.

Yes I know, but the question is,
can you put the caches, like Miniwips 6000, directly from GSAK onto the x10s, and how, or do you have to export to a gpx file which you can copy onto the x10s?

Is there a new Macro to export caches to the X10s ?
Or is it done by exporting to normal gpx format ?

Appreciate the info, going to a meeting in the first of the month to help new cachers use the various programs (Easy GPS, Spinner, Vantage Point, ect) and was hoping that GSAK would be updated before then 😀
