Thank you very much, Shortcut. For some reason I was just getting a new waypoint added right in the middle of the cache icon before. Now I see the description.

Go the Geocaches page and press the options button on the right then select ‘View On Map’this puts the map page in 'Pan Mode'. Now when you tap on a cache on the map page you will be presented with basic cache information and the ability to select the cache.

If you wish to look at another cache, tap the map screen and then tap another cache.

Pan Mode can also be selected by sliding your finger across the map screen.

I'm getting ready to visit a town 20 miles from my current location. I pan the map on my Magellan Explorist 510 over to that down and see some geocache icons. I want to find out what kind of caches they are, maybe read some logs, etc.

I know I can accomplish this by reading the name of the cache on the map, going to the geocaching section, and then searching for the name. That sounds REALLY clunky though.

I'd rather just tap on the icon that I see on my map and be taken directly to the description of that cache or waypoint. Is this possible somehow?
