If you load the PQs through GSAK the pictures will be there.
One last thing, make sure that on your account on geocaching.com in "Your Account Details" > 'Your Preferences' > GPX Version: GPX 1.0.1

I think we figured it out. I use pocket queries for most. If I send directly to my GPS from the Mag. Communicator I got the picture. I'm guessing I can't load the pictures through a pocket query.

The plug-in is Magellan Communicator, go here to download it - LINK .
It goes on your computer, not the GPS.
How are you loading the caches to your GPS?
Do you have the latest update for your GPSr?

I am going to "Pictures" to see them. That's where I'm getting the message and there are no pictures showing. Where do I go to access the program I need to activate the pictures? How do I get it into my GPS?

The pictures will not show on the 'description' of the cache page, but will show on 'Pictures' ;

I can't see the pictures that are tied to the cache descriptions. The the same message about VantagePoint and Plugin. Where and how do I get one of those loaded onto my GPS?

Well, I loaded a picture to the GC.
The only place where I could access it on the GC was in the captured image file.
There's no way to attach it to anything.

Here's what I loaded, it's a png file - 821 KB 650x650 pix;

If I had sized it at 240x240 it would be round. 😉
And this is what it looks like on the GC;

I can add photos from anywhere/any camera and attach them to geocaches or waypoints on my 710 but I never thought to attempt it with my GC.
I lent my GC to a friend to try out over the long week-end so I can't try it for a few days.

Maybe the 310 can do it?

How much memory does a GC have to spare for loading photos?
If the memory and capabilities of the GC are enhanced to load and display photo albums it will no longer be an inexpensive basic unit.

An old Scottish proverb;

".If wishes were horses, beggars would ride
..If turnips were swords, i'd wear one by my side
..If ifs and ands were pots and pans,
..there'd be no need for tinkers' hands"

But listen, Magellan, it would be really good to be able to load photos from other sources and associate them with a cache.

geocaching name: cindy&randy
I (Randy) am the guy, and therefore entitled to hold and control the TV remote and of course the GPSr.

The only pictures you can view on the GC are pictures that are attached to a geocache that is loaded from Geocaching.com.
They are the pictures that are part of the geocache description put in by the cache owner, not gallery pictures that were loaded to a cache log.

Here are some examples;

Here's a link to my Santa's Little Helper cache to see what I mean.

waypoints to my unit.
But when I try to see this images in the uint it return message "use
VantagePoint or Plugin from Geocaching.com to import images "
The same message I recieve if I try to view photos of caches taken
from Geocaching.com
