Hi,

Is there an easy way to download all the geocaches in Manitoba in one operation? I am looking to put them on my Nuvi.

Thanks

You'd need to create 6 PQs to grab all active MB caches, the easiest way is to split them based on hide dates such as this thread describes http://www.mbgeocaching.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1217
Since its 6, it would take 2 days to generate currently.

Thanks, that looks great. I was hoping there was a way of getting around the 500 cache limit but it doesn't look like it.

I use the 6 PQ option as well, then use GSAK (Geo Swiss Army Knife) to filter out caches. Soon, I will have to start creating a 7th PQ as we're fast approaching 3,000 active caches in the province and will have to flow over into a new PQ. If you want to try and get as many as possible in one day, you can use the attributes of the PQ to narrow it down by cache size, cache type, etc.
