Has anyone experienced the same problem since the GC.com make over? I have a number of route pocket querys sitting on GC.com. I have used them extensively before with success. The other day, I ran a route PQ for a route I have traveled before. I set out and noticed that no caches were showing up on my Dakota 20 and I positively know that there are caches there. Luckily I had my laptop with me and my good old standby Map60. At the other end of the route, I re-loaded the route PQ into my Dak 20 and also into my Map60. On the way back I had both units turned on. My Map60 showed 499 caches along the route and my Dak 20 didn't show any. I used the same route PQ on my Dak 20 on previous runs along the route and it worked fine. Not any more. Only works on my Map60. Anybody got an idea?

Seems like the typical error that can happen on certain garmin units (CO,OR,DK,62, and 78) Try deleting all gpx files from the /Garmin/gpx/ folder on the device and SD card. Reboot the unit with none on it. Power down and reload your PQ. On next power up it should now show them.

OK, that seems to have done the trick. So much for FTFs Thanks again.

I really wish garmin would fix this issue, it has been aroud since the release of the CO in 2008. The problem comes when the pq is titled the same as a previous one. On boot up it compares the file to the internal database, and if its the same it doesnt bother reloading it. Emptying the gpx folder allows a wipe of the internal database. On the next boot up any gpx file is considered new so the database is restored. I wish garmin would just add a "Force gpx reload" button in the setup menu. The workaround that I use is to only load caches to the sd card. That way if you end up out in the field with no caches displayed, you can just remove the card, reboot, power down and reinsert the card.
