I'm running V5.00, and I can't seem to see waypoints anywhere, should I be able to?

Just thinking about using it for geocaching, and without waypoints, it's no use whatsoever.

not sure if you solved your problem yet. By waypoints are we talking about points of interest, ie your cache location, or do you actually mean waypoints (in which case i'm not much help).

maybe i'm using the wrong terminology, but I thought it was waypoints.

Do you think i need to change them to POI's? Just trying to work out how best to get caching points into Garmin really.

If you are a premium member of geocaching you can load the caches into a gpx file. Once you have the gpx file use the garmin custom poi loader to install the poi's on your phone. When you click 'Where to?' on your phone your caches should be under 'Extra'.

There is probably a better way though.
