Re: [gpsstash] newbie question

Well, the "waypoint" is the lat/lon that is given on the page. The name
given (GC117) is a unique name that you *could* use for that waypoint. You
don't have to use that name. However many GPS units have a limit of 6
characters for a waypoint name. Jeremy has figured out how to give each
cache a unique six character name.

> On the cache pages, there is a line that says "Use Waypoint: GC117" or
someother combination of letters and numbers. From where do these waypoints
come? Is there a great list actually listing the coordinates of each of
these waypoints?
