Description

A class for all those who wish to learn a few advanced features of GSAK. This class is perfect for the beginner who has only used GSAK for basic features, those who have taken the Just the Basics class, or those who just want to hone a few advanced skills. Although the class is an advanced class, you will not be intimidated.

Become a much more efficient cacher. We have assembled a tremendous amount of how-to information into one simple, easy-to-follow, basic course on how to use GSAK. Upon completion, you will have a better understanding of the Geocaching.com API, how to log your finds with GSAK, how to protect your data in case of a disaster or data loss and how to correctly use corrected coordinates (for those puzzles you have solved) in GSAK . Once you master these topics, you will know enough to be dangerous!

There will be a step-by-step syllabus issued to each participant. We will be using the same database of 10 caches around the country that was used in the 101 and 201 classes. If you did not attend either of those classes, please let either C3GPS or Major134 know and we can send you the gpx file.

Needed for Class:

A PC, preferably a laptop and no more than two people per PC.
Power strip, just in case
GPS
Cable to connect your GPS to computer.
Flash drive
The most recent GSAK software, paid or free. Newest version as of publication is 8.7.1.22 

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST BE ON AT LEAST 8.7.1.22 FOR THIS CLASS. THERE ARE SOME ITEMS THAT GROUNDSPEAK HAS CHANGED AND THE MOST RECENT VERSIONS OF GSAK TAKE THOSE INTO ACCOUNT. FAILING TO HAVE AT LEAST THIS VERSION MAY RESULT IN UNINTENDED RESULTS.

It is recommended you have a Geocaching.com premium membership. (This is not my requirement, GSAK is very limited with the geocaching.com basic membership).

IMPORTANT: The room at the library holds 50 people. 2 of those will be C3GPS and Major134 so there are only 48 spots available. Please post a will attend note ONLY if you actually plan on attending. If it gets closer to the date and you know you will not be able to attend, please remove your will attend note so that others may take your spot, if we are near the maximum number.
