Thank you Colin, your program is working great now, thanks for all your time and effort!

Can you tell me how you can select individual boxes to download onto your GPS? I certainly don't want to try and download all 10,000 onto my Garmin. :)

Hi Colin, I've just tried your new Mod but sadly nothing as yet will work. When I install the Letterbox.exe file I first get this message:- http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z283/MoorDizzy/gpsdatabase6-1.jpg Then the main program screen appears as normal. From then on this is the process of the fil...

Hi Colin, I can't quiet see where you mean about the dialogue info, all I can really show you are the screen shots from start to finish while attaching the DB file extension.

Hi Colin, the walk.sbf was just one of the files I tried to upload but I do understand that your program works only with the stamps.sbf and the places.sbf. I can open the places.sbf without any problems, however our stamps.sbf contains nearly 5000 clues so maybe it's just the size of the database I ...

Yes, it's a shame the way things have gone with saddle Tor, I have a couple of boxes out there but admittedly very well hidden and off the beaten track. We could do with coming up with a new ground for children to start letterboxing at, one that can be maintained but yet not so close to the holiday ...

Hi Suzanne & Steve, I have a basic Garmin Etrex (yellow & black), picked it up off Ebay for £67 new). Basically you type in the GPS reference for a box and when choosing 'Go To' it will give you a compass point that points the way you have to go, how far it is and how long at your current speed it w...
