Yesterday at the Paris Event there was some discussion about waypoint and cache names being exported. I cannot say if this will work on a Magellan but a Garmin does it just fine.
Above is our settings for sending waypoints straight to GPSr from GSAK.
Above are settings that we use for export to Mapsource.
This shows the type of cache, the size container, the difficulty, and terrain on the waypoint name.
Additionally it shows the hint, if there is one, in the long description box starting with ( The hint ends with ). So a cache showing ( ) has no hint. A cache with (Look in a hole in the tr, and no close ), has been truncated due to length. You might need to resort to the pda on this one. If there is no hint or the hint is short you may see the smartname of the cache, then if room the name of the hider.
XYXY is the GC.com waypoint name with the GC dropped. This can be up to 5 digits.
+ means T/B in in the cache space means no T/B reported
The 1st character after + or space represents the type of cache T= Traditional Y=Mystery M=Multi V=Virtual E=Earthcache and maybe A=APE
The 2nd character after + or space represents the type of container R=Regular S=Small M=Micro U=Unknown
The third character after + or space represents the difficulty: 1=1 a=1.5 2=2 b=2.5 3=3 c=3.5 4=4 d=4.5
The final character represents the terrain: 1=1 a=1.5 2=2 b=2.5 3=3 c=3.5 4=4 d=4.5
In the above example, XYXY+TMA2
GCXYXY reports a T/B. The cache is a traditional micro 1.5 difficulty 2 terrain
On a 60 series Garmin GPSr.
If you do a find> geocache> and select a cache press enter> the description now shows the decoded clue encased in parentheses. Nothing in the parentheses means no clue. If there is an open parentheses but no close the clue is to long for the space in the GPSr and you might need to look at the PDA. If the clue is short you might see the smartname of the cache then the name of the hider. If you want a better explanation you can learn loads about this in GSAK> help> contents> special tags.
