So, the difference being that if I had a puzzle cache, for example, that had 
additional informational waypoints (go here to find this piece of information 
that you'll need to solve the puzzle), I would want to download both of the 
files, as opposed to a traditional cache (X marks the spot). Date: Thu, 7 Mar

You can put both on there. The straight ".gpx" file is the cache data proper. 
The "wpts.gpx" file includes child waypoints, parking coordinates, etc. If you 
can do without them, just load the basic ".gpx" file. If not, load both.

Also, my PQ generated two files:  .gpx and .wpts.gpx - Do I put both on the 
GPS?  If not, which one?

In my case, it's F:/Garmin/GPX  There is no "GPS"; could it be GPX?  Isn't that 
the .extension for the file?

The way i go about doing this is, plug the usb cable to the gps and computer. 
Then down load the pocket query to the gps directory {drive letter}/garmin/gps

Then unplug and have fun.

Ok, other Garmin Oregon 450 owners:  I now have my new unit and it's ready to 
be set up for Geocaching.  I've done the quick start and visited the Garmin 
website to register it, but now I'm not sure what I'm doing.  When I run a 
query for caches on Geocaching.com, then what do I do?  I'm a bit lost and of 
course the quick start guide is pretty much only helpful for putting in the 
batteries and turning it on.  Help!
