There's been some good discussion on options for this in the original thread (https://plus.google.com/110788672072634217518/posts/NsPnJWqv1un). The include options like moving the maps to the internal memory and swapping out microSD cards, using a smartphone/tablet with USB OTG to move files on/off the unit, and an external device to edit the cards in the field. Do you have any good ideas how to address SuperTed's problems?
We received a call to our voicemail line from Listener "SuperTed" and would like your answers! He's using a Garmin Oregon 300 and wants carry around multiple sets of GPXes on a memory stick to swap out the paperless caches loaded on the unit to get other caches on the device. Another user asked about possibly loading more GPX files onto the SD card then selecting which one get loaded, but that wouldn't work for SuperTed as he has the UK maps loaded onto that card and doesn't want to mess with those maps. What are your thoughts?

WARNING: There's a glitch in the feeds for all Cache-A-Maniacs features which are showing all features across all feeds. We've contacted the hosting provider about the issue and expect to receive a reply shortly. We're sorry for any troubles this has caused.
