When you send Geocaches to your GPS or if you have purchased a GPS like the  eTrex Touch range that come pre-loaded with 250k caches, you can view these Geocaches by going to the main menu of your GPS and then select the Geocaching Treasure Chest Icon.


The Geocaches will be displayed in order of the closest ones to you at the top of the screen.
