Arrow Getting waypoints to Spot quickly?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm starting to use Pearl + Holux + Spot to do some geocaching, and I'm wondering if anybody (either as a premium member of or no) has found a simpler way of getting cache data to the BB then

--typing in every single x/y (after converting them)
--adding the title and then downloading the cache description

I want to do lots of caches and want to download them quickly:but don't know if the http: linking to gpx/loc will suddenly work if I join as a premium member (I don't think so) and have no other solutions. Help warranted!

As I recall you need to save the .loc file to a website and then DL it from there. So if becoming a premium member gives you the linking rights then you should be able to do it. I think you have to paste the URL to Spot though. Supposedly there newest version is better than the one I reviewed but I don't know if its out yet.
