The End Of The GPSr As We Know It?

I’ve been searching for my next GPS unit for a while now. I don’t need a new one, I’m still completely in love with my Blackberry as my main caching tool, but it felt like time I joined the ‘real’ cachers by having a ‘real’ GPS unit. But my search has not gone well. You …

Wherigo … My Blackberry Follows

Wherigos: Until recently I didn’t have an opinion on them. With none in my area all I had to go on was various bits on the web that suggested it was a dying breed of cache, particularly following the Garmin/Groundspeak falling out. However, it does appear as if there is a fair amount of support …

Apparently The Best GPS For Geocaching Needs These Six Features…

I came across this article on the fairly reliable booshnews.com recently. It does come across a little as an advert for the Garmin GPSmap 478, especially as no other GPSr’s are mentioned…and it’s an article about buying your first GPSr and what to look for. The article suggests six features and it’s hard to disagree …

GeoTools

One of my favourite things about Geocaching are the neat (yes, I used the word neat) tools and gadgets. It seems each cacher has their own method and equipment list, not to mention their own dream list. I’ve been pretty lucky from the start to have close to my dream combo of tools – so …
