iPhone Geocaching App

For those who have been reading my posts on geocaching and thinking it is something they might like to try, I just wanted to make sure you knew that there is a geocaching app available for the iPhone.  If yours is GPS enabled, check here for more info.  You can download from iTunes for $9.99 if your phone is compatible.

I use the Magellan eXplorist GC.  I love it because it downloads not only the coordinates, but the description, hints, and last ten logs from the website.  There is no need to print hard copies of anything.  It holds 10,000 caches so there is no danger of my running out of space.  I found mine at Target for about 80 dollars less than the Amazon listed price but I'm not sure if that's still the price.  It's worth checking.

You can use any GPSr that allows you to add waypoints, but below are links to two that are specifically designed for geocaching.

If you try it, let me know.  If you don't, feel free to continue to travel vicariously with me on my geocaching adventures.  It may be awhile before I get tired of this.  It's almost as addictive as blogging.

I'll have to look into these bits of technology; in the meantime I do enjoy reading about your adventures in geocaching :)

Holy moly, I looked up the iphone. I could buy a car for the same money. 100 euro per month and 500 up-front. They can have their App and do with it as the monkey did with the peanut.

I thought I was the only one who thought iPhones are not worth the price. I have the most basic cell phone I could find.

For one who was on the 'cutting edge' of technology for many years, I find myself lost in the maze of new, better, and more complicated 'STUFF'. Amazes me how much info that can be stored in such a small package.
