Paperless Caching with only a GPSr

caching tips
Wednesday 16 July 2008 at 10:28 pm

Many folks think that you need a PDA, an iPod, a laptop, a blackberry, or some fancy new fangled GPSr like the Colorado to go paperless caching. Well, this just isn't true. In fact, for most GPS receivers it is possible to paperless geocache with only the GPSr.

While it is true that not all cache page info can be transfered to the GPSr, a good portion of the info can be stored in the comments. Enough info to find 90% of those urban traditionals.

Even if you are paperless caching with a PDA, iPod, laptop, blackberry, or even paper, we suggest using this method to load your GPSr with the maximum amount of info. At certain caches you will not need to dig out the other device if you have the basic info already stored into your GPSr.
