  • A Groundspeak member writes,“I’ve written a tiny Windows Mobile program to get your coordinates from the GPS receiver and send these to the WAP site,so that the 10 nearest caches are returned. That’s all it does,so if a cache looks interesting you still have to manually transfer the coordinates to your navigation software.”He says the simple program provides basic geocaching information for people who don’t want to invest the time or money in full-blown applications.

  • Purdue just hosted its first geocaching event to celebrate Geographical Information Systems Day,which was Nov. 19. Six caches were hidden outdoors on the Purdue campus for anyone to find. Unlike traditional geocaching,finders could register for prizes.

  • From the review of the $9.99 iPhone utility:“This buddy will remember every clue found and will calculate any derived clue or new waypoint for you. Waypoints can be formula’s or projections. Also the final cache formula will be evaluated the moment all clues are found and entered. As a bonus it will record you parking spot so you’ll be able to return to your car.”

  • A great page about how to use Google Maps and the multitude of plug-ins that work with the service.

  • Two Cape Cod cachers,who go by the names erycka &wichie,have thrown down the gauntlet for the Cape Cod Towns series. There will be 14 published caches in the series when it’s complete,each one depicting something special about a different Cape Cod town. Each component’s cache page on Geocaching.com describes a bit of history and lore of the town. Find all 14 and you’ll have the clues you’ll need for the coordinates of the 15th cache.
