Geo Caching

I know a bunch of you here do it.  I was wondering, can you use a Cell Phone like and Android for it?  I know those phones have GPS and Google Maps built in.  Just wondering if it would be suitable.

Re: Geo Caching

I have gps in my crackberry, I think the refresh rate of the gps sucks too much. You can geocache with a used sub 100 dollar etrex or the like.

Re: Geo Caching

if u want to cache, I'd get an eTrex. I'd get one with a base map though. The sub 100 dollar ones kind of suck, no map.


But yeah, you can use a cell phone, and probably even better then an eTrex (since u can log your finds instantly in the field to geocaching.com, instead of having to go home, log in online and log it in). I'd go

or go home.


Otherwise, you'll be reading this:
