Re: SoaringEagle mentioned on Podcacher!!
- Right now I have a first generation iPhone so I don't have a GPS built
in. So I still use my GPSr on the side except on urban setting where
I have found that using the satellite picture is more precise than a
GPSr bouncing everywhere. So for instance, my last 2 trips to NY, I
found 8 caches just using the iPhone.
iGeocacher has a compass for the new generation iPhone. Some people
have reported having a lot of success with it. Here is a detailed web
page explaining how it works: http://www.ayefon.com/geo/hsi.cfm
All reports I have heard of people using the iPhone GPS for caching
even in the woods is that it is quite accurate...
The issue is fragility of the iPhone. But I am looking at a rugged
protection box like otterbox for caching in non urban settings.
