  1. would the favs the CO 'award' to good loggers be from the same pool of earnt Favs? or would the owner have an unlimited supply to give out? OR....the owner could gain one fav (to give away to a great log) for every 10 logs logged!
  2. Here here. what a great idea, simple and effective, like the "My finds" one run
  3. Am investigating both the GNS 5870 and the Dual XGP150 for the iPhone. not because i think the accuracy is off (i can live with a 5m radius) but it chews so much battery running the GC app Both are bluetooth units with advertised 10 and 8 hrs run times respectively. as they are claiming to be better/ more accurate GPSRs than the iphones, and 'made for apple' i assume (?) that the phone will turn off its internal power hungry component, and the external unit can work with the app. The Bad Elf, and the Emprum Ultimate are connected to the recharge plug. the two problems i see with this configuration is: It uses the phones battery (battery drain is the only reason i am looking at an external unit so something that uses more is not helpful) It is susceptible to damage as it hangs out the bottom of the phone or worse yet damaging the phones connection port As i write this (Nov) am leaning towards the Dual even though it has the slightly shorter battery life (reported between 7.5-8.5 hrs)because it has a strap so i can attach it to a backpack, jacket, or wrist/watch like AND a switch so i can use it with my laptop or any NON-Apple device if i need to retailing in Australia for $144, online for about $85 the GNS has aprox $100 ticket Would love someones field trial experience or ongoing contribution
  4. Relative newcomer from Downunder, happy to lurk, glean, and learn. until that is i have something to offer! Keep the face of the posts friendly and family. While havnt been privy to the "rants" that are spoken of (and sorry no i havnt gone back the 10years and 40 pages of posts to catch up) it is easy to misread intention and intonation in text. Have only just placed our 2nd cache, waiting on Ump to OK it, and only logged 60 or so finds in the words of 86,... And loving it Baluke
