Do you use a Nokia N97 for caching


Recommended Posts

Though I don't use one myself, I thought this might be of interest to any N97 users out there:


Some N97 owners find the integrated GPS doesn't perform as well as they'd like, so they've taken it upon themselves to render a proper fix. Using a copper wire attached to the existing antenna, Symbian Freak contributors Bruno and Teo have greatly improved their signal strength and can go about geocaching with fewer dropped signals.

we just got one of these for caching with as an update to our etrex and i love it


do you know if there will be a program comming for the google g1 phone???




there are thrre apps\available for the g1.


1. geodrioid - available from the market-place..

2. geobeagle.

3. cachemate


of the three, i find geodroid the best, cachemate second and geobeagle next to uselees


on top of that there are issues in that the phone is only good for urban / semi-rural caches and getting pocket quieries onto the phone is a real faff as it can only be done when you're connected to a PC, and not in the field.
