Help! First time cache hider!

Recommended Posts

I made a first hide just in the past 24 hours with the Trimble Geocache Navigator app and the Blackberry Maps application as my guides...


I noted about 6-7 different sets of coordinates with Blackberry Maps as I stood at GZ and later looked at them in Google Maps (it is near a road). I slowly refined the closest set of coordinates using Google maps, then I confirmed the best set at GZ using the "Enter Manually" feature in the Trimble app.


The cache was published today and so far I have had four logged visitors and no questions of coordinates...

The Guidelines are quite clear:




You as the owner of the cache must visit the site and obtain the coordinates with a GPS.


GPS usage is an essential element of geocaching. Therefore, although it is possible to find a cache without a GPS, the option of using accurate GPS coordinates as an integral part of the cache hunt must be demonstrated for all physical cache submissions.
