Which newer GPS units support the where i go format

Recommended Posts

I have been trying the where I go on my smart phone iPhone 6s and sometimes it is difficult to play when you lose the signal.  Do any of the newer gps units support where I go.  Thanks in advance.

All GPS units will support you wherever you go, as long as they can access satellites. You preload. I often travel where there is no phone coverage and bulk load the caches. Or do you mean do they display the map like a phone with the caches, without preloading?

They were asking about Groundspeak Wherigo functionality.

None of the current units support Wherigo.  However, I seem to recall one of the Garmin GPS receiver offerings has an Android operating system.  If so, it might be possible to load WhereYouGo on it.  However, that might prove challenging as I've heard WhereYouGo is not listed in Google Play anymore.

It's still there. I just downloaded it to my phone last week. It's not the most intuitive app to use since it can't access the site and download cartridges directly. The app Geooh has a built-in Wherigo player, but I haven't tried it out yet. I still have my Oregon 450 for Wherigo caches.

Okay, now I understand, but there was nothing in their question indicating they meant Wherigo.

 

Just to mess with you a bit, the OP did say, "where I go"...

Good to know.  I'd love to know what people think of Geooh's player app.  I have an iPhone, so can't try it out for myself.

Having never done a Wherigo cache, (my Garmin can't do them), that meant nothing to me.

The unit you're thinking of is the Monterra.  It would require wifi to download it and then wifi to download the cartridges as well.  Assuming all things go well, you'd be able to use the Monterra to play Wherigos.
