GeoGearHeadsIt's just ChrisOfTheNorthWest and DarrylW4 for the two hundred seventieth edition of the GeoGearHeads as they talk about several smaller subjects. The first articles was from Geocaching.com about the souvenir to be awarded April 13th. Next we learned from Engadget what happened with the Amazon outage this week. Then there were just two phones from Mobile World Congress 2017 which got people talking – the BlackBerry KEYone review and the Nokia 3310. The most interesting thing at the show (in our opinions) was the Oppo 5X Dual Camera Zoom tech (as covered by BGR). Limax also emailed looking for experiences with Dropbox Paper, hoping to use that as a replacement for Evernote. Then the guys talked about the new Private Groups ( & iOS) in Glympse. Finally, news from Engadget about a new battery technology to wrap up the discussion.

GeoGearHeadsFor the two hundred sixtieth edition of the GeoGearHeads ChrisOfTheNorthWest, DarrylW4, and gslink&slinkymama (of "Geocache Talk") take on a variety of topics. The first item on the agenda was a correction by Sherminator18 to "GGH 252: Virtual Caching Bag I." Sadly the one feature of Cachebot that had made it a recommendation (the push notifications) have been removed and will not be coming back. So that app is off the suggested apps list. Then L&N Railroad continued with more information about the FRS/GMRS bands and licenses in the U.S. JerseyEric had an issue with the Demo Mode on Garmin eTrex line. There wasn't much about it in the user manual or GPS Mode Settings. On an important, but non-Geocaching related point, Wanzong asked about password managers. "1Password" and "LastPass" were the popular ones DarrylW4 initially suggested. The guys also found the How-To Geek "Password Managers Compared: LastPass vs KeePass vs Dashlane vs 1Password" and the "How Secure Is My Password?" site. Back to Geocaching – MO Baggins shared his "DGS: The Dirtbags TB Safehouse" (GC6R759) which he setup in his yard. Gary shared the iMore "Best Touchscreen Gloves for Winter" article. Then last up was the news about that "Galileo declares Initial Services" from GPS World and the "Russian resupply ship destroyed en route to International Space Station" from Engadget. Team MavEtJu reminded us to mention the Geocaching Australia Summer Scavenger Series.

GeoGearHeadsFor the two hundred fifty-fourth edition of the GeoGearHeads ChrisOfTheNorthWest and DarrylW4 had some issue tripping over their words. The show was to have been an update to "GGH 094: Getting Good Coords I" (which is still worth checking out). brilang pointed out that the Geocaching.com article "1.3. How to get accurate coordinates" had been updated and recommends the "GPS Averaging" app for Android users. The discussion about the coordinate system included "World Geodetic System, Latitude, and Longitude before talking about converting between degrees and degrees minutes.

First, Limax found the GMRS page on the FCC site they were looking for during last week's show, and chrispt found a breakdown on GMRS for HAMs. Team MavEtJu also made the correction to the misspoken "Geocaching.com.au" last week.
