GeoGearHeadsdebaere returns with talk with The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 for the one-hundred nineteenth edition of the GeoGearHeads to tackle several subjects. Golfer89 emailed about contacting Geocachers through Geocaching.com with accounts that haven't been validated. DuneBuddy asked about caching without a data connection. debaere shared his experience with the Garmin Monterra which he reviewed on his blog. He also shared a fact about GPS from Gizmodo. They then talked about CNet's "Meet the next-gen USB cable that could sweep away all others" article and the promise of the new cable format. Wet_Coaster also asked a couple questions; one about printed maps and the other about supplies carried when caching. They wrapped about with a little tidbit about "GEOCACHE" being added to Scrabble.

GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundred sixteenth edition of the GeoGearHeads we revisit the subject of batteries (see Beta.01 and Beta.02 for the first two). The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 started with some information about Heavy Duty, Alkaline, Lithium, NiCd, NiMH, and LSD NiMH AA and AAA batteries. Then they looked at a question from Wet_Coaster about NiMH performance in cold weather. There were a couple of resources from Panasonic and a PDF by Boguslaw Pierozynski with some helpful information. LANMonkey also asked about the life and charging of NiHM batteries. They then tackled the rechargeable batteries for mobile devices – LiOn, LiPo, and Lead-Acid. Some helpful tips were shared from Lifehacker and more information is available from Battery University. They wrapped the show up talking a little about fuel cells and the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor.

Congratulations to LANMonkey for submitting the winning answer for this week's question. Thanks to Cache At Night for their donation of this week's gift!

The last bit of email came from Martin asking about the Garmin GLO and GNS 2000. The Bad Cop also left us an article about rescuing a wet phone. He would have been excited to discus Google's conference on the Aura platform this April. Another important topic came to us from the Verge – "California court says drivers can read maps on their phones." The panel also talked about some of the new products released around this year's Mobile World Congress:

Perhaps the most interesting and most geeky story came from The Atlantic – "Where Time Comes From" – it's recommended viewing and reading for all tech geeks!

GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundred eighth edition of the GeoGearHeads John Robb returns to talk about lasers and geocaching. On his fourth appearance, John Robb (of Cache At Night who caches under teamvoyagr) shares some of the issues to consider when attempting a laser-based geocache, advantages, disadvantages, and some examples. John's first laser cache was "After Dark Duet" (GC24MXZ) which lead him and his partner to create "BFL Boot Camp V - Alien MacGyver" (GC2EYDW). So other example laser caches are "BFL VI - ...in a galaxy far, far away" (GC35FHF) and "BFL 7: Sin - Blinded By The Light" (GC40V3B). He also provided the "Angular Size Calculator" page for helping calculate errors. A couple of caches created with their Laser Loci are "Knights Templar" (GC4Q90W) and "GAG20 - Loki (NIGHT CACHE)" (GC4NWN9). Thanks to StevensAdInfinitum and Two_Drews for their audio feedback used in this episode.

GeoGearHeadsFor the ninety-eighth edition of the GeoGearHeads The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 discuss geocaching and space. This discussion was prompted by the "Geocaching in Space" events and hype from Groundspeak marking the return of Geocaching to space (Rick Mastracchio carried "International Space Station Travel Bug II by the 5th Grade Class of Chase Elementary School-Waterbury, CT" to the International Space Station). The Bad Cop attended the "Geocaching in Space - A Geocaching HQ Event!" event at the Pacific Science Center, hosted by Geocaching HQ. The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talked about ways for civilians to get into space through Virgin Galactic, Novaspace, XCOR Aerospace, Armadillo Aerospace, and World View Enterprises. None of those options will get you to the "International Space Station" (GC1BE91) cache, and only seven civilians have flown to the ISS. There are geocaches and traveler here on Earth that have been to space. On GGH Beta.27: Orbiting Cache I we spoke with e6c about his caches launched into space – "PINELAND: Sputnik 2010: A Geocache Odyssey" (GC2JPJJ) and "PINELAND: LEIF MMXII: Geocache From Space!!" (GC3P578) – and some travelers (including our own Cache-A-Maniacs in Space!). Also mentioned was Gogo's partnership with Glympse for in-air location sharing and Gogo Text & Talk.

Thanks to Listener "Giz" for his voicemail on how he promoted the GeoGearHeads.
