ninety-fifth edition of the GeoGearHeads
The Bad Cop and
DarrylW4 tackle a range of topics (mostly from the audience).
The new GeoGearHeads
YouTube channel was the topic before we started on the meat of the
show. Please head over to subscribe and check out all the old
shows. First was feedback from
scrapcat about her
blog post from last week's show with our tip for getting the
degree symbol (°) on iOS. Next was a follow-up by
f1drivr about his question from GGH090. We
pointed him to the "Report a Map
Error" link from Garmin.
wanzong emailed about a couple topics – information on
filtering logs on Geocaching.com and questions about WallaBee
[Team D]Benignsource connected through
Google+ about a question he saw on
CacheFace. We went through the hardware (WAHOO KEY,
Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, PROTKT
BIKE MOUNT & CASE FOR IPHONE 5/5S), software (GeoBeacon),
and a live demo of using a
Garmin Chirp with an iOS device.
Sh@rpey asked via Google+
about shows for caching with an Android smartphone or iPhone. Check
Beta.13: Smartphone Caching I," "GGH Beta.17:
Android Apps I," "GGH 056: NeonGeo,"
and "GGH 070:
Geosphere 3 Tips & Tricks" as some good starting points,
but there were several other shows with good information for
smartphone caching. The Upgrades
to Intercaching (featured on GGH075) were
mentioned before moving on. Rich Owings's excellent
satellite days and bad satellite days" article was the subject
of conversation for several minutes and a good, quick read for
geolocation users. Next was a brief conversation about the new
Garmin tactix GPS watch. Finally they suggested those
interested in smartwatches check the "Fragments
of time: the wild, messy state of smartwatches" article from
The live video session from this Google+ Hangout On Air can be found on YouTube.
