Rock Chalk joins The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 for the two hundred twenty-ninth edition of the GeoGearHeads. The first story was "SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE; GPS registers most accurate signal yet" followed by "GPS World: SpaceX awarded GPS III satellite launch contract." Next, Starkacher asked about a listing of smartphone geocaching app. We pointed him to GGH203 and Darryl's list of GPX compatible smartphone apps. JerseyEric asked about sleep modes on modern Garmin GPSRs and mounting one to his bicycle. Garmin's own Bike/cart Mount and the RAM Mounts were recommended, plus GGH176 for more about gear on your bike. butrflygirl asked about accessing offline lists in Cachly and Wet_Coaster asked about centering maps on the Geocaching® apps. Team Dastardly sent in audio about issues in his area with someone stealing or vandalizing caches. Finally Dogliest Cache wanted opinions on territories. Before we wrapped up Rock Chalk shared a little about the Celebrate Get Outdoors Month 2016 which will be open to all cachers on June 11th.
