GeoGearHeadsPeanuts or Pretzels (of the Peanuts or Pretzels blog) talk about their geocaching adventures for the one-hundred seventeenth edition of the GeoGearHeads. billy robson asked about tools to translate cache pages. Some of the options the panel found were "Google Translate" (and their Android and iOS apps) "Bing," "SysTran" (and their iOS App), "iTranslate" (for Android and iOS, plus their "iTranslate Voice 2" for iOS), "SayHi Translate," "Word Lens." After that our guests talked about their early geocaching experiences using free WiFi to load up information on their iPhone during their visit to Edinburgh. They also talked about geocaching and navigating using their Oregon 650t on the Yucatan Peninsula. They also talked about their favorite Geocaching adventure in Angkor Wat and their short visit to Seattle during a layover.

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.

GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundred fifteenth edition of the GeoGearHeads debaere and StevensAdInfinitum join DarrylW4 to discuss many subjects. We returned to the conversation about "GGH 109: GPSR Loads I" via an email from Wet_Coaster. We also heard from CP590 about the "Soup, Bread and Caching Love Stories the 6th Year" (GC4X6XE) and the permanent "Share the Love: Laboratory" (GC4Z47R) placed as a result. 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!

GeoGearHeadsThe authors of "101 Devil Caches" joins us for the one-hundred thirteenth edition of the GeoGearHeads to share some creative cache containers. The authors of the book and Mad Cacher Blog talked about the book almost a year ago on Episode 296 of the Geocaching Podcast.
We also heard from a couple people on past episodes. TAZ427 emailed about his experience with carrying a knife through airport security (which we'd talked about on GGH112). We appreciated the voicemail from JR and Juju thanking debaere for the article and information he shared on GGH109.

Congratulations to CodeJunkie for submitting the winning answer for this week's question. Thanks to Cache At Night for their donation of this week's gift! Thanks to TAZ427 for the answer we read.
