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.

Darryl started the conversion with his experience with location issues on iOS 10.1 fixed by resetting the Network Settings. Team MavEtJu shared that his Lighthouse virtual caches on Geocaching.au has been completed (map) using Wikipedia and Lighthouses.org.au as references.

He then wrote about moving his wife from Geocaching® to Cachly. Finally he wanted some information about walkie-talkies. Darryl found the following options for a pair at less than $100US through Amazon;

Chris found the "FCC eliminates GMRS regulatory fee" blog post about the GMRS licenses. We also heard from Rock Chalk at Geocaching.com about the beta of the "My Lists" feature available to Premium Members. Last on the rundown was the Engadget article "Six next-gen battery technologies."
