GeoGearHeadsFor the two hundred sixtieth edition of the GeoGearHeads ChrisOfTheNorthWest, DarrylW4, and gslink&slinkymama (of "Geocache Talk") take on a variety of topics. The first item on the agenda was a correction by Sherminator18 to "GGH 252: Virtual Caching Bag I." Sadly the one feature of Cachebot that had made it a recommendation (the push notifications) have been removed and will not be coming back. So that app is off the suggested apps list. Then L&N Railroad continued with more information about the FRS/GMRS bands and licenses in the U.S. JerseyEric had an issue with the Demo Mode on Garmin eTrex line. There wasn't much about it in the user manual or GPS Mode Settings. On an important, but non-Geocaching related point, Wanzong asked about password managers. "1Password" and "LastPass" were the popular ones DarrylW4 initially suggested. The guys also found the How-To Geek "Password Managers Compared: LastPass vs KeePass vs Dashlane vs 1Password" and the "How Secure Is My Password?" site. Back to Geocaching – MO Baggins shared his "DGS: The Dirtbags TB Safehouse" (GC6R759) which he setup in his yard. Gary shared the iMore "Best Touchscreen Gloves for Winter" article. Then last up was the news about that "Galileo declares Initial Services" from GPS World and the "Russian resupply ship destroyed en route to International Space Station" from Engadget. Team MavEtJu reminded us to mention the Geocaching Australia Summer Scavenger Series.
