Apisphere Geomate Jr. – The simplest way to get right to the fun
First, for the people who don’t know (and I was among you only minutes ago) Geocaching is a relatively new, worldwide, high tech game of hide and seek. Using a handheld global positioning device, players attempt to locate hidden treasures almost anywhere. Sounds like fun huh?
Enter Apisphere Geomate Jr. the quickest, easiest, and dare I say least expensive way to enter the world of geocaching.
Apisphere Geomate Jr. has only one button, that’s right, one. That being said, even I can do this. Turn it on and it communicates with satellites that give you directions, in the form of distance, height and direction, to the closest geocache. It also lets you know the terrain, difficulty level AND the size of the geocache you are searching for. It has ability to save your start point, so you can easily find your way back to where you started.
The neatest thing about the Geomate Jr is that it comes pre-loaded with about 250,000 geocache locations all over the United States and with the optional update cable you can download any locations that have been added since you bought yours.
If it’s any indication, my daughter watched me write this, and suggested we immediately go plunk down our $69.99, since anyone who reads this is going to want one, has anyone seen my purse?
