Geocaching with my iPhone

11 12 2008

I went and found two caches using only the iPhone apps. My report is given entirely in these short videos!













Until next week… happy geeky techy iPhony caching!

Very excellent presentation videos on the usage of the iPhone for Geocaching. Thanks for taking the time to show some of who are ‘on the fence’ about getting the iPhone.

First – did you really say “dadgummit?” πŸ˜€

Second, I have these snowflakes for my blog too (I used them last year). They are very cool! πŸ˜‰

Third — Cool series of videos. Interesting to watch, even though I’ll likely never have the iPhone. Cool work!

Yes. I really said “dadgummit.” πŸ˜‰

I liked your videos….but…. I’ve been caching with you. I’ve never seen you use a phone in that manner before. Is it possible to call a lifeline while heading in the direction of the cache?

Nicely done! I have the app on my iPodTouch, but unlike the iPhone, I can really only use it when I’m within range of a free wifi hotspot. Not too many of those out on the trails, dadgummit. Still fun to use, but not as practical as my Garmin 60csx & Treo Smartphone with CacheMate combo. Someday however, when wifi is everywhere…

Very impressive! How’s the battery life in full caching mode?

I haven’t done a real battery test, but it’s like any cel phone – ca. 8 hours

Did you think either application had a better direction needle or did you find it very choppy? I have other GPS apps on my phone and none of them seem to update quick enough.

Both needles were a bit squirrelly, and I prefer my Garmin, but they certainly do in a pinch!

Elin, you are such a geek.

I love it!

Wonderful videos, Elin. My non-geocaching friends got a peek at what it’s all about. I couldn’t stop thinking about what other people thought when they looked at you not only following an iPhone around, but filming yourself doing it!

Take care, and Merry Christmas.

P.S. Isn’t it funny how ‘dadgummit’ didn’t sound odd to me at all? I’ve heard it my whole life! πŸ™‚

Ahhhhhh…you are using snow. I’ll be back after winter. Snow effects annoy me. 😦

Nice video series. Twitter meets youtube, dadgummit!

Great Video Set. What type of camera are you using for your videos.
