Garmin Chirp for Paperless Geocaching

Posted by at 3:05 pm on October 15, 2010

Garmin on Friday boosted its geocaching efforts with   addition of a beacon called the chrip. Geocaching is a hightech version of hide and seek where participants of all ages explore the outdoors in search of hidden treasure.

The chirp can be detected by most of Garmin’s outdoor GPS units and will automatically unlock hints or other details when close by. Its owner has full control on the unit, you can password-lock the beacon, create coordinates for a multi-cache set or check how many users have visited a given chirp unit.

Slightly bigger than a quarter, it’s just 1.3 inches across and is designed to stay hidden.   It also designed to last a whole  year  on single  battery  and its  shell that should withstand typical weather found outdoors during the year.

The chirp is available now and costs $22.99.
