Geocaching is a popular outdoor adventure game. Traditionally, finding a geocache involved an online search for a cache (typically on geocaching.com) and then printing out attributes to take with you into the field to help you find and document the cache. As GPS-equipped devices become more connected and more mobile (think smartphones such as the iPhone and BlackBerry) downloading, taking along, and viewing cache attribute information digitally is becoming easier and more popular. Handheld GPS devices are also becoming more connected, and adding more ways to conveniently view geocache attribute data in the field.
Paperless geocaching features may include:
- Ability to log and upload geocache finds from the field.
- Save listings, maps, and photos.
- Lookup of trackable item details, such as geocoins.
- Access logs for caches.
