reverse geocache

RangerBob takes the geocache concept to another level with this simple, yet amazing design. The GeoCache was designed to be 're-usable' and easily interfaces with Google Earth. RangerBob highlights some interesting design considerations which gives the project it's polished edge

Excellent article RangerBob! Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Geo-caching sounds like a lot of fun. Some of my friends do it but I've never tried it.

Wow, you've brought together a lot of different software features and hardware to make this work. I'm sure people will be able to get something useful from your article even if it's for a different application. I know I'll be looking over how you used the SD card for an upcoming project of mine! The USB power controller chip looks interesting too.

Good show!

Great article...thank you! I really like how you used acrylic to create a clean look and design a custom locking mechanism. I am working on a basic model and hope to incorporate some of your ideas in my next build.
