GeoSnippits - GeoBasics - Calibrating GPSr Units for Geocaching

I was amazed recently when I discovered how many geocachers who are just starting out (usually with less than 100 finds) can get frustrated geocaching. The biggest complaint is not having enough information from the start and not knowing what to do exactly or even where to start looking.

Well we are going to have to do something about that.

So I am creating a mini series of GeoSnippits videos that I am calling Geo-Basics.These will be geared for the absolute geocaching beginner and will cover everything from how to look for a geocache, what to look for and all the other tricks of the trade to help make everyone's geocaching experience as fun as possible.

Today's Geo-Basics describes the rudimentary aspects of a GPSr unit. How do they work or better yet, how can we make them more accurate. You even get to see the HHH do the GPS Two Step which for many is part of the calibration process.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. We hope you find it entertaining and informative.
