For my B-day/Mother's Day :queen: the rest of the Team got me a G1, so I can cache whenever I want and not have to worry about having to load the GPS & Palm-COOL!!!!! Since I am new to this phone any tips, tricks, suggestions or stories would be great!!

LOL, they are actually pretty sturdy. I have dropped mine a few times already and all is well. Worst part right now is waiting for their major update and of course living out in the sticks no 3G, but I pick it up in Ocala. We were very suprised (and pleased) at how well the geocaching apps work for it, got down to 2 m on my 1st hunt and found it right away. They developers make updates and changes daily, so it is only getting better. Just like having a computer in your hand :D

YES. I have a seperate app for an actual compass right now because I don't have the cupcake update yet. once that comes then I can install the new version of radar which now gives compass headings. If there is a feature you need then you email the developers and they generally add it. GeoBeagle has been updating like crazy.

Yes I got your email-i sent one back. We went away for the weekend, took the kids to Adventure Island and went to visit friends in Sarasota.
Tell your wife it was only $179 (if its your time for an upgrade). NO more having to load the GPS, bring paper and pen to makes notes, or use a Palm, you can send SMS text messages to geocaching site of your finds and rare DNF's and all that info will be in your "Field Notes". Do pocket queries while you are driving down the road and then upload right to you phone. We did that this weekend but didn't stop to find any, still just learning about everything it does. You just might have to buy your wife one first...... Rob cant his hands off of mine!!!

I can see it now! Why did you bring your phone out in the rain? Why is you phone so dirty? Why doesn't your phone work?
I bought a fancy phone last year and took it home. I started to look at it and all it's fancy stuff it did and realize "I'm going to break this thing the first time I take it on the trails", so I returned it and got the military phone that can get wet and be dropped. You should see it now! I had it out on the trail when it was raining Sunday. You can read my log on Geocaching.com.
I think I will wait until they come out with one that is waterproof and shockproof.
I still want one though! :geek:
