GeoGearHeadsFor the two hundred thirty-ninth edition of the GeoGearHeads The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talk through several smaller topics. First up were a couple of tips from Cedar & Co. Then of all the stories about Pokémon Go, there were a few interesting ones the guys mentioned;

Astronut sent in the very interesting article from Space News Feed titled "Seeing the satnav for the trees." Another article titled "Australia's latitude and longitude coordinates out by more than 1.5 metres, scientists say" submitted by Team MavEtJu talks about the movement of the earth. The iMore article "Best iPhone bike mounts to withstand the toughest trails" was shared as a good resource to check out bike mounts and Engadget's "The best USB battery packs" for selecting a good external battery for the field and travel. But the "I accidentally broke the super-rugged Cat S60 smartphone" article generated some discussion about how fragile even the most rugged devices can be. Then there was the news that " iOS 10 warns when your Lightning port gets wet" which sounds like a good idea. Finally, the "US government agency calls for the end of SMS authentication" article looked at a report which might change the was we log-in.

This audio is only the first portion of the intended debate with LANMonky and scottberks. The show will be rescheduled for a later time – hopefully early September.

GeoGearHeadsWe talk with lullabye4u for the two hundred thirty-sixth edition of the GeoGearHeads about her puzzle boxes and other favorited geocaches. She sent a PDF of some puzzle container designs for other Geocachers to check out and talked through the containers she and kaput360 designed and built for "Battle with the Jabberwocky: AIW #12" (GC6DZXK), "Down The Rabbit Hole: Alice In Wonderland #19" (GC6J61F), "!Amazeballs!" (GC5VCRF), and "It's All Fun & Games until Someone Divides by Zero" (GC5ME15).

GeoGearHeadsFor the two hundred thirty-fifth edition of the GeoGearHeads we have a collection of smaller subjects to discuss. gslinkandslinkymama (of "Geocache Talk"), LANMonky (of "Caching in the North West"), The Bad Cop, and DarrylW4 kicked off the show with a correction by Team MavEtJu on the speed of Bluetooth. Next was coverage of Garmin's press release on the new Oregon 700, 750, and 750t. Nighthawk700 provided some insight to the Connect IQ apps (now on handhelds with the new 700 series) thanks to a posting and discussion in Garmin's Developer forum. Sherminator18 is probably a little disappointed as her eTrex 30x doesn't due the new wireless transfers but she's looking for a way to get the caches from her phone to the GPSR. Stevenw54 e-mailed after attending "Cachin' the Bay" (GC5Z4XF) thanking us for the information in "GGH 168: Attending Megas." He then added the tip to load and test Wherigo cartridges you might need before heading to the event. Also on Wherigo, Snowy1 e-mailed about doing Wherigos from a tablet. DarrylW4 provided links to WhereYouGo and whereIgo from the Google Play Store and the WhereYouGo app did the trick. We also heard that Cachly is loosing their offline tile provider in the coming weeks. JerseyEric shared that someone Periscoped their find on his "Northern Boards" (GC6HMRA) cache. In other news coming on the day of recording, Google announced through their Maps blog the arrival of multiple destinations in the Android version of Google Maps app (iOS will follow soon). Then they wrapped up the conversation with the news from GPSWorld about the launch of GLONASS satellite 53 to replenish their constellation.
