Small Excerpt from Garmin:
They cost about 23 bucks, battery last a year and were designed by geocachers so they should be tough.chirp is a one-of-a-kind wireless beacon designed specifically for the outdoor adventures of geocaching. Affordable, durable and waterproof, chirp can communicate with, and be programmed by, any compatible wireless-enabled Garmin handheld (sold separately). chirp stores hints, multicache coordinates, counts visitors and confirms the cache is nearby. chirp is password protected and has a battery life of up to one year.
But it seems that this could be an extra theft item even if the owner is the only one who can unlock it, but if it's stolen your still out 23 bucks!
It would be nice on the more remote caches that are higher difficulty and you can broadcast some extra hints if the seeker wishes to use them vs what is put up on the caching page and uploaded to the gpsr. But then again, here in our state we have the phone a friend list and know, or know someone, who knows the geocacher that placed it usually! What do yall think?
