Geocaching: A real world, modern day treasure hunt - now for KIDS!

With a GPS unit that provides coordinates to find treasure, this kit is a real life adventure kids can't resist!

Grab the Geomate Jr. Geocaching GPS unit and immediately you're on a mission to find Geocache containers! Turn it on and in just a few moments your GPS gives you your present location, as well as 20 of the nearest cache locations. Additionally, it reveals valuable information including the cache I.D., difficulty, terrain, size, and directions for where to go.

Drive, hike, ride, climb, jump, fly, raft, run - How you get there is what the fun of Geocaching is all about!

And, since it's preloaded with over 250,000 caches throughout all 50 states and most countries, you can spark up a Geocaching treasure hunt anywhere you go!

Once you've finally found the Geocache, lucky you! Open it up to find the cache treasure - Then, you can take the item there and replace it with an item of equal or greater value. Along with a new treasure, you’ll have fun putting something equally exciting there for another Geocache seeker to find.

When you find the box, you’ll also discover a serial number to use on Geocaching.com. With it, you can register your find, learn who else has been there, and discover what they found.

Every night Geocaching.com (the world database of geocaching) transmits the current 1.5 million Geocaches in the world to mygeomate.com so owners of the Geomate Jr. Geocaching GPS Units can update their device with their Geomate Jr. Update Kit.

There is no charge! It’s always current and available for free updates.

This Geomate Jr. Geocaching GPS is the most affordable and is the only device made exclusively for Geocaching. Plus, it’s simple 2-button design is kid-friendly. With only 2-buttons, this easy to use design gets you started on exciting adventures the whole family can enjoy.

Maybe you’d like your Trackable to get to Europe or Germany. Put the Trackable in any geocache you find anywhere - and then, whenever you’d like, go to geocaching.com to find where your trackable has been. Other Geocachers will help with your Trackable’s mission!

    My Grandsons Love This Toy!
    Posted 7/25/2014 by Suzanne Byrne

    I would say "won't put it down!" because they wouldn't if they were allowed to have access without their mom or dad. But at $100 a pop, that will have to wait until they are older. However the Geo-Cache GPS is a fabulous-fun-learning tool! I'm the Grandma and was given a big thumbs up for that gift!
