With Garmin's chirp, setting up and maintaining a multicache has never been easier. Using your compatible Garmin handheld device (such as Oregon 300, Oregon 400, Oregon 450, Oregon 450t, Dakota 20, Map 62s, Map 62st and the Map 78s), chirp automatically transmits program coordinates when within 10 meters of the device so other cachers can find each stage of your multicache. Or if you’re on a multicache, chirp lets you download coordinates. So there’s no need to manually enter numerous sets of complex coordinates – there’s just one simple touch and you’re on your way to the next stage.
Designed and tested by geocachers, chirp is built to take the rigors of the outdoors (waterproof). And because chirp is password protected, the owner is the only one with programming powers. With a battery life of up to a year and a battery that’s easy to replace, chirp is long-lasting and user-friendly. Measuring 1.3” by 0.9” (slightly bigger than a quarter) and weighing less than an ounce, chirp is small enough to incorporate easily into your favorite caches – whether they’re already placed or still being planned.
Although chirp is designed for geocaching, it is really up to the user to decide what they can do with it. Any application where you want to deliver a message (up to 50 characters) or waypoint to GPS users can be made possible with either one chirp or as many as you want. One example we thought of is having chirps placed along a trail to keep the gps user informed of any interesting details along the way, such as a good place to spot white throated sparrow. Since they are inexpensive, the potential uses of this device are practically limitless.
