chirp can be programmed by any compatible wireless-enabled Garmin handheld to store geocaching hints and other information. When other geocachers arrive near your cache, they’ll be alerted that the cache is nearby, and then they’ll be able to access the hints you’ve loaded into chirp. And when you return, chirp will tell you how many visitors have been to your cache.
Set Up a Multicache
With chirp, setting up and maintaining a multicache has never been easier. Using your compatible Garmin handheld device, chirp automatically transmits program coordinates 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.
Built To Cache — Built to Last
chirp was designed by geocachers, so it’s built to take the rigors of the outdoors. Plus, chirp is password protected, so you’re the only one with programming powers. chirp has a battery life of up to a year and the battery is easy to replace, plus chirp features a cache-perfect, small size and is durable and waterproof.

Dispozitivul Chirp este utilizat ca emitator radio pentru jocul GPS numit Geocaching. Odata programat si plasat, emite prin protocol radio ANT+ coordonate, indicii si mesaje scurte catre unitatile GPS cu functii wireless de la Garmin, pe o distanta de 10m, avand o baterie ce tine pana la 1 an. In Romania acest fel de emitator nu a fost utilizat de geocacheri pentru simplul motiv ca nu era disponibil, eu am avut noroc cu cei de la TriSport, care au rezolvat aceasta problema si au adaugat produsul in magazinul lor online. Produsul functioneaza perfect, nici o problema, l-am verificat si cu o aplicatie / telefon Android asa ca va fi in curand pus ca parte a unui geocache, in zona Albei Iulia. Multumesc, Trisport.
