Garmin GPSMAP 64It was pointed out to me on Monday by cacher Dr. House that the new announcement from Garmin made no mention of Opencaching.com.    I wondered if it meant that Garmin and Groundspeak were officially working together.   I have since been able to confirm from  Groundspeak that it is indeed true; Groundspeak and Garmin collaborated on the preloading of geocaches for the GPSMAP 64.    My source indicated that this is a first step in what is hoped to be a more cooperative working relationship.

It was a little over three years ago that Garmin launched opencaching.com.     After some initial excitement the Garmin site was unable to attract a significant following.    I have attempted to get a comment from Garmin but they are yet to respond.

The feedback to this move from the geocaching community appears to be positive.  What do you think of this move?

I have been writing the cachemania blog since 2008. I'm interested in the development of geocaching and the many ways that people play the game.
