It 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?
