They could keep the owners employed with big guaranteed salaries for the next 10 years? Maybe someday Garmin GPSr’s will have some sort of NFC (Near Field communication) that can read cheap tags like RFID’s. The you could have a wherigo type game played with munzee’s. That would bring the adventure back into the sport.

Id probably place Munzee PM-ship at <5% of total users firstly. Secondly I dont think either GS or Garmin would be interested in a purchase as Munzee is not direct competition for GS (with most Munzers being GC.com cachers already) and while perhaps more attractive to Garmin the whole hardware point above covers that. Also, I doubt the Munzee boys would sell. I hope by now they are making a profit for themselves and their hard work but I think their baby would be worth more to them than either company would be willing to pay.

I think the post lays out a couple of synergies between the organizations. Not everyone would be happy if munzee.com was purchased by either of those companies but it is a possibility.

The title of this article is 100% misleading bordering on a total untruth. Has Munzee or Garmin even hinted at this happening????

I don’t think there’s any benefit for erither Garmin or Groundspeak to aquire them, nor do I think they will. There are no synergies that would benefit either company.
