When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

First Nuvi I got stopped picking up satellites after about 3months. Sent it back as faulty and got a slight upgrade. Haven't had a problem since and that was about 4 or 5 years ago. Is yours still under warranty?

Price held till july so maybe they will be back in stock by then. I agree that argos are devils for being out of stock when it comes to anything that is worth buying when its on sale. :cry:

Our garmin 215 was not being very helpful yesterday. Signal seemed to be jumping around a lot giving various distances to GZ. We are thinking of getting a handheld etrex or similar. Would be gratful for any ideas on what would be best without breaking the bank. Thanks in advance.
