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 .

Garmin Map 62

Post by thomasvm » Sun Jan 08, 2012 6:43 pm

I have eventually a Garmin Map 62 (basic model) with European maps for sale in the coming 2-3 weeks. The unit was purchased in August 2011 and the maps a bit later. As new you can buy the unit and maps for around EUR350. The unit is in as new condition, used very little - I am selling it on behalf of my dad :shock: - the asking price would be in the region of EUR250 8) Anybody interested??
