            The GARMIN Chirp™ is now a rare, discontinued, one-of-a-kind wireless beacon designed specifically for the outdoor adventures of geocaching.  Affordable, durable and waterproof, Chirp™ can communicate with, and be programmed by, any compatible wireless-enabled GARMIN handheld (sold separately).  The GARMIN Chirp™ stores hints, multicache coordinates, counts visitors and confirms the cache is nearby.  Chirp™ is password protected and has a battery life of up to one year.

The Chirp™ can be programmed by any compatible wireless-enabled GARMIN handheld GPS to store geocaching hints and other information.  When other geocachers arrive near your cache, they’ll be alerted that the cache is nearby, and then they’ll be able to access the hints you’ve loaded into Chirp™.  And when you return, Chirp™ will tell you how many visitors have been to your cache.

Setup a Multicache

With Chirp™, setting up and maintaining a multicache has never been easier.  Using your compatible GARMIN handheld device, Chirp™ automatically transmits program coordinates so other cachers can find each stage of your multicache.  Or if you’re on a multicache, Chirp™ lets you download coordinates.  So there’s no need to manually enter numerous sets of complex coordinates – there’s just one simple touch and you’re on your way to the next stage.

Built To Cache — Built to Last

Chirp™ was designed by geocachers, so it’s built to take the rigors of the outdoors.  Plus, Chirp™ is password protected, so you’re the only one with programming powers.  Chirp™ has a battery life of up to a year and the battery is easy to replace, plus Chirp™ features a cache-perfect, small size and is durable and waterproof.
