Apisphere, Inc., a leading provider of location-smart solutions, today announced distribution agreements with Azimut Electronics of Spain and Gear AB of Sweden to promote and establish distribution channels throughout Europe for the Geomate.jrTM. The first GPS device designed to make the fun and excitement of geocaching, the fast-growing treasure hunt phenomenon, accessible to families and children of all ages, the Geomate.jr comes pre-loaded with over 200,000 geocache locations covering all of Europe. The family-friendly Geomate.jr eliminates the traditional fuss of Internet connections, downloads, entering coordinates and preplanning to provide a spontaneous geocaching experience families can enjoy anytime, anywhere.
“Ever since the successful launch of the Geomate.jr in the US, there has been a strong European demand,” said Warren Hewerdine, VP of Marketing at Apisphere. “With their extensive distribution channels and knowledge of the outdoor and electronics markets, Azimut and Gear are just the partners we need to ensure Geomate.jr success in Europe.”
People who go geocaching use a GPS receiver to locate hidden geocaches; containers of various sizes with a logbook and often trinkets (that you can trade) stashed inside. Geocaching is already enjoyed by millions of people in the US and is rapidly growing in popularity around the world.
