Gigatone® Entertainment today announced that they have selected Apisphere™ as their partner to host a “Great Race” style geocaching adventure during the myRecordFantasy™ event where Starship’s Micky Thomas and other rock stars will be using Apisphere’s Geomate.jr® geocaching GPS to navigate to and find hidden geocaches. Rock star lead teams will race each other to be the first to find each geocache and complete a given challenge to earn a special edition Geomate.jr coin – all while being followed by cameras for the production of the myRecordFantasy reality show.
“We instantly loved the idea of hosting a geocaching challenge as part of our myRecordFantasy event,” said Mitch Koulouris, CEO of Gigatone Entertainment. “It really provides that sense of challenge, reward and adventure that we were looking for. But it was the ease of use of the Geomate.jr and the custom cache ability that made it possible to host an event like this.”
Designed to make the fun and excitement of geocaching accessible to families and children, the Geomate.jr is a very easy-to-use, affordable geocaching specific GPS device. It is the first and only GPS device to come pre-loaded with about 250,000 geocache locations covering all 50 U.S. states – no typing in coordinates or downloads needed. Now with the Geomate.jr Custom Cache ability, schools, Scout troops, youth clubs and even rock stars can create their own private geocaching course through a simple web interface and load it to as many Geomate.jr devices as they want – eliminating the need to rely on publically published geocache locations or complicated GPS software.
