What do they mean by saying "paperless geocaching"?
You can send the coordinates directly to your GPS unit. No need to print out the sheet.
instead of printing out the info on a geocache you want to find so you have the hint and what not you can plug in your gpsr and put it directly into it.
Most of your newer handheld GPS devices allow for paperless caching.
i geocache a lot more since I can use my phone. Tat is the best way to do it. I'll log it online while the wife signs the log.
When geocaching first started, most of us used to print the caches out. This was before smartphones. Then, people used pdas, but these were expensive, and had to be loaded prior to going out, as a lot if them didn't have internet. These days, almost everyone has a smartphone-you can use the official geocaching app, or c:geo, which is free. Both will allow you to search nearby caches on your phone. I think very few people in this day and age, will print out caches.
