I've been using coord.ch as a short cut for OpenCaching.US for a while, but had never actually visited the main site, until now.  Not only does it work with all these sites, it's shorter than using Groundspeak's coord.info.

I just fixed a typo in the link, above.

Usefulness of using this is that if you know the waypoint, you can amend id to the URL, to create a shorter URL.

Such as...

National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Chapel (Virtual)  (N02D97) by DudleyGrunt
URL options would be...
1) navicache.com/cgi-bin/db/displaycache2.google2.wap.pl?CacheID=11671
2) coord.ch/N02D97

It doesn't give anyone access to anything they wouldn't have by using the longer URL, but I find it easier to remember and it takes up less space.
