Topic: Waypoint Shortcut

Posted by DudleyGrunt on Aug. 06 2012,8:30 pmI'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.

Posted by DudleyGrunt on Aug. 07 2012,7:41 amI 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.
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.
