In geocaching, a beacon is a device that transmits a wireless message, which can be used to find a geocache.
Examples of beacon devices:
- NFC transmitter
- WiFi router
- Radio transmitter
If your cache has a wireless beacon, follow these guidelines:
Task: GZ=> MAC Adress without ":" = HEX => DEC. DEC = ABCDEFGHIJKLMNO
- Add the Wireless Beacon attribute to your cache page.
- List waypoints that use beacons as physical waypoints.
- Do not state beacon brands in your listing unless this information helps people find the cache. Make sure that your text follows our commercial guidelines.
