Geocaching is a very popular, free real-world outdoor activity that involves locating hidden containers called geocaches. Mobile devices with GPS modules, such as smartphones or classic GPS navigations, are used to find geocache treasures that range from geocoins and ornamental buttons to currency, books, and CDs. Some caches have a plot or storyline attached to the find, giving the game a mysterious quality.
