Put on your walking shoes as Magellan’s GPS treasure hunt kicks off across 25 states

Thales Navigation, announced the beginning of its summer-long, 25-state Magellan’s GPS Treasure Hunt. Thales Navigation will unveil locations of three hidden prizes every Friday in locations across the nation through Sept. 1. The treasure hunt is based on a new genre of outdoor activities called geocaching, a Web-based game that requires the use of a GPS receiver, which guides participants in a hunt for trinket-filled containers, or “caches,” using latitude and longitude coordinates and other clues. The containers are usually hidden in a public park, forest area or the like, offering players a unique summer-fun reason to walk, cycle or take family drives in the great outdoors.
