Need a GPS Unit?
Through the support of the IUSA AID Fund, the Geocaching Club at IU purchased 6 GPS units that can be used by the club at IU and all IU Students. The Geocaching Club put together "GPS kits," which include a GPS unit, a data cable for transferring waypoints, rechargable batteries and a case to hold all the equipment. They are available now to check out at the Government Information & Kent Cooper Services in the Wells Library located on the second floor through the escalators in the lobby. This service is free of cost and can be checked out for four days at a time!

Through this initiative, we hope to:
- Make GPS technology and geocaching more accessible to IU students
- Provide GPS resources to IU students to be able to conduct research and school projects
- Provide resources to IU students that will promote outdoor activities and exercise
- Promote geocaching to IU students
- Eliminate the cost of entry for students who are new to geocaching or conducting geospatial research by eliminating the cost of a GPS unit
