    Is there any other information hidden in this tag, other then the coordinates?

    So I think I screwed you and my earlier post was just of the coordinates that the Geochaching site gives you.

    I had seen the "Barcode" (I believe it is referred to as a QR code) but didn't understand what the hell it had to do with anything; now I do and sorry if I sent you to the wrong area!

    Anyway, it is not actually a microsoft tag and that app didn't work for it. There are a few other apps that could read it. Also since you are on an iPod Touch; If you email the picture of the code to yourself and save it to your camera roll you can use the app "Barcode" (it's got a coded horse as the icon) to upload the picture from your camera into the code reader. You can also just go to the picture itself and save it to your camera roll: Here is the link to just the code picture.

    If you still want the info from the QR code let me know and I'll post them for you but I figure you might want to go about getting the info yourself. When you do select the picture from your camera roll don't scale it or move it just use it the way it is and it should work (I tried zooming in on it and it wouldn't work).

    Also, hope you know your math for the coordinates!!

    Let me know how it goes.

    Just out of curiosity; did you figure it out? Not just the code but the equation as well?
