The day the world changed!
Blue Switch Day, May 2, 2000, is the day accurate GPS technology became available to everyone. It launched innovation and new technology that changed the world forever. It’s not a coincidence the first geocache was hidden the next day, and the game of geocaching was born!
From May 2 through December 31, 2021, you earn a Blue Switch digital souvenir when you find a geocache, Adventure Lab®, or attend an event! Learn more here.
Celebrate the difference of then to now with this amazing geocoin designed by our very own Roxxy. This hinged design allows you to turn the page from before the switch, and to see some ways that our world changed for the better after!
Blue Switch Geocoin- Before and After Edition is trackable at Geocaching.com with a unique icon.
This is a unique hinged design with a one piece back, and a page that turns to show examples of the before and after of the greater availability of gps technology.
