New cache alert? in General Questions Posted August 11, 2019 · Report reply On 7/1/2019 at 2:06 PM, thelinuxnoob said: You can get an email notification sent via text message if a cache is placed within a predetermined radius of a specific location. That's the part I find sort of inconvenient. I had hoped to be able to simply enable a setting that would notify me if a cache was placed in my vicinity. Please do not take this as a snarky comment. I wondered how a radius from your location is different from your vicinity?
