I've noted that many of the ICU caches have inaccurate coords and thought it might be a good idea if we can help out EyeOfSauron and grab a new set of coords for ICU's near us. I've posted updated coords for #19 and Wandering #4 today to start it off. So if there is one nearby or someplace you happen to stop, perhaps take an extra moment to grab a new set of coords.

I always figured the coords were just supposed to get you to the intersection as a whole, but not actually to the container itself. Eh, maybe I read too much into it.

I'm starting to think it's an iPhone issue. I believe EoS mentioned using an iPhone for one of the Wandering Eyes that ended up being on the other side of the road from where the GPS pointed. I know others have mentioned poor accuracy when using the iPhone as a GPS.

iPhones aren't WAAS enabled so you're looking at 10 meter at best. Its great for finding caches but i never rely on mine for getting the coords of caches I hide.
