I too geocached for many years.

I'm not saying accuracy isn't important. I'm saying that searching for that=
 accuracy at a reasonable cost, for what you are doing, is wasted effort.

All you need to do is say 'I'm at this location for this recording' A metre=
 or 2 isn't going to make a difference one way or the other.
