It could be taken a step further.  

- multiple caches and seekers
- whenever a chache is found by one person the map is updated (via sms)
to show that the cache has been removed
- central server could be used to prevent cheating, e.g. send the codes
to the server, or "host" phone, which authenticates and updates the
shared map

This would add multiplayer strategy to geocacheing.
