Pda Software For Geocaching And Turn By Turn


Recommended Posts

Mapopolis for audible and visual auto-navigation. You can try this for free for 9 days - mapopolis.com Mapopolis also has bearing, distance to cache and current coordinates for use in the woods. It also has a breadcrumb tracking feature.

 

gpxtomaplet to overlay all the cache icons on top of the Mapopolis maps so you can use it to autonavigate to the nearest street by the cache locations. I don't know which other navigation programs do tghis in PPC's but this is a really great feature. You can see where the caches are while you are just driving around.

 

gpxsonar for paperless caching; to see the web pages in your PPC.

Mapopolis is an important part of my geocaching setup. I use a geko for my gps, just an arrow (and a compass, it's a 301). My palm has cachemate for caches and mapopolis for mapping. Cachemate has a mapopolis plug-in that will export caches such that they show up on the mapopolis map. It does do turn-by-turn, although I'm not a big user. In unfamiliar complex areas it can be very handy. Naturally it doesn't show you where you are on the map, but I can usually figure that out for myself. The map is easier to manipulate than a map loaded into, say, a legend. If your palm will run it I recommend trying it - the cost is pretty reasonable.

I use TomTom with my axim and love it. It is paired up with a Holux GPslim236 bluetooth receiver and the sirf III chipset works wonders nicely tucked away in my glovebox. I also use BeeLine for caches but that is just when I dont have my hand held with me.

Is that just because you don't have the Palm connected to the GPS? I've seccessfuly connected my Geko 201 to a Palm IIIxe and got Cachemate to talk to it. Just take the Geko cable and the Palm serial cable and connect them together with a 9-pin null modem adapter.

Can you overlay caches into Tom Tom like Mapopolis?
