How does "send to phone" thing work?

Recommended Posts

Noticed on the Geocache site a button to "send to my phone." But searching help for phone or send to phone finds nothing to help with how this works or what it does. I have, and use, iPhone Geocache App (wondeful) so can't help but think clicking that button will send that particular cache's info to my phone app. Searched help and forums but find nothing about this.

 

Can someone shed some light into this feeble mind of mine? Maybe I am overthinking this...

 

thank you!

In short, it doesn't do anything unless you use "Trimble Outdoors Software". Since you're using the official iPhone app, you can search for a cache from within that. Maybe that button did more in the past before the API-enabled apps were released?

When I search by Geocache name, I systematically get 'NO CACHE FOUND'.

Did anyone experience this ?

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks :)

With the Iphone you need to go to the search page of the app on the phone and type in the GC number for the cache. Then you can save it and use it off line.
