Searching GPS on App

Recommended Posts

If I am trying to complete a puzzle cache, How do I search the co ordinates using the official Geocaching App?

 

I have found many apps that will give me the co-ordinates for a location, but not reversed.

Which app?

Which phone?

 

Any app which uses Groundspeaks API is an 'official' app!

I don't know if it helps, but ill explain how i do it in the geocaching.com iOS app.

 

Once you have the corrected coors solved on paper, go to the geocaching app.

 

Open the cache

Go to Navigate to Geocache

At the top there are three dots(or a flag) depending on the app version you are using.

Anyway press on the flag(Add Waypoint in the latest app version) when you find it.

Insert new coords and save the waypoint.

Click on the waypoint

Select 'Set as Target'

 

Your GPSr will now guide you to the geocache or the next step of the puzzle(to the coords you entered in the waypoint anyway)...

Hope this helps...

When I select Navigate, I get Compass, map or directions... No dots or flag.

 

You need to be navigating to a cache before you can add a waypoint...choose map or compass, but (probably) not directions.

 

You won't see the flag until you have selected the cache and are navigating to it.
