android app how do I enter coordinates

Recommended Posts

I went to a multi cache and had coordinates to the next location. Did not see an option on the android geocaching app for entering coords. is there a way to do it on the app or is there another app that will do it.

 

Thanks,

I have just asked the same question on the thread about entering coords on an IPhone 5.

 

As far as I know, you can't enter coords on the android app. If this is the case, it's a bit short sighted.

 

I've downloaded an app called GPS Essentials to do this. It's a great app and has loads of customizable options.

Try this:

 

* Open the multi cache from the list.

* Select "Navigate to Geocache".

* Select "Map" as the Navigation Method.

* Hit the Menu button (usually at bottom left of the phone) and select "Add Waypoint".

* fill in a name and the coordinates, then press "Add Waypoint".

 

I'm not sure (I haven't actually used this feature), but you should now be navigating to the new coordinates.

Hi Larry, thanks for your help. I don't know if this feature has been added in the last update, but I've never seen it before! I just tried it and it works perfectly. Thanks.
