iPhone, coordinates and puzzles

Recommended Posts

I've been using the official (purchased) app for a while now on my iPhone and love it.... Apart from one thing.

When I'm out in "the field" enjoying a puzzle cache I find/work out the final caches coordinates and then my problem arises.. I can't input the coordinates in to the official app and I can't input the coordinates in to apple maps as these do not allow this.. I do have a basic GPS which I have been using to put coordinates in but this can be annoying some times especially as I have my iPhone out I front of me.

So my question is what coordinate/GPS position "finder" app so other iPhone users use?

And secondly why doesn't the Groundspeak after have this feature? It would be a major thing I would of thought especially for the "puzzle solvers"..

Thanks in advance for any replies and solutions!!

Awesome!!

I wish that I had known this the last month. Lol

Is there a "map" app that has the same "dial" input for coordinates? If not is it possible to do it on my Groundspeak app with out going in to "the find a cache" part? I just think that this maybe useful for other stuff also.. Lol

No, you'll have to be in the "Navigate to Geocache" function. But it can be any cache, not necessarily the one associated with the puzzle. Just pull up one nearby.

I failed my first Muti because I didn't know this could be done until months later.
