No app will increase the accuracy of your phone, they will all display what the GPS chip is feeding them.

When you get coordinates that you feel are good, give them to a friend and let him/her test them out, using whatever device they use.

Being impatient is not a good thing when placing caches.

 

(Not good when searching for caches, either.)

Understandable.

 

But have you checked the location in the Planning Map?

It's not the end of your research, but it's a good start.

 

Have you read the Guidelines? Clicked all the links in the Guidelines? Read everything carefully...a few times?

The Help Center has an entire section about hiding a geocache. It's worth the time and effort to do so.

There's a lot more to hiding than just getting a set of coordinates. And it takes some time and research.

 

Saves you and your Reviewer a lot of potential frustration if you thoroughly research your hide.

Understandable. All true and think my reviewer is tired of me at moment as have changed coordinates again. spot on this time and verified by a friend. however he seems to be ignoring me (or maybe he has a life ha ha) see that's me again. no patience (though I always say that patients are for hospitals) :rolleyes:
