How do I read the hints?

Recommended Posts

So wondering how and where to find out how to decode the hints?

You haven't mentioned where you are reading the hint. Device, GPS, phone, computer? More info required.

You can read it on the cache page by clicking "decrypt". As for phones I've no idea. I load caches to my Garmin GPS from GSAK and hints are decrypted automatically.

I've just had a look at my Windows phone (Geocaching Plus app) and there is a question mark icon which when clicked gives the already decoded hint. Can't answer for iphone or android.

The good phone apps will decrypt the hint by touching it twice. (The hint)

The GC.com iPhone app auto decrypts the hint.

 

On the website, see the below screenshot and click the Decrypt link.

If you print out a cache page with a hint and want to decode while not at a computer, use the key to the right of the hint.

In CacheSense, touching the hint (once) toggles it back and forth between encrypted and decrypted.

 

But yeah, most apps make it easy to read the decrypted hint.

I was using my phone and tablet. I will have to see if it will let me decode with Android. Thanks!

So, you're using Android to view caches. Are you looking at cache pages through a web browser on your device(s) or are you using an app to view caches? If you are using an app, then which app?
