App - Input Lat/Long

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

How do I search with a lat/long co-oridnates? Tried typing an example into the search dialoge but just cam eup with an error message  (invalid code).

 

Also, does the app show you your location? As a map referece or lat/long, not visually?

 

Edit: the compas tab shows lat/long - both "target" and your actual location, which helps, but I dont see how to set a target as lat/log rather than a caceh reference

 

Thanks

Choose a nearby cache (or if it's apuzzle or multi, use the cache itself), and set/add a waypoint.  Tap the cache, scroll down to Waypoints,  and tap the plus sign to add a waypoint.  Fill in the appropriate coodinates, name it if you want to, then save it.

 

Then highlight that waypoint, and tap the arrow icon to navigate to it.

 

The geocaching app doesn't have a "clean" way of simply navigating to a random set of coordinates; you need to add them as a waypoint of another cache.
