Android App

Recommended Posts

I recently learned about benchmarking as part of a multi-cache in my area and I'm wondering if anyone has an app that they use for Android phones. Any suggestions for  searching on the go?

For ease of managing waypoints only, something like Spyglass might do.  If you want the whole shebang, Locus Maps can show maps and everything offline.  Or search for “GPS” in the App Store.

Search for Benchmap. I have used it for years.

BenchMap was made for Benchmark hunters. You can use any app that can support GPX files if you wish.

Right now, due to changes on the NGS servers (combined WITH changes in the Android SDK), my app MAY have issues loading up datasheets. I'm currently working on a fix, and hope to have an update posted soon!

Thank you so much! I'm up in Grand Teton NP visiting my boyfriend and we went up to Yellowstone for the last 2 days but it was more of a sightseeing thing than anything else. Found some BMs by accident along the way and was hoping to verify. App wasn't working consistently even with strong signal, but I'm just thankful there IS and app for this. Hopefully I'll be able to find some verifiable ones before I leave the 16th. I haven't been giving it much of a try in my hometown of College Station, TX, but I think I'm going to integrate it more along with my caching. Thanks again!

No problem!
About a month ago, the NGS realized that one of their servers was taking longer than usual to process datasheets.

Last night I released an update - so that in the future, slow server times won't cause a failure to load a datasheet. It also:
* Fixes the USGS Topographic Maps,
* Adds USGS "USTopo" maps.
* Fixes several crashes.

There's an issue with font color in a couple screens, working on that now.
