Entering GPS Coordinates in App

Recommended Posts

We are new to Geocaching, we love it but are really struggling with entering coordinates.


When we solve a clue and work out where to find a cache, how and where do we enter coordinates properly?


I see that the compass in the app tells me exactly where I am, but how can I punch in these numbers to know where to go? Or should I be using a separate GPS compass app?


N51. O1.313

W001 10.713


Can anyone help?


Many thanks,

You need to create a waypoint when navigating to any cache.

Just select Waypoints, Add... and use the coordinates of your location (or any others you want).

Then you can rename this waypoint of yours and use it to any other cache you want to place or a Final Point of a Multi and/or Mystery, by instance.
