Geocaching software, free

Reading a few comments, its pretty good by the sound of it.

Id like to hear how much data it uses though.

Not much I beleive but I have not hadmy first bill!

Onlything I have noticed if caching where phone range is weak it seems to crash the phone at some point.

Not good if using the GPS to find things!!!

AM I the only one who has foundthis fault?

Is it exaduraeted by me using Viewrange simlatainiously?

Other coments apprechiated.

No, you're not :-( Like so many of these things, cleverness seems somewhat proportional to flakiness, and I've found this app crashes a lot.

Works fine on my N95 8GB. Searching, navigation, radar, compass etc.

I use this app on my n95-1 and it works well. I've not had any crashes and I've found geocaches with it.

Yeah - never crashed on my N95-1 (Running v20 and now v21), data use is pretty minimal.

Cheers

Nokia PC Suite and its Application Installer.

Or copy the .jar to the phone over USB in mass storage mode and install that way.

Or send it to the phone using Bluetooth.

Or use the phone web browser to download it directly.

okay, will have a go.
I tried to download it from the link via the phone, but it told me phone wasn't supported.

So what is the jad for then?
Only asking to increase my knowledge

Thanks V Much

If you want knowledge, try opening the jad in Notepad

It can contain lots of info on certificates, original place of download aso.

Nice proggy, btw. Been using it for a long time and my son loves it. If you haven't been geocaching with the kids yet, you are really missing out on something good

well...i installed the jar and the program looks great, hoping to use it at the weekend. I must admit that it looks like a really professional program for nothing !

And it did find loads of caches nearby, which is great because i live in a rural area and wasn't expecting much.

Will report back how i get on later

ps..cheers for the info about ther jad file

Well.....went out last night and found two out of four caches, using just this software on my phone. Not sure it's good enough if you want to take it up on a serious hobby, but as a cheap introduction to the idea, it's not bad at all. Definately worth a look

So given optimal conditions, how close do you reckon you can get to co-ords
and then on poor covered conditions, how far away are you?


cheers

When you are moving in a straight line towards your goal, the presicion at the end is usually a few meters/yards. But if you are unable to find the cache and try the program again, the position it originally told you was the exact spot can now be 8-10 meters/yards away. A bit confusing, but I guess it's the result of the cheap GPS receivers used in our phones.
