Excellent for Caching!

I have been using this app for several years and love it, especially the ability to preload my waypoint and cache searches. I am a premium member, so I have never ran into the 'restrictions' from Groundspeak on limits. Solid product, gets me tight to the gz with only legit dnf's.

Fun everywhere I go

I’ve used this in North &South America, Asia & the Middle East to find caches. Most of the complaints from years ago are rectified. Try it, you’ll like it !

Was a great app.

Right now this app no longer works fully. You can only download to it from pocket queries. It will not do anything live. You can not log finds, update caches,see cache pages,or update list I have. It was working great and would be the only app I used but until it works again I can not give it a good rating
