Geocaching App ReviewI live in a field. It's great. I am surrounded by grass, dog-walkers and alpacas (honest, there are loads!); at least that's what I thought until I got hold of Groundspeak's Geocaching app for the iPhone. Then I discovered that there were about fifteen hidden treasures, all within walking distance, waiting to be found – even in the quiet village of Thornton, five miles west of Bradford centre, geocachers have left their mark. This article reviews both the Groundspeak Geocaching iPhone App and my first venture into the world of geocaching.

Great combination of app review & trip report, but maybe I'm biased!

I used to Geocache back in the early days of Garmin GPSII but haven't for many years.

However the iPhone App is so polished and well implemented that the bug has bitten again!

As soon as I'm fit and leg is mended I'll be out to visit a few, can't wait!

Very Happy Yes the iPhone app is good as it is possible to look up new geocaches when away from home. I have only just started geocaching and I too was surprised to see how many had been set up in my local area of Weybourne, Farnham. Although the iPhone app is good I prefer to use my Garmin Oregon, but you need to prepare beforehand and it is worth becoming a Geocaching Premium member to get all the details in the GPX download.
