Garmin's open cache iPhone app?

Post by DownwardlyMobile » Fri Dec 30, 2011 8:02 pm

Does anybody else use this? I like it so far, but I'm wondering how well (exact) the hiding coordinates are. Also, the cache I hid with it doesnt appear on the OC website?

1. My understanding is that the iPhone doesn't give very reliable coordinates. I've generally though that my Droid2 isn't too bad, but hand-held GPS units (properly used) are far preferred for placing caches.

2. If you hid a cache with the Garmin OpenCaching app, it won't show up here, we are not affiliated with Garmin (and predate their use of the name "OpenCaching"). This site is part of a worldwide OpenCaching network.

3. Try checking out the Geocaching Buddy 4 OC in the App Store.
