Any Geocachers out there?

Post by geofactotem » Wed Feb 09, 2022 4:46 pm

Hi,
I am a geocacher myself and think this is an ideal app for geocaching and other activities as well of course. If you are a geocacher please reply even if it is just "Hi" to gauge how much interest there is.

However I have been working with AlpineQuest to enhance the geocaching experience. Basically you need to use GSAK and for the moment be an AlpineQuest beta tester.
I have provided code and instructions so that caches are shown on the map with icons as per the GSAK icons so that a multi looks like a multi for example. The children, stages, trailheads etc also have their own icon. A short tap on the geocache/waypoint/placemark shows optional essential information whilst a long tap gives further information.

Whilst I have developed and tested this myself at has to be at your risk. (It can easily be reversed). If you are interested message me and I will send you the help notes and files.

Find it hard to believe that I am the only geocacher using AQ. Maybe no-one else wants to own up.
Armed with what I have learned since February I had a full day caching yesterday and AQ coped excellently with everything. Concurrent Multi's, Final location, projected waypoint, the lot. My iphone carrying companion was well impressed with the long-press map clean feature. And it is far easier to use than my Garmin gpsmap.

A couple of tweaks to stop Francois getting bored would be nice, but honestly Francois grateful thanks for a really fantastic app.
