GC Assistant


GC Assistant is a very simple widget for continual navigation to the chosen target (especially for geocaching). Because GC Assistant is a widget, you can use it during any activity (e.g. run, bike etc.). And that is why this widget is a good helper for every running geocacher without mobile phone. You can store up to 5 geocaches. Then choose one of these and run/bike to find it. </p><p></p><p></p>

Nicht zur Vivoactiv kompatibel, da für die Einstellung eine hoch/runter Taste gebraucht wird, die es nicht gibt. Schade

The widget does not require UP/DOWN buttons. These buttons are only needed to install/choose widget on Forerunner watch. If you want to install/use widget on Vivoactive, please, follow the instructions in your watch manual.

Halvt omöjligt att få in andra cacher

Nothing, GC is about 600 m from me and app shows 1450,6 km from me.

I checked the application behavior on all continents. I'm afraid you've entered the wrong coordinates. Please check that your coordinates are correct.

I couldn't enter a 6 into the 3rd number space for the lattitude. So I couldn't enter the coordinates I wanted hence couldn't use the app to get there at all.

You should enter geocache coordinates in degrees-minutes-seconds format (see Third number must be from 0 to 5 (because this is first digit of minutes 00-59).

Inputting the name and the coordinates is horrible on the watch screen! I would give this five stars if names and coordinates could be sent from the phone to the watch. For example, from the Garmin Connect app.

Super mit dem einstellbaren Näherungsalarm. Funktioniert einwandfrei. Danke

July 21, 2019 | Version 1.1.0

Ein einstellbarer näherungsalarm wäre gut.

July 6, 2019 | Version 1.1.0

Magnifiquement efficace...

Thanks for update. Works great. Off course, thats an widget and can‘t stay „always on“. ALL widgets don‘t stay. After a certain time, they are switching back.

June 20, 2019 | Version 1.1.0

When the widget is used, the screen changes to the clock screen after a certain period of time. I would like the screen to stay fixed until the destination destination.

Widgets will timeout and automatically shutdown after a device specific period of inactivity. (official information from Garmin company) But when you show GC Assistent widget while an activity (run, bike,...) is in progress, our widget will be displayed permanently.

Thanks for update. Works at fenix 5x! Could you please ad option to edit geocache name - instead of having fixed names „Geocache1 , Geocache2...

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
