The app seems nice but it won't stay logged in. It constantly asks to log in into my phone (using the browser, not the app which I already download an in which I am already logged). Is there a fix for this?

Developer Reply

Oh that's odd indeed. No idea why it logs you out all the time, that shouldn't happen. I'll try to investigate on this. Best regards, Wim

It does what it says, as a newbie to Geocache, I'm happy I do not have to keep my phone out and just explore/hunt, especially for those micro caches! The dev was very responsive when I reported having an issue (Garmin issue caused from an Alpha software build), I also payed for the topo maps more because of enjoying the app.

Ständig verliert die App die Berechtigung auf das Konto zuzugreifen. Nur drei Caches der Umgebung auswählbar und kein visuelles Routing sondern nur Richtung und Entfernung -> App ist unbrauchbar also eigentlich Minusstern

Hallo, es tut mir leid zu hören, dass Ihnen die App nicht gefällt. Ich gebe mein Bestes, um schöne Anwendungen zu erstellen. Normalerweise sollten Sie sich nicht jedes Mal anmelden müssen, daher bin ich mir nicht sicher, was für Sie los ist. Ich würde lieber das Formular „Entwickler kontaktieren“ verwenden, um mich um Hilfe zu bitten, als zunächst nur eine negative Bewertung zu schreiben. Die Anzahl der Geocaches in deiner Nähe hängt natürlich von den Daten von Geocaching.com selbst ab. Viele Grüße Wim

Leider absolut unbrauchbar. Zwar sucht die App Geocaches in der Nähe - angezeigt wird aber keiner, selbst wenn man unmittelbar vor einem Cache steht. Das kann mein Uralt-Navi besser!

Wat een super app. 3 jaar geleden mijn fenix 5s gekocht met de bedoeling om ermee te cachen. Helaas geen enkele app die het goed deed tot nu. Deze app doet het gewoon allemaal. Locatie, omschrijving, hints en voor mij heel belangrijk je kan erook mee loggen. Deze ochtend eens gaan testen en het was geweldig. Tot om de meter nauwkeurig. Dikke merci aan de makers van deze app

Moin, Ich hatte schon mal eine Bewertung geschrieben. Ich habe tatsächlich immer noch das Problem das mir angezeigt wird "IQ" wenn ich auf Navigieren gehe. Und leider ist das Problem immer noch da. Es funktioniert leider bei mir immer noch nicht. Ich habe eine Garmin Instinct 2 Solar Tactical. Vielleicht können Sie das Problem ja beheben. Vielen Dank. Gruß Rainer

This is a good geocaching app, delivering as promised, albeit within its limitations. It is very good that it can hide geocaches that I have already found when searching for nearby geocaches. What will still be needed is the ability to hide geocaches that I have placed as well. Other filters will also be useful but not as essential as hiding own geocaches. The other limitation of relying on live internet for the app to work will prevent caching with just the watch only. If I have to carry the phone with me, then I would just as well use the phone app to go geocaching. I appreciate there will still be occasions when you may want to put the phone away in a bag or backpack, and therefore just using the watch will be helpful then. But to be able to use the watch in offline mode will make this app that much more versatile. Many thanks and keep up with the good work.

Hi Henry, thank you so much for your extensive review. Happy you like the app. I'm working on an offline version, but this requires a bit of a rework of the application, so this takes some time ofcourse. Have a great day! Wim

Does the app need geocaching premium to work or it works with standard subscription?

Developer Reply
August 19, 2022, VAW.BE

It just works with standard Geocaching subscription. But if you want to actually see maps, you'll need to purchase this app (just a one-time purchase). Otherwise you can use it for free with no maps and compass navigation. Please let me know if you need further assistance, I’m happy to help! You can reach me through the Contact Developer form.

Hi I downloaded the app and installed it on my Garmin Vivoactive 3 watch today. I then purchased the maps. The geocaches show up fine, but the maps are to light to read. Any idea why? Feel free to email me at [email protected] Thank you! RB

Developer Reply

Hi! Thank you for your review and remarks about the maps. I'll investigate and see if it's possible to get more contrast on these. Have a great day, and happy Geocaching! Wim

Bonjour, malheureusement je ne reçois pas de notification de la part de Garmin connect pour identifier mon compte Geocaching.

Developer Reply
August 10, 2022, VAW.BE

Bonjour, essayez de redémarrer à la fois votre téléphone et votre montre, puis effectuez une synchronisation dans l'application Garmin Connect par la suite. Assurez-vous également que l'application Garmin Connect sur votre téléphone est autorisée à envoyer des notifications. Si vous semblez toujours avoir des problèmes, veuillez nous contacter via le formulaire de contact avec le développeur afin que je puisse mieux vous aider. Et si vous l'avez fait fonctionner, veuillez reconsidérer votre avis :) Je suis heureux de vous aider ! Cordialement, Wim

Hey you awesome developers, im a software developer from germany, and i know how hard it can get to satisfy everyone's needs. You guys did awesome work by creating this app. It's nice to use for nearby caches and it is very fun to use. Appreciate your work! The only thing i noticed which was a little bit annoying is, that the compass on my vivoactive 4 is not used properly. It feels like a "gps compass", where the arrow points only after a while in a direction. Do you even use the hardware compass built in? I see forearf to hear from you :) Greetings from Germany! :)

Developer Reply
July 12, 2022, VAW.BE

Hi Yannick, thanks for reaching out! That’s a very good question. I’ll need to do some more research on this topic. I wrote it that it should use a combination of both. It should also check the watch abilities to see what’s available and not. But maybe something’s going wrong there. I’ll double check that system. Thanks for letting me know! Appreciate that. Have a wonderful day! Wim

I was super excited to see this app available for my Fenix 7. After using it for a bit, I noticed that it would keep logging me out while in glance view. I contacted the developer with the problem, and they were very responsive. They had the issue corrected and an update posted within a day! After the update, I have had no issues, and it is working great!
