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>

Ok So I'm a bit of a Cacher as is the family.Saw this and read the very MIXED reviews and thought I would see what the issues etc are.And to be fair to the Dev he's done a pretty damn good job.One of the issues I saw folks mentioning was coordinate issues and them being very wrong. Well I use C:Geo for my caching needs and it has a copy coordinate function so I just copied and pasted and hit the issue folks mentioned, but then I saw the problem C:Geo copies it like this N 52° 15.857' W 001° 12.877' which throws it off on the watch app, To resolve it you remove the commas so it looks like this N 52° 15.857 W 001° 12.877 Now all works as it should. As to the functionality of the widget well it is very basic but works as described. As I have said it is very limited and would love to be able to add more than 5 caches,10-15 being a good amount. Would also like too see ability to add a small note to each cache so you could have the hint display for instance.. But having said this the app does work and works well and whats more its free. Thanks to the Dev for this, And hope too see a few improvement.. But great work so far...

Coordinates are not changed in APK. Not working.

I was hooping that this widget would be helpfull geocaching, but when the widget keep on changeing back to the the original coordinates, the name you can change but that is not really helping

22 sierpnia 2021 | Wersja 1.5.3

Not very reliable on Fenix 6. The coordinates are reset to the default state after while. During our holiday it happened already for the 3rd time. The watch were not record during the time not updated. Why are the days not persistent?

13 lipca 2020 | Wersja 1.5.3

Is there an app out there that will sync with instead of having to manually type in the coords and information for each geocache?

25 czerwca 2020 | Wersja 1.2.9

Nice, but it would be nice to configure the Koordinates and Names bei Garmin Express or Garmin Connect for Copy and Paste and easyer writing. Thanks.

É uma boa ideia, mas no vivoactive 3 é muito difícil editar o nome ou as coordenadas.

29 marca 2020 | Wersja 1.2.9

S'avèrera très utile,a essayer en randonnée, idéalement avec une boussole montrant le nord ça serait formidable !

Thanks for the update :)

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

14 stycznia 2020 | Wersja 1.2.7

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).

24 sierpnia 2019 | Wersja 1.2.1

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

21 lipca 2019 | Wersja 1.1.0

Ein einstellbarer näherungsalarm wäre gut.

6 lipca 2019 | Wersja 1.1.0

Magnifiquement efficace...

20 czerwca 2019 | Wersja 1.1.0

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.

20 czerwca 2019 | Wersja 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.

12 czerwca 2019 | Wersja 1.0.4

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