Takes 5MB+ of space and won't install to SD. Otherwise OK.

No Good Does not show caches in my area. No good till you get that fixed. Like the looks of it though.

Not For Me Doesn't show caches in my neighborhood that I know are there. This app needs data via wifi or network. This is unacceptable. Uninstalling. Sorry Garmin your app stinks. I use my 60Cx instead.

People should use this more GC is way too overpriced while almost all of it is voluntarily done by the community. It's time to move to Opencaching!

No caches in my area. I know this is for opencaches only, but opencaches simply aren't in my area. By contrast, there are literally hundreds of the competitions caches in close radius. Obviously the masses have spoken, making this app useless. Uninstalling.

Only one problem I love this app but the site doesn't show as many caches in my area as the other one. In fact, nothing shows up close by. So sad I have to delete. I wish this app worked with other geocaching sites.
