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

Good but no one uses it. I live in orange county and theres lots of caches on groundspeak. All the ones here are mostly all old abandoned and never logged. There were a couple that were also on gc but most havent ever seen a log. I've listed a couple in my area for now but don't think anyone would really go get em. Still though I wizh people would use this as groundspeak is a rip off and sucks.

ok app, no caches Site is largely abandoned by Garmin. The app itself is ok, but with no caches backing it and very little interest in supporting Garmin's site, this really isn't worth while.

Didn't show caches that are around me (there are like 50 caches within 8 miles from me)

Great App Wish that more people would use opencaching. For those of you that aren't aware, geocaching is an ACTIVITY not a website or another app, even though that's what they call it. Geocaching has been around longer than your phone or even before gps handheld units and the other site (which I do also use) did not invent it and does not hold any type of trademark on geocaching. Also, when it gives you the openauth page saying that it couldn't be found... Click the link and you'll be signed in.

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