This is an application that connect android navigational applications and Pebble watch!


Please do note that it's designed with Geocaching in mind, but it might also work for other uses. If you have suggestions, please email me! (There is a contact email under Additional information)


It then shows you distance and direction to the location on your Pebble watch! You must also install application to your pebble, then you can use c:geo/geocaching app/locus to select the location you want!

This app uses GPS position and calculates direction from it. It does not use Pebble's compass as it is not yet made accessible by the developers!

Really disappointed I must be the only one with problems as there is nothing but positive reviews, first of all the GPS takes forever to connect, and when it finally connects it doesn't even give me the proper directions froze at 341 meters and the arrow keeps telling me forward no matter which way I walk. Also this app would benefit from including cache hints and recent logs.... Overall unimpressed. ..

Great for bright suinlight Not only can you read the Pebble screen in bright sunlight, it saves your phone's battery as the screen is not running at 100% brightness. Really functional!

Great! It's nice that you can put the phone in the pocket and still know where you have to go. Also, you look much less suspicious than looking at the phone all the time :)
