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!

Nice Nice app. I don't do geocacheing but I use Locus Map a lot for outdoor navigation and it works ok. Also works with maverick or any app that can export coordinates in decimal degree format (even text editor). Direction is a little bit tricky because it uses gps based bearings i think. The new pebble update opens up the magnetometer of the pebble and would be more useful for this app. I would give this 5 stars if this was implemented.

It works most of the time Sometimes the pebble fails to update the arrow correctly and the distance to the object but I'm sure that's not a fault of the pebble but of my phone I'd imagine that there is no proper GPS updating on the phone after a little while. Thank you for this awesome app and have a nice day

Companion App ...is called "Geocaching app". It would be helpful if that were specified more clearly so I didn't have to waste so much time searching for it.

Almost perfect This is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I have noticed however that when you first set it to navigate, it says 'no GPS'. The phone had good GPS all day, it said this between caches all the time however. I suspect it says that until you move far enough for it to update. Perhaps a better message would be 'awaiting movement' or something similar. Other than that. This is ideal. Really easy to use. Clear and easy to read. Attached the pebble to bike handlebars and spent the morning caching. Thanks.

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. ..
