    Which app are you using? I have a Garmin Oregon 450, loaded with BRMB and a bunch of caches, but it hasn't worked properly since the last time I plugged it into my pos PC to load more caches. I would like to try it with my iPhone and cut PC and garmin device out of the picture.

    You don't need cel phone service for the App to work if you have a premium member account on Geocaching.com you can do a pocket query and save it to your saved list. Then your phone will work with just the built in GPSR.



    This App when off line is not as practical as using the Oregon 450, it's a great unit but have you done any updates on it?

    yup, the app is a great way to get into it without investing in a handheld GPS. worth paying the money for the full version

    So do I.
    I just download the Geocache info from the Geocashe Website to my GPS via USB. All the info gets downloaded. No need to write or manually punch in the coordinates. Very slick and easy!
    We found a bunch on our trip 2 weeks ago.

    Even better if you have a premium account, or know someone who does, as you can then produce a pocket query.

    A pocket Query is a zipped file containing as many as 1,000 different geocaches and all the published information pertaining to each one.

    There is a number of different filters when crating this file, Terrain, difficulty, size, last found, attributes, many many more.

    Nice!

    I see a few of my caching friends from the Kootenays have been there!

    Maybe I'll get that way next year.

    My wife and I do this whenever we get some time. We love the whole concept of Geocaching and how it gets you out to great little locations you wouldn't have known existed otherwise.

    We use a handheld Garmin 60csx. Pretty good little unit!
