5820RE: [NUTS] iPhone
- Jul 23, 2009We have an iPhone and have had to use it since our GPS died and we had to send it in.The app we use is also the one from Groundspeak and we love it. It is easy to use and great forspur of the moment caching whereever you are. But you have to make sure you have a signal. Sometimes if you are in a place that you don't have cell service you are stuck, but if you have 3G coverageshould be good. And as medic208 stated use the "field note" option to post notes. It is really GREAT!Even if you just make notations as you go you don't have to post the comments but it gives you areminder of the cache so you can add on or elaborate when you go to post the log. Or you canpost the field note as is either way it is really handy. One thing we did notice is that the accuracyis about 50ft as to where a GPS can get you 20to30 so if you just use your geosenses it will getyou there but it may not bring you right on top of the cache. But that is the fun....searching! We are"treasure seekers" after all. =0) Anyway... hope the input helps and hope you enjoy using yournew toy!RedvoodooStephanie

Hey Y'all, greetings from NC. I would download the geocaching app from Groundspeak. As others have mentioned it's very easy to use, and I have found a couple of caches just from using the internal GPS within the iPhone.
I think the best part about this app is that you can quickly log the caches you find by using the field note option. I'll write a few words about the cache find while still in the area, and then when I log into GC.com later you can click on the field notes tab under your profile, and you're done!
The only problem I have noticed is that if you don't have 3G coverage, the program can be very slow, but this is true with alot of the apps.
