Instant Adventure – Anywhere
Use the “Find Nearby Geocaches” button to locate geocaches near your current location. Odds are you can reach the nearest geocache in less than 10 minutes.
Track your progress to the cache on a suite of interactive maps or switch to the preferred explorer method of a compass arrow and watch the distance countdown until your geocache discovery.
Once you find the geocache – log your “Found it!” to earn a smiley, take and upload pictures, post a note, and see your “Found it!” count rise on your home screen.
Setup for Geocaching Success
Beginner geocachers search for traditional, regular sized geocaches rated Difficulty 1/Terrain 1. Check logs to make ensure the cache has been found recently.
Browse a photo gallery for each geocache, review attributes like “Recommended for Kids” or “Takes less than an hour,” and an option to view the geocache page on Geocaching.com without leaving the app.
Save geocache listings, including maps and pictures for quick retrieval and offline use.
Advanced search options allows filtering of geocaches by difficulty, terrain, location, cache type, keywords, Premium Caches (Premium Member feature) and excluding your finds or your friend’s finds.
Full Trackable integration – access and explore one of the most engaging parts of geocaching. Geocachers moves Trackables from geocache to geocache on specific missions. Log and search for their unique codes.
Access Pocket Queries (saved searches with up to 500 results) – A Geocaching.com Premium Member only feature.

・ The buttons for navigating to geocaches and posting logs—the two most-used actions—are now front and center.
・ We added easy-to-understand new icons.
・ Revised language helps eliminate confusion between saving and sending logs.
・ Log types are now shown in the title bar.
We also streamlined a few things:
・ Additional features have been grouped together in their own menu in the top-right corner.
・ The new “Found it!” button includes a drop-down menu for other log types.
And, of course, no release would be complete without a few bug fixes to help smooth the search for your next geocache.
