What's New

- After adding a cache to the main (offline) list, the search details screen now returns to the search results instead of the main screen. Making it much easier to add multiple caches from the search results.

- Add caches using one of your bookmarklists on geocaching.com.

- Refresh all non-found and non-write protected caches by re-downloading them and merging the info (refresh button on the main list screen).

- New URL scheme gcbuddy://add/caches?codes=GC12345,OC12345 etc. Will Add/Refresh all these caches.

- When logging a cache with status "found" the internal found status of this cache is also set to found (if it wasn't already).

If you like these enhancements, leave a 5 star review. This will motivate me to keep enhancing GCBuddy!

App Description

The ultimate tool for the serious geocacher when solving multi-caches, powered by Geocaching Live. This buddy app will remember every clue found and will calculate any derived clue or new waypoint for you. Waypoints can be formulas or projections. These and the final cache formula will be evaluated the moment all clues are found and entered. The app can record your parking spot so you'll be able to return to your car after finding the cache.

SEE BEFORE YOU BUY: To get a better idea of the functionality, read the Quick Start Guide at the support website www.gcbuddy.com
