Reviews From google play store

This addon has gone from being a backup caching app (mostly because of the static map ability of locus) to being a primary tool. The proximity alert is awesome and means you can enjoy the scenery more while hiking not worrying about missing caches.

Great addon for Locus, really usefull, thanks!

Love the extra extensions

Use with Locus maps for Geocaching. Nice one dev's!

I tried this but it just won't let me log in to my geocaching account so is useless. It's a shame as the only reason I got locus map was for caching

Usefull app

Gave up. Uninstalled. Kept asking me to validate my email address after setting up the account.. Done so 5 times.

GC for locus doesn't download listing data for caches anymore ? I have caches downloaded maybe 3 months ago and there are basic info ,LISTING, waypoints ... but now I can't download listing it OK ?

I just paid the upgrade fee to Locus Pro, and now this add-on won't open the live map. It gives me an error message stating I need to set some permissions in Locus Pro. I did, several times, but I still get the same message. Not happy!


I am very satisfied, but for last week, I haven't been able to see caches on the map, just a few ones in certain area, the other ones don't appear at all. How can I fix it, pls?

Why I need gps position for search now? In older version was enough move map to search position...


Does the basics, long winded approach.

This app has a bit of a learning curve, but it's worth it! Once I familiarized myself with it I never went back to any other GPS app. And the plugins are awesome!

I paid for the pro version and this app allowes me only to download 3 caches each 24h. Disappointing.. :(

Great for geocaching. Locus makes geocaching without internet smooth and easy. With internet access it is even better.

The best app for android

Geocaching for Locus is an excellent addition to the Locus package. The authors for Locus and G4L are excellent and quite responsive.

Not showing any cashes on the map even after enabling periodic updates in locus.

A great add-on for a great app.

Previous version worked fine...this one just gives me a no network error on three devices all apps that use data work so its this app that has issues....please fix

Sorry guys, but you are unfair to the developer if you want to judge him for the Groundspeak politics. You are crying on the wrong grave!

After the update that requires premium gc account the app is not worth installing. Groundpeak should find other ways to monetize gc.

Platit ???

I think this app is better than the official geocaching app by groundspeak. Please add the function to upload all recent logs at once! I don't know why everybody is complaining because the app is not the reason why you can only download 4 gc in an hour. Everybody wants everything for free. Thats bullshit. A membership for such a geat game is only 30 bucks a year, come on guys ...

It is totally unacceptable to force us to buy premium accounts . We make this game, not GS so why do we have to pay for a game made by me,you,my friends, your friends and so on? Please remove the use of GS api and let it work like before, or give us the option whether to use or not gs API. Thx

Maaan. What is this? Until now, I could download caches to my device... Nowthere are 3 caches? This really sucks! 1 star for that stupid oficial plugin

Please let us use the old way of downloading.. 3 caches per day for regular user is a joke.

Excellent add-on for geocaching

... Now it's useless. Do not upgrade if you don't have GC premium account!!

I use this addon app with locus pro exclusively for my geocaching. It does everything I want. I even converted my nook color to an android device just to use these apps. Keep up the good work.

Uninstalled because it doesn't work anymore.

Keeps force closing

Great for on the fly or a quick update

Remove the premium...

Htc my touch 4g

Works great. Thank you. Would be great to log also trackables together with cache log.

does not login at all. So this app is totally useless. c:geo is a far better app.

The last update fixed my login problem on Galaxy Tablet. Thanks!

new update works perfectly

New update keeps force closing, unusable. Old version was 5 stars. HTC Incredible

Force closes soon after loading... Unable to use this app anymore, unfortunate, this was a great tool for geo caching

Crashes immediately.

In combination with locus this is unbeatable equipment for every geocacher. Thanx for this plugin! P.S. I don't know if it is technically possible but it would be great if the pictures in listings were downloaded too.

This combined with Locus make one hell of a paperless Geocaching tool.

I can't find a way to log trackables (visited, dropped off, etc) from within the app. If I could do that, this add-on would be the only thing I needed to geocache.

I REALLY appreciate Locus and dev's work but sorry, my accounts aren't for sharing. Only 1 star for this unfortunate update.

New version keeps crashing, reinstalled old version.

Can't imagine geocaching without it. Updates keep making it better.

Now with live map... now locus is the perfect tool for geocaching

Why full access to my Accounts?

Absolutely great together with Locus. Keep up doing great work! :-)


just needs a few finishing touches

Decoding hints (like gcc - geocache calculator) would really make this the one-stop addon, along with camera/coords for proof logging.

This is the ultimate app for hardcore geo nerds. Had completely replaced c:geo for my everyday caching needs. Props go to the devs.

Love it

Great app. Note if clear your memory cache or use a reboot app it will delete your downloads.

Triangulation of the more accurate position of a cache is very easy with this add-on.

Worked 2 or 3 times then kept saying loading geocaches and then nothing would show on map. Tried clearing data, uninstall, install and no change.

Best Locus addon yet. Beta version showing only unfounded is perfect. Only need better access from Locus.

Swietny program!

With filtering option this addon became excellent

Completely unintuitive. I must be missing something. Can't seem to save geocaches OFFLINE for later use with satelite gps. It won't let you past the download screen without the wireless connection once you are out in the field. The caches I did download while connected are not accesible via the convoluted interface. Deleted locus and downloaded c:geo instead and it was like a breath of fresh air... A much simpler interface and I was Geocaching offline within 15 minutes. Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0.

Geocaching is supposed to be a fun free hobby, not a way to profit off people. Douche bags

You can't use it unless you download locas ..... rubbish not worth waisting your time !!!!!!!!

Recently installed and crashed each time I tried to open

Needs you to log on to use the app and it always says your password or user name is wrong

Last tile for promoting Locus to perfect geocaching tool

English please!






Very good
