Map View[edit]

Navigation Map-4.3.png

The map will show a direct line from your current position to the cache location.

Note: The red line from your position to the target is optional and controlled by Settings.

If there are additional waypoints (e.g. parking, trail head, etc.) for the cache, then these will be displayed on the map view.

Additional waypoints can be selected as your target by tapping them on the screen. See below for the appearance of some waypoint types.

On the top right of the screen is the ••• action button which will allow you to select routing apps that are installed on your device, e.g. Apple maps, Google maps, etc. By selecting one of these apps you will be routed to the destination by the selected app.

On the top left of the screen is an arrow that, when tapped, will take you back to the Cache Details.

At the bottom right of the map are three buttons.

  • Map Options Icon: Tap to select a map provider (Apple Maps, Offline Maps, etc.).
  • Zoom: Tap to zoom the view in to the target pin. Tap again to show both the target and your current location.
  • Show Current Location: Tap to cycle through the map follow modes. The first tap will fill in the arrow and locks the map view to your current location. As you move, the map will move with you and remain centered on your current location. The orientation (rotation) of the map will not change. The second tap rotates the map to correspond with the direction you are traveling. You are in this mode when the arrow on the icon points up with a line coming out of the bottom. A third tap turns off follow modes, breaking the association between the map view and your current location. Continue tapping to cycle through the options.


Compass View[edit]

The compass view has a pointer that will point directly to the cache or selected waypoint. The distance and GPS accuracy is also shown. The compass view also has the ••• action button that can be selected as above.

Your Current Position (coordinates) and the position of the selected waypoint (Destination) are also displayed. 240px-Compass1-4.3.png


Caches can have associated waypoints marking useful locations like Parking, Trailhead, etc. They are all small red circles with a distinctive symbol enclosed. Here are some examples.
