By averaging many positions you will get a position with a +/- 2 meters / +/-6 ft.

The use is very simple, press start and wait for the first calculation of an average position. You can verify the result on the loaded map and if you are satisfied with the result, you can save it with the Share function. You can press run many times until you are satisfied with the position.

    I loved this app until recently, now I'm no longer able to drag and move the geocache. It just keeps going back to the original spot. I this seems odd, but it's the feature I loved and used most!! Please fix this!

    Used to place my first cache recently. Within 3 ft of actual GZ. Quickly obtains coords.

    Tracking 10 SAT's then pressing start it says GPS not activated and asks me to go to settings what's this all about programming obviously needs quite a bit of work to get it up to standard, uninstalled as it is a waste of memory.

    I've used other apps for placing my caches in the past and they weren't even close to how accurate this one is. Highly recommend.

    Love the ability to average as many readings as wanted and the ability to automatically email results! A perfect tool for cache hiding!
