Geocache placer is a tool for Geocachers, who wants to place their own Geocache, with a very precise position.

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

Use
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.

    The app works ok but the UI could use some work. I was going to purchase the ad free option but it is too pricey. Edit: No worries, GPS Averaging app works just as well for my purposes and the ad free option is more affordable, $1.97 vs $5.07. Uninstalled.

    This app keeps telling me im located off the coast of Nigeria. I am not located off the coast of Nigeria. Great idea though, I'll try it out again later after it gets updated.

    Great to confirm gps location when placing a cache - love how it checks all the available satellites, and you can set it to pause between pinging them :)

    It's a great idea. I only had one problem. When placing a cache in the woods the coordinates are about 65 feet off. Idk what happened but I had to get the GPS and fix it.

    This has now taken place of my GPS for placing caches . I would love an add free app as this is hard on battery when out of cell service range.
