    Doesn't show caches in my neighborhood that I know are there. This app needs data via wifi or network. This is unacceptable. Uninstalling. Sorry Garmin your app stinks. I use my 60Cx instead.

    GC is way too overpriced while almost all of it is voluntarily done by the community. It's time to move to Opencaching!

    I know this is for opencaches only, but opencaches simply aren't in my area. By contrast, there are literally hundreds of the competitions caches in close radius. Obviously the masses have spoken, making this app useless. Uninstalling.

    I love this app but the site doesn't show as many caches in my area as the other one. In fact, nothing shows up close by. So sad I have to delete. I wish this app worked with other geocaching sites.

    Whilst there may not be many users, this app was really easy to use, great for beginners.

    We need to use this service more. Free service no monthly or annual charges.
