Is it just me, or are East and West mixed up on on the search results page?

Doesn't work on the N95 with the standard browser (no geolocation supported), however, it does work with Opera Mobile 10.1 beta 2.
Looks promising. Now when I out somewhere unexpected, I'll be able to find out if there are any GCA caches around.
Great work.

Logs, logging, ratings etc will all eventually be on this.

I'll be adding type filters and whatnot too at some point.

works on my Legend Android 2.2, but one other question , where did the Text search box go?
ie the automatic search by geo-location seems to work ok but what if I want to look for a specific cache?
NB I guess its still in beta so I assume the text and my finds etc will come late.
Good stuff !!
BTW thanks I should have used this yesterday when searching for a gnome...

further footnote is it possible to launch Google Maps app from that webpage?

The old site is still at http://mobile.geocaching.com.au nothing has changed on that front (nor will it)

You can launch a map from the caches listing by clicking on the Map button.

It will not launch the Android Google Map app as this is a webpage, not an app.

Garmin-Asus A50 nuviphone on Android 1.6 works with Opera Mobile 10.1 (beta?), the default browser doesn't work but I'm trying to find the smallest browser that does. Dolphin / Dolphin-Mini both no-go as of yesterday.

Dolphin HD may work but needs Android 2.x

Cheers.

Hmm, is this borked at the moment? I fired it up again, but now I just get a page with "Geocaching Australia Mobile" at the top - previously there was a button to go to the listings, now it's just blank...

Working for me (albeit in firefox). The search button doesn't appear until geolocation has determined your location, so I'd check that that's working your end first.

Ah yep, thanks for that. Somehow my option to allow access to location data had been disabled. I turned it back on, and all is good again!

Hi there, This works with my G3 iphone. Is it only supposed to show GCA caches?
but once I click on one cache to view details I am unable (or don't know how) to get back to the list.
