With browser based geolocation it's almost impossible to get a reliable enough fix to use as a navigation tool.
The onluy information the browser can provide back to the site is a single lat/lon pair, nothing usefull like heading etc.
I will show where the device THINKS you are on the map, you'll be surprised how coare the position fix is most of the time. Sometimes not even in the same suburb! (To speed up positional fixed some browsers only use the cell phone tower location, and in country areas they can be kilometeres away!!!!)
You will be able to grab the nearest caches in GPX form on your mobile device to load into a caching/navigation app, also the back end stuff I've written to do this will form part of our API that other app providers will be able to use in dedicated caching/nav apps.
