Hi Don, I’m in NSW North Coast too. We usually host events every few months where the locals get together and meet up but ever-changing NSW Health Orders have halted that for now.

I don’t use Geocube – I use a Garmin GPS mostly, but I have used an iPhone app called Cachly. You can import geocaches into the app, then use the phone as a GPS to find them. You need to create a query. This is a list of caches that are base on criteria that you select. You can specify what cache type, what location and a heap of other different options based on the type of caches you want to find. Good place to start is searching for Traditional Caches, close to home. Once you’re happy with your selection criteria, you can save the query and then export it. If you export it as a GPX file while using your phone you’ll be able to open it with Cachly, and import it into the app. From there you can use the app like you would a GPS unit.

If you need a hand or want some more specifics, drop me a line in the forum and I’ll be happy to help you out. There are some nice caches in our area.

Matt

Just to add to what mattyrx said, if you find GPX files aren’t working with Cachly then try downloading and importing your queries as ZIP files. This should work. The reason for this depends on what versions of Cachly and iOS you’re running.

G'day,
Bundaberg bloke here. I spend a lot of time outdoors and heard about geocaching on YouTube. Seems like a bit of fun searching for caches.

hi all.. newbie here NSW hills district. :P Looking for an activity that let's me escape the couch as I approach retirement and maybe get some exercise in the process. GC was suggested. Hopefully any age related medical and mobility issues will diminish over time so climbing ladders to trig points will not be in my inventory. Bit of a loner but would like to find out where I can get some finer basics. Such things as themes, gradings, difficulty ranking etc I guess will reveal themselves to me as delve deeper into the dragon's den.
