With GA cacher you are only able to view caches on the map list or if you tap on Nearby you'll get what's around you. If you want a more specific search youll need to go onto the Geocaching Australia web site.
Your smart phone gps should be on by default but you can check that location is on by swiping down to see the toolbar. There should be am icon that says location. This needs to be on if you are going to navigate with your phone. . You can also make navigation more acurate by going into your settings finding location mode and making site Gps wifi and hetwork is checked. This will give you the highest accuracy but will also use more power.
