GeoSphere is an iPhone application that supports GCA geocaches and GPX files.

Adding GCA Caches to GeoSphere

Option 1

It is possible to set up bookmarks that make it easier to load caches on a regular basis.

To add a bookmark:

  • Go to Data tab
  • If you are not already on the Bookmarks list, tap the "Book" icon in the top left corner
  • Tap the "Edit" icon in the top right corner
  • Select "Add Bookmark"
  • Enter a Name for the Bookmark (eg. "GCA Vic Caches")
  • Enter a URL (eg. http://geocaching.com.au/caches/gca/au/vic.gpx )
  • Tap Save

Once the bookmark is added, you can select it and it will download the GPX file, and then proceed as per other GPX files.

Option 2

Add a bookmark for a page, rather than a direct GPX link. For example, you can add a bookmark to: http://geocaching.com.au/my/query/ which will bring up your list of GCA queries. From there, tap the GPX link (you may need to zoom in) for the query you wish to add to Geosphere, and proceed as normal after that.
