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. )
  • 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.
