Mobicaching

Mobicaching is Symbian application created to make geocaching easier. It allows you to download info about geocaches near you and save it into your device’s memory, so you won’t need to maintain network connection while hunting.

Here are few main features:
- online map with tree views – streets, terrain and satellite
- OpenStreetMap support with tile caching
- downloading and saving geocaches with their images and logs from:
- OpenCaching.de
- OpenCaching.nl
- OpenCaching.pl
- OpenCaching.org.uk
- OpenCaching.us, and
- OpenCaching.com
- updating all geocaches you keep on your device just by two clicks
- saving geocache’s location as landmark in Nokia Maps
- searching (currently only for geocaches, not places on map)

There are also few features missing:
- logging to geocache
- searching for places on map
- maybe more geocaching servers

Here are few screenshots:

Download (available in Nokia Store for S60 5th Edition and Symbian^3):
- full version here
- trial version here

Known issues:
- there are extra options in menu while reading geocache’s description (editing options and writing language) – they come from Symbian API and I am unable to remove them (not only I have such problem)
- geocache description is rewinded while opening menu

If you have any problem with application, please open Mobicaching, open Options menu and select Help – maybe there is an answer you are looking for. It not – mail me or post a comment here.

    I downloaded the trial version, but it appears that there is no geocache data for my part of the world, New Zealand. There appears to be no way to enter any geocaches manually. Is there any way to load data for this part of the world, is this app only useful in the US and Europe?

      Mobicaching is currently limited to NL, PL, ORG.UK, US OpenCaching Nodes and to OpenCaching.com, but I am going to add gpx import feature soon, so there will be possibility to add geocaches outside these sources.

    Is there any chance to use this great app with geocaching.com server?

      Mobicaching does not support geocaching.com directly for now. You may download gpx file from geocaching.com, then open database from Mobicaching’s main menu and import the file.

    Witam, są jakieś problemy z aplikacją ostatnio? Od paru dni aplikacja nie wyświetla mi skrzynek (oprócz tych zapisanych), wszystko ziała, pozycjonuje itp, ale skrzynek nie wyświetla. W przypadku skrzynek zapisanych nie da się ściągnąć logów ani zdjęć? szczerze mówiąc nie mam zielonego pojęcia co się stało. Będę wdzięczny za szybką odpowiedź. Pozdrawiam

      Aplikacja działa, ale serwer opencaching.org.uk padł. Jeśli jest włączony w ustawieniach, Mobicaching próbuje pobierać z niego dane i nie otrzymuje żadnej odpowiedzi przez długi czas. Polecam po prostu go odznaczyć.
