Default New Zealand GPS

Please Login to Remove!

G'day, new here and need some help.

I've been reading various articles around making GPS work. I can get my 8310 to give me my GPS location, but what I'd like is something to help me track down Geocaches. Someone suggested that there were some commercial products out there, but then went on to suggest making your own.

Can anyone tell me which of the commercial GPS programs might be good for helping me go Geocaching? Don't really need road maps b/c NZ is quite small.

Cheers and Merry Christmas

As I understand it, there really aren't any good apps for geocaching. If that's changed, someone may correct me.

Trimble Outdoors / Geocache navigator looks to be a good option..

BlackBerry Applications - Trimble Outdoors

Cost of $6 a month or $40 a year, you should ask for a trial and see how it works in New Zealand.
