Geocaching with NavigatorFree
  • I'm using NavigatorFree for Geocaching. Therefore it is necessary to transfer and show the Caches on NavigatorFree.
    As source of the cache-data CacheWolf is a good source. The datas can be extorted in a gpx-file and later imported with diggerQt.
    The template for export is listed below. Everybody interested can use it.
    Hope it helps.

  • Hi,
    Where I can found diggerqt ?

    mowenta :)
  • Hello,
    here the actual link as shown in this forum.

  • thanks a lot
  • Is there a way of exporting favourites.
    I have found the file on my device - favourites.xml but do not recognise the format.
    e.g. Centre of Crewe Park entry is 
    "crewepark" lat="191149105" lon="8886176"/>
    how do these relate to 53.09695, -2.46851

  • our co-ordinate system is in miliseconds - to translate to decimal degrees simply devide by 3600000
  • Many thanks.
    It's so easy when you know !!
