    I'm starting to get involved with geo caching and was hoping someone could suggest an app they like. The reviews on the store are very mixed. Some people think the free apps are as good as the pay ones but I wonder.

    I would like to be able to create my own cache with my Droid. I would also like to be able to enter Lat/Long coordinates to find caches. Finally I would like to be able to directly download all known caches in my area to my phone.

    Is there something that can do all these things? Thanks

    I use Backcountry Navigator for my geocaching. should do everything you need, and there is a trial version so you can check it out.

    C:geo is also a very good app. C Geo is free, I have used it for about 6 months now, they continue to make updates. I have been pretty pleased with it.

    Another vote for c:geo - geat app, live maps is fab. So easy to pop up if I have some spare time.

    be aware that groundspeak don't like it but it still seems to works fine. I think it violates some of their ts and cs, but not entirely clear.

    If you want to play by their rules (ie suck up to groundspeak lol) you could always buy there official app
