Location and nearest caches
Your location will be shown after GPS has a fix. Optionally you can choose a saved point from a filesystem, type coordinates
manually, or use address to get your location. On the next screen you see nearest caches sorted out by distance from the position. Two letters before cache name shows type of the cache (see table of cache types).
Details of the cache
After selecting one of these caches you'll have chance to read important data about the cache - full listing, decrypted hint, additional waypoints (if available) and last logs.
If you decide to find the cache it's time to click on Navigate & view. This Locify feature sends you KML file which you can use directly for navigation or saving on filesystem. Since Locify 0.8 you can show this point on map. You'll see information about cache type, terrain, difficulty, size and author.
When you are try to catch GPS signal - go to place when you can see the sky clearly. It's hard to catch the signal under the
buildings or in the forest.
When you use navigation - relay on a distance, not on a direction. Direction can be wrong while you standing or moving very slowly. Move quicker to get more accurate direction.
