I have a crackberry. I would much rather have an iPhone but that won't happen for a while. (it's long story). I'm stuck with it. What is the best way to cache with a blackberry. Right now I get notifications on it but I have to open the email,open the cache page (after I put my password in AGAIN) and finally get the coords which I then put into my GPSr.... Please tell me there is an easier way to cache with my crackberry.

Hi Tom,

Both RVTraveller and I have been using our Blackberries with the Cacheberry application in conjunction with our Garmin Vista C GPS'rs for the past couple of years. Basically we use Cacheberry to get cache information as the Vista C only provides coordinates and limited info about the cache (name or hint etc when using GSAK). Yes it means two devices working but it beats paper caching.

I'm now on my second Blackberry as they don't stand up well to the wet coast environment Snorkel and so I decided to get Robyn a Oregon 500 with Canada Topo for Christmas. Now she has all the data (and loves it and me too Laughing ) that we need and my Blackberry can be "saved" for texting, call a geo-friend etc if we get really stuck at GZ. Jester

I have the Oregon 300 that, as everyone knows, lets me download 1000 caches at once (on the 'puter of course)... Last night I was nailing down some FTFs. Smack YES Magicman65 was out of town:jester: while I was in the bush, my Crackberry alerted me to 3 more caches in the area. I found it a real hassle to get the lat and long out of the email... Just hoping to figure a quicker/easier way to do it.

Thanx everyone for pointing me towards CacheSense...
Here is exactly what I was looking for:
"Open from the Web: You can download individual caches by browsing to the cache web page on geocaching.com and clicking the “GPX Exchange File” button, the cache will be automatically loaded into CacheSense. This function is especially useful when you receive alert emails from geocaching.com"

I wanted something to work with my notifications. If you want an FTF around here, every minute counts :anibad:
