DroidX geocaching app

I found an app for the DroidX at  They had an advertisement for Groundspeak's Geocaching for Android Application, which showed there is an app.  I clicked on the ad, and that brought me to the Groundspeak website.  I read the reviews, which said the app is very good, it costs $9.99, and you have to be sure your Droid's GPS is "on." The default is "off."  These are some screen shots from the Groundspeak website:

I went to the "market" app on my phone, searched for geocache and the first one in the list is the Groundspeak one, and I bought it.  I figured it was worth trying for so little cost, when the hand held GPS units are $300 to $400.  And it did have very good reviews. 

When I try it out, I'll let you know how I like it, but just going into it a little bit, it showed me the nearyby Geocaches, just like on the website, and other things.

I also saw this book, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Geocaching on line - it looks like the best price is at

Whenever I start something new, I always look for books to read about the subject.  I'll probably get this one when I get into geocaching more. 

 BTW, I was toooooo lazy today to leave the house.  The weather is erratic and Katie and I snuggled, and I ate Cheerios, strawberries, grapes and jelly beans, and played "computer" all day.  So I didn't check out my new geocache app. But I will, I will.  (I can be so lazy...)

I've been reading comments from bloggers on other blogs, and everyone seems really happy with their DroidX.  So I 'm glad that's the one I chose.  It's been three years since I've gotten a new phone--you can imagine the learning curve I've got.   I'm trying out some of the apps that are mentioned.   The grocery one I'm going to look up - they said no more grocery lists. That sounds good to me! 

So, from me and Katie on a lazy, erratic Sunday, have a nice day, everyone! : )
