GeoFormel is a Geocaching tool specifically developed for multicaches. It contains a PC program and an Android app.
Every geocacher knows the problem of multi-caches. You get nearer stage by stage, solving problems and entering the results by use of a predefined formula in order to calculate the next coordinates.
In most cases, one used to print out the description from the Geocaching website and to calculate with a pencil on a piece of paper. After some probably made miscalculations one got finally the right coordinates.
Then, these coordinates had to be entered into the GPS device in order to make the navigation to the next stage possible.
With this tool you can copy the Geocaching formulas (e.g. N50.32. (A - B) CD ) by cut & paste directly from the multi-cache description into the PC component and then on the memory card of your Android phone. There you import the formulas and they are at once available. You don’t have to bother any more with typing in data or calculating formulas with paper and pencil. You just have to enter the results of the single tasks and the Geocaching tool shows you at once the calculated coordinates. After having fed in all data of a task for a North/South and East/West coordinate the Android app displays a button by which you can navigate to the next destination.
You can use GoogleMaps online or OpenStreetMap offline maps.
