I fixed my problem guys thanks for helping.. I also posted a question o the groundspeak forum also and got the answer i needed..

I looked at my google maps on my phone and it was way off, so i updated the google maps and then checked my postion again and bingo it was on point. Then I opened the groundspeak caching app and checked the distance to the cache I placed by my house and bingo it was very close to what my computer said so im all go to cache thanks for the help everyone.. Very Happy Smile Laughing wink

Can anyone tell me how to calibrate the compass for either the C:geo or the Groundspeak caching app please..

I checked how accurate both apps were and they were both off I place cache down the road from my house and I pulled that cache up on both apps and the groundspeak app sait it was .58 miles from my house with a accuracy of 2.33 miles theres no thats right my oregon 550 says its 250ft from my house. and the c:geo app says its .60 miles. well I guess that kinda god that there close but yeah. Even when I walked to the cache the distance didnt even moveit stayed the same on both apps. HELP.

Im glad I dont have this problem with my blackberry trimble app I love that app


All 3 GPS units I have (I think), phone included whether I'm in an app or not, prompt me to wave it in a figure 8 pattern for a few passes with my arm extended. This has worked every time and if I'm having accuracy issues I give it a quick wave as well and let it settle back down.

Do you have to do this when you have the compass up or when can you do this. I dont have this problem with my blackberry Trimble app
