    For the past year I have been using Geocache Navigator for Geocaching with my BB8330. It has been a great way to geocache but my subscription is up for renewal. Before I renew I would first like to know if anyone has been using any free or less expensive geocaching software with satisfacory success.

    I thought Geocache Navigator was a one-time fee. That's what the App World page says:
    FREE fully functional 7 day trial, just click “Get It Today“. After 7 days, you will be prompted to purchase for a one-time fee of $19.99.
    from here: BlackBerry App World - Geocache Navigator for Verizon

    Until a week or so ago, Geocache Navigator did not filter out Premium Member Only caches, which made it an even better deal. I noticed this weekend that they had corrected that bug. Now you'll have to pay Geocaching.com's annual membership to see PMO caches in Geocache Navigator.

    Hi Jeff

    I tried to download this version of Geocache Navigator but it requires v4.7 and the best I can do for my 8330 is v4.5

    Traxx is good for geocaching - it has a one time fee of $9.99. It has full support for GPX v1.1 files as well as manual waypoint entry and tons of other GPS functions. More info at traxxmobile.com or on App World appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/2682

    I use Geocache Navigator which is a one time fee from BlackBerry App World. I believe it's still on sale for $9.99.

    I also use BlackStar which is a great free app. You can create Pocket Queries on geocaching.com (PMs only), download the file onto your BlackBerry and then import it into BlackStar. It gives you waypoint details, hints etc. Works great. You can also show all caches on BlackBerry Maps. You can show one cache at a time on Google Maps. With both options you can get turn by turn directions right to the cache.

    The ability to load PQ and Routes onto BlackStar makes it worthwhile.
