Just a quick question, I now have a blackberry and was wondering if there are any applications out there for caching that I can use with the device. Any and all suggetions are welcome. Thanks. :smile:

I use Cacheberry and like it....15 bucks, you can dang near cache with just your phone. GPS is a bit slower than you'd like, but it'll get you there. If nothing else, keep feeding it PQs for your area, and you will ALWAYS be cache ready!

Looks good, but I dont have the right version. How do I go about getting the right version? It also looks like I need a sd card and maybe a few other things, LOL! Thanks for the info!

definitely get the SD card. you can't load aps on it (don't ask, I don't know why) but you'll want it for storage of GPX files.

you may need to upgrade your OS on the blackberry. You can do that through the Blackberry Desktop Manager.

I use an external bluetooth GPS when caching with my blackberry. I have US Cellular and their GPS function is pretty much next to nothing. So I use the Bluetooth puck. Works like a dream.
