Attention all geocaching.com users!! New version with new clean look.
The latest version of Cache Radar dedicated for those users who have a geocaching.com account – install it on your home screen. It dynamically updates itself to show you a list of all caches within a certain radius of your current location.
NB This is an appWidget which has to be placed on your home screen to work. It does not appear in the list of applications to run.
- location determined by network and/or gps – location services must be on.
- Shows latitude and longitude of current position if available
- Based on your current position will show you a list of caches nearest to you within a certain search radius. (needs a data connection – either network or wifi)
- auto detect of location changes can be switched on/off
- manual refresh facility will update location and refresh cache list
- User preferences for:
- decide on units of distance to be used
- search distance for cache locations
- display format of location co-ordinates
- filter searches
- hide your own caches
- hide disabled caches
- hide caches already found
- Clicking on a cache in the list will show the web page from geocaching.com for the selected cache
These are the permissions we require when you install this widget:
- fine (gps)
- coarse (network based)
- full internet access
What data do we hold and why?
We store the following information within the app widget itself – it is not held anywhere else:
- geocaching.com user name – this is after you have logged in and authorised our application for use with your data held in geocaching.com
- co-ordinates of last location found
We hold no other personal information or data.
In the case of an application crash we collect debugging information with respect to the cause of the crash. This include a stack trace of the application, the configuration details you have set up for Cache Radar Mk II (including your geocaching.com user name and last position co-ordinates), and general details of the device you are using eg make, model, android version etc. No personal information is collected.
This information is transmitted to a remote database where we can study the causes of failures and look to improve Cache Radar MkII
Within the Cache Radar Mk II application we do NOT use :
- Any analytics data or tools
- Ad serving
As Cache Radar MkII does not hold any personal data we have nothing to share, and we believe that having no personal data held by us is quite an effective data security policy.
