What is BasicGPS ?

BasicGPS is software application designed primarily for Geocaching, and runs on Phones and PDAs equipped with the Windows Mobile 5.0/6.0/6.1 'PocketPC' Operating System.

One of the main features of BasicGPS is that the application actually speaks to you, providing a range and bearing to the cache site. This is particularly useful in areas of 'high muggle activity'. You can put the phone in your pocket, use headphones, and the voice will guide you to the cache site!

As the application is free to use, all that we ask in return is that you provide us with feedback on the software, together with details of any issues you may come across while using the application. (Please include your PDA make/model and OS version) We fully intend to provide regular updates, bug fixes and enhancements to the application. So please help us develop and extend the functionality of BasicGPS, and you'll get the benefits for free!

The philosophy behind the design of BasicGPS is 'Keep it Simple' - In just 8 Screens it has everything you need for Geocaching using your Windows Mobile Device.
