I realise it's not entirely what you're looking for, but even a free Geocaching account allows you to bring up a list (or a map) of nearby caches just by going to geocaching.com/Play/Find a Geocache. If you click the search box, it'll bring up an option to find nearby caches, or find caches by location. You'd have to drag the data out of each one manually, but at least it might get you out there and caching while you find a more high tech approach
My understanding is that it is the hard way and they mainly scrape the Geocaching.com site.
I know that Groundspeak's API is not open and therefore unusable but I also know that there are Apps such as c:geo that are able to login as you and grab the local/search for caches.
How are they doing this? Is it all the hard way and mimicking a browser/user?
c:geo's code is open source and freely available but I am at a loss as to where to start
If anyone can point me to the correct file to start with I would appreciate it!
I've read through their readme but it isn't much help to the non-android dev.
Thanks for any direction!
