    First of all I should explain what geocaching is for those who don't know. It's a "treasure hunt" type game that uses handheld gps systems and coordinates to find user hidden "caches." More info can be found at http://www.geocaching.com

    What I'm looking for is an application that can view .gpx files from the website. If you are a premium member at geocaching.com you can download a query of the caches in your area, included in the file is the cache hint, description, difficulty, ect... Some gps units are directly compatible with this and can view this info, others are not (like mine) if your gps is not compatible you need to either print the info out or view it on a pda or other device that supports the file.
    (More info on .gpx at http://www.topografix.com/gpx.asp)

    I would greatly appreciate if somebody would undertake this project. I know it could be used by many! If anyone thinks they can do this, or needs more info or a sample .gpx file please post back.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Anybody at all? I really wish I had some experience in coding... This should be pretty simple, the .gpx file is pretty much just a modified xml text file.

    it's not as simple as asking for somebody to do it...

    the coder/s would need to have an interest and need in it and a large enough audience to warrant doing it in the first place.

    I know, it's fine if nobody's willing, thanks for looking though!
