Geocaching related links

c:geo will register itself for geocaching specific hyperlinks, so that c:geo will be shown as possible target app, when you tap on one of those links in another app.

For example c:geo will register for links starting with http://coord.info/GC which is used in mails sent by geocaching.com to their users and target a certain cache listing. Tapping on this link in any app and selecting c:geo as target app, will directly open the cache details of the linked cache in c:geo. The same applies for geocaching related links of other geocaching platforms.

When being asked which app to use to open these links, you can also select c:geo as default app for this link type. Afterwards your device will directly start c:geo when such a link is tapped.

The downside of assigning c:geo with all geocache related links as default is, that (depending on your device and Android version) using the Open in browser function of c:geo might now only open c:geo itself.

You can avoid that, by activating the Chrome Webview feature in c:geo. Additionally our FAQ also describes different methods to resolve this problem (e.g. in case you do not use the Google Chrome browser on your device).
