The SalemPirates Release iPlunder - Pirate GPX Reader and Geocaching Program!

Yarrr, time to set sail, me hearties, in search of geocache treasure!

If you have a premium geocaching membership (and who doesn't?) you know the single best benefit is the ability to run pocket queries. Pocket queries generate GPX files. Those GPX files can be loaded onto your GPS device, saving you from hand-entering each geocache.

But wait, there's more! These helpful GPX files also contain a wealth of information on each individual geocache. Name, difficulty, terrain, past logs, hints and more.

It's time. Time to take your plundering to the next level and go truly paperless. iPlunder will allow you to download multiple GPX files onto your iPhone or iPod Touch. You'll have all the information you need to find those geocaches, right in the palm of your hand. Your printer (and its expensive inks) can finally take a break!

Using the latest iPhone technology, you'll be able to map out the geocaches using street maps or satellite imagery. Using the built in GPS, you'll be able to zero in on the cache and make the find. The geocaches won't stand a chance, matey!

You'll be able to take notes in the field and update the geocache's found status. You can flag caches to find just the ones you want. Update the coords of those multi/mystery caches as you huntYou can create filters to list or map only the caches you've found, haven't found, didn't find or that you flagged.

Another great feature is the ability to email the details of your daily caching run. The email includes the found status, time stamp, field note and a link to the geocache's web site, making logging a breeze.

iPlunder will work on both the iPod Touch and the iPhone. You will need network access to update the maps, but the app will display the geocaches in their relative positions without access. No matter to what dead zone some evil micro takes you, this app will still function.

Please note, this app downloads your GPX file from a web site of your choosing. You will need to be able to place your GPX file on a web server, either in your home or on the internet, to import the GPX file. (Don't worry, it's easy, check out the links below to see some examples).

Thanks for all the suggestions and all our customers' continued support!
