Downloaded lists have become nearly useless, as the map view now insists on accessing the server. If I'm in a place without data coverage, the map hangs while waiting for the server to respond. Out of annoyance, I have let the attempt go overnight, and the map was still hung the next morning. I've cleared the app's cache and re-downloaded the list, with same result. I've been hoping to find this fixed soon but the problem has persisted for a month or more.

Some of the directions are confusing in smaller towns, as street names do not necessarily correspond to the location. Also problematic is the drive mode seems to expect you to be able to literally drive across housing additions to find caches that are off the trails. Finding the trailhead is a problem at times, as they seem to better camouflaged than some of the caches

The app is pretty great for geocaching. HOWEVER, it is extremely frustrating when going through all the work necessary to hide an awesome cache, only to find out by a reviewer that there already is a cache in the area that is more than often a non-typical cache, aka mystery, Wherigo, etc. In the cache creation page, there's even a map with red circles that shows you nearby caches so you don't intrude on their territory. But this only applies to standard caches. It's a very frustrating issue.
