Frequently Asked Questions
Spoiler Sync is a program written to help with geocaching. It allows geocachers with PDA's to automatically carry a folder of spoiler pictures for the geocaches they are attempting to find.

Often there is no need for a spoiler picture if the co-ordinates are accurate and tree cover is not present or a good hint is available. But if you are still struggling and a spoiler is available - you want to see it !

How does it work ?

Paperless cachers usually use lists of waypoints to allow their various gadgets to be easily programmed. Spoiler Sync supports both of the popular formats of these waypoint files (.LOC and .GPX)
When a waypoint file is selected, Spoiler Sync works through the waypoint file and checks the cache page with details of each cache, if there are any spoiler pictures linked to the page Spoiler Sync will download them to your local PC (optionally shrinking them to save space). The local folder of spoilers can then be copied across to your PDA or laptop so that you carry the spoiler pictures with you in case they are required.
