hi, is it possible to search a cache by waypoint?

Background: on opencaching.de its possible to enter waypoints from geocaching.com and navicache.com if the cache is listet on one of this sites.
Currently for nc.com we can't show a link to this site, because we don't know the correct url (if its available)

The syntax for gc.com is: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCXXXX
and results in the page of the cachelisting.

Is the same available on navicache.com?

regards, orotl

Hi orotl,

there is a way to search for a cache by waypoint. But you have to convert the waypoint to a number. Take as an example the Cache with waypoint N00CE1 if you take the last five letters as hexadecimal number, you can convert it to decimal (3297) you can search for this cache this way: http://www.navicache.com/cgi-bin/db/displaycache2.pl?CacheID=3297

Greetings Millhouse.
