Hi.  I'm building some tools for a forum I'm part of, which has members who use various different cache listing sites.  

The crux of it is that I need to take a waypoint code, determine which listing site it belongs to and construct a URL that opens that cache page on the appropriate site.  This is simple for TCxxxx and GCxxxx waypoints but I'm struggling to work out how it's done with Navicache waypoint codes.  Is it possible or can Navicaches only be linked to by their respective CacheID value?

Essentially what I'm looking for is the Navicache equivalent of
www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCxxxx

Any help appreciated, thanks :)
Jeremy

I do something similar and I use the cacheID.

Oh I see now, CacheID is merely the integer equivalent of the hex waypoint code (less the N, of course)...  So N02ADF becomes 10975.  

Thanks :)
