Any Geocachers use their iPad?

My wife and I are avid geocachers - have just under 2800 caches in nearly 40 states, 5 countries (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA & Fiji.) We are eager to use the iPad to cache - does anybody use it for geocaching? If so, do you use the "official" geocaching app, or something else? We use the c:geo on our android phones (yea, I know ... it's not the iPhone!)

Thanks friends,

I just looked it up. Sounds fun. Is it kinda like this?

We found this seashell about 200 ft into the woods from our camp site this summer.

Kinda .. it's a great hobby you can do with the entire family or solo. I have made many friends around the world as I geocached (I had a family drive 2.5 hours from where they lived to meet me in Sydney and I keep in touch with them to this day - as a matter of fact, they are planning a trip to the US in 2011 and a pit stop in Georgia!)

All of our friends are geocachers. We could all be at dinner at someones house or out to eat when we would get a notification about a new cache that just popped up. We would all rush out to be the first to find, or FTF.

Recently acquired an iPad
Am about to take it travelling.
Would like to use it to find geocaches near my hotel and then load the info into my Garmin Oregon.
Does this sound possible?
iPad is wifi only
Thanks

I've currently downloaded iGeopad and I'm trying to put just my first geocache into the data base. That progress wheel is just spinning. I'm not sure if it's working. I'll get back to you. Anyone else downloaded any apps that work?

We recently buried a cache here: N38 53.86205 W77 2.19162. Get there early. Take a shovel and be very quiet or you will wake the neighbors.
