Recommended Posts

hi can someone recommend a good geocaching manager so i can download cache info onto my computer then upload to my gps. when i come home download the ones i find back onto my computer and log the finds back at geocacheing.com

I use GSAK but I've been looking at Geobuddy software as well. It looks like a nicely integrated package but seems to be specifically designed to use the USGS mapping which is a bit of a draw-back for those of us in Canada... For USA users it sounds really good.

If any U.S. cachers are using Geobuddy, maybe they can pass on some comments.

I've tried both gsak and geobuddy. I like the interface of gsak better, including some of the sorting options. But I ended up standardizing on geobuddy. Geobuddy will provide a map display as well as a list display. This feature allows me to pick a cache and see what's visually be able to determine what caches are nearby. This allows me to plan a geocaching outing. Both are free to try, so try both of them out and see which you are move comfortable with.

There is a nice macro in the GSAK library that will do this for you as well. You can download from here

I know this is a dumb question, but how do you install the macro?
