Browse v. Search caches maps.

Recommended Posts

When on a cache page and clicking on View Larger Map it defaults to the Search Caches map.  This map has very powerful search filters but for my purposes I never use it.  

 

Is there a way to make the Browse Caches map the default?    I tried the search forums tool but it didn't find what I was looking for.

I don't like this either! The search filters have no bearing at all when I want to see the cache on a larger map.

As @barefootjeff has already written, there is no way to make the Browse Map the default. But maybe it is also sufficient if you have a second link that calls up the Browse Map. You can use the script below.

Except for seeing contours, the Search map is of no use to me what-so-ever. It's slow to load and then only shows a small area. I use Browse map, where I can see all the caches. Very important to see all the caches, especially when preparing a trip of hundreds (or more) of kms. I need the broad overview.

Yep.  This is the way I use it too.  I want to see where all the caches are first and then make my route.

 

Thanks for the info everyone.

When the search map came out and people asked for the browse map being the default, the answer given was always to click on the browse button after the search map comes up. I still don't think that's much of an answer, but it is a quick way to get to the map you want.

My 'shortcut' is to use the "Find... ...all nearby caches" link, which produces a list, then click the Map This Location link to go to the Browse map. Seems to me to be the simplest/quickest way to get a browse map centered at the listing coordinates that doesn't involve cutting and pasting.

There is a link to the browse map in the head of every cache listing ...

If only it were that easy.  I don't see any "Map this Location".

 

You've got a helper script doing that?

Yes, of course!

It was an answer to dagger38 question in terms of the GC little helper script.

Ah okay, not every listing.  We live in different worlds.  Every listing when you've taken the trouble to enhance the base product...
