Default map settings


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I like to see the map on geocaching.com as following:


- Browse geocaches

- OpenStreetMap Defalult


Where can I set it as it starts like this as default ?

And if i can't set it, why it is impossible to set this defaults ?

Assuming that you are using the Leaflet-based map, here is a bodged-together UserScript that automatically switches to "OpenStreetMap Default" on page load.


// ==UserScript==
// @name         Geocaching Map Redirect
// @namespace    http://tampermonkey.net/
// @version      0.1
// @match        https://www.geocaching.com/map/*
// @grant        none
// @run-at       document-start
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
    var x;

    const SET_OSM = function() {
        console.log("Attempting to set OSM...");

        const OSM_RADIO_BTN = document.querySelectorAll("form.leaflet-control-layers-list div label input")[1];
        if (OSM_RADIO_BTN) {


    x = setInterval(SET_OSM, 500);

I think @Huck1974's issue is that the default map tiles are "Geocaching", rather than "OpenStreetMap Default." See the selector on the right side of the map.


Right, that's what I would like !

I am using the Leaflet-based map, so I will try you script !

And once again, Thank you Hügh ! :)

Has anybody managed to script-hack the great new CyclOSM map into that list?


If I was still bothering to suggest improvements, that would be my number-one.  (To see that map albeit without caches, click the never-used OpenStreetMap link on a cache page, tap the layers icon near the top-right corner, and select CyclOSM.)
