Thread: Search caches by location AND keywords

    Default Search caches by location AND keywords

    I'm trying to search for a cache by distance and keyword...however from what I can tell on geocaching.com you can only search using one method, i.e. keyword OR location OR user who hid it etc...but not combinations.

    Does anyone know a site which offers this functionality?

    Thanks

    GSAK

    But.
    You need to have the cache in the GSAK database, in order to find it with GSAK.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried GSAK and from what I can tell to download any decent number of waypoints to search on i'll need a premium account? Looks like i'll have to consider getting one

    thats correct. It will handle .loc files (the free ones) but to make the most of it, you do need premium membership. Most cachers consider it a fair price!

    GSAK will work with LOC files.
    They can be downloaded 20 per page.
    You get (with the use of macros) County and State ie Warwickshire/West Midlands.
    GSAK will allow you to set a centre point, to get distance from...

    So it's possible to get from a LOC file;
    A cache
    with 'bridge' in the name
    set/( or not set!) by 'cacher A'
    in the county or state of...
    and between 6 and 9 miles from home or where ever you set the centre.

    Become a Premium Member, get the GPX files and you can filter even more, and get up to 500 caches downloaded in 1 go!, and these can be selected partly before you run the Pocket Query.
