Update Mystery and Multi-cache Coordinates
Now with Pocket Query support!
In the last release we made it possible for Basic and Premium Members to add "corrected" coordinates to Mystery and Multi-caches. Visit the cache page and click the pencil icon next to coordinates, paste your new coordinates in the field and submit. That's it! The new coordinates will be hidden from others so there is no reason to fear spoiling the final location. When you download the GPX from the cache or generate a Pocket Query your new coordinates are included.

Geocaching Live API Beta
The beta launch of the Geocaching Live API continues! This time we're pleased to announce four new partners:
PocketDrake is a freeware application for devices running Windows Mobile designed for paperless geocaching. The aim of the program is to provide in one place everything needed for geocaching as well as to allow simple data management through programs on the PC. It is recommended to use PocketDrake in cooperation with GeoGet, because both applications share the same database.
Premium maps and downloads for Portugal provided by Geocaching@PT. View all caches online and apply filters to find only the caches you want. Downloads are available in a variety of file formats to view on your device.
