Post subject:  Can you plot a database on GSAK onto a map?

Just in the late planning stages for a trip coming up soon to the USA and am wondering if a specific functionality exists on GSAK.

There is a huge saturation of caches along the route we will be going (about 20,000 caches :shock: ). I have made a number of pocket queries along the route we will be going along and have downloaded these into separate databases in GSAK. I have then sorted these by numbers of favourite points and now have a number of caches I intend to target as we go along. Now to the question:

If I filter out these caches and so end up with about 25 caches, left in the database, are there any tools in GSAK to plot these onto a single map that I can print off? When you run a pocket query you can select a map icon on your list of pocket queries which shows all of the caches in that query on a single map, this is what we are looking to do from a GSAK database.

Thanks

This might help: http://gsak.net/board/index.php?s=a1d24c9fab0dd8053a782d3f0b239951&showtopic=17505&st=20&#entry186702

Try using the macro at the bottom of this link.

+1 on what Bunya said.

Since I've had GSAK I've used the previous versions of this mapping macro. I spend most of my time in the map on one screen and jumping back to GSAK on the other screen when I click the links. It's so good it should come bundled with GSAK.

If you use Oziexplorer, GSAK has a built-in Ozi waypoint (cache) export.
