Web browser extension (UserScript)

This tool is a user-enabled script that extends the user experience at the Geocaching.com website, primarily by integrating Project-GC into it. The audience for this script are primarily geocaching power-users, however some of the basic features can make the novice or beginner experience better as well.

The UserScript is mostly meaningful for our paying members. For non paying members the features are quite limited.

Open source

The UserScript is open source, and anyone is allowed to push updates. If you are interested, clone the project at Github, make your changes and create a Pull request.

Some of the features of the script:

  • Add to Virtual GPS straight from Geocaching.com.
  • Add challenge checkers to Geocaching.com automatically.
  • Make copy friendly GC-Code and geocache page link.
  • Add link to the PGC Live map from geocache pages.
  • Duplicate latest logs to the top.
  • Add a reverse geocoded address below the coordinates of a geocache.
  • Remove the UTM coordinates.
  • Add favorite point data from Project-GC.
  • Add links to Profile stats after every geocachers name.
  • Tidy up Geocaching.com a bit. Most focus has been on the geocache page.
  • Collapse download links.
  • Add links to Project-GC gallery where suitable.
  • Add links to map bookmark lists.
  • Automatically decrypt hints.
  • Add elevation data after geocache coordinates.
