We use this facility a lot. Its a very simple way of selecting caches (up to 500) and loading them all to your gps, and it only takes a few minutes to complete.

the easiest thing to do is read through the form first, there are numerous combinations that you can set to load. E.G you may be off to Spain for a week, and only want to find caches with a terrain greater than 3, all you have to do is select that category. You may only want to look for multi caches within a 10 mile radius of where you are staying, again just select those parameters. Like we said read through first.

Once you have selected your requirements, at the bottom of the page -make sure the output box has your email address in, and gpx format selected for saving.

then submit information.

This will create either straight away/or after a period of time a gpx file to download. This file can be uploaded and saved to your gps. you will then have all the cache info/hints/logs etc for all the caches found that matched your requirements.

we hope this helps.. it is quite hard to explain... but it is we promise very easy to use.
Once mastered, you can then look at caches on route... this is good if you are planning a walk/cycle ride/drive, it will search for selected requirements caches along your route.
