Stored caches

This menu lists the Geocaches currently stored on your mobile device for offline use. For a better geocaching experience, c:geo allows you to organize your stored geocaches into multiple lists.

You can always access the information in these lists, even if you have no network connection. All caches in these lists are stored offline with all relevant information. However some additional information (log images) is only available offline if you enabled this in the corresponding settings.

Cache list

Tap on the following links to get information about the Geocache Type Icons in c:geo and Geocache marker icons in c:geo, which are used on the cache lists.

The same list view is also used in the result of search functions, for showing a list of caches on the live map and for displaying the content of pocket queries.
In this case - of course - caches on the list might not (yet) be stored in an offline list.

The list will show you the title of each geocache in the first row. Below this there is a subtitle showing its geo code, the D/T rating, the cache size, the premium-only status (if applicable) and whether the cache is stored offline (helpful if you are looking at a search result list). If enabled in settings the subtitle will also show the names of all lists, where the cache is stored.
The color stripe on the very left indicates (in addition to the markers on the cache type icon) whether this cache is found, you posted that you did not find it or you have a pending offline log for it.

If the title is strike through the corresponding cache is temporarily disabled, if the cache title is additionally shown in red letters the cache is archived and no longer available.

A short tap on one of the list entries will open the details of this cache, a long tap will open a context menu with direct access to some cache related functions.

The information shown for each geocache on the right side of the list view is explained in the table below:

Icon Description
Distance and direction towards the cache based on your current location (basic members of will only see a limited information here)
The number shows the amount of favorite points ( or recommendations (opencaching) of this cache.
The background color represents the average GCVote rating of the cache:
Green = Good rating (>3,5 stars)
Brown = Average rating (between 2,5 and 3,5)
Red = Bad rating (<2,5 stars).
If there is no color shown the cache does not have any votes yet or is not supported in GCVote (GCVote does currently only support caches).
The symbol is a marker which is only shown if the cache contains trackables. The number right next to it is the amount of trackables listed in this cache.

Load more option

If the list you opened is created from a search result or a pocket query view there will be a button at then end of the list labeled Load more caches (Currently: XX) showing how many caches have currently been loaded to the list and tapping on it will load more results / pocket query entries.

Context menu

At a long tap on one of the caches on your list, the following context menu will be opened, providing you access to some direct actions on this cache:

Menu item Description
CompassOpens the compass to directly navigate to this cache.
NavigateOpens the complete navigation options to select one of the supported navigation methods to this cache.

Move to different listMove this cache onto another list.
Copy to different listCopy this cache onto another list but keep it also on the current list.
RefreshUpdate the cache details with data from the geocaching server

List menu

The icons shown in the top bar and the contents behind the overflow menu button are distributed dynamically based on your device resolution and screen orientation. Thus it might be possible, that more or less items can be found behind the menu button or instead shown as icons in the top bar on your device.
In case a menu entry is shown as an icon you can long press the icon to get a popup showing its function.

Icon/Section Function Description
List ManagementThis section shows either the name of the current list or the search information in case a list is opened as a search result or the pocket query name in case the list is opened from a pocket query.
Furthermore the amount of caches on the current list (limited to the filtered caches if applicable). Tapping on this section will open the list of all cache lists to select another cache list to display.
Filter indicationThis line will only show up in case a Cache Filter is active.
Tapping on this line will directly take you to the corresponding filter dialog.
Map the listTapping this icon will show the caches on this list on a map.
FilterTapping this icon will open a filter dialog to filter the caches on your list according to various criteria.

If visible in the top bar, a long tap will open a list of the stored filters to change the active filter.
Overflow menu buttonTapping here will open the menu of functions not fitting into the top bar on your device, thus being displayed as a list instead. The function shown in this list are also described in this table.
SortingYou can use this function to sort the list according to your needs.
Select modeUsing this function will put the list into a selection mode allowing you to select a subset of caches on the list in order to use the Manage Caches function on this selection.
Show on mapThis is a similar function to the Map List function/icon explained above, but also supports opening all caches from the list on other maps and in external apps.
Manage cachesThis option provides functions to delete, refresh, move, etc. the caches on the list.
You can combine it with the Selection Mode to apply the change only to a subset of your list.
Manage listsThis option provides functions delete, modify the existing list or create new lists.
ImportThis option allows importing of caches from several sources onto your cache lists.
ExportThis option allows export of caches or parts of the cache information in several ways.


Selecting the same sorting option twice will allow you to reverse the order in the sorted list (e.g. sorting by name will then sort from Z → A instead of A → Z).

Menu item Description
Automatic sortingWill sort as follows:
1. Default sorting by distance
2. If list contains only events, the list is sorted by event date
3. If list contains a cache series with similar names, the list will be sorted by cache name.
Count on InventorySort according to the amount of registered trackables in the cache
Date HiddenSort by hidden date of the cache.
(If your list does only contain event caches, this will be automatically used as default sorting.)
Date LoggedSort by the date you logged the cache
Date stored on deviceSort by the date you stored the cache on the list.
DifficultySort by difficulty rating of the cache.
DistanceSort by distance between your position and the cache.
(This is the default sorting for cache lists)
FavoritesSort by amount of favorite points of the cache.
Favorites [%]Sort by favorite percentage of the cache.

:!: This sorting method will only give reliable results when used on a list of stored caches, but not in search results.
FindsSort by amount of total finds for a cache.
Geo codeSort alphabetically by geo code of the cache.
NameSort alphabetically by title of the cache.
(If c:geo detects that your list seems to contain a series of similar caches (e.g. a cache trails with a fixed name and incremented numbers), this sorting will be used by default).
RatingSort by GCVote rating of the cache.
SizeSort by size information of the cache.
StatusSort by status of the cache.
TerrainSort by difficulty rating of the cache.
Vote (Own Rating)Sort by your own GCVote rating of the cache.

The sorting mode you selected will be kept for each individual list.

Select mode

After activating the selection mode your list will be shown with check boxes in front of each cache as shown in the picture above. This allows you to mark some caches on your list by tapping on them and afterwards batch perform actions on the selected caches from the Manage Caches menu (e.g. delete all selected caches).

Additionally you can now use the Invert Selection menu option to invert your current selection, which might be helpful if you want to select all except only some caches on your list.

Once you are done, use the Exit select mode menu option to leave the selection mode.

You can also quickly invoke the selection mode while on a list, by swiping from left to right on a list item.

Show on map

This menu option allows you to show the caches on your list (or a subset of them by using the Selection mode) on a map of your choice.

This can either be one of the supported map types in c:geo or a supported third party app like Locus or

Manage Caches

This menu allows you to manage the caches on your list in different ways as described below. In case you selected some cache using the Selection mode, the menu items will show the amount of caches selected in brackets, else the actions will be performed for all caches on the list.

You can trigger the following actions:

Menu item Description
RefreshThis will update the caches online with the newest information from the geocaching server.
MoveThis will move the caches to another list.
CopyThis will copy the caches to another list (but also keep them on the current list.)
RemoveThis will delete the caches from the current list.
Delete past eventsThis menu item is only visible if your list contains event caches and will delete all events where the event date is in the past.
Upload modified coordinatesThis menu item will trigger an upload of all modified listing coordinates of caches in this list to the geocaching server.
Upload coordinates for all cachesThis menu item will trigger an upload of all cache coordinates of caches in this list as modified coordinates to the geocaching server.
:!: WARNING: This will overwrite the existing coordinates on the server for all (selected) caches of your list with the current listing coordinates in c:geo! This is to be used only in special cases, e.g. when you imported a GPX file which contains corrected coordinates as listing coordinates. This cannot be undone and you should only use it, if you know what you are doing. In normal cases the function Upload modified coordinates in the same menu.
Clear offline logsThis menu item is only available if caches on your list have an offline log and will allow you to delete these offline logs.
Set cache iconThis function allows you to define a custom icon to be used for all cached on this list. Once selected it replaces the usual cache type icons.
Create user defined cache This will start creation of a user defined cache.

Manage Lists

This menu option provides options to manage your cache lists.

Set list markerWith this function you can assign a marker icon for the caches on this list. Different icons are available to choose from. Afterwards the cache icons of caches on this list will be shown with this marker on the map and on your lists. Up to two list markers will be shown on your cache icons.
