 After you exported your fieldnotes to the geocaching website, the website will show that you have pending fieldnotes [[https://​www.geocaching.com/​my/​fieldnotes.aspx|on this page]] and you can compose your logs in your browser.

-===== Static maps ===== 
-{{anchor:​static_maps:​}}

-This function can be activated in the [[.mainmenu:​settings#​offline_data|settings]] for the cache coordinates and/or for its waypoints and will download Google maps images of the area around each saved cache both as street map and satellite view (a total of 5 images). It is a helpful feature if you plan to go caching without internet access (and maybe even without an offline map). 
- 
-Also a basic street map will be shown at the bottom of the [[cachedetails|cache details]] page, the remaining maps are accessible by selecting Static Maps in the cache [[navigation|Navigation menu]]. 
- 
-<WRAP center round important 100%> 
-Please note, that there is a limit by Google of 1000 static maps per 24h per user(IP). Having a rather huge list of stored caches or even only some caches with many waypoints, you may easily reach this limit (as 5 images per cache and each cache waypoint are loaded). In this case some static maps might be missing.

-The following shows an example of static maps for a cache. You can click the images to see a larger version:

-Such files can be downloaded for your area/​country from various sources, e.g. [[http://​download.mapsforge.org/​|Mapsforge Download Server]] or [[http://​openandromaps.net|OpenAndroMaps]]. +Read more about how to use offline maps in our [[offlinemaps|Offline ​map tutorial]].
-With some effort you can also [[https://​github.com/​cgeo/​cgeo/​wiki/​How-to-create-your-own-offline-maps|manually create]] your own openstreetmap based map. +

-Once you downloaded an offline map file, you have to store it to the directory on your device as defined ​in the [[.mainmenu:​settings#​map|settings]]. If the file is a valid mapsforge offline ​map, it will afterwards be shown in the  [[ .mainmenu:​livemap#​top_bar_menu|map source selection]] on the live map or you can preselect the map file to be used in the [[.mainmenu:​settings#​map|settings]].+
