Anybody else notice that geocaching.com now has Google maps in their Online Maps listing? Yippeee!! BTW, I really like Google map's fairly new Hybrid option that shows satellite photos overlayed with the roads.

And here is another one.

Here is a "How-to" guide on how to create a real-time GPS tracker using Google Maps API.

Does anyone know if there's a working version of the geocaching.com .kml app for google earth? The one I had was working a few weeks ago and now it errors out...

That was an awesome way to locate caches along a travel route or just browsing areas.

D'oh.. found the topic at groundspeak. The old one I was looking for had some TOS issues. Sad

It was cool while it lasted.

Hugobear, if you use Firefox there's a way to generate a link from the cache page that will take you to the coordinates on google earth. It's done via the grease monkey exension and a script. Has worked very slick for me.

Google is everybodies freind !

http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/

I dont have it installed at home, or Id give you the name of the script....sorry-
but it is very interesting-

There is another one (script) out there that breaks the maps at google down into links for the hybrid, the sat shot and the map-
Kind of clutters up the map section, but is nice to speed it along-

I think if you searched gc.com forums, greasemonkey- you'd find it.
Im on dialup ,so sorry- but I cant help ya- tomorrow am Ill try if you havent found it...

I've had keyhole for about 10 months and knew that google earth plus was out there, but didn't bother downloading it until yesterday.

Wow.

I created a bookmark list for "alphabet soup" (shared it and stuff) then clicked the "download kml". It launched google earth plus and plunked all the caches on the list right into google earth!

Then I went to my account page on gc.com and clicked the "download geocache browser in google earth" link.

VERY COOL

You just look at the sat image of some area (any area) and all the caches in that field of view just pop onto the image. I don't think it has any idea whether you've found the cache or not.... You can click on any of them to see the cache page.

I 'spose I'm the last one to see this stuff, but it's quite impressive.
