I may be missing this but how do you print the new gooogle maps on geocaching.com web site. The new maps show all the caches in the area but am not seeing a print function and screen print really does a poor job.

I haven't been playing with printing the new google maps, but I have noticed the poor job when I just print the standard directions type Google map. One way to get around this is to still use the old geocaching maps from the link on the cache's web page. This works best if you're a premium member because you can pan and zoom the maps, although they aren't as easy to use as the google maps.

Anyone else have a better way to print out the google maps?

Worst case, File/Print from the main browser window, or Ctrl-P - better than a screen print, but won't fill up the page with the map...

I just use Rand McNally selection listed on for online maps. Really helps me find out which side of a River to start my search. I learned the hard way Laughing
