I wrote this application called Cache Report several months back that takes a Pocket Query GPX file and allows you to simply print out caches in alpha order. No log entries but hints are decoded.

Feel free to give it a try if you want. Pretty simple program.. no features.. what you see is what you get. It served my needs for a while. I'd print out a new report everytime I updated the GPSr and kept it in the car. Cheaper than a PocketPC and GSAK.

You will need the .NET v1.1 framework to run the program. So if you don't already have it you can get that directly from Microsoft.

You can get my Cache Report program from my old consulting website at:
http://www.bitdebris.com/downloads/cachereport.zip

If you download it and use it, all I ask is that you send me a note saying how much it sucks or how cool it is or could be.

No.. I doubt I'll ever get around to build a GSAK-like tool. I've got too many other projects underway right now.

Cache Report has gone more mainstream and you can read about release 1.2 here at my website: http://www.bitdebris.com/page/Cache-Report.aspx . Also, Groundspeak has just confirmed to me that it is now a Groundspeak approved tool and will be listed on their website after their next release on their approved software page.

I think anyone who has an interest in this software will really enjoy release 1.3 which is user testing right now. Testing should be completed this week when it will be made available for download.

Cache Report v1.3 released this evening. You can find more information about it here..

http://www.bitdebris.com/page/Cache-Report.aspx

If you thought the prior releases were just ok, then you should enjoy this release as it makes the tool much more powerful and flexible to use, but still keeping in the original purpose of the tool.

Glad it's something you find useful. I've actually become addicted to my own tool and when I forget to print my Cache Reports, I feel lost out in the field.
