Does anyone know if it is possible to only view the caches from a pocket query on the map?

Go to your PQ's (www.geocaching.com/pocket). Click on the PQ in question, as if to edit it. Go to the bottom of the page and submit it. The resulting page will have a link to "Map this location". This will show you all the caches like you are used to seeing, except the ones in your PQ will have a "lightning bolt" icon instead of the normal icon.

You can also click the map icon in your list of pocket queries. But I think what WSD means (and I find it really annoying too) is that we want to see only the caches in that pocket query. Not all caches and then caches from the pocket query identified with a lightning bolt. Anyone know how to do that?

I had to hop into the wayback machine and go on the WGA site to find a reply I made last July on a similar question.

Here is the way to see it the old way and the thread on GC dealing with the want to see it like that again.

And here is the direct link to the comment with the workaround method:

I hope that's what you are looking for.

Exactly right. I want to only see the ones from the PQ, not all them.

If you've got a Garmin, there's a good chance that you have software that a GPX file will load into. Any MapSource mapping product from Garmin will take in a GPX file, U.S. Topo, City Nav, etc.

I use it regularly to plan all of my road trips.

Just playing around with the "new" map on gc.com there is a section on the left side that says "Layers" you can select a PQ from there, they showed up as a lightning bolt looking thing on the map, then I just went down and started deselecting cache types and they would disappear from the map just leaving the PQ results on the map by themselves. Don't know if that is what you're looking for...

Deselecting cache types kind of works and you're left with just the lightning bolt icons but nothing to click on to view the cache.

The workaround that kc9gbo found works.
