Beta version of new, unlimited caches map. Also, check out the "next" arrow on the splash screen that pops up in the new maps. The 2nd page promises more features (one of which I have been harping on for years... automatic maps -> pocket query filter. What I have filtered on the maps should be filtered in the PQ dialog.)

Currently, for me, the new maps show me Seattle. I'm sure that will be fixed soon.

For the voting, for each 10 caches you have found, you get to vote for one cache as a favorite. Apparently, the results of your "vote" is not anonymous, which may cause hesitation for some. Probably not, though, since this is meant to promote favorites, and not criticize disliked caches.

Oh yeah... new forum software at long last, too.

Quite a coincidence that all these long asked for changes are coming true just as Garmin's new site goes live (ahem... I mean, "beta").

Good question. How many caches have you hidden?

Oh, really? Doesn't surprise me though. Seems like every week somebody was asking how they can see who is watching their cache, and when told they couldn't asking why not, or requesting that be added.

Actually they didn't. But they did move it (and I think it was moved in an earlier release) to the box that shows when you found the cache. If you have not found the cache yet, that box doesn't display, so you lose the watch list counter too.
