I have one database, unless travelling, that I use custom filters for, depending upon where I am going.

I use this tool --> http://gsak.net/google/polygoneditor.html to create a "polygon" then load that polygon into GSAK, making sure to use the "include" radio button, versus the "exclude" button. I set that filter to include what ever I am after (difficulty, terrain, size, type, etc.) inside that polygon, run it and then export the data from that filter. I only include "solved" puzzles in this, and then off I go.

For challenge puzzles that are "at the posted coordinates" I update those to show "corrected coordinates" yeah, they don't change, but it makes the filter work easier for me.

I've been using the Findable macro which load all unfound, non-acrhived non-puzzle caches, plus any puzzle cache with the user field 1 set to 'Solved'.

So for solved puzzles, I know use corrected coords and set user data 1 to solved,

For field puzzles I set it to solved, for challenges that I have met, I set those to Solved.

The corrected coordinates thing really is great.
