    • filter your finds out when you do an imprompu search

      When I use the app just to find caches on the fly, it includes all the caches in the area that I have already found (but they are not marked as found on the app) - this makes it difficult to sort through the list to see which caches I should go for.

      • Allow user to change map settings

        I always prefer North Up on my map as I find a rotating map very distracting while driving. At this time I am not aware of an option to change this function of the map.

        • allow multiple pocket queries to be loaded at the same time.

          I use Geosphere to load my solved puzzles as one pocket query and all the other types as a separate pocket query. That way I can see if I am passing by a solved puzzle and not worry about going to the posted coordinates instead of the solved coordinates. New Cache does not seem to be able to do that.

          • automatically start a new ad-hoc search when leaving the zone of loaded caches

            After initiating the loading of caches around me the first time, it would be helpful, if the app starts loading new caches automatically when I leave the area where caches were found.

            • can adjust the amount of caches to load via ad-hoc searches

              It would be helpful, if the user was able to adjust the amount of caches, that are loaded when doing an ad-hoc search. I suggest to give an option, to choose the amount in the range between 20 and 300 caches to be loaded.

              • Load pocket queries via the GC.com API

                The import of pocket queries to the app could be realized just like it works in the GC app: List all pocket queries available (API all) and choose the one you want to import into the app.

                • Give the option to save your settings so we don't have to re-set them every time

                  Every time I restart the app, it comes up with Activate App (GPS) in the OFF position, GPS Accuracy in the LOW position and Distance at 100m even when I quit out of the app with my preferred settings.

                  • An option to run on map screen instead of front page

                    Seeing that a cache is 175 m away does me little good if I cannot see where it is on a map in relation to myself and the other nearby caches. Having an option to run the app with the map screen up showing all nearby caches within your chosen distance would be much more convenient than a text list showing GC code, distance and relative direction. There may be a highway or a river between you and the nearest cache but to find this out, you need to select that specific cache and see where it is.

                    • Allow user to change information on splash page notifications

                      I have 20/20 vision, but while driving with my iphone mounted, I can only make out the GC number of the cache. The rest of the info is just too small. If you give users the ability to change the information in the notifications as well as the style and size of the notification box (for example, I could choose to have an icon for the cache type, the name of the cache and distance from the cache in a larger notification bubble and larger font.
