Projects / GeoToad


GeoToad is a geocaching query tool to help speed up the boring part of geocaching: choosing the cache and collecting the data. It allows you to generate any kind of complex query you want, and the program will go and poll the Geocaching query, grab the data, and output it to any format you want. The Geocache info can be synced straight to your GPS, iPod, PDA, or cell phone in over 20 different formats.

Release Notes: This is an interim release, before removing the "fun factor" fuctionality completely. Also, a few quirks have been addressed.

Release Notes: This release addresses a lot of reported issues and wishlist items not covered by 3.19.0. Most notable are improvements in handling PMO caches, cookies, and filters. Some new long options (which can be better abridged) have been added. A caveat for EasyName users: The "waypointLength" option has been renamed "-w" to make room for further enhancements. There's an emergency download mirror now since GoogleCode has announced it will shut down its own download services. Note that there are no individual download links given this time.

Are you up for a new challenge?
The 3.17 development series has just been started, for testing new bugfixes and enhancements which would later be (back-)ported to the stable series but may still be broken or incomplete.
Caveat: If you don't like bleeding edges, don't use this. Problem reports to be sent by e-mail only!

Almost exactly one year after the site update which broke "early filtering" by Difficulty/Terrain/cacheSize from search results, we are proud to present GeoToad 3.14.7 which re-introduces this feature, adds search result limiting, and fixes a few minor issues.
As a bonus, Mac OS X packaging is back - hopefully the package will work on OSX versions prior to 10.6 (the version used for the build).
Please go directly to the GoogleCode download page until the links on this page are fixed.

There's also an update to the development version, now at 3.15.2 - attempts have been made to understand more foreign languages, and respect the user's date format preference.

See the GeoToad wiki for more details.

There's a new release out - 3.14.6 fixes the login issue that was triggered by the Oct 6 site update.
(Apologies that the "What's new" list may have been broken by past updates.)
Until the links on this page have been updated please visit

There's also a 3.15.1 with enhanced functionality (which is tagged Development and not Featured) but still in beta testing. Caveat emptor.

For more than two weeks, there's an incomplete set of GeoToad 3.14.5 packages available. MacOS isn't part of them yet which is why there hasn't been an announcement here yet.

There is also a development branch now (3.15.x) which for obvious reasons won't be linked to from here.
