Filter for Geocaching Favorite Points

Martin shared this idea 2 years ago
In Progress

Could you please add a Geocaching Filter to filter caches with Favorite Points?


Like "Show me only caches with more than 30 favorite points".


Thank you!

Hi Martin,

not exactly what you want,

open your GC-folder/click on middle bottom button/Geocaching/Sort by Favorites

with additional click on "eye button" you can select e.g. "first 50 points" of folder


to search for more than "x" FP´s is not possible yet

"...to search for more than "x" FP´s is not possible yet ..."


-> This is what i want ;-)


(A filter, not a sort feature)

Is there a way to add this feature? Filtering in Locus is very easy, so I hope there will be a filter for favorite points soon.


For Geocachers it is important to filter out the best ones in an area when you don't have much time, like on vacation.


With the filter you can see where the good ones are.


Sorting is no opportunity - it gives me a list if all Geocaches sorted by favorite points, but these are then far away and not in the area where I am. :-(

+1 agree with you. Also small FAV (crown icon) is not configurable

Attaching screenshot from my favorite GC app CachseSense (unfortunately it is discontinued and works unstable on new android versions).

As we can see in screenshot GC points have Red / Yellow / Green / None highlights (there are 3 databases with such colors). I moved all caches which have FAV 30+ to Red / 15-30 Yellow / 5-15 Green databases.


Is there a chance to have such configurable item highlight on map?

would be a very helpful filter especially in dense regions like cities. To see "the highlights" at first sight and filter out the bunch of "boring" ones with less favourite points.

@Menion Any posibilities to add fav counter directly in for example replacing gcvote (could be set in settings if it should show gcvote, or fav count)?

Ohhh, 🤤 I use both. 😏

You mean directly display FAV count on the map? Because FAV value is already visible in the list of points.This is little-complicated task I think. Display on tiny cache icon another tiny symbol (fav icon) + small number = unreadable.

That's one thing I still miss since I changed from Garmin to locus several years ago.

There exists a great icon set for Geocaching in Locus maybe it would be possible to add there a new symbol if FAV count is higher than x-Points. The value should be user defined.

ah this is an interesting idea! I'll think about it, thanks

Ok agree with both off you that fav number would be small but we could add icon only if fav count exceeds some value. Also maybe favorite count could be added to map geocache overview see attachment?

Or another idea. Don't get tied to fav count. Let user choose geocaching folder highlighting color and display it on map. Again example in attachment. In that case user could move caches with it's defined fav count or any other classification in specific folders with different highlighting colors

Your ideas/requests are little offtopic here. Anyway

- FAV in popup window: this popup will change in near future a lot, so I'll keep this in my mind

- background color: currently not planned, sorry

Thanks. Pity. But I just read about red circle on map for tagged points idea on other topic. It's pretty similar I think
