Add circles on Live Map ?

+8 votes
Hello everybody !

should it possible to add a tool in the live map which permits to show the 161m circles around caches ? The GS official tool is pretty useless to looking for free areas for a trail.

Today, i'm using Floop's Map but i have to input each cache... so long for a complete area ;)

Thanks a lot (again) for all !

This is one of the planned items, as you can see in the map:

  • Show 161 m / 0.1 mi circles

It is not possible in Live map yet, but you can do that in all the other map tools. For example in Map Compare. You can select only single user, show all caches. In the map then hover on the geocaching icon (circle with cross) and click on the most right icon with circle.

It will draw the circles around all the caches on the map (including the caches with corrected coordinates and so on).

Amazing !! I never think to look inside other maps tools (because Live Map is so useful ;) )
Man, those planned features have been teasing me for months now. Can't wait till they're implemented!
Any updates on this feature? This would be really useful on the Live Map.
