I seem to be in the minority on this opinion but I can't stand the heat map on every map in the maps tab. The color isn't great but I can deal with that, mostly I just want to see a consistent color for the areas I've been to. I already know that I've found less caches in places I've only traveled through, I don't need a shading system to tell me that. Checking the maps after a trip used to be my favorite part of Project-GC but now I barely like it.

I looked around to see if I could turn it off but I don't think there's a way. It could be as simple as a checkbox in the settings, although I'm not a programmer so I don't know for sure how hard it would be to actually write out such a thing. I don't have a paid membership here as of now but I'd 100% pay up if it meant my maps were solid color again.

Project-GC answered a similar request on facebook with that they are considering/discussing to implement a version without the five levels but that it haven't been decided yet and that they will have to prioritize fixing stuff on the new maps first.

Ah ok. I don't have Facebook so I didn't know anyone else had asked. I guess I'll just have to ride it out for a while.
No worries, it's not that easy to keep track of things happening on Facebook even if you're active there. :) It's good that you asked because here people can upvote your suggestion if they agree and Project-GC can see that more people want the same thing.

Also, if you didn't know, you don't need to have an account to read the things Project-GC posts on Facebook, so if you want to you can visit and see short news etc. Just click the "not now" on the popup that tries to make you get an account.
