In the Live map there is a search function and you can read in the info that a gccode search might come in the future. I think that it would be nice to be able to search for coordinates and have the live map center on that coordinates.

I've already upvoted your request and this feature would be nice.

Also the category "Feature requests" is correct.

After more than 5 weeks waiting, without reaction of a PGC team member, moderator or 'heavy user', I'll want to confirm, that's not possible to search for coordinates in Live Map at the moment. This feature would be nice for 'sometime mobile website cachers' like me.

Here is my workaround, that I'm using during business meetings in other cities.
I use simply the 'map compare'-Tool with a 15 km centered coordinate.
15 km is the 'stressless' range for a folding-bike, in my view...

Feel free to change the filter / map center coordinates:

Map Compare Tool - Filter for specific map center coordinates

Of course, this is not a replacement for your suggested feature within Live Map, but a possible first step workaround and a first solving orientated answer in this thread...

Best regards,
Onkel Benny

I think this tool could be used to cheat and find future cache which have not been published yet. In case of big event, there are usually series of caches and by searching with coordinates, we should be able to find them in advance

The Live map wouldn't have the unpublished caches so that would not happen.
