If you plan a cachingtrip and what to log interesting caches it is useful to add the caches to the vgps. For example High FP, %FP, uncommon types, interesting DT, solved myst, old caches, caces needed for some challenge, Easy stop in a new county etc
You have a nice overview of what caches you like to log and can create a GPX to have a separate list of those caches on some cachingapps.
It can also be used used to replace PQ:s to download caches you have more options in choosing what caches you what to bring with you.

The video below describes how to use pgc to plan a trip

There's also the fact that the GPX files you create from VGPS don't have a 1000 cache limit like pocket queries do (you do have a limit of 10,000 caches in a day though). I've used this to create a single GPX file of all the caches I haven't found yet in my territory (about 2400).
@sumbloke make this into an answer, that’s upvote-worthy!
