DT Matrix, Badge Gen
Profile stats and challenge checkers!
all Features are brilliant :D
Would definitely have to be the bad logs....even though it's a rarely used tool....and it was broken for old logs (treating note logs as find logs, even messing up my find count in the profile stats) this tool makes sure you have an accurate find count on itself.
The Statistic and the challange checker ;)
The Stats and the TB discovering tool ;)
would have to be
1.Challenge Checkers
2. Statistics
3. Badge Gen ( I love using this to give me ideas on what my priorities might be)
Easy of use of Profile Statistics and also the challenge checkers. This saves so much time.

I really like how Project-GC records statistics that you don't normally see and it's also helpful for some challenge caches when you have to find e. g. 3 states in a day.

There are so many useful features. I could copy the menu entrys. Vera often I use the D/T - search tool, the discover trackable tool, the badge-gen feature and sometimes virtual gps. The statistic-banner and and the badge-banner are permanent on my profile page.

My favorite is the DT Matrix tool, then Profile statistic, after that I would choose the challenge checker.

The top feature is undoubtedly the Map Compare tool!

Map of challenge caches and maps of  counties are also great for planning!

Many thanks for this great site!

Lots to love, but being a programmer, I have to go with stats, stats, stats!

Let me pick these:

1. Favorite point statistics
This is a must look at for me when going abroad or spending some time away from home to find geocaches with a high quality or just the top tourist-attractions in a city.


2. Profile stats
A very comprehensive overway about the geocaching achievements. I really like it.

Map Compare (w filter "Archived")


I am so addicted to find "Archived cache", so every time I planned a route, I will check any "archived cache" in that area, by the log, I can guess whether the container was still at gz.

Of course, I can get an extra smiley too!

Unquestionably the speed for obtaining the different stats or filters and the fact to have no GPX to download or update contrary to GSAK ! cheeky
Map DT Matrix was a long time my favorite module.
Too bad that my Diamond badges Waymarks and Benchmarks can not be displayed and counted, otherwise it would be perfect ! wink

One more thing: The map showing challenge caches. I love this tool and I hoped since some years that this will be available one time, so thanks for that PGC !!!

Compare maps is without no doubt the most useful tool in pgc. I use it daily. Not only to look for buddys cachestatus on trips, but also:

- Search for caches with certain type, name, size or D/T in a certain area.

- Look for "free" space on the map if placing a new cache. (or free space if brute force a mystery :-)

- Look for archived, but still able to log caches.

“Look for archived, but still able to log caches” ⇒ I’d be interested to know more about that…

Challenge Checker is the No. 1 for me.
by Minos2003 (4.8k points)

For me it's the challenge checker tool, the variety of statistic, the possibility to find caches in choosen countries by hidden months (with the filters) and of course the great statistic overview (profile stats).

My favorite is the DT Matrix, BadgeGen updates all by itself and maps.

I love the stats. It is difficult to choose the best. Now frequently watch Top fouhd percent, challege checker and found missing cache to improve BadgeGen or meet the challenge.

As I am trying to color the world green the maps are my favourite. It is a way to show: Hænningsen was here :)
