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.

Simply that it gives me a lot of unknown/hidden statistics... Almost every time I look at my stats I discover something new to aim for. It's a great motivation enhancer!

Virtual GPS - for planning trips and quickly getting geocaches stashed into a GPX.
You did it how it should have been done in the first place by groundspeak. Fantastic work!

Since you asked for my most favorite thing I cannot name all the other things I like a lot... the "Discover TBs" tool, Challenge Checkers, "Solved Mysteries" Finder and so on... laugh

And since you also did not ask for what I would wish for... I also cannot write: a cache logging tool ... Not to get me wrong: You would not have to write my logs cool ... but editing (while displaying the geocache data) and automated logging of fieldnotes would be cool.

aha? Warum ein DownVote?
OK? Why downvote?
human translation: “maps of counties, and the possibility to search for possible caches to find within these counties”

I started out by using profilestats and now using more and more features. Comparing maps is a nice feature if your about to go out geocaching with a friend.

I use almost every feature by daily basis, but the most handy tool must med "not found caches"

I really like the project 360 degrees. Always I imagine where the user has traveled everywhere.

Challenge checkers on the map.

When going into a new area you can immediately see what Challenge caches there are and which ones you meet the requirements

I can't name one thing, because there are several functions I like a lot. Of course the extensive statistics, but also the D/T-search-tool and the challenge checkers. And I like also the different possibilities to look for good caches in regions other than the home zone.

What I want most:
- Friend tracker - Their latest Finds List at Project-GC. (WIP)

My most favorite thing is the speed.

For example the profile stats. I still use the macro for stats and badges provided by GSAK. Main reason is the fact that I own caches that have two owners. In GSAK you can change the owner ID.  As soon as this option is avalible in P-GC I will use them.

Other thing is the speed. When I use a macro in GSAK I can get my self a cup of coffee and still have to wait. Using P-GC it is ready in an eye-wink

My "most favorite thing" is the "Custom Filter". It's a really helpful feature to find exactly what you want :)

I found it very easy to gather info that was needed for a series on cache find/hide stats. Made the series a lot easier for me :D

My favorite are the checkers. Now I don't have to go through my stats by hand.

I do love PGC! First the solved mystery map, then all the statistics where I can follow my progresses.

And now! I have found the virtual gps. And...... I've found that I get all the attributes and favourite points to my GPS by the gpx-file through the virtual gps. No more PQs smiley. The virtual is wonderful. I hope that it will soon come a tool to update directly from GCs caches too.

The most favourite thing for me is, that the programmers spend endless times and energy, so we have a extremely good tool for our hobby.

We canot say often enough "thank you guys" for all their work!
