Synchronization between VGPS/Bookmark

Hello,
The two new features "import" and "export" of bookmark-lists are very interesting and practical.
But an even more interesting thing would be the automatic synchronization between PGC and GC (in each case for a VGPS / bookmark).
Thank you ;-)

I see this as very hard to implement. There are several cases that can not be solved.

  • One way sync could be achieved. But two way isn't possible. The reason is that we can not know if a geocache has been added to one of the sides, or removed from the other.
  • The next issue is that we can not do this in real-time. It would then have to be daily syncs or similar. Which in my opinion would ruin the use case, and make it too unreliable.

However, I like the idea, if it would be achievable with the API from Groundspeak.
