GSAK is a geocache management program where you can edit the final waypoints, add notes or other auxiliary points, or import/export geocaches.
This add-on provides a link between GSAK where the geocaches are stored and Locus Map. With this add-on, you can view all geocaches, you have stored in GSAK, display their listing, and more. And all this offline without an internet connection.
The add-on allows you to import caches from db3 files from GeoGet for further work in the Locus Map application. If you use one file, the application will start loading the cache immediately. In the case of multiple files in a folder, the add-on will first offer the option of which file to import.
C:geo is an open source, full-featured, always ready-to-go unofficial client for geocaching.com and offers basic support for other geocaching platforms (such as Opencaching).
