Export GPX

This is where you can bundle up a bunch of caches for sharing with others. GPX is a standard file format for exchanging Geocaches among applications and devices. If you have a list of caches or a map view showing caches, you can generate and send a GPX file as we will soon see. Let's start from a list.

Tap the ••• in the title bar. You will be prompted to specify how much you want saved and the choices are: All Caches, Visible Caches, and Highlighted Caches. Make a choice and you go to a screen to define characteristics of the GPX.

Enter a name for the generated GPX file. This will become the name of a generated zip file that is the result of the export process. You can see how many Geocaches will be in the export.

Then there are several toggles to control options on what goes into the GPX file.

Include Logs: If you want stored logs for the cache included.
Include GSAK Extensions: If you want various GSAK extensions to be used. For example, you need this if you want to include Favorite points
Include Private Data: Some data like corrected coordinates for a solved puzzle and your Cache Notes are things you might not want to share with others. However, there are cases, like when you are team caching, that having the corrected coordinates available to all can be handy.
