In this lesson, we will look at the differences between the LOC format and GPX formats, and why a Premium membership at is key to getting the most out of GSAK.

  • LOC files are largely limited to cache name, code, cache owner and lat/long, and can show erroneous information in GSAK. This is the only format available to free accounts at
  • GPX (GPS eXchange Format) gives so much more data for GSAK and allows you to become a true “power user”
    • Pocket Queries come in GPX format.
  • Bottom line – if you want to harness the full power of GSAK, get a Premium membership!
