Summary
Abstract: GeoToad is an open-source query tool to query the geocaching.com website. It
supports exporting your results into a dozen or more formats such as GPX, HTML,
or VCF for your iPod. You can then take these query results with you on a nice
long print-out, import them into EasyGPS, transfer them to your GPS unit, or
even save the results onto your cell phone.
