A year in review: powered by Premium

When Geocaching.com was founded by three friends some 17 years ago, who would have guessed that geocaching would grow to a community of millions around the world?

It’s thanks to Premium members that we can maintain the global listing service on Geocaching.com, continue improving our mobile app, make data available to partner apps, provide community support, and build new tools for geocachers. As we reflect back on the past year, we’ve created a fun timeline to showcase all we’ve accomplished together in 2017!

Latest addition to the Dashboard and Profile makes this project a wrap

The new photo will only appear on the new version of the Profile and Dashboard on web.

For cache owners who have used the page for a long time, the changes might take some getting used to.
