Basic vs Premium geocaching.com Users

There are some major differences between Basic and Premium members.

Basic Members

Basic geocaching.com members pay nothing to use the geocaching.com services but have certain limits on what they can do. The main limitations on Basic members are:

  • Limit of 3 full cache downloads per day
  • Limit of 10,000 lite caches per day
  • Cache types viewable are traditional and events
  • Caches designated premium only are not available
  • Cannot award favorite points
  • Pocket Queries are not available
  • Online lists are not available

Premium Members

  • Limit of 16,000 full cache downloads per day
  • Limit of 10,000 lite caches per day
  • View all cache types including Premium only caches
  • Award favorite points
  • Pocket Queries created on geocaching.com and downloaded in Cachly.
  • Online lists

Lite vs Full Cache Download

Lite caches only include basic information about a cache such as the title, terrain, difficulty, size and coordinates. Full cache data includes hint, description, attributes, waypoints, and logs.

NOTE: These limitations are from the geocaching.com  Memberships are through geocaching.com and not Cachly itself.
