When you have the time play around with GSAK, you can filter your database for almost anything.
Like type of cache, size, terrain, difficulty, distance from anywhere, unavailable, when it was placed or when it was last found.

What I do is have a database of every cache in Massachusetts, that's 10450 caches now, I update it every 4 weeks.
It takes 11 PQs to get all the caches in Mass.
A guy I know in New Hampshire gives instructions in GSAK and PQs and he made a PDF file he called Pocket Queries & GSAK 101.
I recommend it to everyone.
Go here - Pocket Queries & GSAK 101 to download or see it.

As soon as you select the filter you have the option down about a third of the page--just uncheck the box and away you go

How do I filter them out on GSAK. I can't seem to find the setting for filtering out the found caches. Thanks

Apparently the explorists don't read the 'found' part of the GPX file.
You have to mark a cache as 'found' yourself as you find them.
For myself I never load caches I've already found to my 710 anyway so it's not a problem for me.
I just filter out my found caches on GSAK.

I'm a new owner of a Explorist 610. My problem begins when I download pocket queries from Geocache.com and load them into GSAK. I then pick the 610 as my GPS and download the caches to it. All the caches on the GPS are now as new caches. They don't show as "found" and "not found" as they do in GSAK. All are "not found"? I can do this the same way on my Garmin Oregon 550 by picking it to download to and the caches come out on the GPS divided just fine. I am running the lastest version of GSAK. Thanks for any help
