It has access to GC so you can download pq from GSAK
plus if you are doing a series you can write your page then hit GC button select Publish Logs & click Publish.. cool

I was trying my old way to log - well, C&P the log - with GC_LogCache (it takes the split screen right to the logging screen for which cache is highlighted automagically) but after playing with the "publish logs" option I figured out how to get it to work. And it worked flawlessly! Well, it worked once I figured how to set the date and mark things found - it really is designed to work with those field note things that GPSes do that phones don't - so the new template I wrote worked!!! Man oh man - I'm gonna be finished with logging tonight! Just gotta get cooking with GSAK when I get home tonight....

How do you do the logging from V8? That sounds like a nice feature. Already did a query inport and that was great.
There is a "Publish Logs..." option under the "gc.com access" tab. This lets you set templates for "Found it" results as well as DNFs and other log events.
The docs explain a little on setting up templates and getting the caches into the utility from GPS, file or query at http://gsak.net/v80/hs46070.htm
And since it uses a change in status to the caches so it knows to publish the logging templates for them, i had trouble figuring how to mark the caches as "found" and on what day on the Land Run for logging. If I had a Garmin Colorado or one of the others that logs a found date and time from the GPS along with fieldnotes, I would be set, but in my case i found that selecting all of the caches I did on one day in a GSAK view could be all set to found for a specific date using the "global replace" option under the "database" tab to change the "Last found by me" date to the date I wanted on the logs.
Once I was done with that I was able to fetch them as per the docs listed above and then edit the one or two I had special notes about before sending 499 caches to gc.com for logging and having it all done in minutes.
I also had GDAK in the field on my phone and see that he is building in fieldnotes capabilitues for GSAK when offline (seems c:geo and the gc.com app will both do it on-line), so i send him a donation to help that happen. In the meantime, this appears a powerful and awesome way to log any day with more than a few caches, so i have to ask - what apps handle off-line fieldnotes for android?

I tried to use the Get Geocaches & Refresh Cache Data functions and in both cases it got only about half of the caches they should have.
I mostly upgraded because I thought the new version would get Favorites in the PQs and would let me update my all Houston database without using the clumbsy 7 PQs method. Apparently it doesn't do either or I'm doing something wrong.
No Favorites show up after a PQ update, and the 6000 limit doesn't let me get all the caches in Houston (It doesn't reach 6000 either.).
