¡Bienvenido Mexico!

Mexico joins our growing list of country maps on the Customize Profile > Other Maps page. The new map will track your progress caching through all 31 Mexican states and the "Distrito Federal" of Mexico City.


As with all new sections, if you'd like the "Mexican States I've Cache In" section to appear on your geocaching.com profile, remember to upload your My Finds PQ first to generate the latest images and then do a one time copy/paste of all your profile HTML from the Export Profile page over to your geocaching.com About field on your Settings page.

Please Contact Us with any questions, problems, or suggestions!

Have You Found a Lab Cache? Make Sure To Enter Them on MyGeocachingProfile.com!

Lab caches are an experimental cache type sometime found at Mega-Events. They count towards your total finds but currently are not included in your My Finds Pocket Query. That means mygeocachingprofile.com won’t automatically know about them and might get your total find count wrong!

Fortunately, there’s a way to enter your lab caches on the mygeocachingprofile.com site. Just go to the Customize Profile page > Additional Caching Information section and you’ll find a tool to enter your lab caches. All you have to do is pick the date you found one. You can enter the same date more than once if you found many on the same day. Then the next time you upload your My Finds PQ, your lab caches will automatically be included in your find stats including your milestones and most well rounded day stats.

Do Some of Your Cache Finds Show the Wrong Date?

Have you ever had a problem where mygeocachingprofile.com showed the wrong find date for one of your caches? This can mess up GeoStreaks, Day of the Year challenges, and the Most Well-Rounded Day stat.

This problem can happen for two reasons:
  1. You haven’t set your timezone on the site. Set your timezone on the Customize Profile page in the General Settings section. Then upload your My Finds PQ again and see if it fixes the problem. The timezone is needed to convert the find dates/times in the My Finds PQ to the time where you live.
  2. Your My Find PQ file has the wrong date/time for a cache. Even after adjusting for your timezone, sometimes we’ve found My Finds PQs that have the wrong date for a cache! This is frustrating, BUT you can fix it easily. Just go to the cache page on geocaching.com, delete your original “Found It” log, and then create it again. The next time you download a My Finds PQ, the problem should be fixed.
If you ever have this problem and can’t figure out which cache is causing a problem, just email me at contactus@mygeocachingprofile.com and I can help you!

Are You a Jasmer, Fizzy, or DeLorme Hunter?

If you’ve found a Jasmer, Fizzy, or DeLorme cache, you’ll be awarded a special GeoAchievement badge! However, it’s possible that I don’t know about the cache you found. If you’re not getting credit for one of these challenge caches, email me using the site’s contact form http://www.mygeocachingprofile.com/contact.aspx and I’ll add it to the master list right away. I actually rely on the community to give me a heads up about new Jasmers and Fizzys out in the wild.

Thank you so much to those adventurous cachers who help keep this list updated!

You can see the site’s full list of Fizzys here:
