1.1. Benefits of Geocaching Premium
[Updated January 2017]
The support of the Premium community is a big part of what keeps this game going. Premium members gain unlimited access to all of Geocaching.com and the Geocaching® app’s best features. It’s our way of saying thanks for making geocaching possible!
What Premium supports:
In 2000, Geocaching.com started as a hobby site with 75 geocaches. Today, it’s home to nearly 3 million geocaches placed worldwide. These caches are collectively logged 100 million times each year. That’s 100 million moments of discovery, exploration, and adventure to be enjoyed and shared by family and friends all over the world.
Here are just a few of the efforts Premium membership makes possible:
- New features for Geocaching.com and the Geocaching® app — not to mention ongoing maintenance and improvements!
- The Authorized Developer program, which provides access and support to developers making geocaching web and mobile apps.
- Stellar support and education for the millions of geocachers around the world.
Geocaching HQ remains a strong, independent organization. This company is committed to building the best tools and services for geocachers to create, share, and play this game.
