Being fairly new to this, I guess I've not had much chance to consider what 'cool tools' would be useful and I guess most of the following will be fairly 'standard', but here goes...
Listing caches by area (suggestions might be US states, UK Counties - Like the areas that come up when you swap to the 'England' map)
Listing cahes by difficulty rating.
A quick way to download a selection of cache lat/long in, say, WPT or LOC format, rather than downloading them one at a time.
Some way of plotting the movements of hitch hikers, or Travel Bugs, on a map (the one on geocaching doesn't seem to work for me)
Also, some way of listing where a bug has been (I guess that will be a duplicate of the one on geocaching.com, but again, I've not been able to get it to work for me yet.
How about a 'walk order' showing, for each geocacher, the route taken around the various caches?
I'll not be unhappy if these are not feasable, I tend to be a users of systems rather than being able to dream up new options.
