Waypoint management software allows you to keep lists of geocaches on your computer. Depending on your computer setup, you could download waypoints in GPX format to your GPS and cache descriptions to your PDA. This saves you from re-typing coordinates and printing out huge volumes of paper.

Overall, Aussie cachers prefer GSAK, partly because it's made by Western Australian geocacher ClydeE, but mostly because it works well! The Geocaching Australia Forum has a support thread on GSAK. The beauty of GSAK is that it is created by a programmer that caches, rather than a cacher that programmes.

The most popular waypoint management software packages are:
