A new feature.
I just wonder if this note is gonna make it to my pocket query, otherwise it's useless.

Word is on the GSAk site is any data in the user note is not included in PQs, at least for a while. The data is stored online, however, so you could view it from any computer.

I agree, it is of little use if you can't get it in your PQ.

There are a few other features added, which are listed in the release notes.

Correct, final coords for puzzle caches, extra notes, whatever. no one else will see it.

Very little use for it until they add it as a field in a PQ.

I agree....not much to offer. However, I've made a note on one of my recent placements of what quantity the log will hold. Keep an eye on the finds and will know about when to replace the log.

That is a good idea - notes for your own hides....

I think it may be useful for multi-stage mystery caches where each has a part of the puzzle like Mapachi's James Bond series. I sometimes lose my hand written notes.

Until cachers come along with labels and stamps.

...I agree. One of my pet peeves. Came across one nano log that that the signer took up a quarter of it leaving a message. (knowing that you love nanos). Although nice to see some of them in notebook-type logs.
