My wife switches from a skinny 'girly' case for her iPhone to a heavy Otterbox case when we go geocaching. The Otterbox case has a lot of padding, adds a screen protector and claims to be waterproof. Just a thought that you might not need to use a different phone, just get a rugged case for when you need it.

Thanks for the reply. I have emailed Geocaching4Locus for their attention. I suspect that a recent change to the API may have triggered this problem.

I've noticed something odd while using Live Map and puzzles/multi's with corrected coordinates.  I don't know if it's a Groundspeak API limitation or a bug in Locus.

  • I had solved a puzzle cache and updated the coordinates on the web site.
  • The solved coordinates were a significant distance away from the original posted coordinates.
  • I was only using Live Map with Locus.  The cache was not stored offline.
  • On the Locus map screen, the cache icon does not show on the map. See screenshot #1. The solved cache icon should be where the center crosshair is.
  • If I zoom out so that the map screen now includes the original posted coordinates and the corrected location, the cache icon now appears in the corrected location.  In screenshot #2, the cache now shows just below the center crosshair.

Is this a Locus bug, or just a limitation of the Groundspeak API?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Can't access Dropbox
« on: October 06, 2017, 20:42:12 »
Thanks for the info. I was able to successfully import my GPX by selecting it in the Dropbox app and then choosing Locus in the "open with" dialog that popped up. I'm so glad to have found a usable work-around.

Troubles & Questions / Can't access Dropbox
« on: October 05, 2017, 04:21:49 »
Using Locus Pro 3.25.5
I've been Locususing with Dropbox for a long time now.  Today, I get an error message,
"Whoops, a problem  v1_retired" when I want to import from Dropbox.

I logged Locus out of Dropbox and logged back in again.  I get the "allow" prompt and get the same error message as before.  I can access Dropbox from another geocaching app, so I know my login and permissions are correct.

What is the problem here?

Troubles & Questions / Odd problem with Field Notes
« on: September 27, 2017, 17:06:14 »
I had an odd problem with Field Notes yesterday.  I always use "Upload Field Note" option when logging geocaches.  Later, I go online and add and embellish my logs and post them. Then I delete the field notes from Locus and update the geocaches in the Points list.  This has always worked well for me.

Yesterday, I inadvertently left the Log Type as "Found" when I posted a DNF log. I have done this once or twice in the past, and just corrected it online before posting.  After deleting the Field Note from Locus and updating the list, everything would show properly.

Yesterday however, the two geocaches I made this mistake with are still showing up on the Locus map with smileys, even though the log type is DNF.  I tried some corrective steps, but they aren't working.  See my steps and results below.


The red circle highlights one of the caches with the problem.  In Locus as well as online, there is a single log with log type DNF.  Yet it shows a smiley on the map.  It shows with a smiley in the List view, too. There are no saved logs or field notes in Locus.




This is the log itself in Locus.  Again, all field notes have been deleted from Locus




Next, I posted a new (second) DNF field note in Locus.  Locus now shows the DNF on the map, as well as in the List view.




I did an Update in the list, everything is still good.  I deleted the Field Note in Locus, and the smiley came back, even if I did an Update in the list view again.  As I mentioned before, I have made this mistake a couple times in the past, and just deleting the Field Note in Locus after correcting the log online and then updating the list would always take care of this.  Now, it does not work.

This appears to be something new with 3.25.5.  I am using the 'Locus - Addon FieldNotes' v1.4.6.2, if that is significant here.

Troubles & Questions / Multi-select only selects first waypoint

Using 3.25.5.  Selected several waypoints and tap Delete icon. It only deletes the first one. See the screen shots.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Track recording question

I was thinking that it had something to do with the number of trackpoints or something like that.  Thanks for the clarification.

Number of track monitoring items - defines number of visible track monitoring items in a grid on the panel.

I don't know what this means. What is a track monitoring item?

Troubles & Questions / Track recording question
« on: September 04, 2017, 03:22:25 »
In the track setup menu I don't understand the option "Number of track monitoring items".  I have tried changing that option, but I can't see what difference that makes. The Help File didn't answer that question for me, either.  Can someone explain what the difference would be between setting that to a high or low value?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus bug: Copy from Live to List
« on: July 05, 2017, 22:30:21 »
Ah, not a bug then.  Just a difference of opinion on how it should work. At any rate, now that I know what causes the issue that I had, I can watch for it and turn them on for viewing afterwards.

Thanks for the response.

Troubles & Questions / Locus bug: Copy from Live to List
« on: June 28, 2017, 00:09:36 »
I'm using V3.24.3, but this bug existed before this.  I just learned how to replicate it while playing with the update.

I'm viewing an offline list on the map.  Turn on Live, and I see a couple new caches pop up nearby. Select each new cache to open the description and select Copy To (my offline list).  The next time I open Locus (with Live off), the new caches are not showing on the map.  When Locus copies them to the offline list, they are marked with 'do not view'.  The eyeball selector is crossed out.  I think when an item is copied moved or imported, it should default to View ON.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Create / edit geocache user note?

Very nice. I mistook that option for Write Note instead of Personal Note. Thanks for the help.

Troubles & Questions / Create / edit geocache user note?
« on: April 16, 2017, 16:24:24 »
Is it possible to create or edit a geocache personal user note? I can't find how to do that if it exists. If not, I wish it were possible. I use that feature often.

Nice <!-- s:idea: -->:idea:<!-- s:idea: -->  As I have quite a few aerial maps, it would be most useful to be able to display some sort of "hybrid" by overlaying i.e a streetmap or topo ontop. For instance, being able to mix an aerial with a topo to view altitude curves would be the best thing since sliced bread.
My garmins do this, and it's awesome. BirdsEye aerial overlaid on a topo or OSM map plus tracks and routes on top of those.
