Hi all,

What I was afraid of since the day my wife an I started using Locus our geocaching adventures, has finally happened. The GSAK add-on seems to be broken in this latest release  :(

The live-import feature stopped working, and manually importing caches from the database does show the normal pop-up counting the caches-to-be-imported, and then it shown a tiny empty dialog for less than a second and nothing happens.

We have used Locus, with the GSAKadd-on, for two years now and we were really, really happy with it. It is without doubt the best option for geocaching there is. Locus as such is great, the add-on geocaching for Locus adds value, but the combination with GSAK was perfect for us.

Just copy a database to your phone and you're ready to go. Accessing geocache information at locations without internet is no problem. While making a long daytrip across Europe you can see all geocaches along the route even if you change plans, and there's no limit to the number of geocaches it shows (as long as they are in your database). Need I say more  ;)

In the past, I have looked into the code of the add-on, hoping I might be able to bring it back to live once it would die. However I have no experience in developing for Android and developing add-ons for Locus. Also I couldn't find any relevant 'beginners' documentation to get started: what IDE to use for Locus add-on development, how to set it up for development of Locus add-ons, how to test an add-on, .... Without that there's no hope I can fix this myself in the minimal amount of time I can spent on it.

For now we hope it is a little unintended issue in the latest release, which will be fixed in the next one. If it's the definitive end of the GSAK add-on, we're in trouble :(
