Just found two new bugs concerning GPX import.

1) I get a lot of forcecloses after importing GPX files. I attached one of the files from /logs folder.

2) I exported a single multistage geocache (e.g. the one from above) and imported it again. The system tells me that it is already in the database and asks me if I want to skip the import, accept a duplicate or overwrite the existing one. I chose overwriting. Afterwards some waypoints of the geocache were in the database multiple times.

Hi menion,

sorry to bother you again but there is a new bug in the latest version released today. Uploading more than one fieldnote results in an error telling me to contact the support. Only one fieldnote gets transmitted to, the rest stays untouched on the device.

I didn't know about the long click option you mentioned. This makes it indeed easier than I thought it would.

What I thought about is:

With guide or navigation active on a geocache
1) click add new waypoint
-> and get the add waypoint window for the active geocache, not the one for global waypoints.

Or having the active geocache as a kind of preselected category in the global add waypoint window. Even though I guess this is difficult since the two windows look different (no picture an address input on the one for geocaches).

Anyway, I think getting the geocache add waypoint window by pressing the normal add waypoint button will upset other users. If having an active geocache as a separate category in the global add waypoint window is feasible I don't know.

I was taking about the "wave" effect. I wouldn't call it un-profesional more like not state of the art anymore... ;-)

the way you mentioned works just fine but needs four clicks. The one I had in mind needs only one click. Just thought it might be a nice feature.

when being on a multistage geocache I miss a function that creates a new waypoint that is associated to the geocache I'm currently "working" in. Working in terms of guiding  or navigation to. Is there any chance to add the active geocache to the list of categories or something similar?

when selecting the icon for a waypoint there is some kind of animation that I'd like to disable. Especially the one for geocaching icons isn't really smooth. Is there a chance of having a general option to disable these kind of animations in the app?

Thanks for the fast support!

I found another bug...
7) Updating an existing geocache results in wired order of logs.
Quote from: "menion"6. I cannot simulate it. May you export for me one GPX with one cache, to see where is problem in exported file?

Troubles & Questions / Latest Update and Geocaching

Hi all,

I love Locus for geocaching but unfortunately the latest update has a lot of really bad bugs. The ones I noticed I'd like to share...

1) Waypoints of a geocache can't be deleted at all.
2) Waypoints of a geocache can be modified on the map only but not in the description window of the geocache.
3) Waypoints of a geocache can't be navigated to from the description window of the geocache.
4) When editing a waypoint of a geocache it loses its icon.

5) While editing coordinates with NEW - FROM MAP no existing waypoints can be selected.

6) Exporting a geocache with more than 10 waypoints as GPX results in a strange GPX file. Importing the GPX file will give a geocache with 10 waypoints and (total number of waypoints - 10) waypoints not associated with the geocache.

I hope theses bugs can be fixed as they make Locus not usable for geocaching anymore.

Regards, Axel
