Troubles & Questions / Re: How can i drop a TB with locus?
« on: April 26, 2014, 01:09:50 »
Hello,

Quote
"Fetch from" is actually (by Groundspeak) called " Grab it from ...". Or you mean the basic type of log - "Retrieve from ..." ?

Sorry for not being precise enough. I mean the basic type "Retrieve from <name of the cache>".

18.4.2014 - Locus 2.20.2.1

For really brave "Locusers"

changes compare to 2.20.2
...
....
- added support for drop of trackable items in cache without need to post a log (from menu > log trackables)
...
...

is it possible to add "visited" and "fetch from" a cache to "from menu > log trackables" too?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Does Locus Map Support .loc Files?
« on: April 13, 2014, 19:51:33 »
As you can see here loc files from geocaching.com are available for basic memeber. They do not contain all information of the geocache like the corresponding gpx-files you can download from groundspeak.com as a premium member.

So importing should work although the information they contains are realy very "basic".
More information can be found here.
Although it is  not  realy clear,  if locus supports loc-files for importing geocaches. Maybe the  information the  loc-file contains is not enough to import that  data as a  geocache.

Hello balloni55,

using locus pro 2.20.2 this it how it works:

(1.) Select the cache you want to drop the travelbug
(2.) Click on the "tree points" button in the right upper corner of the cache dialog
(3.) Select "Feldnotizen" (sorry,I only have the german version of the button captions present)
(4.) Select "Logge deinen Besuch"
(5.) Change the found status of the cache to anything you need (If you already found the cache select "Notiz schreiben")
(6.) Complete the form
(7.) Select the tab "Inventar" above the dialog below "Bestätigen"
(8.) Click the "Laden" button
(9.) The trackables in the cache an the trackable in your hands appear
(10.) Select the appropiate action in the "Keine Aktion" box for the travelbug
(11.) Log the cache by pressing "Bestätigen"

So it should work  ;).
I only have not find out how to write an individual "abgelegt"- or "besucht"-text for the travelbug.

I hope this helps.
So everything with locus pro 2.20.2 should work as expected .....

Hello balloni55,

I found some further information here.
In the chapter "How to" there is a subchapter called "Log trackable". There is mentioned:

Quote
f you need to log trackable within some cache, it's recommended to use methods described here, so directly during logging a cache.

Unfortunately the link here points to a page that does not exist  >:(.
But I am still searching for more information  ;) ....

Hello balloni55,

as far as I know you have to log the geocache where you want to drop your trackable.
If you have already logged that geocache as found you can write a note.
In that logging dialog there ist a possibility to drop the trackable (via a button I think).
I have Locus Pro not present at the moment but I will look at it as soon as possible.

As far as I know the groundspeak-api offers no possibility to drop a trackable without
logging / write a note to the correspondig geocache where it is droped in.

Wishlist / Support for geocache_logs.xml
« on: April 02, 2014, 15:19:27 »
Hello,

gcFieldnotes.txt in locus matches geocache_visits.txt on garmin devices for logging geocaches offline.

Would it be meaningful to implement something like gcFieldnotes.xml in locus with matches geocache_logs.xml on garmin devices as discussed here?
Maybe this could be the final solution to overcome the timezone problem when logging a geocache?
gcFieldnotes.xml should be an addition to the already existing gcFieldnotes.txt. Or, even better, the user should decide, which fileformat he would use for logging a geocache offline.

Unfortunately groundspeak do not support geocache_logs.xml for logging their caches so far as I know. But GSAK, my favorite tool for logging geocaches, do  ;).

@c.s.g.: perfect.

Did you tried first file in new test version? Because there was problem no. 1, which is fixed in this version and which helps on this file to correctly set "Found" flag.

No, I have tested it only with the "offical" Locus Pro Version 2.19.0 available via Google Play

@c.s.g.: I see there two issues. In you file are two marks that say that cache is computed and both not work.
1. issue is in Locus. Locus incorrectly handle types of waypoints in your file. I had to rewrite part of old code so now it will be fine. Anyway please rather test it. I also hope it won't affect work with waypoints at all :)

I thought it is better to test it with the realesad version only. If it work there, and you do not have to change anything in sourcecode, then there will not be any unwanted side effects caused by changig that code  ;).

But if you wish, I can  test it with the latest test version of Locus as well ...

c.s.g.

I have tested the first gpx file (GC-Home 2014-03-21.gpx) and the last gpx file (GC-Home 2014-03-23 06-12.gpx) using for import with the latest test version Locus Free 2.19.1.7.
Both imports works as expected.

Hello menion,

I have contacted the GSAK developer.
As the result there are to more attached gpx files:

(1) GC-Home 2014-03-23 06-08.gpx
Because of setting a checkbox within the export dialog of gsak the <gsak:wptExtension> are completly missing in this file.

(2) GC-Home 2014-03-23 06-12.gpx
Because of setting the correct version number within the export dialog of gsak the <gsak:wptExtension>-tags are now correctly embedded betweeen  <extensions> and </extensions> 

The result checking Locus Pro 2.19.0:
(1) still does not set the "Berrechnet"-flag.
(2) works  as expected!!

So you can reverse the sourcecode changes you made for me in issue 1 in order to avoid any unwanted side effects  ;).

@menion: thank you for the information. I will contact the gsak developers for issue 2. I hope I am able to explain issue 2, so it is clear for them.

If they fix issue  2, is it than necessary for you, to fix issue 1 as well? Or does the fix of issue 2 fixes issue 1 automatically?

Hello,

I am using Locus Pro 2.19.0.
For creating gpx-files with geocaches for importing in Locus Pro I am using GSAK 8.4.1.24.

Today i have recognized that the "Berrechnet"-flag is no longer set, when the gpx-file contains geocaches with corrected coordinates. That is the little red point in the right corner on the top of the mystery icon in Locus Pro is missing and the "Berrechnet" checkbox is not set for these caches.

I am quite sure this is working in earlier  versions of Locus Pro.

Not sure, if  this is an export problem caused by the newest version of GSAK or if it is an import problem caused by the newest version of Locus Pro, I attached an gpx file with one cache as an example.

Hallo TinaSun,

Danke auch dir für die schnelle Antwort. Bei c:geo geht man auf "Suche" und wenn man dort bei "Suche mit Koordinaten" wählt, gibt man eine beliebige Koordinate ein und das Gerät listet von den eingegebenen Koordinaten ausgehend 18 Caches im Umkreis auf

so etwas Ähnliches leistet das bereits von balloni55 angesprochene Add-On Geocaching4Locus für Locus. Dort kann man wohl hier nach beliebig vielen Caches (Default 20) im Umkreis einer bestimmten Koordinate suchen.

Das Add-On leistet wohl auch noch mehr, habe es allerdings selbst nicht installiert.

Hello stebu,

I just checked a couple of caches with 2 and 3 additional wpts, no problems here.
The attached GPX file has some errors, some of the angle brackets are still html-encoded:
&lt;p&gt;Additional Hidden Waypoints&lt;/p&gt;P149T72 - Parking&lt;br /&gt;N 47° 55.682 E 008° 30.995&lt;br /&gt;Von Mai bis in den Herbst leider gebührenpflichtig&lt;br /&gt;P249T72 - Parking&lt;br /&gt;N 47° 55.633 E 008° 30.709&lt;br /&gt;Von Mai bis in den Herbst leider gebührenpflichtig&lt;br /&gt;</groundspeak:long_description>

Code: [Select]
&lt; should be < 
and &gt; should be >

So there seems to be an error in your "process", Locus is working fine.

(1) This is an original GPX-file downloaded from geocaching.com.
(2) The additional waypoints for import into locus are not in the <groundspeak:long_description> although they are mentioned there in this listing as well. Waypoint information of that section is never imported to locus additional waypoints only to the long description ;).
(3) The GPX-file contains 3 <wpt> .... </wpt>  sections. The first contains the geocache information itself. the second and third the additional waypoint information of the parking area. I looks for me, that locus pro ignores the third <wpt>...</wpt> section for import.
