I just had an idea and it looks not to bad so far. I setup my device not to shut off the screen while charging and then I started the GC Offlinizer once again - now it already as over 60% after more than one hour. Seems to be stable :) I've seen some errors but this could have other reasons...

So I guess the reason of my problem is that the systems goes in sleep mode. Since last update I configured my system not to optimize battery regarding locus. This seems not to help in this situation.

Maybe locus could be changed to keep the screen on while GC Offlinizer runs?

the GC Offlinizer is a great tool. But I have a little problems using it.

If I'm right the best way to get all pictures (spoiler and listing pics) I only have to click on 'use api' checkbox.

When I try to download pics for a few thousand caches it often stops and does not continue. When I restart the process it often happens again at a other percentage.

I don't know why it stops. If it has to do with the GC server or with locus. The network works fine.

Maybe adding a skip this cache button may help or (another) timeout.

A more verbose mode would also be fine to see on the list what file currently is downloaded.

Thanks Wolle

Thanks for all your thoughts. :)

They seem to work but are not quick enough. Pressing on the map center is not accurate enough for Geocaching. I still had hope that there is a kind of "hidden" function in the compass or satellite view to get it copied.

I'll have to think about and maybe I'll look for a third party app for this function.

Thanks, Wolle


I know a way to get the current coordinates into the clipboard. I just have to edit/add a waypoint and then it's an easy way. But:

Is there any easy way to copy my current position to the clipboard e.g. from the compass page or somewhere else? I need it often and so I'm looking for a comfortable way.

Thanks Wolle

when I open a geocache and then click on the line where coordinates are mentioned I get a popup to change the coordinates.
But this popup has empty entries on the left side where should be "N,S,E,W"

See attached picture.


Hey menion,

you make me a lucky man. THANKS !!!!   :D :D :D
Hi menion,

thanks for info. That's too bad. But maybe once a day it's possible  ;)


I mentioned that a Geocache, which is disabled AND has corrected coordinates, does not have the little asterisk on the right upper corner.

It's not so important to have this "fixed" but sometimes it would be nice to have this information.

Regards Wolle
Hey menion,

thanks for explanation. I hoped it would maybe be possible to change it in the config file manually.

I enable by default only Parking Waypoints to keep the map clear. I add Waypoints of a single Geocache when I do this one. So it would not be a problem for me ;) My problem is, that I don't see as it is now  ::)

I vote for filtering by favorites points :D

e.g. "more than x fav points"

is there a way to change the line which points to the waypoints that belong to a geocache? I almost can't see it.

Regards Wolle

when I use the guidance I have a very thin line pointing to my target. I'd like to make this line thicker. Is that possible?

Troubles & Questions / not able to use GSAK addon
December 02, 2015, 20:37:43
I installed the GSAK DB Addon. But I'm not able to see any caches from the database. I copied my Founds GSAK database (db3) to my phone (Android 6). It only contains found caches.

I pointed in the GSAK addon to this DB. I checked the box to show found caches. I've checked the box for live map.

The only thing that happens is that the Addon crashes regulary and not only one of the caches is displayed.

Any ideas ?
Cheers Wolle
