ah sorry, I forget to mention how to work with that "backup file"

So, to fix problem with logging a caches

1) download file from attachment and put it to Locus/backup directory
2) start Locus and then start menu > more > Backup manager
3) choose Restore and pick this file
4) check Settings and after that, just restart Locus (it should be done automatically)

When I added a POI by searching with Google Places the name field was filled with HTML markup (i.e., &amp; <b> ... </b>, etc.).

On a related subject:
The Google Places search respects the current area I am viewing and offers me results in its vicinity (try searching for "Hilton" while viewing San Francisco). When I use the standard search ("address and place") with the same term "Hilton" the results I am being offered are spread all over the USA. Could you please make the OSM search behave more like the google search concerning local proximity? The same holds true for the Geonames search.

Thank you!
(tested with current release)

hmm, I miss that it's already 1.0.2. So even "memberonly" is from this new schema? Is it already official or it's just some "beta"?
I'm trying to find out the status of 1/0/2.
So far, it looks bad. PQ's do not use it. You cannot set higher than 1/0/1 in your geocaching profile.
But "customcoords" would be a nicer solution to mark own coordinates than a final waypoint, IMHO.

Seems this happen to users, that never logged a cache before with current version of Locus. So not to current users, but only to new one (or users that do not used this feature for a long time).
I can't confirm this. I use this functionality quite often.

oki, thanks for info. I this case, I'll prepare fixed version sooner then in the end of week

@PeterPablo: html codes removed, truth is they have no sense. Anyway even if your "search suggestion" sounds good, I'm unable to do this, because Google API do not allow such request.

@stebu, balloni: so from where comes this new beta specification for Geocaching extension for GPX 1.0.2?

I do not know about 1/0/2 (Balloni?)
But I remember that a GS lackey gave a link to 1/0/1 on a conversation forum. But even that was not official.

BTW I can't generate the red star? I have included a final waypoint to my GPX exactly the same as a test cache that I exported from Locus?

It is the other way round. Google already behaves good, meaning that it does respect the currently displayed area.
The standard search by Locus (probably based on nominatim) though does NOT respect the currently displayed area and offers results from almost "everywhere". Are you able to improve that search?

This should probably be discussed in a separate topic since it is no regression from the current version.

@PeterPablo: hmm separate topic is usually better, but leave it for now. You're correct. Nominatim (used by MapQuest) has optional parameter to specify prefered area for search. So added

@Balloni, Stebu: oki, so I'll leave it for now, till 1.0.2 will be official. Btw. how is it possible that you see smiley as icon and also star for "computed"? Because smiley should be only one what you should see.

Great! This will certainly improve the quality of search results. Acutally this behaviour annoyed me from the begining and only recently I noticed that the Google Search returns more meaningful results. I only brought this up because of the HTML markup "annoyance". So -- thank you very much!
