Hi menion,
if user import geocaches by GC-link, downloaded.gpx or PQ and open cache listing with available internet connection preparing on sofa the upcoming tour, listing photos are displayed. 8)
But these photos are not stored inside locus and this is deceptive! :(
On next tour with no internet connection (outdoor or in other country) these photos arenĀ“t available anymore, this is annoying and not logical. ::)

Is it possible to change this behavior? Images that were once visible are stored automatic and visible also without internet connection.

Of course, I know "Offlinizer" ;)

Hello balloni,

good question and little bit complicated answer.

Tab "listing" in geocaching screen - imagine this as completely independent web browser. In Locus, I only say something like "display here this web page" and about everything! take care Android itself. Well, I may modify a few parameters like allow to load images from internet or not, but not much.

Anyway I found a small "hack" how to do exactly what you wants. But this feature cause a small troubles and is just in beta test. To test it on your own, please edit in config.cfg parameter "dev_enable_auto_gc_offlinizer" and set it to "1". This should do what you expect. All images in listing will be automatically "offlinezed" in same way as use "GC offlinizer".

Let me know how it works for you ...

I remember there were problems with some reloading, sometimes is took a while till images were displayed. Also in cases of "listing" and "images" tab, I think that images are loaded twice (one for every tab) ... so not yet ready to publish
