"Import lists" no longer works - endless circle instead

I call the 3rd party feature "Geocaching/Import Lists".

Instead of the overview of all lists, which I could import, I get an endless waiting circle. See screenshot.

I have reduced the number of lists in my account, just to be on the safe side, but this did not change anything.

I cannot say for sure when it worked last, but I would say that about 2 weeks ago I could still use it successfully.

Could the problem be somehow connected to the changes in the pocket query API, which were published recently?

Hello, this is a question for the add-on author Arcao. Probably best to post it on add-on web repository here.

Hello,

yes, it seems to be an issue of the Locus addon "Geocaching4Locus".

Can confirm behaviour.
Logout and login in the addon to geoacaching.com does not solve the problem.

Hello,

just checked the settings at groundspeak.
GC4L has access to the groundspeak api.

I created https://github.com/arcao/Geocaching4Locus/issues/136

I have no real hope that this will be solved by Arcao as Menion said in the thread for the other (now finally solved) problem, that Arcao is no longer active.

So probably another of these problems which will in the long run make Locus unusable for us geocachers :(

The very same happens to me, too.
It's caused by the latest GC4L update to version 3.0.8.

Until (or if) Arcao provides a fix, the solution is to go back to the previous GC4L version 3.0.7:

until there is a solution to the problem, the user can decide which function is more important to him

update geocache folders
or
import lists

Unfortunatly the decision you talk about does not really help.

Yes, we can see the overview of possible lists to be imported with the old APK.

But with the old APK the "update problem" was also reproducible when importing lists.
See my post from the September 16, 2022, 14:09:05 in your linked topic: "The problem is getting worse and worse. At first it concernced only mysteries, but these days I can neither update more than about 50 to 100 geocaches together nor import lists which contain more than a few caches."


So going back to the old APK does not help at all.

But at least I found a kind of workaround yesterday. The good old pocket queries still seem to work. And this allowed me to import some stuff.

Wait for the next Locus Map 4 (Beta) version, lists, pocket queries, or direct search&import are implemented now natively in the app.

Hello menion,

I think that, like me, many people still use Locus Map Classic (formerly Locus Map Pro). I currently have installed Version 3.63.1. Will be also implemented these functions you mentioned in Locus Map Classic or are they only reserved for version 4?

Hello Daigers,
sorry, but no major changes are implemented into Locus Classic, sorry. So only download of Pocket Queries download will be available.

Hello Menion,

it's a pity that support for LM classic is gradually being reduced. But when will the geocaching functions be in the productive version of LM4 and not just in the beta?
