  1. Ah, that's interesting! I'll give this a look. At least it might give me the opportunity to look at some actual code

    Erm.. no.

    No coding required. It's just a reusable cartridge.


    I did actually write one like this myself a few years ago but never published it. I had a look for the source file this morning but bits of it are missing so I'd have to start from scratch again.



  2. Here's the original Reverse Geocache Wherigo http://coord.info/GC357G1 by -Waldmeister-


    Completing the Wherigo enables you to set one of your own. I actually created a 'family tree' of Reverse Geocache Wherigos showing which cache a player found in order to set their own and there are a few instances where the setter doesn't appear to have found one prior to setting one so it looks as though the codes might get handed around bit ;)



  3. Many cartridges I've played on my Galaxy S4 using WhereYouGo have a feature where the phone vibrates when entering a zone. I'd assumed that it did it automatically but when I tested cartridge I'm working on it did not do this.

    Is it something which has to be coded manually?

    Is it unique to a specific builder? (I use the Groundspeak builder)





  4. I still have to visit a site to download, so why is better from your site than from Wherigo.com?


    Because it will be somewhere with no/poor Internet access. I believe GPX files for new caches will be hosted on a local server and downloadable via a wifi connection. It makes sense to be able to offer the two Wherigo cartridges for download in a similar manor



  5. ...you could have sent your issues directly to Groundspeak, instead of kinda going against the TOU, calling out someone by name in the forums.


    In what way is that going against TOU?


    I can't see anything in the rules which says referring to another cacher is not allowed. This cacher obviously thinks it's fine or else he wouldn't do it in the first place :blink:



  6. With all normal cache types the cache owner has the ability [and responsibility?] to delete bogus logs. Is this possible with Lab Caches?


    We got an email the other day from xxxx asking for lab cache codes he had missed in Spain.


    He's logged 1 Giga and 2 Megas one of which didn't have any Lab Caches giving a theoretical maximum of 40 yet he has managed to 'find' 171!


    If Groundspeak want to maintain credibility of Lab Caches there ought to be a way of preventing cheating.

    I've found GC45CC too, and it didn't give me a souvenir when it was in Ulster.


    I'd guess that means it's definitely excluded from souvenirs, otherwise there's a whole lot of us that would have got it.


    No it doesn't!


    You logged a find on GC45CC in October 2013 when the cache page co-ordinates were in Northamptonshire.


    Phill100's finds were while the cache page co-ords were in Northern Ireland


    My theory still holds B)

  8. I suspect it's because GC45CC was at Carnanmore in Ulster in August when you logged several YOSMs


    This shouldn't happen though because GC45CC is on Moun10bike's 'Caches Excluded from Souvenirs and Statistics' list....


    Perhaps it's only excluded from stats and not Souvenirs




  9. After some deliberation, I've settled for a Garmin Nuvi 2598LMT-D


    One of the reasons I've opted for Garmin is that if the unit dies in the same way as the TomTom did (I'm no expert but I suspect it might have got fried by a voltage surge in the Portuguese hire car), I presume/hope Garmin will exchange it for a £30 fee as they do with handheld GPS units.


    TomTom want £70 to just look at it :(


    Thanks for the suggestions



  10. Yeah I saw on the TomTom forums that the GO series were useless. I had looked into the Via series as they seemed to be the closest match to our existing XL but the Via is also discontinued and I couldn't find anywhere which stocked the model I wanted.


    In the UK we've been making do the built-in TomTom in my Mazda6 but it really is a pain to use. I can enter co-ords manually but I have to type the whole lot right from 'N' every single time. It's not possible just to tweak the last few digits nor add POIs :(
