  1. When I renewed the date was reset immediately, as I recall that was always the case except for 1 time a few years ago. I got a reply from support that the credit card is only pre-authorized and will be charged on the renewal date. I was not on auto-renewal before. So I choose to renew manually, choosing the auto-renewal option (no other possibility). When I look now, auto-renewal is enabled. So when I understand it correctly, they checked my credit card and changed my account into auto-renewal. So it should renew within a week automatically. On the other hand, they have sent a bunch of mails welcoming me with my premium membership... Very very confusing... I am surely going to check my credit card... -quote- Thank you for contacting Geocaching HQ and we apologize for any confusion. Your Premium Membership was pre-authorized, but you won't actually be charged for the membership until your current Premium membership expires on 25 Jul 2016. At that time, the expiration date on your membership will update. -end quote-
  2. I renewed my premium membership today and also noticed the change to auto-renew. After paying with Mastercard and receiving the confirmation e-mail, the next renewal date was not updated! (still the old date) So I think there is something wrong with the payment process. I opened a support ticket with no response until now. So I advice everybody to carefully check all dates after renewing!!
  3. Vermoedelijk heeft het iets te maken met de instellingen van het coordinatenstelsel. In mijn oude Magellan staat dit in de setup menu / Coord system (primary) op Latitude/Longitude en DEG/MIN.MMM (of met andere woorden, graden + decimale minuten). Dit is de meest gebruikte instelling voor het geocachen. Google Earth gebruikt echter DEG/MIN/SEC waarbij het decimale gedeelte van een minuut in seconden is opgeven (dus 0,5 minuten is 30 seconden). Verder moet je ook checken dat de Map Datum is ingesteld op WGS84. Ik zou je verder ook aanraden om een accountje aan te maken op het Belgische geocaching-forum op www.geocaching.be. Hier ga je zeker alle hulp krijgen. Dit Groudspeak-forum wordt maar door weinig Vlaamse cachers gevolgd.
  4. The system locates me in Germany although I am living in Belgium... Nice feature, but wouldn't it be an option to use the home coordinates entered in the users profile ?
  5. Stany, Ik zou u aanraden om naar de www.geocaching.be website te surfen, en u daar op het forum te registreren. Op dit forum zitten vrijwel alle Belgische geocachers. Daar kan je dan best je vraag opnieuw stellen. Er wordt regelmatig een dag georganiseerd voor nieuwe cachers, om dan samen met een paar ervaren mensen het veld in te trekken.
  6. Hi, Briefly, the text says that on a cache maintenance, they discovered that the location was destroyed and that they would search for another location. The box (and your TB in it) was not lost. So that's good news for you I think!

    Metric system

    It is indeed something to look at. With the PDA setup as metric measurement, the cartridge instructs to go further for 50 meter, but distance is always shown in feet. It should be possible to show it in meter also.
  8. Een cacher die een TB in bezit heeft kan die ten altijd overnemen, ofwel uit een cache, maar ook rechtstreeks uit "de handen" van een andere cacher die de TB nog niet gedropt heeft (wat hier dus blijkbaar gebeurd is). Op zich is dit dus niet zo erg. Opmerking: registreer je best ook op het Belgische forum (www.geocaching.be); hier ga je veel meer respons krijgen aangezien maar weinig Belgen het Groundspeak-forum volgen.
  9. Dear abchan, I posted a link to your message on the local Belgian forum. DiKri
  10. On the geocaching.com website with the overview of pocket queries. Then clicking on the name of the query. It's a problem with the website, not the result of the query. Strange enough, the query itself runs and gives the expected results, but you can't open the definition of it. If you copy the query, the copied result gives the same error.
  11. I have a problem opening some of my pocket query's giving following error: Server Error in '/' Application. Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Noddy, I will copy your message on the local Belgian forum.
  13. Belleman, we wensen je veel succes toe! Hopelijk komen we je ooit eens op het veld tegen en gaat er dan een belletje rinkelen

    Please take a look at the Belgium Dutch/French geocaching website http://www.geocaching.be where you will find all extra info in the classroom.
  15. Hi Wolfbait. There are about 1500 caches in Belgium. Please look at www.geocaching.be where you will find a local Belgium forum. If you post your question over there, you will certainly get an answer.
