    Note that The Official App calls everything a "List" regardless of whether it's a List or Pocket Query.

    The list has "last modified" in small text underneath it.
    The PQ has "last generated" in small text underneath it.
    (Or whatever the correct English translation is, it says something similar to that in Dutch)

    That's how you can tell the lists and PQ apart in the official app.
    The PQ from the list was generated without issues.

    Lists load very slowly this morning

    I found out it was 1 Wherigo at the top of my list that refused to download. (also when trying to open the cache itself to view the full details)
    After removing it from the list the rest downloaded without issues.

  3. Samsung S21 Ultra

    Android 11

    Version: 8.57.0


    To add some:

    • Data usage is high, even when using offline lists
    • The app hangs for a few seconds when submitting a log (To give a idea: I've had a couple of android warnings telling that the app was unresponsive asking me if I wanted to wait or kill it)
      • Even more when there is a image attached to the log
      • The screen might turn black or it will just hang on the "Continue" page after submitting the log
    • Images are rotated by the app when they shouldn't be (e.g. standing images get rotated to be horizontal)
    • The app seemed to be really slow when I had several  offline lists stored on my phone (I'm unable to test this and removing all of the offline lists has not solved the "hanging" issue when submitting logs


    • Downloading offline lists has improved, I no longer need to retry 10 times before a list is downloaded


    • Would it somehow be possible to share offline maps with other apps?
      • I have OsmAnd+ with the OSM offline maps for halve of Europe.
        • I can load the PQ's into the OsmAnd app to navigate to them. But I would like to use the maps of OsmAnd in the geocaching app.
          (I have no idea if this is even allowed in the Android access/rights structure)
      • Or when you have a offline map stored in Google Maps, can you use that when you select Google Street in the geocaching app

  4. I wanted to search for a specific attribute around Antwerp Belgium


    The preview shows the correct city and the caches listed are indeed near Antwerp in Belgium


    But when I click display on map

    https://www.geocaching.com/play/map?ot=city&st=Antwerpen, Flanders&lat=51,21989&lng=4,40346&r=30&u=metric&zoom=12&att=44

    I get the map for Flanders, Louisiana and no caches


    Tested on:
    Chromium Version 91.0.4472.114 (Official Build) snap (64-bit)

    Firefox 90.0 (64-bit)
    Kubuntu 21.04


  5. I noticed yesterday that the app is displaying a incorrect number of souvenirs.
    I checked again this morning and nothing has changed
    The app only shows 50 and the website shows 289

    Samsung S21 Ultra

    Android 11
    App Version: 8.53.0

    I've tried logging out and back in and pulling down to force a refresh, still says 50

  6. Hi,

    Is there something wrong with the website at the moment?
    It's really slow and keeps logging me out.
    While writing this I got kicked out again and now it's not allowing me to login at all

  7. I just tried to help someone who no longer has access to the original email address and was unable to add a second email address as well.
    We keep getting a error that the password is wrong even after successfully logging in with said password.


    We tried on Firefox 89.0 and Edge 91.0.864.41

    Whether you own a physical cache, an EarthCache, Virtual Cache, or Event Cache—you can now archive your cache directly from the Geocaching® mobile app. Archiving a geocache permanently removes it from the app and from Geocaching.com. This action cannot be undone.

    The Dutch translation of the logtype is "Archived" (past tense) instead of "Archive"
    Or should it be "to archive"?

    As far as your other claims and assumptions about Geocaching HQ's motives are concerned, it would be appreciated if you could stop spreading unfounded claims like this that cause angst for other players.

    To be clear. I'm not claiming anything. It was purely based on my feelings.

    But I will tone down my assumptions and try to stick to the facts when reporting bugs


    It's just that something similar happened at work with a software supplier who ignored our bug reports and than introduced a new feature to "replace" the old one which didn't have the same functionality which gave us troubles with customers.

    So Sorry, I might have overreacted a bit.

    Thank you for reporting this. We have passed this along to the Engineering team.

    Week 3 since I reported this bug and the it's still there.


    It's starting to feel like this is an attempt by HQ to push everyone to the newer search map.

    Like they want everyone to use newer features so they're not giving any priority to fixing older features which they break when implementing the new features.


    I wouldn't dare try this at work. To introduce a new feature, breaking an existing feature and than ignore the bug reports for 3 weeks.

    As we experiment and attempt to offer updates quickly, we expect some improvements to happen in steps and perhaps a bit of instability along the way. We are okay with this as it allows us to learn and build better tools faster.

    Will further updates on the Adventure Lab app be given here or in the release notes section?

    'An Adventure requires that a player travel to specific locations or perform specific activities in the real world. Players are not allowed to use apps, devices, programs, or any other means to misrepresent their device’s location for any purpose in the Adventure Lab® mobile app.

    You mean this? Screenshot_20210510_141456_com.groundspeak.react.adventures.thumb.jpg.7bb94cff8b737276eb98aaa4dde480ab.jpg

    Is the message about actions in the past, even tough the text is in the present?

    Is it an issue to have a fake gps app on your phone?
    (I program as well and sometimes need to test GPS functionality in the browser)

    some of the decisions we make will favor welcoming new audiences, rather than trying to integrate Adventure Lab into the existing geocaching game

    Wouldn't it be better at that point to completely separate adventure labs from geocaching?
    Looking at the original purpose when they where introduced and how much labs are not geocaches why integrate this into geocaching at all wouldn't it be better of as a separate game?

    Some feedback:

    • Add multi language support for both the text and the questions. (I had to shorten my questions/text to have enough room to add English and German to my lab cache besides Dutch)
    • Maybe a different icon for a partially completed labcaches?
    • Notify owners when their lab is played or when a log is placed.
      • I created a labcache last year and have not really looked at it since because there is no reason to. It feels kind of empty to create a labcache because there is no further interaction like with geocaches where you can read the logs

    Same thing happening to me. When will this be resolved? Trying to plan a trip and have limited time to do so.

    Same here. There is a new Geotour in the Netherlands which I want to start with this weekend (72 caches).

    Because of this bug I tried using the search map to complete my planning which I found to be a horrible experience.

    Please fix the browse map as the search map is not suited for this kind of planning and it requires more clicks to do the same tasks
