  1. Use the old saying "KISS" Keep it simple. I am still using Windows7 and IE. When I try to access the new map, I get a beautiful blank page. And no, I'm not switching to Windows 10 or Google Chrome - so it's safe to say that my geocache count will remain as it was when they make the new map mandatory on 4/25.
  2. I think that it is safe to assume, that the map (as horrible as it is in my opinion) is here to stay. It's been over a week for some kind of a response from the "powers that be" and so far nothing of substance. There might be a few minor tweaks to it - but it is what it is. Us "old dogs" that use a GPS unit are still going to be able to play their game, but they have (again in my opinion) come closer to making their map as close to MUNZEE (sorry if I offend any MUNZEE players) as possible. I'm now waiting to see how they can merge it with Pokemongo.
  3. Reading the statement from the GS Lackey, it's either play with our bat and ball, or don't play at all since they are the only game in town.
  4. Thanks for bringing Project GC to my attention regarding the geocaching maps. I just took a look and I'll be using it for my search and planning now. No "funky" icons to look at. Groundspeak can keep their map and icons now. Don't give a rip.
  5. Why not give us an option as to whether we want to use the new map or the old map?
  6. My personal opinion of the new map icons is that it SUCKS. Why fix something that didn't need fixing.
  7. I've got the problem solved (at least for me). I'll archive all my caches - hence no more notifications. Then, I'll remove all the new cache listing notifications. When I want to cache, I'll just enter the coordinates where I am and look for caches I haven't found. Problem solved. It seems like all the little froggies in the lily pond don't have anything better to do than create a more unusable product. Just sayin!!!!!!!!!!!! :(
  8. You have to bring up the cache page and download from there - not the icon itself. One extra step
  9. As of now, keep the compatibility enabled. You can see the map and download a single cache. The bubble doesn't work, but if you click on the cache and go to the cache page, you can download it. Just one extra step, but it works.
  10. At the time of posting, No - I couldn't download a cache from the maps. Sorry for the delay in replying, but of all things, I was out seeking caches. Now, I can download a cache from the map by clicking on the cache name and downloading from there, but not from the bubble. Better than nothing and I'll get used to it.
  11. Well, the good news is that we can see the maps, the bad news is that we can't download a cache from them. I know that this is a roundabout way, but I used the maps and sent GPX files to GSAK and downloaded all of them at one time. Not ideal, but until a fix is figured out - that's how I'll have to do it.
  12. Thanks for the "heads up" on turning off the compatibility view settings. Got the maps back. Now, just have to wait and see what else might happen. :rolleyes: Didn't have to wait long. Yes, I get the maps back, but then my GPS is not recognized. Add geocaching.com back to compatibility settings and the map is blank, but the GPS is recognized. Oh well.
  13. Same thing for me. There is another thread in the forum with the same problem. My computer won't work, but if I use my wife's the map shows. Go figure.
  14. Just tried again with Google Maps and Leaflet. Still nothing. The funny thing is that it worked fine yesterday morning, but last night when I went to download a couple of caches - nothing. I just tried with my wife's laptop and hers isn't any better than mine.
  15. I'm not able to get the larger map page either. Just the blank screen with the geocaching.ccom in the upper left and my name in the upper right. Frustrating to say the least. Any help on this?? Using Windows7 and IE9.. I am: WEB11 You are:
