  1. Yet again the mapping features have been disrupted with this release!! On an Android tablet when clicking on the View Larger map on a cache page all it does is to display your home location NOT the cache location you are looking at!! PLEASE do not release software that has not been fully tested with Premium members..... Its all rather annoying...

    Error 500

    This is rather annoying and should be easy to fix surely? If we click on anyone of our friends "All Geocache Finds" if they have an apostrophe in their caching name you get an "Error 500" but if their caching name is simple with no apostrophe it works as it always has. There is nothing worse than having a release of new software forced upon us only for "bugs" to surface shortly afterwards ....and it takes days if not longer to fix..... Why?
  3. Jim, Many thanks..... of course as soon as you mentioned Greasemonkey (or similar) I remembered how I have edited it before. Now works a treat and I did not have to add the OS map Bing Key again either... Super job.....
  4. Hi Jim, being rather thick today..... just cannot remember how to amend the GME source code as you have suggested. Can you explain please? Many thanks Wendykmj
  5. Mellers, Yes we know that GME is an add on and not part of the main Geocaching software.. But surely GCHQ should "inform" interested parties, who have enhanced the functionality of the mapping such as GME for their customers benefit BEFORE they release new updates? It only takes a phone call or email these days to let others (such as those that have enhanced the GME) know what has been planned and when it might get released... It seems that changes are sprung on us... CUSTOMERS!! ......yes we are paying customers and from reading other changes made in the latest release this is not the only issue people have raised...i.e the Sorting issue. Having worked in the IT industry for well over 40 years I would not dare release any software without prior testing alongside the CUSTOMER!! Rant over....
  6. Have deleted ALL cookies and it still does not work.... why do they make changes WITHOUT full user testing?
  7. I agree, it no longers shows the OS map as default..... once again things h=get changed for no apprent reason....Why??
  8. Totally agree, I have just tried to send a message with some coordinates in it and it just does not send. Replacing the . with the word dot allows the message to be sent. What on earth prevents sending a message with 60.53N,02.47E in it???? ......sending it as 60dot53N,02dot47E seems stupid to me.
  9. Longwhatton34 What you need to do is just click the blank white box on the left of the width:7.9km .... this should pop up the boxes where you can add your Bing key again to get the OS maps back. Good ;uck
  10. Yes the latest geocaching.com changes do seem to have caused issues with the mapping again. I did not loose the main OS mapping feature so have not had to reapply the GME bing maps script etc BUT what is still annoying is that the small map on a cache page now only displays in Openstreetmap format whereas before the latest Groundspeak update re cookis etc, it used to allow other formats including OS mapping. Now there appears to be no way to change this? JRI has said that he will look at the GME script when time permits because he can see there are some problems since the Groundspeak updates last week. Anyone else notice this issue?
  11. Well the small map on the cache page is still not showing in OS format despite the recommended change to the cookie (and Yes we are using the same uBlock Origin version). The small map was useful as it showed how exactly where caches were located....and in OS format rather than Openstreetmap..... I realise that the larger map IS showing OK in OS format and thus its just a nuisance that this latest change has spoilt what we had before with the smaller map...... maybe someone else knows how to fix it?
  12. December 31st 2019.... It looks like the latest changes made by geocaching.com have affected the map display on all cache listing pages. If the Bing Maps key has been applied to get OS maps then the small map on a cache page listing no longer shows up in OS format. Selecting the "View Larger Map" does however produce a map in OS format. The suggestion is that a tweak is needed to the javascrip in this GME Map enhance script maybe? Any suggestions please?
  13. Nothwithstanding the reply given by Viajero Perdido that that still does not answer the question as to why the "standard" map options have vanished from the options on the small map box? i.e Satellite view etc?
  14. Have had OS mapping working on geocahing.com for some time now...... but today for some reason the small map on an individual cache page does not allow any options for display other than Open Street Map? When selecting View Larger Map the full OS map is displayed OK... So why has the small map options changed and why is there no otion to change it from OpenStreet Map to anything else including OS Maps which it had before today? The mind boggles at how these changes get made without full and proper testing...... its not the first time this has happened is it?
  15. Oh dear oh dear oh dear, now there are all sorts of server errors here in the UK when trying to look at things like trackables, souvenirs etc etc......... will check again in the morning........ what a mess this has turned out to be.
  16. Sorry but here in the UK its still not working properly....... you can now log a cache that has a Detective rating and you get a message to say that you have won a souvenir BUT when you then click on it you get a Server Error 500 !!!! so one step forward and two backwards it seems?
  17. But obviously not us Premium Users of the official web based service then?
  18. Still not working here in the UK (its 16.40 pm now) ... have tried both the App and the PC... nothing works as altrhough you can see caches that are supposed to have the Detective hint nothing happens when you log any of them!!!! VERY FRUSTRTATING!!!!
  19. The whole point of my original comment was that the Garmin Oregon 750 offers a facility in the settings to "choose" between 2,3 or 4 digits........ but this "feature" just does not work since the latest Firmware was released. Thus the user cannot set their preference for the coordinate display. Thus Garmin are the only ones who can fix this issue by amending the Firmware. From the responses it does look like many are not actually Geocachers but ""experts" in the field of coordinates and their usage and consequently don't fully understand how us Geocachers generally use our GPS devices in the field. Just stating that we should ignore the 4th digit on say the Oregon 750 but on the Oregon 650 and earlier devices its only 3 digits causes lots of confusion as a number of comments have stated.
  20. Having now read all the logs on this topic I really hope that Garmin make the change to the Firmware feature that will allow us "the users" to decide if we want a 2, 3 or 4 digit display on coordinates. It does not make sense for Geocaching.com to use one format and Garmin (one of the largest suppliers to us Geocachers) to decide otherwise. So come on Garmin get your act together please, just for once!!
  21. So my choice of maps is now limited ? I want to use the OS map as the base for my searching..... like the images attached. With the "new" mapping I dont get that choice?? Seems like a retrograde step to me.
  22. The new mapping said to come into operation on the 25th April DOES NOT provide the same functionality as now here in the UK Currently we can display any region in FULL OS map topology just by clicking the Map These Geocaches....... but now we dont get the option of using an OS map at all. Only by selecting an individual cache then use the Enlarge the map optio on that cache page can we see the full OS mapping. WHY? Surely we should be given the same level of options here in the UK as we have become used to..... seems like tinkering for the sake of tinkering.... If it 'aint broke dont mend it is the moral Very dissappointed that this is being imposed on us for no good reason...sorry.
  23. The issue here is that the developers of the GME enhancements have to play catch up each time the mapping gets changed...and we the users then have to wait for the GME developers to get it working again....hardly fair to them is it? They do a great job as always....my real point is why keep changing the mapping when it works fine as it is for the majority of users?
  24. I appeared to be signed up for these new tests on mapping but don't know why? I tried the new maps feature but once again it appears to have removed the ability to use the Geocaching Map Enhancement features that allow us UK cachers to use the OS mapping..... why change things that are working fine? So I have opted out of the tests in the vain hope that things will not cause disruption to an existing solution if and when changes are imposed upon us once again. PLEASE CHECK OUT THE GEOCACHING MAP ENHANCEMENTS and ensure that they are compatible with any changes you are planning. Sorry to rant on but its important to us UK cachers
  25. Thanks, however I must report that using version 7.3.2 of the script everything works fine EVERYTIME but if I upgrade to version 7.3.3 then the map issue I reported occurs EVERYTIME ..... and on several PCs so I dont quite understand the logic you offer? So for the moment I have to stay with version 7.3.2 Confusing to say the least.
