+redsox_mark Posted May 21, 2014 Share Posted May 21, 2014 Hi, I love the GME, and it's mostly working for me, but.. As of v0.7.0, display of corrected coordinates in GME should be working without the need for a workaround. If you visit the listing page for a cache that you have correctted the coordinates for, or that has additional waypoints, these should be displayed on the second map on the cache page, just above the logs. You should be able to click either the "View Larger Map" link above that map, or the "Geocaching.com Map" link at the top of the list of online maps, to see those waypoints on the main map. By this, I mean the full-screen map at http://www.geocaching.com/map I've upgraded to 0.7.0 using Chrome. The corrected coordinates in the larger map still don't work for me. (They used to before the last Groundspeak change some weeks ago). I'll also explain the drag'n'drop function that worked around showing corrected coordinates. It isn't necessary as a workaround any more, but it's still very useful. At the top of each cache listing, there is an icon showing the cache type, just to the left of the title. When GME is running, this should appear with a box around it, and when you move the mouse over it, the cursor should change to show that you can drag it. This icon can be dragged onto any of the maps that have been enhanced by GME, to display all the waypoints for that cache (including corrected ones). If you have the main map page open in another tab, you can drag the icon there. If you have another cache listing page open, you can drag the icon onto the larger of the two maps on the listing page, so you can see two nearby caches together on one listing page. This should also work on the TB tracking maps, and the planning map that shows free spaces for hiding caches. You should even be able to drag the icon into other programs, e.g. a text editor, to see the waypoint information in .LOC format. That sounds cool but it doesn't work for me either. I can drop the icon; it creates a file called "download" in my download directory. Quote Link to comment
