Geocaching.com site update March 27th 2012

Recommended Posts

I would then click on that cache and a tab would come up and I could transfer that cache directly to my GPS on the spot, but I am unable to do this anymore.

Do you see this when you click on a cache?

If so, you can click on "Send to GPS". If not, then there's some kind of browser configuration that's causing your problem.

Yeah, this stopped working for me a while back as well. No explanation given, even when I tried contacting GS.

The entire change of maps suck anymore. No matter if its on the cache page your your looking at larger maps. Satellite view on the larger map doesn't even load anymore for me except for bits and pieces of it. And of course there is always a big white square right where I wanna look. I use the satellite view (w/cache) for planning my trips. Now the use of maps are useless on the website. Go back to the way it was a year ago.

Based on a post from a lackey from a few days ago (which, for the life of me, I haven't been able to find since), they had experienced problems with the API server(s) last weekend, and the downtime was only to upgrade the hardware on the server(s).

 

Of course, since TPTB have once again chosen not to post anything about the recent downtime, the speculation will once again run rampant...

well I got a new laptop earlier this week and had no problem downloading and installing the little program you needed to upload geocaches to the GPSer...had to return the laptop last night because of a problem with it and replaced it with the same laptop model...and now (since the "update" I can't get that program to run. I receive this message:
