Download Error - Can't download Wherigo cartriges

Recommended Posts

I have been trying for 6 months to get this feature to work.  I have an android phone have downloaded the WhereYouGo app.   I double checked the credentials and file location.  a friend suggested I try to download from cgeo, but I get the exact same screen/error.  When I click on any cartridge, a screen pops up with "Download Cartridge" on the top.  A button on the bottom for "Download"  I tap on Download and another pop up appears with first "Connecting" then "Logging In"  then Downloading - then "Download Error".   Same thing every time, and with cgeo.   I have friends that download the same cartridge with no problems on their phones.   Any suggestions????

My husband seems to have the same issue.  We have the same phone, a Google Pixel.  We both have the WhereYouGo and Geeoh apps.  I can download and play the cartidges.  He gets "download error" (nothing more specific than that).  Our settings and download locations are the same,  we are both on our home wifi, yet mine download without a hitch and his won't.  We can't figure out why,

Two different options to try to see if you might clear up any problems.  Option 1 might not provide much help because I'm not sure there's been an update in a bit but it's worth checking out.

 

1.  Look to see if it needs to be updated.  If so, update and try again.  Make sure to go to the settings and verify your login credentials are still entered.

 

2.  Uninstall and then install it again.

Same cannot login hence cannot download issue here as well.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but stil no go. Entering user name/email address & password, tap green sign in button, but nothing happens, and if go back, get pop up error Groundspeak Auth Error Error logging in. Cancel Retry Message, and just continues to fail. Useless app. I will stick with my Garmin Oregon 450.

I also have been having download error problems. It worked fine for years and the past couple of months-nothing. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Checked password. SAD

Geooh GO for Android is currently the only geocaching app that can download cartridges from a cache description.

From the Play Store web page:

This open source app was unmaintained since over a year and now online functions
(cartridge download) stopped working since a few months without someone able to fix it.
Now a new development team was finally able to take over the source code and is trying to continue here. Please be patient and give us some time to catch up!

Doubt it... no one is actively maintaining Wherigo players except for the Geooh app.

I get the download error with both the Groundspeak app and the Geooh Go app.  HELP!!!  I love to do whereigos and now they won't download.  And yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled and still have the error.

Contacting support would be much more effective in getting help than asking strangers here.

Hello all. I also have the whereyougo app and have an Android Samsung S10. I am also having the same problem downloading the wherigos into my phone. I have found a work around but takes a little extra work. I download the cartridge from my home computer and place the file on my desktop. I then plug in my phone to the computer and open up the phone's files until I find the whereyougo app. Then simply drag and paste the file from your desktop into the whereyougo file on your phone. Then the cartridge will appear in your whereyougo app when you press start. I know this takes a little more effort, but there's really no other choice unless you use an older GPS that supports wherigos. After you do it a few times you can do it in a matter of seconds. 

 

Hope this helps!

Or use Geooh.. that's a choice! I have not encountered a download error on any cartridge in a cache description. No one has shown a screenshot of it not working so not sure what they are trying to do if they think it doesn't work.

I do a similar work around to the one 2 above but all on my phone for wheteyougo on android..

I click on the link in the cache description but select open in browser.

Then hit the download button. It might ask you to sign in, just keep selecting browser if asked.

Then select download cartridge and choose pocket pc device and download.

The file will now be in your dowloaded files.

If you look in your settings in whereyougo, it will show the file storage location.  Just move or copy the down loaded file into that location and you should then be able to see it whereyougo ( for us, it was  .... internal storage/ android / data / menion.android.wheryougo /files )

See the new forum message on Geooh downloads to know how to remove the frustration with c:geo and whereyougo opening everything automatically. At one time you told Android to always use them.

I appreciate your willingness to sing the Geooh GO tune BUT I get the very same results using Geooh GO that I got using Whereyougo. It really would be nice if your solution was the magic solution, but it didn't work for me. :-(

It works... are you sure WhereYouGo is not jumping in to do the download? If you told Android to always use that app for Wherigo.com links, then Geooh is not getting a chance to download.

 

Attach a screenshot showing it's Geooh and not WhereYouGo getting the download error.

 

Also, review the post below to fix your phone to allow Geooh to download instead of WhereYouGo...
