Updated coordinates don't show on waypoints

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that when an owner updates coordinates that they don't show up on the waypoints on the app. The waypoints still show the old ones. If you click on the compass it has the updated coordinates. This can be confusing since we click on waypoints and manually enter those into our GPSr.

I'm trying to follow. Can you provide an example to help me out?

You can see in the activity that he changed the coordinates. If you click on Waypoints it still shows the original coordinates.

GC7VP41 is the first one I noticed this on.

I'm not seeing that in my iPhone app. If you pan away and then pan back (to force a data refresh), do you see a change?

This is on the Android app. It doesn't change. I even had a friend tell me yesterday that the coordinates were off on one by over 60 feet but it was just showing the original coordinates when you click on waypoints.

I was hoping to confirm your issue, but I only see the updated coordinates on the app. On Navigate, compass and by using the Waypoint link.

My wife and I have two different Android phones. Her Groundspeak Geocaching app doesn't show the updated coordinates on the waypoints either.

That's what is strange. The compass shows the correct ones. But we never use the compass on the app. We click on waypoints and put them into the GPSr.

I wish I had an Android phone to test with. Is there any chance you saved that cache for offline use?

Both of these show the corrected coordinates as posted coordinates when I click on Waypoints.  What phone, and app version are you using?

Version 8.18.2

Android 10

Google Pixel
