Wherigo app (iPhone) encoding issue

Recommended Posts

When a cartridge is opened, first screen shows an information about the game. This is taken from the Wherigo.com, which can contain localized strings. This is not properly shown in the new iPhone Wherigo app 1.5.5 (28) (released yesterday). 
please, observe attached screenshot, test such issue on such geocache: GC7CV60.

 

Thank you.

I moved this thread from the iPhone Geocaching App forum.

This is not a problem of the iOS app. The question marks are also in the WhereYouGo App (Android). Also some german letters (ä,ö,ü,ß) are displayed as question marks. That is a problem of all Wherigo Apps.

At some point along the line the proper character encoding is not maintained, that's the problem.

Would love to solve this but it has to do with how the cartridges were encoded.

Nic,

this information is taken from the Wherigo.com site, not from the cartridge itself. Confirmed by the cartridge maker, he doesn't use unusual characters inside the game, as Garmin would not "survive" them.
