Notification of new ALs


Recommended Posts

I just published a new AL and have found that people have already completed it - highly suss but not the point of my post.  How do people get notified of new ALs ? I can't see how short of staring at map and spotting something that wasn't there before!

I've gotten several notifications for new Adventure Labs in my area. It's so easy to select notifications in the phone settings for the AL app. We have not been able to determine the exact distance but for me it seems to be about 10 -15 miles.

They've completed it and they're waiting for the bonus cache! 😁

That looks like a really fun adventure lab!

That's it !

I just looked at where your most recent hide was, moved the AL app map to that area and clicked on the first green icon with a gear that I saw, since you said it was very new. 😁

I think the distance is a bit more and closer to 20 miles in my experience from your current position when it's getting published.

 

But yeah I am really surprised that no one at Groundspeak ever said (as far as I know) what the heck is the actual distance and if there are ways to adjust it.

Yes, you are right. I calculated the distance of the latest AL I got a notification for and it was close to 20 miles.

My notifications have been working perfectly lately. But one thing I can't figure out is why one Adventure Lab is consistently not showing up on the adventure lab app. It has before but now it's not. I have not started it I have not completed it and I know it's there. I now access it through the geocaching map.
