[BUG?] 8.46.2 - GPS accuracy missing from map navigation; compass navigates to main coordinates, even if other waypoint selected


Recommended Posts

I updated the app today before I set out. I noticed two changes in 8.46.2 that I am not wild about.

 

Thing 1: GPS accuracy no longer appears when navigating using the map view. It was available in every version I can remember up until this one. Its absence is not good. I would like it back. The only way I can see the accuracy of GPS reception is to use the compass view - and that creates another issue.

 

Thing 2: The compass navigation apparently will only work for the published coordinates for a cache. I was using the map view to navigate to the parking coordinates of a multi, which should have been 0.3 miles or so ahead of me. When I switched to compass view, the needle said I had only 0.1 miles to go. That's where the published stage 1 coordinates of the multi were. The destination coordinates at the bottom of the compass screen confirmed that it was trying to take me to stage 1 and not the parking coordinates.

 

I will try to add screen shots when my phone charges up some more.

We were navigating to the final coordinates of a puzzle cache today. It was fine using the map but when you went to use the compass it was taking us to the posted coordinates. I hope this gets fixed soon.

Same too. If I change the coordinates after solving a unknown cache, the final is shown correctly at the map, but it shows the distance to the header/posted coordinates. And the shown distance to the cache on the map doesn't change when you are moving, it is necessary to click again on the cache-icon to get the actual distance.

Agree - we saw both these things yesterday - we use the map feature all the time, both driving and walking - not havng the distance count down as you move is a show stopper.

Taking the distance from the listed corords instead of the highlighted waypoint had us very confused for a while! I look forward to both these being rectified.
