German "Umlaute" (ÄäÖöÜüß) in Wherigo (Urwigo)

I'm building a Cartridge with Urwigo. I have many German Umlaute like ÄäÖöÜü...

...in URWIGO I can "build a package" (gwz) for upload at Wherigo.com with UTF-8.
Wenn I use "Compile" at Wherigo.com and download it then, it works.
Does anyone knows if it also works if I upload it "normal"?

It all depends of what you mean by "it works". Did you try your cartridge on all Wherigo-capable devices?
I'm sorry to tell that it won't work, depending of the Wherigo player you'll use.


There is a way, though. sTeamTraen did a really good job with his Earwigo Wherigo Web Builder. Cartridges created with it contains some code taking care of that. As far as I know, this is the only Wherigo Builder which is able to manage with this.


Background information: Groundspeak and Garmin never took accented characters into account. Only 7-bit ASCII encoding is "officially supported".
