Geocache Uk Mobile Midlet


Followers 1

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am please to announce, that a new version of the GeocacheUK mobile midlet is now available for download.

 

Changes Made:

 

Ability to view either Waypoints, or Cache names in the cache list.

 

Setting for the Distance/bearing to be shown on the same line as the Waypoint/name (for phones with large screens).

 

Fixed bug that prevented some phones (eg Motorola V500/V525/V600) from storing preferences/ last searched co-ordinates, and therefore forcing re-entry each time the app was used.

 

Point your phones Wap browser at:

 

http://mobile.guk2.com

 

or, for more information look here:

 

http://www.geocacheuk.com/midlet.shtml

 

Cheers,

Tony.

I'm having problems with this. It says file not recognized when i try to down load it to my phone... and now i cant view information on other caches using the old version, it'll give you their id GC???? but the co-ords are all zeros and there is no discription of the cache! Has anyone else had this problem or am i having a crap attack (i happens you know) :blink:

Hi There,

 

Are you using the URL 'http://mobile.guk2.com' from your wap browser?

 

For some reason, the other 'stats.guk2.com/caches/mobile_midlet.jad' link gives an error..... Not sure why, but it you're using this link to get the update, you will have problems.

 

Try deleting the midlet completely, and starting from scratch using the http://mobile.guk2.com link.

 

Cheers,

Tony.

Just tried with my Motorola V500, without a problem..... Also tested it with a Nokia 6310i over the weekend, again with no problems.

 

The strange thing is, however, the stats.guk2.com/caches/mobile_midlet.jad has just started to work again, all by itself. I guess it could be due to a diry cache somewhere. Try again now, see what happens..... What type of Phone do you have?

Hi,

 

I just used the http://mobile.guk2.com link which worked fine on my Nokia 6230. It then went off and listed my nearest caches, as requested.

 

I then tried to get the details of a couple of the caches (one at a time), but most of the details were missing. I assume that the only stuff that was in the cache was the original info before it went off for the detail.

 

As an example cache GC70BE (Wooburn View) came back with...

Lat long of

N0 00.000

N0 00.000

This was showing correctly (with the ?) before it connected.

 

OSGrid of 0

 

The correct distance, Difficulty, Terrain and Size.

 

An owner of wner not found

 

Last found was 00/71/40 and Failed Attempts was 0

 

Any idea what causing this?

 

A while back when I tried it on my wifes Nokia 3410 all worked perfectly

 

Thanks

Dean

Thanks for the quick response Tony.

 

One other question. Would it have been OK to just grab the jar file from the site and then infra red it to my phone or does it need the jad file to do things with?

 

Just wondering as I first did it that way and then tried downloading in via WAP when I first got the errors.

 

Cheers

Dean

I'm getting the same problem on a Nokia 3510i on Virgin. This is a new instal following the instructions on GCUK. Have not used this application before.

The geocaching.com server is currently blocking all access from the GeocacheUK server. Since the cache details are obtained live from GC.com (rather than from the G:UK database), this means that the mobile midlet is currently unavailable.

 

I've contacted Groundspeak to find out what the problem is. Meanwhile I'll see if I can make a temporary change to the script so that it works again.

 

Cheers,

Ian

 

[Edit] - OK should now be working (though the OS coordinates added to the descriptions are now duplicated).
