Problem With Gpx Country And State Tags


Teasel

Recommended Posts

I've suddenly started receiving GPX files without populated Country and State tags. Here's an example from 106958.gpx:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<gpx xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.0" creator="Groundspeak Pocket Query" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd http://www.Groundspeak.com/cache/1/0 http://www.Groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/cache.xsd" xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0">

The cache is a small 5 inch tube, and at it's inception had within it a Silver Frog, some crayons, 4 x hexagonal 3 pences and some GPS batteries. (And the log) So small exchanges only please.<br>Be warned it can be muddy!! Wellington boots are recommended.</Groundspeak:short_description>

 

When I download the GPX file from the cache details page, both tags are correctly populated:

It's interesting that it only affects the emailed pocket queries, not those from the cache page, as a recent thread suggested that they both use the same code.

 

Does anyone know why this has suddenly started to happen? It's not just my queries - at least one other person is experiencing the same problem.

 

Cheers,

Ian
