Import cache from www.geocaching.com does not work

Solved

If I look up a geocache on www.geocaching.com and select the link to it. Android asks me if I want to use the webreader or locus. I want to use locus because I want to import the cache so I select Import cache. I am then greeted with a error that says "Expected a name but was BEGIN_OBJECT"

this is probably issue of one of Locus add-ons, so I believe, owner will take care of it

Hello,


it seems to me that only one type of URL for a cache is possible to gain an import into locus:


(example)


http://coord.info/GC26TAJ


The "long" URL is not working: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_...


The short URL can be get on the upper right side of a geocache page (the bold gc code with the small dropdown tringle).


I hope this helps a little.


Greetings,


Druki.

Strange. Do you still have problem with it? Because something gone wrong with Geocaching API in that time (All application that are using the API didn`t work include Groundspeak`s app).

The long URL is supported in G4L since version 1.3.9.

Ok, you are right the long URL throws error. Damn it! It should work. :/


I will fix it in a next release.
