Using 4.2.1 The Watch Geocache option takes me to the watch list page on geocaching.com but does not add it to the watch list.

OK - You need an active account on Geocaching.com and I think it needs to be a paid account in order to use the Watchlist feature. The purpose is to get notified any time someone posts a new log on a geocache that I'm 'watching'.

Anyway, Start with viewing a geocache in Locus. Select the puzzle/tool icon and select 'Watch Geocache'.5588137a987b5e6100c3c1be0fb99fad


This will take you to the Geocaching.com web site and display your personal watchlist.

Note that at the top it says 'Added Everyday Heroes to your watchlist'. But it's not there.

Selecting 'Watch' on the geocaching.com web page adds it to the watchlist and it's displayed as shown.

While I'm in a whining mode, (haha) This display when averaging a new waypoint (selecting Stabilized GPS) always shows I'm over 9,000 miles away from the displayed dot even though it shows the correct coordinates at the bottom. It's a little disconcerting at first, but it works well and generates correct coordinates.

Users of GSAK, which is using the Groundspeak-API too, reports the same problem. So maybe a problem at Groundspeak.

Hi John,

regarding the "stabilized GPS" issue... could you please send a NMEA record of any track? (to put NMEA recording on, please go to settings > GPS&sensors > NMEA recording > track recording), the NMEA file will then be in /Locus/data/nmea/ directory. Thanks!

I have attached the nmea file as requested.


On the watch list issue, the guys on GSAK pointed out that the non-functioning GSAK watchlistmanager macro was using an outdated URL call not the API. The GSAK macro fails exactly as Locus fails, so it might be the same issue.

Thanks John, the file helped a lot. We've identified and fixed the problem. Please wait for the new app version.
