Automatically created waypoints in caches with Personal Notes

Not a Problem

When I make a personal note online at the cache's page at gc.com and this note contains coordinates, when I then update the cache in Locus a waypoint with these coordinates is automatically created. This didn't used to happen in the past and is very annoying.

Good day popescu,


if I understand correctly, you do not like this feature.


1. This is anyway a system that works, uff, at least 2, maybe 3 years already. So really nothing new.

2. Such feature is included in Geocaching4Locus add-on, not in Locus itself.


So I may only change this to idea and Arcao (developer of G4L) should look at it later. Anyway from my personal point of view, there should be serious reason for any special settings that change this behavior as I see it very useful.

Well, the only reason I don't like it is the fact that it makes my database messy. Not every coordinate I save in the Personal note is desirable in Locus. But if it's intentional, I'll have to find a way how to get used to it.


Does anybody have a tip how to use this feature so I can learn to use it to my benefit? What is it good for?
