Locus setting - Moves to the final coordinates - CIRCLE

Locus setup - original location of the coordinate - WITHOUT CIRCLE and CIRCLE FOR WP final location

Virtual or Physical WP - stage:

I do not know if this entry (identifier) is available for Locus via the GS API.

If yes, then:


physical - CIRCLE


Very nice Condor, thank you!


Remark for "CIRCLE WITH IF": the original coordinates of Multi-cache, Mystery Cache,... to new final coordinates may be changed by GC server independently of Locus setting, I think. (e.g. by new GC geocheck). :-( Unfortunately, I don't know if this can be known after cache import by API. The type of stage (Virtual / Physical WP) is available for Locus, I think. Locus displays the correct corresponding icon on the map. The problem may be on some Mystery Caches or Multi-Caches that have a box at their original coordinates and haven't Physical Stage on this original coordinates. But I would not solve this, this is very rare, I think.
