Geocache "original/corrected coords" and "marked as computed"

For now i found different behavior and question is could this be solved.

1.

- import a mystery cache and store it in locus

- solve it and write calculated coords on PC to listingcoords

- update cache inside locus

- now icon is marked as computed and visible on new position on map

- original coords are visible in listing


2.

- new mystery not yet imported to locus!

- solve it and write calculated coords on PC to listingcoords

- mystery will be imported via next PQ to locus

- icon is visible on calculated position

- icon is not marked as computed

- original coords aren´t visible in listing

Good day balloni,


I'm worried this will be hard task. On 99%, if something hasn't changed, information if coordinates are corrected or not (and also orgininal coordinates) are not included in PQ files!


You may check it by extracting content of PQ file (it is simple GPX file). In this GPX, cache will be probably placed on corrected coordinates, but no more information will be there (like original or some info that these are already corrected).


What about download of cache over geocaching4Locus in 2. case (when cache is not yet in Locus)?

Hello,

you are welcome. This not the only problem with very old PQ system. I still can't understand, why Groundspeak do not add few missing attributes into their GPX extensions.


Anyway in case you do some edits on web, I may only suggest using download of caches of Geocaching4Locus add-on. Thanks and nice, calm and relaxing day to You too!
