Geocaching Live Map doesn't work anymore

Thomas Shufps shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

When trying to enable live map for geocaching it only says I didn't enable a setting for data exchange between locus pro and the geocaching plugin but this is not true.


I tried everything ... Deinstalled, reinstalled, turned if on and off and nothing worked. It's like this since the last update.


Please help me ... It's essential for me!!!

Hello Thomas,

for me it works with Locus V 3.1.3 and GC4L V1.5.4.4

Are you logged in with your GC-account?

and

Menue/Settings/Misc/Enable Periodic Updates is checked ?!

and if you are a PM, have you checked minimum one possible cachetyp in setting of GC4L ?

yes, exactly my problem ...


I found a workaround for my problem which is quite annoying to do it evey time ... Close locus pro ... Start geocaching addon app ... enable in settings periodic updates (gets unchecked all the time) ... enable live map ... then start locus pro and with some luck, it starts to download the caches via live api

to be more clear: enable periodic updates in setting of addon every time!

Yes. Enable Periodic updates in Misc/settings in Locus Pro is always selected and does not deselect, on its own.


In GC4L, Live Maps needs to be selected.


Making sure that's the case with both of them, then live geocache updates occur.

Great!


Then, while viewing the locus pro map, and disabling Live map in GC4L, because you're driving and not geocaching....


Then when you get back to geocaching and enable Live map in GC4L, then GC4L

complains that Periodic Updates is not enabled. And no updates to the maps occurs.


So, back to closing Locus Pro. Then Closing GC4L.


Making sure that Enable Periodic Updates is STILL enabled in Locus Pro Misc/Settings.


Then enabling Live Maps in GC4L. Map Updates then occur.


So. It seems that now, with this current version of Locus Pro:

Don't disable Live Maps in GC4L, or else you'll need to close both apps and re-start them.

Hello guys,


unfortunately result of my testing is same as in case of balloni. No matter what I do, it works.


I do not see confirmation that you use Geocaching4Locus 1.5.4.4

Hello guys,


I probably found an issue, but on side of Geocaching4Locus.


Do you have installed Locus Free and also Locus Pro?


If so, then Geocaching4Locus take information about periodic updates from incorrect version of Locus. Is this your case?

Ah, yes ... both versions installed ... I'll try to install the free version and recheck if the problem is gone

I do not wrote that you need both version!


I wanted to write, that this problem appear in case, you have both versions installed at once. If you have only one and you still have this issue, let me know, because then it's a different problem.

Perfect.


I just a few hours before informed developer of Geocaching4Locus about this issue here https://github.com/arcao/Geocaching4Locus/issues/48


And seems it's already fixed now ;). So in next version of G4L add-on, it will work fine.

Hmm..i have only pro version. I use the workarround mentioned above and most of the times it works...though sometimes i get a notice that i have used my daily quota of downloading details of 6000 caches which is definitelly not true.

Yes. locus free haves periodic updates uncheckt. Checking period updates in Locus Free and closeing Locus Free. Then GC4L works really good (enable/disable) and no complaints of periodic updates. Thank you. Lancemitrex.

So, except Patrik, for all others works solution with enabling "Periodic updates" in second Locus installation, right? Becuase Arcao (author of Geocaching4Locus) prepare update and because I think it's more problem in add-on then in Locus, let's see what update brings. If issue will be still there, I'll dig deeper to this problem.

Hello. After update to 3.22 the Geocaching live map does not work. I have tried to logout and login in geocaching once again but no change. I confirm also the same issue with 3 of my friends.

Ani ve verzi 3.22.1 se mi nedaří přihlášení k účtu na geocaching.com a tím pádem stále nefunguje Live mapa

Zdravím Libore,

toto nejspíše nebude souviset se zmíněným problémem. Zkuste prosím zkontrolovat na Google Play zda je pro vás aktualizace aplikace "WebView" a případně aktualizovat. Bývá to nejčastější zdroj problémů s přihlášením.

OK, děkuji mockrát. Funguje.
