Hello


Is there an option to see if there are any trackables in an geocache.

And is it possible to see Informations about the trackable? (e.g what the mission of the travelbug is)


Thanks in advance

Thanks for your answer but why say c:geo that in the cache are 2 trackables and locus says that there are no trackables in the cache? (see the attached screenshots)

Thanks in advance

Edit:

The groundspeak-DB says like c:geo that there are 2 trackables in the cache


I have never seen an cache in locus which has trackables in there.

Do I have to change something in the options, that Locus download trackables?

I hope you can help me

available TB´s are only displayed inside Locus if you are logged in to geocaching.com with a premium account inside GC4L and run "update cache"

Oh ok

Why can only Premium Members see trackables in Locus?

Because at Geocaching.com, non-premium mebers can also see trackables in an geocache

Good day guys, I'll try to explain it little bit. Almost all was said by balloni55 (thanks for it), but I'll try to summarize it.

1. First step how to see trackables in Locus, is to get them into Locus

2. Pocket Queries or other GPX files usually do not!! contain trackables

3. Geocaching4Locus is downloading as much information from Groundspeak as possible. Unfortunately, some information are restricted only to Premium members as balloni55 wrote. One of them are "trackables"

4. c:geo is violating terms of use of groundspeak.com and is downloading whole web pages with all possible information, also with trackables. That is why you see them in c:geo

Hope it gives you answer on all your questions.

Generally, fact you do not see trackables in Locus is not because we do not want to allow it, but because Geocaching API we use for official access of geocaching information is very very limited for a basic members.

Sure, you are welcome.


I was not trying it, but you may check this export method: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:geocaching:import#export_to_locus_map ... c:geo use quite old Locus API, so it won't probably export to Locus also trackables, but you may try it.
