Nearest geocaches downloaded round current position instead of the map centre? Why?

popescu shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

Since certain update, when I see a place on the map and hit download nearest geocache, first I get the "Acquiring location from GPS" dialogue and then G4L automatically sets my current position as the centre of the search. That's so annoying! I need to search for geocaches elsewhere and the only way how to do that is to click in a map instead of simply positioning the spot in the centre, open the pup-up, then the "puzzle icon" and then "nearest geocaches".

Why isn't G4L downloading caches round the current map centre as it used to be for years? What's the purpose of this change? Can it be changed back?

Good day Popescu,


we found this issue a few weeks ago, but till today morning we were not able to fix it. But finally ... :).


So in next version of G4L add-on and maybe also an Locus (issue was on both sides), this problem will be fixed.

Good. I was afraid it might be a new feature instead of a bug.


I'll be looking forward! :)

Arcao is really fast ... http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=549.msg35788#msg35788 :). In latest Locus version this should be already fixed.

Guys, I'm afraid the issue persists even after the update. I got the yesterday's version of G4L and when I wanted to download caches round the map centre today, I again got caches next to my actual position, again there was the window with acquirigin GPS position, so basically nothing has changed.

Are you using latest Beta version of Locus?


EDIT: and also please check if there isn't some new update of G4L on Google Play

I'm using the 3.7.1. downloaded regularly from Google Play, so probably not.

Fine, then you have to wait to next version of Locus, sorry for that confusing. Gynta mentioned it in linked topic

Oh, I've read that before but I didn't understand what it was about. Now I get it. Okay, I'll wait :) Thanks Menion, Arcao, Gynta, as always :)
