Just a heads-up: caches using the "Evince" geochecker may need to start looking for an alternative...

Paperless and Mobile Caching / Re: Geocaching ® app fail
« Last post by bluelamb03 on February 17, 2017, 20:48:03 »
I do have an older and more damning issue with the Geocaching ® app, the fact that it often doesn't show you caches!

Thursday, January 26th and the "old" app shows the cache, "St. John Ambulance FD - revisited", https://coord.info/GC6ZHQG,


while the new app displays nothing.....


The new app is not very trustworthy, this is the third instance of this happening.....

Paperless and Mobile Caching / Geocaching ® app fail
« Last post by bluelamb03 on February 17, 2017, 12:17:17 »
Tonight I tried for GC702NE, a cache that uses a math formula for solving the coordinates.

The formula for the latitude looks like N 45° 23.(B+D-2)2 as displayed in the Geocaching app description, but it's actually (B+D-2)², that's (B+D-2) to the power of 2..... A waste of my time thanks to the lame app.

I should have stuck to Cachly, that app renders the formula correctly.....

Help With Geocaching Software / Re: New GC Littler Helper II for Firefox !
« Last post by kirok on January 25, 2017, 20:26:26 »
Seems this new guy is focusing only on Firefox.  People are installing it in Chrome and testing it for erros, but I don't think it is working too well there so far.

I have Chrome installed in all my computers. Will the "new" GC Little Helper work with Chrome?

Help With Geocaching Software / New GC Littler Helper II for Firefox !
« Last post by kirok on January 21, 2017, 23:07:55 »
As many of you have noe realized, Torsten Amshove stopped development of our beloved GC Little Helper tool. 

Thankfully, someone else has picked up the torch and is now running with it.  Gc Little Helper II !

https://geoclub.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=79372

Here is the Google TRanslated page:

https://translate.google.ca/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fgeoclub.de%2Fforum%2Fviewtopic.php%3Ft%3D79372&edit-text=&act=url

And the link to the script itself:

http://github.com/2Abendsegler/GClh/raw/master/gc_little_helper_II.user.js

Assuming you don't want to lose all your configuration settings from the old version (VIPs, etc...), you can export / import them as follows:

0) Install the new script
1) Ensure you're at the geocaching.com page.
2) Ensure the OLD GC Little Helper script is the only one active. (Greasemonkey pop-down, use check boxes)
3) From the Greasemonkey pop-down, select   User Script Commands -> GC little helper sync
4) Click on "Manual (Click to hide/show)" to expand the text window
5) Click on the "export" button in the bottom left
6) Copy all the text you see in the text window to your clipboard (perhaps paste it into a notepad file or something just in case you want to save it for later, or put it on another PC)
7) From the Greasemonkey pop-down, turn off the old GC little Helper, and turn on the new one
8] From the Greasemonkey pop-down, select   User Script Commands -> GC little helper sync II
9)  Click on "Manual (Click to hide/show)" to expand the text window
10) Paste in all the code you copied eealier
11) Click on the "import" button

Voila!  Assuming all worked to your satisfaction, you can safely remove the old version of GC little helper.

General Discussion / Re: Forest destruction west of GFR

Yikes!  Thanks for the head's up.  My old GAG13 puzzle, "Do you have time?" GC1MJ7V is likely not long for this world.  For the best anyway, as I planned on killing it off.  Too far west to maintain.
I'm heading out Saturday to find that one, since it's been in my "solved but not found pile for ages".

Would you like me to retrieve it?
