Geocaching ® app fail
« 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.....

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.....
