Hi, cant seem to get this working. all that appears after opening are tiles with address www.tinyurl.com/osmtile1. downloading the maps doesnt make any difference either.
I am new to geocaching, but having read about it on the internet & played with this app. I am hooked. As an OSM surveyor (Tallguy) it is also very satisfying to see OSM used so well. Terrific app. as far as I am concerned & I will be using it loads in the future. Thanks for all the hard workd on this. Nick
Hi Ross, did you see my tutorial on this topic? http://danielfett.de/privat,blog,map-types-geocaching-maemo-n900
Unfortunately, I can't publish instructions because it could bring troubles with google.
la aplicación en sí me parece muy buena y funcional, sin embargo, no logre cargar mapas de google maps, solo pude los de open street maps, lo cual es poco utilizable en argentina ya que están completamente desactualizados y solo tienen un par de rutas pero ninguna ciudad
I understood that is how it should work, but I have tested the 'Download Details' function while viewing the 'info' for the selected cache, also download details for all visible caches, and tried to download the overview again. The cache status does not change from normal. I am using release 0.7.0.2. I would try to 'purge' the downloaded caches, but I prefer to not lose my finds.
Still a great program!
You can always click on "Download Details" in the geocache details view. That will ensure you have the latest data.
However, the archive/not archived status should be updated by a Download Overview.
Is there a simple way to remove caches from the downloaded database? I have noticed that once a cache is downloaded, subsequent detail downloads do not seem to update the data. An example would be a cache that was downloaded, then was archived on geocaching.com. Later detail downloads do not change the status from 'normal' to 'archived'. Thanks again for a great program!
There's a bug fix release available in extras-testing and extras-devel (0.7.0.1).

Thanks Daniel. I discovered that disabling the View Description in HTML option allowed the program to function, but was unable to return here and comment. I'll try your latest release shortly!
I tried the 0.7.0.0 release from extras-development, and I must say the user interface looks very nice! I could never access the details of any cache that I selected from the map, though. I assume the menu to set the selected cache as the Target is available from the details page, because I couldn't find a way to do that, either. I reverted back to 6.1.5, but I can't wait to see the new release in action! Keep up the good work Daniel! I wish I was familiar enough with Python to assist!
The coordinate math functions are only available if you've selected a geocache which has coordinate math in it's description. The full details must bew downloaded, because otherwise there's no description for the geocache.
The formula must be in a specific format. In order to make most multi stage geocaches working, AGTL is somewhat tolerant about the format. However, the authors of the descriptions have proven to be very creative in finding new ways to express coordinates and formulas, so any programm will never recognize all formats.
Daniel, I have installed the latest version (6.1.5) but I still do not see the coordinate math functions that are visible in the screen shots. I did a complete remove and reinstall, not just an upgrade. Also, is it possible to "pin" North to the top of the screen in compas view? When moving slowly, close to the target, the compas tends to oscillate wildly. Thanks again for providing a great tool for this awsome hobby!
This is an outstanding app for GeoCaching, and I must congratulate Daniel on his continuing efforts to improve it!
How difficult would it be to use AGTL for finding Benchmarks as well as listed GeoCaches?
The bug fix is released and everything should be working again. Meanwhile, I'm still working on the next major release, featuring portrait mode, a slightly better map mode and dozens of other improvements.
Absoluteley love this app. went (mobile) with a buddy of mine the other day, him on his x10 me on my n900 this app. is a breeze to use and the GPS quite acurate! (seems better than on OVI maps)
Details are now downloading properly. :) Although now when I click "Download overview" I keep getting error saying "Please select a smaller part of the map.", no matter what size I choose.
Sorry, I didn't realize to push "Download Overview" earlier. I though that search would show overview.
Maybe there should be some simple manual or / and error messages that why something failed. Otherwise it seems to be a very good program!
Search is not intended to work for geocaches outside those already downloaded. This is a fundamental issue (we have no access on the geocaching.com database). Also, the search on specific parameters (like size) does only work for geocaches which details have been downloaded.
Does the search work for you for downloaded geocaches?
As the website keeps reverting to the old description, here's the long one: AGTL, the all-in-one solution for on- and offline geocaching, makes geocaching paperless! It downloads geocaches including their description, hints, difficulty levels and images. No premium account needed. Searching for caches in your local db is a matter of seconds.
