I have a trackable that I visit for each cache I find. Would it be possible to not have to enter log text?

There is some quirk with Google Play Services that drops the connection at times. Although it is suppose to automatically reconnect, I've found it doesn't. I keep trying to tweak things to force a reconnect, but still now sure if that works. It appears to be a recent Android change since the same code was working before. I'll keep trying.

Support / data network issues
Last post by searcher -
geooh live v9.1.4
android 5.0
dual sim, data on one, phone and text on the other
configuration worked no problem in past

i noticed some problems lately which may or may not have coincided with the latest google play services update.

first off, everything works properly on wifi.

however, on data geooh unexpectedly stops working. if i refresh logs in the Logs screen, it will say
Warning The network is not available
and if i attempt to refresh the cache listing it will say
Error The network is not available
in the live view i'll get the same thing if i select a cache

once it enters that state, it doesn't recover.

i thought it was my network but switching immediately to my email app shows it's working and the geocaching app continues to work (oh god that thing is badly designed). switching back to geooh and the same problem continues

i have noticed that quitting geooh live and then restarting it makes it go again but soon after it enters that error state and no more network activity is possible.

i was about to delete and reinstall geooh live but i thought i'd hold off in case there's something else you want me to try first.

Android usually puts something in the notification bar when an update is occurring.

Support / not your problem
Last post by searcher -
was trying something in geooh. live just wouldn't run. it would hang and no map would show. no matter what i tried. even reinstalled the previous version of geooh in case i'd not noticed a bug before. but same thing happened. starting to pull my hair out. then tried the gc app and no maps there either. what?. then i look at a cache in the gc app and instead of the preview map i see "Google Play services are updating".

MADDENING.

this has happened before but forgot about it. on this phone, nothing updates by itself EXCEPT that (which i can't stop)

is there any way to tell when it's done?

vent ends.

ps, again, not your problem - thanks for listening

I continue to look for ways to improve speed, but you may be disappointed when opening a large list. On the other hand, the new version brings more features and improvements that may offset load times.

The other apps seems to do some preprocessing and store this for instant usage. Looking4cache can present this list with 4000 caches instantly even on an old iphone.

Anyway, I am looking forward for trying out your new app :-)

I don't think you'll find much difference between the versions. Pocket queries will download very fast, but opening an offline list will about the same as now depending on the number of caches in the list. Geooh is doing more to maintain a richer interface so it takes time to prepare things when opening. Honestly, it's not designed for lists so large such as 4000.

Will the new version be faster to load caches?

I have tried several apps and not found the "perfect" one

1. The official is missing a lot of basic functionality
2. Locus Map is complex and sometimes difficult to use.
3. GCDroid has a text size which is way to small for me

and

4. Geooh Live have a nice design and is easy to use, but is to slow opening a database with 4000 or more geocaches. Locus Map and GCDroid takes their time to import the pocket query, but when it is imported it is quick to open. Geooh Live, on the other hand, is quick to import, but slow to open this dataset afterwards.

Discussion / app shutdown?

Hi,

I was travelling last week and while caching I received the notification about the app shutdown. I was in the middle of something and didn't get to read the whole message. Is it possible to post the text here?

Thanks!
