GeOrg version 1.1.6
There’s a new version of GeOrg available in the market. It has several new features and bugfixes, all of which are listed in the Changelog. For the next release, we plan to complete support for additional waypoints by letting you edit/add/delete waypoints to caches.
Here’s an overview with the most important changes in the new release:
- Additional waypoints
Additional waypoints are shown on the map, if you select a cache that has any. To keep the display from becoming to cluttered, waypoints are only displayed for one selected cache at a time and the cache you are navigating to right now.
- Clipboard support
You can now select and copy parts of the cache-description to the clipboard.
- Comment caches
Ability to add comments to caches. For example, you could save information about multi-stages or just make a note about the condition of the cache. (These notes are currently available offline only. Support for field-notes is planned, though.)
Solve riddles with the new GeOrg-Solvers. This is a growing list of small tools that help you solve common geocaching-problems. This initial release features Caesar-decryption (can also decypher geocaching hints), roman numbers, vanity numbers and morse-code.
- Improved visualisation of signal-quality
The quality of your currently determined position is now signalled with easy to recognize colors in the MainPage, CompassPage and MapPage.
- Quick jump to cache
Clicking on the name of your current navigation-target in the Compass- or MapPage takes you to the corresponding cache or waypoint.
- Multi-select on map
If there are several waypoints/caches next to each other on the map, clicking on the cluster lets you now select your target from a list.
- Static routes
With this version you can import routes from GPX in the new RoutesPage. You can display these routes on the map. Also, you can save calculated can-navigation routes as static routes for later use. (Currently the distance to your destination is not displayed when using static routes).
- Mark caches as DNF
- More import-options
You can now import Waypoints directly to the waypoint-list and GPX-routes from within the RoutesPage. You can opt to import all GPX-files in a given directory to your CacheDB at once and last but not least there are new import settings like “Keep Found-state for existing caches” or “Delete caches that have not been updated by GPX for a configurable amount of days”
GeOrg can now identify corrupt CacheDBs and fix them
Happy geocaching with the new version. If you have questions or problems, feel free to contact us!
