Meet & greet (view other cachers)

Christoph Puhl 1 year ago updated by GCDroid Support 1 year ago 6

Vor allem am Weg zu FTFs oder Events wurde ich mich immer wieder freuen zu sehen, (ob und) wo sich gerade weitere Kolleginnen und Kollegen befinden. In den Einstellungen kann man seine Sichtbarkeit für andere de/aktivieren und auf der Karte andere Cacher anzeigen lassen. Ähnlich wie bei Glympse, Waze oder der Google Standortfreigabe. 

Das non plus ultra wäre dann auch noch eine direkte chat Funktion.

I guess due to the big implications on privacy rules AND the fact that it is a great amount of work I'll close that for now...

Under review

All of that CAN be done... Problem would be privacy concerns of users, etc.

I kinda like the idea but seems like lots of work.

The problem in my opinion is that every app that has implemented this had their own solutions, not communication with each other. Neongeo had their solution. C:geo has their own as well right? The question is how useful this would be, how many geocachers are there that live close enough to each other that uses GCDroid?


I like the concept as well otherwise, I have had it turned on in other apps.

indeed.... things would only work within the app... and unfortunately there are simply not enough users... while for some people it might work for many it would be useless.

I don't think cgeo has that... actually pretty sure they don't. otherwise gcdroid could 'join' that system since it is open source and would be available for review.

I have a slight memory of c:geo using go4cache, but didn't find anything on it when I googled. Maybe it's a system that has died off? I can find some (swedish) forum posts about go4cache.com, but it's a dead domain.


It could, maybe, be something that Project-GC could host a generic open to use system for, that could be shared by different apps. Using the same token system that we used for import VGPS. I would have to consider if it's worth it though. Considering GDPR and such as well.

Further reading says that go4cache has been dead since 2012. And to me it felt like it was just 2-3 years ago I used it. I am really starting to get old. Time just flies by.
