Love this app, I've found 5 WIG's so far. The only complaint is it doesn't give me the unlock code at the end, so I can't log on the Wherigo site. I can still do the Geocaching.com site logs though! Motorola Droid 2 Global

I wrote a small wherigo app "highland_fling" that appears to work well but differently than on the Garmin Colorado

What happened??? I used this app about a year ago and it worked great. Came to use it again today and I can no longer see the map. Have tried a few different map providers but not offline. Is this a bug or I'm I doing something wrong?

Dissapointing It did not save a GWS file, which is needed to unlock the cartridge. Maps don't work.

Unusable The interface to get started is not intuitive, but in the end, I got the cartridges loaded. However, for some reason, the longitude is displaying in south and latitude in north, putting me 30000km from the cache. I think that would put me somewhere in high earth orbit. Make an app that can read GPS before going past the basics.
