Please Read: For those issues below
that are not yet marked as resolved, and link to bug reports elsewhere, do
us a favor and "star" those bug reports (effectively voting for them to be
fixed). The bugs themselves belong to Google, not Smittyware, and that is
the only thing that can be done at this point to bring attention to them.
Bad reviews of the victim software (CacheMate), threats of bad reviews,
and promising to reverse them if the problems are resolved will not help
Device reboot when update install attempted - OS versions 1.6
The device is rebooting because the Android application installer is
crashing, due to a bug triggered by an apparently rarely used combination
of features that CacheMate happens to use. This
problem is fixed in version 2.0.1 of the Android OS. Until you can get
that OS update, CacheMate updates can be installed by first uninstalling
the older version, then installing the new version. If you purchased via
the Android Market, you shouldn't have to pay again.
Also, once you've installed CacheMate 1.2.4 or later, an easy way to
avoid having to re-import data after reinstalling is to use the memory
card support that is included in that version.
Again, please note that this is an OS bug, and cannot be worked
around. If it were possible to work around it, that would have
happened by now.
Error parsing GPX/LOC files downloaded directly from
This is another Android bug that some people incorrectly blame on
CacheMate. Yes, there is a bug report open for that one, too. If you have a paid
membership with that site, you can use its Pocket Query feature to have a
GPX file emailed to you... CacheMate handles email attachments easily.
If you're trying to download these files in the process of a live search
of that site, read the documentation on
that feature, a version of which is also displayed when you actually
perform a live search from the application.
Cache detail view blank after returning from "car" mode
This appears to be a bug in Android's web view in certain versions of
the OS. Possible workarounds are being investigated, but it may come
down to a "refresh view" menu option. In the meantime, a workaround is
to back out of and go back to the cache details view when this happens,
or not being there in the first place when putting the device in the car
Red square obscuring part of map on Motorola Cliq
This is a bug in the Cliq's build of the mapping library, and one that
apparently can't be worked around. You'll have to wait until Motorola
releases a fix for it.
"Center on Google Maps" snaps to current user location
For some reason, sometimes when the Android Maps application is launched
with a location, it chooses to ignore it and instead center on your
current location. Going back and selecting the option again should cause
the map to center properly. A bug report is currently open.
