About this app

It supports playing Wherigo cartridges, which is an interactive location based geocaching game. You can load, play and save the current state of your Wherigo game. Compass and online or offline maps can be used to navigate, alternatively Locus can be used to display maps.
Cartridges for usage with WhereYouGo can be downloaded from https://www.wherigo.com and other services.

Main features:
- Automatic download of cartridges from wherigo.com (can be triggered from your browser by opening a listing page on wherigo.com or from other geocaching apps like c:geo)
- Use compass to navigate to the next game zone or location
- View game zones and locations on a map
- Uses online maps from various sources
- Supports offline map files (only Mapsforge v0.3 format at this moment)
- Seamless interworking with Locus to display maps (alternatively to internal maps)
- Several save game slots per cartridge
- Automatic game saving when switching to another app
- Integrated QR-code reader

WhereYouGo is OpenSource and licensed under GNU General Public License v3.0.

After the source code was unmaintained for several years, a new development team (the c:geo team) was - with agreement of the orignal author - finally able to take over the source code and continue app development.
If you are able and willing to help us, you can find information and source code in the link below. We need your help: https://github.com/cgeo/WhereYouGo
The core of the application is based on OpenWIG, it uses the Mapsforge library to display maps, alternatively Locus can be used.

- When manually downloading cartridges from wherigo.com, make sure to use the version "Pocket PC Device".
- Copy the cartridges into your Wherigo folder (Settings - Main - Wherigo folder). Make sure you granted the application permission to write to external storage and you have write permission in selected directory. Some newer devices don't allow writing to SD card. If you're not sure, set "Wherigo folder" automatically.
- If you have problems installing or using WhereYouGo please contact us at whereyougo@cgeo.org
- If you would like to know why WhereYouGo needs the permissions requested, please check https://github.com/cgeo/WhereYouGo/blob/master/PRIVACY.md for an explanation.

UPDATE : July 2022 Have to change my rating. I know how how this app works. But for some reason it no longer recognizes GWC files. It does take some configuration, but once you change up the folder where you store the whereigo files, this app runs smooth! It really depends on what android device you have, but I recommend making the folder where you access your whereigo files your download folder so they're right there

This thing is worthless without turn-by-turn navigation, or at least a navigable map showing the destination relative to where I am unless all the stages are in a single cemetery or park, for example. The useless compass navigation screen doesn't even show the coordinates of the destination. It just shows my position's coordinates. And the compass is useless. All you can do is use trial and error to determine what direction decreases the distance to the target.

I was able to use the app on my android Samsung 12 after hours of fiddling with it. I used the app to find 3 caches and then the app would not recognize the .gwc files. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice and it still will not see the files. I have tried renaming, moving and redownloading the cartridges but nothing seems to work. Seems to me the developers just need to get the app to work properly.
