Titel: Sent to GPS
Beitrag von: harrieklomp am 14. Oktober 2011, 08:41:53
Hi all,

I know there are more Linux users who also use Opencaching (not .com) and that some things are not easy to use like in MS windows.
I own a Garmin oregon 450 and it was not possible to make a software update in the Garmin because Garmin does not support Linux.
Yesterday i manage to get it working to make a software update on my Garmain in my linuxbox  :D The next step was to try the "sent to GPS" function on the Dutch oc node but that did not work  :'( In Windows it works fine.
On geocaching.com (i only come there to look, not for caching) the function "sent to GPS" works fine.

After looking at the pagecode i found that OC use the link 'http://developer.garmin.com/web/communicator-api/garmin/device/GarminDeviceDisplay.js' and on GC they use the link 'http://www8.garmin.com/j/communicator-api-1.5.1/garmin/device/GarminDeviceDisplay.js'.

My question is, can we use the same link on the OC site and what will happen when i change the line in /code/htdocs/templates2/ocstyle/sys_main.tpl ? Or are there more thing to be changed to get this function to working.

Greetings

You can change it and look what happens.
If it does not work, make the change undone.

It depends on the question what Garmin changed in the API from the old revision to the new one.

The new link did not work, so i change it back to the old one.

But after i while i found out that it works fine and also on the German node.
Connect the GPS, click on "sent to GPS" the popup appears on the screen and nothing happens. Than right-click on the popup and press "renew". Now the cache will be sent to the GPS automatically  :D

Have fun  :)

Greetings
