Release Version 1.3.0

Well, the 1.3.0 is out now 🙂 It is the version that has cost me the most energy so far. It came in a very turbulent time for me and additionally my two great co-developers Mike and Thomas decided to “sweeten” this time with some extremely complicated features 😀 And Andreas, our reigning picture painter…


Release Version 1.2.0: Caught up with the GCC

It is time: This release took longer than usual. This has several reasons: First, I, Mark, am back in regular employment and then, Thomas ‘TMZ’ and Mike, our two great new developers, needed the time to produce incredibly great tools after their extensive training period! But first things first, the most important news is: We…


Release Version 1.1.0

We didn’t really take a break after the release of 1.0.0. The main reason for this is that right after the release we could welcome a great reinforcement in our development team: Thomas (aka “TMZ”) had the urge to push the goal “replacement of GCC” very hard and flooded us with many new ported functions….


GCC vs. GCW

Update 10/2020: GCC completely replaced with GCW 1.2.0 Update 09/2020: Comparison with GCW 1.1.0 instead of version 1.0.0 The version 1.0 of the GCWizard had the declared goal to be coequal with the more famous GCC, with new technologies and also to provide an iOS version. Well, how does the reality look like? To make…


Release Version 1.0.0

We did it! And we are “proud like Bolle” (as we say in Berlin) that we brought the project that far! From the first crazy idea, up to a software with a version number 1 in about 8 months. What does that mean exactly? The goal for a version 1.0.0 was to migrate all features…


Why is what3words not supported?

Update 11/2021: Clarified some statement due to the comments of the w3w’s “Chief Marketing (!) Officer”. There have been many requests if the GC Wizard could also support the coordinate system what3words (w3w). Here are our three words: What is what3words? w3w is a system developed by a company for addressing the world in a…


Version 0.8.1 officially available as first version in the App/Play Stores

The first idea for developing the new app was born at a Geocaching event in November last year. Almost immediately, I believe in the same night, the first step was made. Today is the day. With the former test version 0.8.1 the #GCWizard has reached a maturity level that allowed us to release the app…


Coordinate Parser

The coordinate parser is part of the coordinate functions. It is used with the coordinate insert function and with the variable coordinate tool. Its job is to interpret a meaningful coordinate (latitude and longitude) from a text. Coordinates can be specified in various formats. The parser is limited to: DEC (decimal degree; DD.DDD°)DEG (degree, decimal…


Variable Coordinate

If in a multi or mystery geocache not all variables for the solution of the final coordinates can or could be determined, it is sometimes a good idea to simply look at all the open options, maybe even visualized on a map. In this way, some options can often be excluded (Of course, the possibilities…
