nüvi 550 Wherigo usage which file to use
Posted 09 October 2008 - 06:00 AM
When loading the gwc generated for Garmin Colorado and using it:
the unit switches itself off...
When loading the gwc generated for Pocket PC and using it:
I can start using it, but the unit sometimes locks after a few clicks - unfortunately I cannot reproduce this consistently...
So is the Pocket PC file the right one to use or do I need some other format?

But for "Wherigo" it isn't usable at all:
In the last few days I tried 2 cardridges in my "homezone" (which work fine in the version for PocketPC-Users on these devices).
The first one
allways crashes already during start (the nuvi 550 needs a hard-reset to get re-animated).
The second one
constantly crashes at station 2.
Even the garmin-demo-cardridge which was on the nuvi 550 by default (the one with the spaceship) hardly crashes near the end (while refueling the spaceship).
So garmin and/or Groundspeak did a very bad job on creating a stable Wherigo platform - especially on this device. It's a shame...
Greetz to all

While building my own Wherigo, I found that my cartridge worked flawlessly on the Wherigo Builder's Pocket PC emulator but kept crashing in the field on the nüvi 550 (problems mentioned above; locks up or switches off). I've tracked down the problem to the "Show detail screen zobject" script Action (supposed to force a certain screen to be shown to the player, such as a particular Task or Location). When I removed all of these Actions, everything now works without a hitch.
(When I download cartridge files from Wherigo.com, I get the ones for "Garmin Nuvi 500" in the drop-down box; when I build my own using the Wherigo Builder, I compile for "Any Device".)
Hope this helps.
