Wherigo on Android it is possible

You need to install "Java J2ME Runner" from the Android Market.
Next, Download and install Openwig from here: http://code.google.com/p/openwig/
You will need to either get the APK file and install it with a file browser, OR use the Java J2ME Runner to point to the url for the Openwig JAD file.
APK File: http://raketa.140.cz...wig/OpenWIG.apk
JAD file: http://raketa.140.cz...wig/OpenWIG.jad
It works great on my HTC Hero from Sprint, and integrates with the built in GPS.

Opened the program and I got a really rough looking interface with "Start/GPS/options/quit" not sure what to do after that. I navigated to the apk file and it came back with an error.
Where or when does the Wherigo cartridge file come in?

I got the J2ME from the market.
Opened the .apk file from the link above.
It opened as an app, so I installed it.
Right after I installed it an icon in my top bar had a little android and coffee cup. It stated there is a newer verison please update. I did.
Found a .gwc file in my gmail account I could down load.
Opened the OpenWig app and selected the .gwc file.
It looks very crude! But it opens.
For some reason I can not download Wherigo carts from their site. It comes in as a .aspx file that my droid cannot open.
I plan on downloading to a pc and connecting the droid then placing the .gwc file in my "downloads file.
Hope this helps someone else.

double-check the Options menu and make sure that you have Internal GPS selected.
also, there are some bugs in its implementation, so it might update position slower than you would want (once every 20s or so). this will be fixed in due time, but i have no estimates now :/
this sounds weird. more so, if you didn't configure GPS, you can't really leave the zone.
let me tell you what -should- happen:
1. Captain tells you to put on your space suit
2. You select Space suit, then Wear
3. Captain tells you that's great and here are three items for you: Container, Candybar and Scanner
4. Now he tells you to head outside.
5. At this point, Spacesuit is not visible, but you have the three mentioned items. Also, you should see zone called "50m away" (which can be thousands of miles away, depending on where you live)
6. If you don't leave the starting zone, Captain will remind you to go out and follow the arrow. Or something.
if you are seeing something wildly different, please file a bug on openwig.googlecode.com (or if you don't have Google account and don't want to register, send me a PM) and provide detailed description of what happens instead. First few words of every message is quite enough, i just need to be able to identify the dialogues you are seeing.
