Yeah, I've heard Columbus isn't all the great. But we can (and do) laud it as free.
Not that I don't believe you, but we have a crapload of Bit's in my area, and I can have my pal check if he's seeing them. At which point I will ask if they used
to show up on Opencaching for Android, as I believe they did, and I even went out bitcaching with him once while I think he was using it. The author had taken that app off the marketplace (or whatever you call it for Android) for over a year, did some tinkering, and put it back up a few months ago. So I believe we will have to contact that author.
The fact remains there are other issues with the special cache types RVRoadTrip added in the early days of this site, and they are going to be a major hurdle in the move to the newer Opencaching.pl code base.
