OpenWIG: GPS support ready, gwc format possible

Version 0.2.0 of OpenWIG has crude support for Bluetooth GPS modules. Plus a Play Anywhere mode, so you can play the included Zooventure Level Two regardless of where you live.

In other news: misch of geocaching.cz said that the gwc format doesn't look at all difficult to him. And that he would probably be able to decode it.
That means that OpenWIG will probably have support for original Wherigo Player cartridges, and that means that you will be able to play full-featured Wherigo on your mobile phone!
Isn't that just wonderful?

It would be great if you could enable entering of coordinates by hand again, in future version.

I don't have bluetooth mobile phone, but I would like to test (and play) cartridges, too.

If someone wants to cheat, he/she can cheat even know. It is far too easy to log any cartridge as completed :((. So I don't think "GPS-only" mode is protection from cheaters.
