This cartridge will teach you how to use the Wherigo Player and give you an idea of what you can do with the platform.

About This Cartridge

Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing location based adventures that combine virtual elements with the real world using a GPS device.

This 15 minute adventure style tutorial cartridge will teach you the basics of using the Wherigo player interface. Take your GPS device outside to begin the experience.

Starting Location

You'll need to be able to walk at least 50 meters away from your starting location in order to play. Try to find an open area where you can view most of the sky.

Starting to get around the trouble, this was helpful. After learning that downloading a file directly to the Android phone would not work but dowloading with the PC, for which I needed to learn that IE doesn't allow me to log in to download but Google Chrome does. Then walking my meters and meters and learning that the GPS was off in the App although it was on on the phone (?). So here I am searching where to put the recognition code. And I tell you I will find it. It is fun but also a but cumbersome. As I am a newbee this will be fixed. Thank you for providing this starter help.
