Unexpected crashes using Map functions in macOS Catalina

Since the release of macOS Catalina some users report crashes when using one of the map views in iCaching. Unfortunately these are caused by a bug in macOS. When using those views, the system should ask permission for iCaching to be able to access the location services. However, instead it crashes the application.

I reported this bug to Apple, but did not receive an answer (yet).

Luckily there is a workaround. You can manually grant iCaching permissions to the location services. That will fix the crashes.

  • Go to system preferences.
  • Open the ‘Privacy & Security pane’ and go to the ‘Privacy’ tab.
  • In the services list on the left side choose ‘Location Services’
  • And add iCaching to the list of applications on the right.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
