Pocket Queries[edit]

Pocket Queries are a premium member only feature.

This will connect Cachly with any Pocket Queries (PQ) available for download on [Geocaching.com]. If you have a PQ available for download, Cachly will list it along with the number of caches in the PQ and date/time the PQ was generated. Clicking the cloud download icon to the right of the PQ name will download the PQ to your phone. When the download is completed, the cloud download icon will be replaced by a checkmark. Each downloaded PQ will show as a new Offline List.

Note that your My Finds PQ is not one that can be downloaded. Geocaching.com does not show this as a downloadable PQ like it shows the others. You can download the PQ GPX file by another means and load it into Cachly from DropBox maybe or mailing it to yourself but you can't use this Pocket Query option.

Lists[edit]

This displays all your [Bookmark Lists] from geocaching.com. You can see the number of entries in the list and the name. Tapping one of them opens a screen with Map and List view options of the list contents. You can either use the back arrow to return to the previous screen or the ... action to select Save to Offline List or Export GPX. When you save to an Offline List, you get a copy of all the caches in the bookmark list local to Cachly. Note that if the list changes on geocaching.com, the changes are not synched to Cachly. If you want to be sure of having the latest version, a fresh import to an offline list is warranted.

This screen displays the Geocaching.com souvenirs that you have earned with the most recent at the top of the list.

To delete a Saved Location, swipe left on the location and select Delete.

Import from Dropbox[edit]

You must have the Dropbox App installed on your iOS device for this feature to work. When you select this action, you get a Dropbox screen showing folders and files. Navigate to a .gpx file or a .zip file containing a GPX and tap it. You return to Cachly where you complete the import process by either selecting an existing offline list or by naming a new one and importing into it.

Import from iTunes[edit]

The feature allows you to transfer .gpx or .zip files to Cachly using the File Sharing feature.

Backups[edit]

A backup is a zip file that contains a GPX for your offline lists and txt file of any pending logs. This feature provides a way to recover from an application or device issue. This is not an application restore but provides a way to recreate offline lists and handle any pending logs, should an incident occur.

This screen allows you to create a new backup, share an existing backup or delete all backups.

To create a new backup, click on the three dots in the top right of the screen and select Create Backup. A dialog is displayed that indicates the backup will be created in the background and when complete, will be listed on the Backups screen. The backup will be named with the date, time & user name of the logged in user.

To share the backup or store it off the device, click on the listed backup and you will be presented with a standard iOS share screen. The apps and options displayed are specific to your device. Select an appropriate app or action to act on the backed up file.

Tip: To remove your backups, click on the three dots in the top right of the screen and select Delete All Backups.

To restore from a backup:

- Download the backup zip locally to your desktop/notebook
- Expand/extract the backup zip file which will contain 1 named zip file for each offline list backed up
- Place each offline list backup zip on Dropbox or however you want to import into Cachly
- Import the individual zip/gpx files into a new Offline list that matches the name of the zip/gpx
