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. Tapping the cloud download icon to the right of the PQ name will download the PQ to your phone.
When you tap the cloud download icon you will go to the screen of your existing Offline Lists. If you tap an exiting list then the Pockey Query will be downloaded into that list. Alternatively you can create a new list by tapping the + in the top right corner.
When the download is completed, the cloud download icon will be replaced by a checkmark.
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.
This screen will list locations saved within Cachly such as when you drop a pin on a map and select Save Location for that pin. When one or more saved locations are listed, you can select the three dots on the right of that location to Share the location or Copy Coordinates for that location. To delete a Saved Location, swipe left on the location and select Delete.
Highlights are synced across devices using iCloud. Sometimes highlights get out of sync, in which case select this option and tap Manually Sync Highlights. This will resolve any issues you have.
Details of caches which are highlighted are maintained in iCloud.
You can delete highlights by color or all highlights by tapping the appropriate item.
This screen will indicate how many caches are highlighted in total.
If you would like to save your highlighted caches to a list then tap "Restore Caches From Highlights". You will then be able to select a list (Online or Offline) to which the highlighted caches are saved to. You can also save to e new list (Offline or Online). How to do this is explained in the section on Offline and Online Lists
The default label for the highlight colors is the name of the colors. You can edit the label to help you remember what the highlight is used for. For example you might highlight the caches that are on your "To Do" list with a black color. You could then edit the label from "Black" to "Must Do" or something similar.
Import from Dropbox
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
The feature allows you to transfer .gpx or .zip files to Cachly using the File Sharing feature.
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
