    Integration with the Shortcuts app

    I like this request! Not sure when I would get around to build in this integration but it would be a really fun feature to add!

    Integration with the Shortcuts app

    The free iOS Shortcuts app adds a considerable degree of automation and flexibility capabilities to other apps that support it. This includes the ability to trigger a shortcut with a voice command rather than having to manually locate it within Shortcuts to run it. So for me, integration of Cachly with Shortcuts could simplify some actions that I routinely perform. Here is one example that would simplify my Cachly workflow: 1. When placing caches, the way that works the best for me is to create an offline cache and then try to navigate to it, adjusting coordinates as necessary to get close. The process isn't complicated but does involve several steps just to create the offline cache: go to Live view, click on "current location" icon, click the three dots, select "Create an offline cache," choose the desired offline list, add a name for the new cache in the resulting dialog, save. A very helpful shortcut would capture the current coordinates and, with a preselected offline list, bring up the dialog so that only the name had to be filled in. Thus with a Siri voice command such as "Create offline cache" to launch the shortcut, all of the manual steps except entering the cache name and saving would be automatically performed. This would be especially helpful when scouting for possible cache locations since an offline cache for a likely spot could be quickly created with minimal manual intervention. For those not familiar with the Shortcuts app, here is a recent article outlining a few illustrations of its capabilities: http://bit.ly/2RYl0YR. Thanks!

    Huge Columbia (South America) Map

    It is normal depending on the terrain of the region. You need more than 4GB of space - more like 8GB free to download it. If you are close to 8GB free, maybe you can make sense by cleaning up message files, photos and music as they usually take up the most space. iOS also needs some free space so it might complain even when you show 8GB free.
  6. Hi, I was curious abaout geocaching in Columbia (South America) and downloaded the map. When I tried to download the extras I got a warning: not enough space. Thats when I saw that the map takes 400 MG but the extras 4 GB! Is this normal? Best, David

    Standard Map for England

    Standard Maps are the old offline maps that are no longer updated. Premium Offline Maps are our next generation maps that render lightning fast and are updated every few weeks. Please see: https://medium.com/@cachly/cachly-5-0-feature-new-offline-maps-with-contours-and-hillshades-c9c65bad8734

    Standard Map for England

    I've been using Cachly for years. Recently I have noticed that the Standard Map for England has serious rendering problems. I have seen several instances where Cachly shows footpaths which never had access, and conversely omits established rights of way. These are NOT instances where the Cachly map is just a few months/years out-of-date.

    Cache radiuses not always showing

    Working on fixing the issue...

    Cache radiuses not always showing

    Oh. I see what you are saying. Yeah it looks like it works right with Google Maps. I’d like if it worked for Apple Maps too, but at least there’s a workaround

    Cachly not sending logs to geocaching.com

    Happy to help!
  13. Many thanks for such a quick response Nic Hubbard. I have since checked my drafts and I think that all eight of the logs listed were caches that didn’t go through to geocaching.com, but by luck I noticed that and logged them directly to geocaching.com. On Cachly I had the ‘Save as draft’ button on so you may have found the answer to my problem. I have now turned that button ‘off’ and hope that will fix my problem in future. As you can tell I am not at all tech savvy so thanks very much for your help.

    Cachly not sending logs to geocaching.com

    Have you checked your Drafts on geocaching.com to make sure that you haven't been sending your logs as Drafts? https://www.geocaching.com/account/drafts
  15. Found the cache, tagged it as found in cachly. Went to pending geocache logs and wrote the log (with an Apple IOS emoji) at the end of the log. Hit the send log now and there is no error message - but the log never reaches geocaching .com. Been happening a while now, most annoying, as I have no idea how many logs have disappeared. Is there a fix in the future? I use a lot of emojis, and have just noticed this issue - do I have to write all my logs on geocaching.com in the future

    TomTom GO

    Thanks, Nic, that's great news.

    TomTom GO

    Thanks for letting me know that Tom Tom has finally implemented this! I have added this to our internal version and it works great. Will get it added to Cachly 6.0.

    TomTom GO

    I've found this thread by searching this forum because today I purchased a subscription to TomTom Go because my TomTom Go 520 is now dead. It appears that in an update posted during November, 2019, TomTom has at long last, implemented a Custom URL scheme. TomTom Forum Thread My question is, will this work with Cachly and if it will, how would I go about implementing it? TIA, biggles1024

    Cache radiuses not always showing

    Hmm, I am testing this and can't replicate it. Are you searching for that GC and then loading more caches in the area?

    I just tried google maps and I see the same problem for GC81A0V.

    I am only seeing the bug in Apple Maps, is that what you are seeing too?

    Show official Geocaching checker

    c:geo Is not an official Geocaching partner and doesn’t follow the rules that partners like Cachly must follow. c:geo inappropriately screen scrapes the geocaching.com web page to provide their information. Currently, the Geocaching team doesn’t provide a way for partners to surface that info in their application through the official interface that must be used. When Geocaching.com does provide a means to do this, I’m sure Cachly will quickly support that change.
  23. Hi, yesterday I had a conversation with a befriended owner and complained to him that the checker promised in his listing is missing. It turned out that there is a checker, the official one from Geocaching.com. When I remarked that you can't see it in any app he said, c:geo can do that. Did they use any dirty tricks, or is it something that could be integrated into Cachly too? Best, David

    Cache radiuses not always showing

    Here’s an even worse case, but, at first it was not like this. However I looked at a cache, then went back to the map and this is what I then saw. I tapped one of them so you can see the code for it. But I don’t think these were missing the radius at first. It was only after I looked at the cache details of one and then went back.

    Thanks. Looks like there is a bug here, will get it fixed.

    It's GC81A0V https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC81A0V

    Cache radiuses not always showing

    Can you let me know the GC code of that specific cache so I can look into it?
  28. I realize now that some types of caches (such as letterboxes) don't show a cache radius because they are not at the posted coordinates, but I'm seeing even regular caches that do not show a radius when this option is enabled. Why is this? See the attached image. For example the cache at the top middle. Is this a bug? I'm running on an iPhone 11 with iOS 13.3. I don't show it in the picture, but there's also a Mystery cache nearby that has no radius, however I don't believe that cache is not at the coordinates. Rather it has a puzzle box at the location. Should that have a radius or not?
