    Multiple log templates

    I'm sure it's been asked before, but wondering how far down the development tree is the ability to have multiple log templates. Or ideally, a seperate template for each log type (Find, dnf, need maintenance etc) this would be really handy.

    Cachly 2.1 unified database

    A little off topic, but I guess there are a lot of "refugees" using Cachly! Great to see an active developer again

    To expand a bit, Geosphere has the ability to display the proximity circles as an overlay on the map, and it's also set to only show on physical waypoints - posted coordinates for physical cache types, and multi-stage and final waypoints. (reference points, parking/trailhead/virtual etc are not relevant for proximity concerns and so don't show the circle). It's a very useful feature, especially when planning for cache placement in a busier area.

    Log icons on map popup

    I do have this on our list for offline lists. Just need to design how it would look.

    Open cache from pending logs

    Hi, Thanks for creating the best geocaching app out there. I often save finds while in the field, and then compose and submit the logs when I get home. What would really be a good feature for this workflow, is the ability to return to the cache listing from the pending log view. Today, I have to search for the cache ID to find it, which is a bit cumbersome. I typically do this to read through the description to get input on my log, and for mysteries I like to have a look at my cache notes to see when I solved it, etc. Kind regards, Ketil

    Dropped Pin Radius

    I was planting some caches this weekend in a location that had none. I knew that I wanted to plant several, and was trying to scope out locations. What was challenging is that I had to guesstimate that they were at least .1 miles away from each other. It would be nice to be able to drop a pin that had the .1 mile radius marker on it. Just a convenience thing when trying to populate an area. Either way, thanks in advance! SB

    API limitation

    The Groundspeak API has a limit of 30 requests over 60 seconds.

    Yes you can! On the main screen click the 3 ... in the bottom right and go into Settings. Scroll in settings until you find Log Text. Click into that and whatever you write here will be posted to your log. You can also click the 3 ... in the top right of the Log Text screen, select Insert Keyword and you'll see a list of shortcuts to add. I'm not a "trackable" guy but I think what you want is ... when you are creating your log, scroll to & click Trackable Drop/Visit. On that screen, click the 3 ... in the top right and select All Visted. Those work for you?

    Mark Pocket Queries as Downloaded

    After a Pocket Query is downloaded on the "Pocket Queries" screen, there is no indication left behind that the download has completed and when it was last done. I think it would be a nice addition to Cachly if the individual Queries could be marked in some way (a background or typeface colour change maybe) to indicate that they have already been downloaded. Not sure if it's possible to extend this by having the original colour return if the Pocket Query is refreshed at geocaching.com (which would indicate it needs re-downloading into Cachly). The addition of the date of download (space permitting) would also be a great feature.

    Adding WP with projection

    I just started to use Cachly, used L4C previously, like Cachly better! Thing missing for me is the option to add a WP (while doing a multi f.e.) based on a projection (giving bearing and distance). in L4C you can add a WP where you pick the point from which you want the projection to be calculated ( incl. other already stored WPs or current location), give bearing and distance and it will calculate and create the "WP+1" for you... I hope you understand I am asking for More then happy to explain in more details! thx!

    How to download the offline maps?

    On the main map page that is displayed when you launch Cachly, click on the map icon displayed at the bottom. It's the icon with 3 stacked squares. In the map window that opens, the top option is Download Offline Maps. Click Download Offline Maps, then Europe and then Belgium or whatever countries you want to have offline. I hope that helps.

    Send all logs

    Yes, this is a feature that we have been working on. However it isn't a quick and simple thing to add. Here is what has to happen with this feature: Upload pending logs, one at a time to the server. If pending log has a trackable to log, log each trackable one at a time. If pending log has images to upload, upload images one at a time. So there are quite a few working pieces to this feature. That being said, we are still actively working on it.

    Bulk Logging

    I was out caching today and found five caches. I logged each of these as finds and at the end of the day I had five Pending Geocache Logs (waiting to be posted as field notes). It doesn't look like there is a way to upload all of these field notes at one time rather than one at a time. Is this correct? Are there plans to include a way to upload in bulk? It doesn't take too long to upload five caches individually, but it might get a bit tedious if one has 20 or 30 finds waiting to be uploaded as field notes.

    Filter Options for 3.0

    I would add a filter for unfound caches. There seems to be a few out there.

    Offline maps easier for users

    That probably is a good idea. Just don't include a video telling us what a cache is.... OK nasty attack on official app.

    Here's some snippets from the GSAK FAQ on Facebook related to corrected coordinates. Might just provide some perspective and the sometimes complex options/interactions... 3.4: What is the easiest way to enter corrected coordinates in GSAK? A: There are correct and incorrect ways to enter corrected coordinates in GSAK. I will not point out the incorrect ways. 1. Open the GSAK database with the cache you want to correct. 2. Use one of the following methods to open the Corrected Coordinates window: a. Double click in the Corrected Coordinates Indicator column for desired cache. b. Right click cache and choose the Corrected Coordinates… menu item. c. Highlight cache then choose the Waypoint menu then the Corrected Coordinates... menu. 3. The Corrected Coordinates window will appear with the corrected coordinates currently filled in the Lat/Lon box. If you have not corrected them in the past, the coordinates showing will be the original coordinates entered by the cache owner. 4. In the Lat/Lon box enter the actual corrected coordinates. 5. At the bottom of the window check the Force elevation refresh check box. 6. Click the OK button to save the coordinates. If you correct the coordinates with the steps above, those coordinates will NOT be overwritten by a PQ. If you correct coordinates in GSAK by using the API to Refresh Cache Data and download corrected coordinates that you have entered on geocaching.com, these corrected coordinates WILL be overwritten by a pocket query and the yellow corrected coordinates indicator will be removed. By using the method above, you are ensuring that a pocket query will not ever overwrite your corrected coordinates. If you did enter your corrected coordinates on geocaching.com and then downloaded them using Refresh Cache Data, the corrected method will be shown in the bottom right corner of the Corrected Coordinates window as “Type: api”. Simply clicking the OK button on this window will now change it to “Type: gui” and protect it from being overwritten. If yours says “Type: api” then the coordinates are susceptible to being overwritten. More information 3.5: What are the issues regarding the use of corrected coordinates from geocaching.com? A: There are multiple ways to download caches from gc.com. For this question it is assumed the coordinates on the cache page were changed using the built in capability provided on gc.com for changing coordinates. GPX based downloads treat the changed coordinates as the posted coordinates. The 'Refresh Cache Data..." API does recognize the concept of "corrected coordinates" and transfers both original and corrected. This is the case for: 1) Downloading the GPX file for an individual cache directly using the GPX File button. 2) Creating a PQ that contains caches with manually, online corrected coordinates. a) Downloading the PQ manually Downloading the PQ via the API If you download a new PQ onto of your existing DB containing corrected coordinates, the corrected coordinates will revert back to posted coordinates. Doing a refresh of cache data will fix everything. The short answer is, you can download caches containing corrected coordinates, but you need to run the refresh cache data API to get the corrected coordinates indicator. Alternatively, you can just correct the coordinates in GSAK and they will not be overwritten by any download method. To learn how to refresh cache data see question 5.1.

    No radius for letterboxes

    Letterboxes are not necessarily at the given location. A "true" letterbox usually requires following some set of instructions to find the final cache location. A letterbox hybrid can be set up either like a traditional geocache (where its hidden at the given location) or it can be set up like a traditional letterbox (where its NOT hidden at the given location). You can't really tell which way any given letterbox is hidden without reading the description.

    Hi, currently when looking at a cache and selecting ‘View on geocaching.com’, the page appears in a portal inside Cachly and it's another step to open in Safari. The reason for wanting to view on the GS site, is to get the full power of both the site and Safari. Maybe most people, or Nic, appreciate the current behaviour; but on the chance they're all silently suffering like me, thought I'd post this

    Cachly updates like any iPhone app. On your phone and usually on your phone's first screen of icons is a blue icon labeled App Store. Click the App Store icon and once opened click Updates in the bottom right of the screen. If you are configured to auto update, there are probably no apps showing that need to be updated as your phone does it for you behinds the scenes. If you are set to manual updates, each app will have an Update button listed and you just click Update for each app. You might have already been updated to the latest version depending on your phone settings. I hope that helps.
