    new to cachly - multiple questions

    1) click the gear icon at the top of the map where you'd enter the GC code, etc and you'll have filters to adjust what is displayed, including hiding your finds. 2) padlock stops manual map rotation. Automatic map rotation and audio or manual planning and zoning will still work. 3) you can't adjust the info displayed when you click on the icon. Clicking on the pop-up will display the full cache screen within the app which includes the cache owner. 4) not currently a way which is an iOS constraint as far as I know. 5) GC needs to be entered. The following is supposedly undergoing changes for the next release so the behavior might change. I hope the above helps.

    Note pad

    I use the Cache Note on the cache page screen that shows Description, Hint, etc. The cache note two-way syncs to Geocaching.com with the Personal notes.

    DNF color in overview screen

    The traditional icons/color are a bit more obvious/natural then the pure color ones but I use it as a glancing reference. I'm ok with either but if I needed to vote, I'd select the traditional site ones - yellow smile, blue frown, etc.

    For me it makes sense to be separate because you can do the following based on which are checked... Upload public log immediately Upload field note immediately Upload public log later Upload field note later You need 2 options that are separate to handle those 4 scenarios. At least I think you can do all 4 - I really just use #1 myself.

    Offline GPX import - Missing data

    What might help the developer is if you can create a GPX file with an example of each of the above and upload/email it him. He can then look at what GSAK is outputting. Don't send a large file but if you can create a GPX with one cache for each of the above I'm sure it would expedite troubleshooting. Are you using a specific output macro or just exporting the waypoints from your Finds database to GPX?

    You can send field notes in real time with send now or you can not send now and send later such as when you are home on wifi. But you have to send them at some point. Currently you must send one by one, if you have multiple, but a future release will allow a bulk send. Does that help?

    Downloading PQs from computer

    Just wondering if the question might be that when he wants to load a new PQ onto his phone, can it be done without internet access available? I don't think so but I might be mistaken on some trick. The cacher could download all the PQs if his phone as space and then switch within the app, but based on how I read the original question, they want to load PQs as they enter areas, and those areas don't have internet access.
  8. I might have missed this as an existing request but I couldn't turn up anything in search. On the main Cachly screen, if you click Logs at the bottom, it brings up your recent logs and shows my icon, the GC code, Found/Not Found/Maint/etc, date and log text but it doesn't show the cache type. Could the cache type (Traditional, Multi, Mystery, Virtual, etc) be displayed on this screen as well?

    Add cache type to Found/Not Found logs

    Darn that lame API. I should have known!

    Navigate to dropped pin

    I did this multiple times today so it should be working as you want. You can't do it from the main map screen but once you select a cache and click the Navigate to Cache button, on the map that is displayed you can click to place a new point and then Set as Target as Nic described above. Just make sure you are on the Navigate to Cache screen first.

    Cachly vs Geocaching App Online Review

    Wherever the official app had the advantage (really a feature that Cachly couldn't provide) it's where Groundspeak doesn't provide a viable mechanism for apps like Cachly that must conform to their API to provide the feature - messaging, "live" view as you drive, etc.

    pre-registered log for each type of log ?

    Not yet today but this request has been made...

    Bookmark Lists

    I would personally prefer the current sort order over alpha. It matches what I've been recently doing with those most recently used bookmarks at the top of the Cachly list. Putting them in Alpha wouldn't kill me but it would be less productive for me in how many I have and how I work with them. Just one person's opinion.
  14. Team DEMP

    Bookmark Lists

    The order appears to be based on the last time the bookmark list was updated (cache added or removed). When using Bookmarks on the geocaching.com site, the site auto selects the last one that was added to so you don't need to reselect, but when you want to change it lists them alphabetically. For me, the order that Cachly shows makes the most sense but I have < 10 bookmark lists. I could see someone with 50+ not hoping they spot the specific list while scrolling though. (Side note: I'd like to see the throttling level adjusted on the forum. I've run into it a few times and need to hope I waited long enough before trying again).

    Moving saved lists from classic app to Cachly

    This specific classic feature had been discussed a lot in the Geocaching forums. It seems to be data that is stored only on the phone and not synced to the Geocaching website. Classic users are asking about the same thing moving to the new official app and I haven't yet seen anyone indicate an approach. I don't know what will happen come March 23rd and if the app won't launch or you can launch it but not access new caches, etc? If you don't know either you might start at least creating a text file on your computer with whatever you don't want to lose.

    Newbie on Cachly

    The 27k cache GPX file is too large for the current version of Cachly. The developer is working on supporting larger GPX files in an upcoming release. Until then, you can load multiple GPX files so split the GPX you have if you really need 27k caches loaded on the device at the same time.

    Another approach when logging is to enable the Save As Field Note option. You can then edit all your logs as field notes on the Geocaching.Com site vs directly uploading to the respective cache pages.

    After you log a cache where it's not sent immediately, it will show under your pending logs list. At the bottom of the main window on the right is an icon for More. Click More and in the screen that opens is an option near the top for Pending Geocache Logs. When you click into that all your pending logs are displayed. You can edit any pending log by clicking it in the list. You can change it there from Found to Not Found. In the list of Pending Logs, if you slide one to the left in the list, you will see a standard iOS Delete option to completely remove the pending log. I hope that helps.

    Satellite Views

    Aha! On my iPad I see 39 ft displayed.

    Satellite Views

    I have an iPhone 6. For GC5FC5N I see the following in the distance scale: Apple Satellite Flyover 0-25-50 ft Google Satellite 0-25-50 ft Apple Satellite 0-50-100ft I can't zoom in any further on the above.

    Satellite Views

    It's not an urban area but it's not rural. I'm just not sure I'm looking at whatever it is that shows 39' resolution that was mentioned at the start.

    Satellite Views

    The cache I was looking at was a solved puzzle so I found another nearby that I don't see a difference on, but maybe I'm not sure how to tell there's a difference. I picked GC55PAK . When I zoom in as far as I can on Google Satellite or Apple Flyover, I see the same screenshot and can't zoom in farther on either. Both show 0 ... 25 ... 50 as the distance bar. How are you able to tell it's 39' vs 50' or is the image for my area 50' for both?

    Satellite Views

    I'm not seeing a difference between the 2 satellite zoom levels in a spot I checked in NJ. I selected a cache and zoomed in as far as possible with Apple flyover selected and then selected Google satellite. The both show the exactly same framed spot in the Cachly screen. Is there Apple detail determined based on location? Am I doing something wrong or misunderstanding your analysis?

    Okay color me stupid

    Nic gave some specifics but I wanted to throw in some other thoughts. Offline maps and Pocket Queries (PQs) are 2 different features/functions that can be used independently or together. I use offline maps regardless of my access to a cellular network. I like the Open Street Maps which is what the offline maps are and I only switch to online maps if I want to use Google satellite view. Otherwise I use the offline maps. If you care about how much cellular data is being used (I don't), offline maps uses none of your data. It also seems faster to me loading the offline map vs the online, even when I have a full cellular signal. I use the offline maps without a Pocket Query (PQ) and just the live map view on the initial page when you launch Cachly. Folks use PQs for different reasons. You can use a PQ with an offline map or with an online map like Google or Apple maps. So to be total offline, you'd use offline downloaded maps and PQs, but they both work well even when online.

    Okay color me stupid

    I'll start high level which may be enough. See if this helps... 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 since it looks like you are in Rochester, NY, select North America, then United States and then New York or US Northeast. Do this while you are on Wifi. This one time download will finish and then will show listed under Offline Maps when you click the map icon displayed at the bottom of the main screen. If the above doesn't work or you get stuck, let us know and we'll try to unstick things. Edit: I took a screenshot of my map screen when you click the map icon (stacked squares) at the bottom of the main map displayed at launch. My screen show I've downloaded new Jersey, North Carolina and the US Northeast offline maps. These were downloaded by going thru the steps above and following the "Download Offline Maps" link at the top of my screenshot. You can see by the check mark that the active map being used by me is the offline US Northeast map that was downloaded.
