  1. I always wondered why the core platform for Groundspeak didn't allow for private images. I would leverage that feature to upload spoilers, etc attached to a cache note, etc. Not sure I'd leverage Cachly's app based approach as that's not global across apps/web sites. Plus, as beta testers, sometimes we need to blow things away and start over.
  2. The messaging feature is not available to 3rd party apps which is why everyone still needs to use the official app or website for this function. Groundspeak would need to open that up to the developers.

    Specify Live Load Number

    I recall this was previously asked/discussed but I couldn't find it while I'm still in my phone. This past weekend leading up to and after GeoWoodstock, I used random live caching in unplanned locations more than I normally do. I likely had no concern of going over my limit, but I normally just needed to load the closest couple of caches and not 50 like the function does today. This was more than just about my limit as the GC API was under extreme load and was very slow or timing out. If the number to load in live vote was user editable, that would be a useful addition.

    Navigating to waypoint - others visible

    Here's my experience... Launch a cache that has multiple waypoints. I used GC6GR7F which has 3 waypoints. When I tap Navigate to Cache, the map shows the main target waypoint and the 2 additional waypoints with the main waypoint as the destination. I can click on one of the additional waypoints displayed in the map, select Set as Target and the line moves to that waypoint while the other 2 remaining on the screen. Is there a different use case/flow @ChrisDen is taking where the additional Waypoints aren't displayed?

    Adopting Previously found caches--a problem?

    Your original post indicates all your adopted caches have previously been found by you. Is that still an accurate statement? If so, your last post in this thread says that you are seeing caches not found by you before it checks that you are the owner. But in your case, every owner cache is also a found. Can you send a screenshot of your search options settings - gear icon in the search bar of the Live screen. Again, with what I think is the same situation as you, if I filter out my hides AND/OR I filter out my finds, I see what I expect to see. If I exclude EITHER My Finds or My Hides, I don't see those adopted caches as I both found and own them. I see them displayed only if the search options are disabled for both Exclude My Finds AND Exclude My Hides in which case they all show as green map points with stars.

    Adopting Previously found caches--a problem?

    Just as a quick follow-up, I went into an adopted cache of mine and added it to a new list. I used basic data and it was added to a new offline list and shows as owned. I don't have a way to test an offline list that had the cache before I adopted it and if something isn't possibly getting updated after the cache is adopted.

    Adopting Previously found caches--a problem?

    I'm still confused on your workflow. I'm not suggesting there might not be an issue that needs to get dealt with. You indicate it's occurring in Live view but then reference updating offline lists - 2 different things. In Live view, do you have the default filter set to Exclude My Finds and Exclude My Hides? Since you are the original owner or adopted owner of all owned caches, that should filter them from the Live view. On the offline list piece, do you want your finds/owned in a list? I usually remove/filter them, but regardless, how are you updating the cache? If you are doing a basic update have you tried a full update? Have you tried removing the adopted cache and adding it back into the list? Some thoughts in case you haven't tried those yet.

    Adopting Previously found caches--a problem?

    It is working for me as I noted. I asked but didn't see answered if you are looking in Live view or an Offline list where you have the cache loaded? How is this a problem for you? What is it preventing or hindering you from doing in Cachly?

    Adopting Previously found caches--a problem?

    I have adopted caches that show in Cachly with the owners star. Not sure why it's causing a "big problem" for you in Cachly - what is the problem? Are you looking in Live view or an offline list that contains one of the caches?

  11. When you are logging a cache, to store the draft log locally, you want Send Log Now disabled (white) and Save as Draft enabled (green). After you submit that local draft log, you should see the More icon at the bottom of the main screen show the number 1 indicating 1 local draft log that needs to be sent to Geocaching.Com For a bit more detail on the above mentioned options see http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Log_Cache#Title_Bar Does that work for you now?

    Sticky Log Date

    Google keyboard has swipe and microphone if you want to try that and don't fear the Google machine.

    Sticky Log Date

    I'm not one to normally post that I'm not interested just because I don't see a big benefit but here I would really prefer efforts be focused on other features.

    Measure Distance tool

    Would be handy if it was possible to implement. I use it in Project GC when I'm guesstimating hiking distance between caches.

    Friend's logs

    I have considered doing this when I first arrive to cut down on my search times!

    Google indexing of the wiki

    Google has done a nice job of indexing the wiki content for anyone that searches without coming to the wiki first. My testing shows Google returning forum hits first (all grouped in the top search result) and then the most relevant Wiki pages. If people search for answers to their questions (a big IF), the effort put into the Wiki should definitely pay off. Nice job all!

    Getting GPX file on iPhone

    The 2 primary ways would be emailing it to yourself or using dropbox. http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Load_GPX_caches_by_email http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Load_GPX_caches_by_Dropbox

    Corrected Coordinates and Search Origination

    I moved the info to a new FAQ and linked to it from a few places. Feel free to edit, add other references, etc. http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/FAQ#Corrected_Coordinates_and_loading.2Fdisplaying_on_the_Live_Map

    Corrected Coordinates and Search Origination

    Would it be better suited to have that content listed on its own as a FAQ and then linked to from the various sections?

    Corrected Coordinates and Search Origination

    It is currently noted within http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/How_Tos#Add_Corrected_coordinates_to_a_Puzzle.2FUnknown_Cache . That wouldn't help the other place(s) that might also need to have the info presented in the results.

    Wherigo player

    Not sure where you are located, but you can use Project-GC to see activity of new caches. Wherigo caches placed by day in the US is viewable at https://project-gc.com/Statistics/HiddenPerDate?country=United+States&type[]=Wherigo+Cache&submit=Filter . But as I noted in my initial reply, the activity is a tiny percentage of new caches placed or caches that are found. There are many 1000's active in the US. I'm also not aware of dropping a Wherigo cartridge into notepad and the final coords being visible, but I never looked that hard.

    Wherigo player

    I've done a couple of them and though I'm sure a better user experience can be achieved, the amount of Wherigo caches and cachers is a tiny fraction of the other cache types. An effort, which is likely rather significant, would take away the limited resources from helping a much larger audience.

    Nice eyes! I didn't notice that looking at the thread on my phone. Time for new/stronger glasses!

    Learning Issues

    Not a problem and there are plenty more folks here to help. Maybe my patience comes from remotely helping my parents & in-laws since the 80s, though I normally have a lot more patience for folks that aren't my family! My suggestion selecting a different list was to just have the app open something and then re-read the list that was downloaded. It might be an option to delete the offline list you recently created and re-import the GPX from Dropbox. You can delete the offline list by selecting the Offline icon at the bottom of the screen and then next to your list, select the three dots ( ... ) and then select delete. Then go thru the steps you did earlier. Maybe this attempt, don't download the images when you do the Dropbox import and see how things end up.
