  1. Can you post a screen shot? Here is mine in English. It is the FTF Indicator option in the screen shot.
  2. FTF Is enabled and configured in the main settings screen. You tap “ ... More “ in the bottom right of the main screen and then select Settings. Enable the FTF indicator so it shows green. FTF will display regardless of the selected map.
  3. Unless you installed other keyboards like Google or Swype (if they are still around), you are using the default that comes with the iPhone. I'm not sure why you are getting it. I didn't read the link that Nic posted to see if it's somehow language/environment specific.
  4. I did a voice recorded log you can view at https://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=a603f761-3a98-4d4c-b0a8-a8dfed0ae473 and there's no symbol at the end. I tried with the default keyboard and Google keyboard selected and neither added the odd special character. I even tried with an exclamation point at the end.
  5. I can see it in Chrome on my desktop but not on my mobile. You can see it as the last character in the log. When I inspect/view source on the page I see a blank space. Haven't had a chance to test what I see when trying.
  6. When viewing on my desktop, I see the OBJ icon. Do you only see this when using speech-to-text to enter the log? Which speech-to-text is being used as it can be different based on the keyboard being used. The default keyboard is different from the google keyboard when using speech-to-text. I'm sure there are other possible keyboards that provide speech-to-text. Knowing which keyboard being used might help further troubleshooting. I will also try to test out posting a log to my own cache using the default Apple keyboard and Google keyboard to see if I can reproduce too.
  7. I don’t see anything odd at the end of your log, at least when viewed on my phone. See attached screenshot. I can check on a desktop after I get to work.

    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.

    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.

    Import GPX file

    Looks like Apple broke this functionality for many apps. I didn't pick up on any solution in that thread. Every time someone claimed it was resolved, I'd expect updating to the next iOS patch or updating another installed app that uses the file extension (eg GPX) would cause the iOS bug to resurface.

    Import GPX file

    For me, if you update Cachly AFTER an iOS13 upgrade (base or patch), the GPX option was there. If you upgraded iOS13 but have not installed a new version of Cachly, the option wasn't there for GPX. Have you updated Cachly after your most recent iOS 13 upgrade?

    Bulk Log - Pending Logs

    My follow-up to Nic's response is something you can consider but it is outside of Cachly using another fine tool called https://www.cachetur.no . Cachetur can do many things but specific to your situation, you would log in Cachly as normal and save as pending logs. When complete for the day with your logging in cachy, go to the Pending logs screen and Export .txt file. Send this to your yourself via email and on Cachetur, you would upload your field notes which is the .txt file exported from Cachly. This feature is more to support a traditional GPSr but the file format is the same. Once in cachetur you can apply cachetur template(s) to selected logs, bulk edit logs, etc. When completed, you can publish them to GC from cachetur. Just an option to consider leveraging some other products that work well in partnership with Cachly.

    Import GPX file

    There seems to be an odd behavior in updating to iOS13 related to Cachly recognizing the GPX extension. The developer has reached out to Apple to see why iOS 13 breaks this connection where previous iOS upgrades were fine. The situation resolves itself if you update Cachly AFTER you upgrade to iOS13 or an iOS13 patch such as 13.0.1 or 13.0.2. If you haven't yet updated to the latest Cachly in the app store, doing so should re-create the link. If you update iOS13 (or a patch) later, it will likely break the connection to GPX again.

    Keeping offline lists in sync with online lists and PQs

    I use lists as my main exchange/sharing approach between applications (GC, Cachly, Project-GC and Cachetur). I usually stay with using an online list until I'm pretty sure that I am done making changes but should I make a change in an offline list that I want to use online or in another app, I just send the offline caches back to the online list within Cachly. This is possible but it's not some magic background process and requires you to take an action. I need to do something similar if I use Cachetur/Project-GC and add a cache to a trip that I want included in my list. Adding the same target option for online lists to an existing offline list was suggested previously and captured as a future enhancement request. I think the option to have a PQ replace an existing list is something that could be done but somewhat dangerous. Imagine someone has a list that isn't just from a single PQ and they say to replace it. All the other caches are gone. Many (myself included) would say that they should understand the consequences of their actions, but we aren't the ones getting support calls from users that blew away something they can't easily recover.

    2 devices

    As long as you are connecting to the Apple App Store using the same Apple Id, you should be able to download Cachly across multiple devices. You need to be on iOS 10 or later.

    Error Request failed: bad request (400)

    If you haven't, try to logout and log back in again. Tap More at the bottom of the main screen and then tap Logout in the top right of the More screen? Maybe logging out and back in again, if you haven't already tried, might reset things for you.
  17. Please see http://www.cach.ly/support/index.php?/topic/1663-issue-with-trackables-not-a-supported-property/ . Hopefully Geocaching HQ resolves this on their end today.

    Issue with trackables "not a supported property"

    Looks to be a message sent my Geocaching when Cachly interacts via the API. I saw on Facebook that someone posted a similar screenshot and the analysis indicates that Geocaching is prepping a new update to their site and it caused this error. The Cachly developer expects this to get resolved by Geocaching HQ today.

    Does Cachly not load all Caches?

    Geocaching.com, not Cachly, places limits on requests. These limits are on total numbers and the rate at which you can download. Cachly had to honor the limit and can't fire off concurrent requests. It could create a queue but loading caches in Live is not really a queue model. The max number, currently 100, could be increased, but then users might quickly hit their limit or put an unnecessary list on the Geocaching infrastructure. You can adjust the number of caches per tap to request in Settings / Live Search and set it up to 100, if you haven't already done so. You might be better served by creating an online list on the GC website and then accessing the online list via Cachly, or saving the online list as an offline list. Using the right tool to get the job done might serve you better. I often use Cachly, cachetur, Project GC and the Geocaching website together as an optimal approach.

    Does Cachly not load all Caches?

    I determined one of the caches in your screen and then loaded that cache in Live view. I then kept loading more and they all loaded for me. See the screenshot below. You have a large number of caches loaded in your Live view screen - might you have got your daily limit of caches that geocaching.Com allows you to load? You can check by going to More in the bottom right of the main Cachly screen, then selecting Usage and scrolling down within the Usage screen.

    Switching to Google Maps

    Where are you struggling to get back to the live screen from? From the mapping app you launched or a different screen in Cachly? If it is from the mapping app, which app did you launch and which phone do you have? You should be able to switch back to Cachly using the standard iPhone options for moving between applications.

    Switching to Google Maps

    There are 2 possible answers to your question. 1) When you start navigating to the cache, you can tap the icon on the bottom right of the map that looks like 3 stacked pieces of paper and select a different map to use. 2) If you want to launch turn by turn navigation, once you start navigating you tap the ... in the top right of the Cachly screen and that will display the available options you have installed on your phone such as Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc. Your list will be specific to what you have installed.

    Export list to GPX as non-zip file

    You can import a zipped GPX file into cachly today. If you have an email with the zip file, open the email and open the zip file. Tap your mail program's Share icon and you should see Cachly listed. Importing a zip and GPX is the same process. If the above doesn't work for you, which iPhone mail program are you using and which step in the process stops you from proceeding?
  24. Being able to present an option on waypoints to set them as the corrected coordinates is an enhancement that is on the list. Not sure if your screenshot is one of the longhorn geoart caches but that is the series where the discussion for this surfaced.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Not sure but it looks like the trail is in the premium map screen you posted. The initial screen shot appears to have a use specific style applied to a portion of the trail? There's no current way within Cachly for you to adjust the style. The premium maps are based on OpenStreetMaps.org and you are free to sign up and adjust the base OSM map. From a quick look, mapy.cz is also based on OSM and they might be adding additional layers?
