    Bunkshyde got a reaction from Nic Hubbard in Waypoint - New and Edit Problems with Lon and Lat   
    Thanks Nic,
    I am travelling in northern Australia (Cape York) and just found some (rare) mobile data signal. 
    I updated Cachly to 5.2.2 (8) and can no longer replicate the problem
    Thanks for the prompt response.

    Bunkshyde reacted to Team DEMP in 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.

    Bunkshyde got a reaction from Nic Hubbard in 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.

    Nic,
    I did quite a bit of caching on my recent Christmas Holiday (it's summer downunder!) and I am now a complete Cachly convert - I love it!
    Version 2.0 was GREAT and 2.0.1 is even GREATER and then today I get 2.0.2 - it's like Christmas for Geocachers every few weeks :-)
    There is one feature from Geosphere which I always found useful and wanted to see if you would consider its inclusion in Cachly at some point - actually its two related things.. They are similar to the earlier posting called "Bearing Indication" which you liked but take it a step further I think...
    1) Could the option be made available to display a List (offline or otherwise) by direction. Eg Choose "North" and the list shows only caches between NNE and NNW in ascending order of distance. Ditto for all the other key points on the compass (N, NNE, NE, ENE, E,...). This is VERY useful if you are driving (or walking a trail) in a particular direction as it avoids you being shown the caches behind you or out of reach to the side but closer than the next one in front.
    2) Could the List (offline or otherwise) be enhanced with a small compass directional arrow. This would also make it easier to see the next cache ahead. Rather than try to explain this in words, I have attached a screen shot as a guide (it's from the now apparently unsupported Geosphere which does this rather well)

    Bunkshyde reacted to rragan in List UI view   
    There are 2 things missing from the List view that I enjoy in Geosphere. One is the live directional pointer telling me which of the next list entries would be best to seek next since they are in the same direction. Another is the owner/location which is an option. You can see either the owner or the location. Knowing the owner can influence which I choose to do from the list. I typically keep it set to owner because location always shows California, USA which for local search at home never really varies. When traveling or viewing offline lists the location can be more interesting than the CO.    Fitting these into the current UI without more vertical real estate, which I would not like, is tricky. I don't need the line with the difficulty, terrain, size headings but I can see how this would help a beginner. Changing these to a D, T, S and putting them on the same line as the rating would free up that space but would risk being somewhat more obscure. The number of trackable's in the cache is mildly interesting but more often than not just shows zero. Removing that or omitting it when zero wouldn't really buy much space though.    I don't have an answer for this but maybe you're UI designer can think about it some. The directional arrow would require live display though.

    Welcome to Cachly!
    This is something that I do have on our feature list, and I hope to get it added by our 2.1 version. Stay tuned!

    You can also buy more time by putting the device in Low Power Mode via Battery in Settings. This turns off some things you likely won't miss and will extend your battery time. It auto exits this mode once you charge back to over 80%.

    I'd heard on the Geosphere Forums that your customer support was second to none and now I know the rumours are true!!
    I hadn't properly connected the Location icon with the GPS as I was under the impression that Location came from multiple sources (incl internet routers, wifi & GPS). If it's that clearcut, then you've just locked me onto another important tool for managing battery performance in the field.
    Thanks also for the Airplane Mode tip - hadn't hooked into that one either!!
    Think I'll go back to the Geosphere Forum now and see if I can drum up some more customers for you - you deserve them

    I'm a longtime Geosphere user as well. I agree it can drain the battery quickly unless the GPS turned off. One big difference between Geosphere and Cahly though appears to be in the device Privacy Settings. Cachly has the "while using app" option under location services. Geosphere has "always".
    I've made an almost 100% switch to Cachly. Perhaps with version 2.0 I'll complete that swith complete that switch.

    Yes, Geosphere has access to accessing your location even when you have left the app, so it could be using GPS and battery while you are not actively in the app. 
    Cachly doesn't do this, and only uses GPS while the app is active.

    One thing you can do to give you a hint as to which apps are using GPS is to go to your iOS Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services. You will see the location icon next to apps that have recently used your location.
    Cachly 2.0 will be out on December 5th, so make sure to update!
