    Startup location offset to west

    When I start Cachly, it identifies my current location, but then moves some distance to the west, maybe 30 miles or so, and displays the caches there. I can easily move back to the location beacon, which is always east of where the display has settled, and then refreshing the caches shows the local ones, but it would be a lot better if I didn't have to do that. Once I've done it, Cachly behaves normally. This has been happening for the last couple of months. Before that, it started up where I was. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening?

    What I found confusing was that in order to send a field note, you have to "Send Log Now", which looks a lot like posting a public log...which I didn't want to do. Would iOS allow the act of switching on "Save as Field Note" to change the text in the top line from "Send Log Now" to "Send Field Note Now"? That would make the interface more intuitive.

    Thanks, Team DEMP. Let me make sure I have this right. I need to turn on Send Log Now as well as Save as Field Note, and then the Send Now function is activated. When I then click on Send Now, what I wrote will show up as a field note on the website but not as a public found log. If I turn off Save as Field Note and click on Send Now, that will send what I've written as a public found log. Right? If so, may I make a suggestion? If there's a way to have that Save as Field Note switch toggle between Save as Field Note and Save as Log, that might be clearer. That is, it should behave as a radio button rather than a check box. I don't know enough about the iOS interface to know whether that would be possible, or practical, or could be implemented clearly.

    Not sure if this belongs here, but it's the closest match among existing threads. I've just moved to Cachly because the old advanced Groundspeak app is going away. I've gotten into the habit of saving a field note after each find with the time and a few notes to myself so I'll remember the find later. Then, back at a computer with a real keyboard, I click on my user name and get a prompt to review my field notes that are pending on the site. I can use my notes to myself to help me write a found note to post publicly. That way I never forget a find, and I log them in the order I found them. I turned the Save as Field Note option on and Send Log Now option off, and entered a note on a find yesterday. It didn't show up on the website. Then again, I didn't see a button on the Cachly app to send the note. What am I missing?
