    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    YES! I had turned these layers off because the map displaying was slow earlier. I also didn't know that parking lots are considered as "points of interest". The icons are very small but better than nothing. Thank you!
  2. Hi Nic Here a little input for a super improvement: Would it be possible to display the favorite points in percent? Especially if you are travelling in a unfamiliar area and don't want to miss the best caches, this would be a very useful function! Of course you should also be able to filter or sort by percentage. If the % display is output via the API, I guess it would be relatively easy to implement such a function. Thanks!

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Have a look at the pictures 4 and 5. 4) N47 23.390 E8 23.2605) N47 23.470 E8 23.375 And to be honest: I can't see any parking lots at all. So I could name thousands of places. On the old free maps the parking lots are all marked with a blue "P". This sign is missing on the new maps. And please don't tell me that the grey area is supposed to be a parking lot (Fifty Shades of Grey or what...?). Such a pure colouring simply gets completely lost. I can't spot a parking garage like that either. Here is another example between old and new maps: The waypoint shows a parking garage of the shopping mall (N47 23.214 E8 29.850) while the grey area across the street is a normal building (N47 23.155 E8 29.813). On this section you can also see the three bus stops, which are not shown on the new maps. Good to have both old and new maps available. In urban areas, the old maps are much superior, while in the forest and off-road the premium maps are more pleasant. Especially because of the elevation lines. But also here a last example: Location: N47 20.200 E8 22.045 A quick look at the old map shows me that there is a forest house and a parking lot. On the premium map I have no idea what it should be exactly. The Freizeitkarte-osm.de would also show a fountain with drinking water at this site. Please don't take this the wrong way. I like the premium maps because they are clear and show good elevation lines. They just aren't as premium as they could be on closer inspection.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Coords (all in Switzerland): 1) N47 22.500 E8 21.115 2) N47 22.200 E8 21.625 3) N47 23.300 E8 22.755 4) N47 23.390 E8 23.260 5) N47 23.470 E8 23.375 Sorry, this is the description vom Freizeitkarte-osm.de: In Switzerland, this means that only local residents or delivery services may drive on these roads. For all others there is a driving ban. You are right: A lot of information are of course not absolutely necessary (e.g. freestanding trees). These are just examples of how much more detailed these maps are. On the other hand, this information can often be a useful source. There are not so many fireplaces or fountains etc. in the forest. Much more important are of course the routing information. Are the roads passable or are there restrictions etc.? And of course parking lots or bus stops are also important information.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Hi Nic Here are the samples Cachly premium maps vs OSM based Freizeitkarte-osm.de maps. If needed I can also tell you the coords of this locations. A fountain (with drinking water) and a Picknick place are displayed. The light purple color shows streets with driving ban. The grey dotted line shows roads with restricted feeder service. A children's playground is displayed in the lower left corner. Free-standing trees are displayed. A bench seat is also visible. And again: roads with restricted feeder service. The arrows show a one-way street (the very small arrows on the premium maps are nearly invisible). There are also three parking lots, a church, a playground, a fountain and numerous inscriptions on public buildings. Parking lots, a petrol station and other information are also displayed here. Interestingly, the markings (parking spaces, public buildings, etc.) in urban areas are much better on the old standard maps than on the new premium maps. On https://www.freizeitkarte-osm.de/android/en/index.html you can still find a lot of information about the maps (design / imprint).

    New feature: display favorite points in percent %

    Yes, I just see in the API documentation that this value Favo-% does not exist. The value is basically calculated like this: Number of favorite points divided by number of premium member logs. Basic member logs do not count. @hidegoseek I don't agree. I prefer a cache with 20 finds and 90% FP over one with 250 FP but 1000 finds. Especially in Germany there are a lot of caches with hundreds or thousands of FP, but in % there is often a low number. In addition: activating two filters: "> 100 FP" and "> 50% FP" or something similar would give you all the possibilties.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    The premium cards are already a big step forward in Cachly. But I can just support the idea of ferda-mravenec. The possibility to show/hide details or even change the style would be sensational! My cache partner uses the Locus app on Android and when we are on the road she often has much better information on her (OSM) maps (e.g. display of fountains or fireplaces in the woods). Especially helpful is that she can see if a road is passable by car or if it is a one-way street!

    [SOLVED] Trackables from Fieldnotes not logged

    I sent it right away.

    [SOLVED] Trackables from Fieldnotes not logged

    I visited an event yesterday and tried to drop 6 trackables with a note log. Unfortunally only one trackable was dropped! Using Cachly 5.0.4.

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    I was shocked when I read today that Cachly has also removed the Friends feature! Above all, I do not understand why this violates the GDPR? 1.) The cachers who were affected accepted all my friendship requests. So they all agreed to let me see their "data". 2.) Even then, each one can block the API access to the public profile data in its profile. 3.) All the data you see in Cachly can also be accessed normally via a user's public profile (even if they are not "friends"). So why does Cachly have to block this function under the excuse of the Data Protection Regulation? And where exactly is the data protection regulation violated in this case? If that were the case Groundspeak would have to take all log entries off the net immediately and no user profile would be public anymore. Also Groundspeak should no longer show which friends logged which caches in the dashboard. Please explain why this step became necessary!

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    Here is the answer from the HQ: I hope they will implement this "request to follow" option soon. Interestingly, the opposite option "Do not allow Authorized Developer applications to access my public profile information" already exists in the profile. So it's a bit confusingly solved, but at least there's hope that the friends list will come back sometime. Nic, I'm sorry about the initial accusition against Cachly.
  12. Attila_G

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    Thank you Nic. I sent my question to GS.
  13. Attila_G

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    Ok, this means that Groundspeak does not allow the friends list in the app and it has nothing to do with the GDPR...
  14. Attila_G

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    To give a much more important example: The website Cach.ly uses Google Analytics and Google Fonts. For me as a European customer, it is precisely this information that needs to be listed in the website's privacy information, because every time I access this website my data is transferred to Google without my knowledge of it. This is an absolutely essential part of a website and exactly because of such violations companies in Europe are being sued. But on Cach.ly I can find neither an imprint nor the information about the person who is responsible for data protection and also no other data protection regulations. This would be much more important than the friends list in the app and above all it is a 100% violation of the GDPR. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=gdpr+in+the+usa

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    I know the possible fines regarding GDPR (I live and do business in Europe) but if so Groundspeak would be asked to pay first!! They store, control and make the data publicly available. They are the big player. But for Groundspeak it is obviously no problem to keep all this information public. So I don't understand why Cachly's blocking that information now. Cachly does not store any personal data! Only the public data of Groundspeak is displayed in the app. That's a big difference. This is about the simplest log and statistical data, which were published under a pseudonym. It's not like publishing someone's medical records with a full name. Should we not simply use common sense? By the way: The big fines are primarily directed against companies like Facebook, Google and other monster players. No small company has to expect a million-dollar lawsuit, and certainly not in the USA. No arm of Europeans has been that long. Moreover, it would never pay to seek an international trial for a small sum! Let's think a little further: If you really cared about data protection, then all logs would have to be blocked for public access! Only the cacheowners are allowed to see them, because the logs are directed to them. Of course, the statistics should no longer be accessible to anyone! Or just anonymized so you don't know who it belongs to anymore. In the future there would be no more phone jokers and no more hints in the (non-public) logs. Cool yeah! Quite insane, isn't it? After all, that's exactly the part of the game. I am fighting against this absolutely mindless implementation of data protection regulations. This was never in the spirit of the legislator! That is why no European court will deal with such kind of "violations".

    Google Maps in 4.3?

    What's happend to Google Maps in Cachly 4.3? Please don't tell me that those maps are gone!
  17. Attila_G

    Google Maps in 4.3?

    I would prefer to hide the unnecessary maps or better: a reorder function! Showing the last 5 recent used maps changes the order each time. A fixed order makes it easier.
  18. Attila_G

    Google Maps in 4.3?

    Thanks for pointing that out. I'm familiar with the navigation method. Actually it would be enough to open Google Maps without "navigation" (just the location). But in that case I will wait for Cachly 5.

    Google Maps in 4.3?

    I don't use Apple maps. The road maps are an absolute disaster in Europe and the satellite maps are also often much worse than those of Google. Maybe Nic could add a shortcut to simply display the cache / waypoint coordinates on the Google Map App until Cachly 5.0 is ready. Currently you have to copy the coordinates, switch to Google Map App and paste them there again. Troublesome... If I had known that in advance, I would have stayed with Cachly 4.2.
  20. Attila_G

    Google Maps in 4.3?

    In that case, I can only hope Cachly 5 comes soon. Google Maps (especially the satellite images) are extremely valuable for searching. Otherwise I would like to point out this article again here: http://www.cach.ly/support/index.php?/topic/587-offline-opencycle-maps/&do=findComment&comment=4156 There are OSM maps which are much better suited for us geocachers than the standard material. An OSM card with a geocaching-optimized theme is worth its weight in gold!

    Who is using "Logs"?

    I wonder who is using the "Logs" feature to read the own logs? Sorry, but I find this function somehow useless... No cache name, no find function. Why should I read my own logs at all? That's the reason why I ask this question. Who is using this feature and why? Instead of my own logs, I would rather like to see a chronological list of all my logged caches (only cache name & GC code instead of the log text) with a daily summary (count of finds, DNF). Something similar to what Geosphere offers. I would often like to see which caches I logged on a given date. For me this feature would be much more useful.

    Friend's logs

    No, the Friends' Logs exists much longer. And yes: That's exactly what I mean.
  23. Attila_G

    Friend's logs

    I would put it in the menu at the top right corner (...).
  24. Attila_G

    Friend's logs

    Nic, wouldn't it be possible to add a direct link to the "friends logs" page on the geocaching website? ;-)
  25. Hello Nic I am always disappointed with the speed of loading the offline maps. That's why I made two comparison videos: Video 1 shows the offline map of Switzerland Video 2 shows the same online OSM map As you can see, loading the offline map takes much longer than loading the same online OSM map! My setup: - iPhone 6 / 64GB, iOS 11.2.5 connected to WLAN - Cachly 4.0.1 / Location/Maps: Switzerland Why is the offline map so slow? When you're out in the field, it feels like forever... The main reason for me to use the offline map is that small ways are better visible. -- Dave
