    Offline tile provider being shut down

    Cachly uses MapQuest tiles when downloading offline maps, but we just got the word that they will be shutting this service down on July 11. They are moving to a paid model, but we still do not know the specifics of pricing for the kind of download numbers that Cachly will require. What does this mean for users? We will work with MapQuest to see if their new paid model will work for Cachly. If not, we will move to another Open Street Map tile provider, but we would no longer be able to provide satellite maps, only Open Street Maps. We will submit an update before July 11 to address this issue. Will offline maps that I have downloaded continue to work? Yes, offline maps that have already been downloaded will continue to work since they are local on your device. Why not just download tiles from one of the other tile services that Cachly uses? All other tiles providers that Cachly uses do not allow bulk downloading of their map tiles, it is against their terms of service. If we tried, we would be blocked from using those services. Are there other options in the future? Yes, Cachly will be coming out with Open Street vector offline maps very soon. This will allow users to download full countries and states for offline use in a very small file size. This will become the new standard for offline maps in Cachly since we will control the data and not a tile map provider. Questions? If you have any questions reach on Twitter (@cachlyapp) or contact support through the app.

    Logging trackables

    Thanks, yeah I have personally replicated it while in the field, but never when at my computer, which is where I need to replicate it. I have a feeling it has to do with specific trackables that have specific attributes.

    Offline List

    As for not being able to create a new topic. Did you get the email from the forums and follow the link to activate your account? For Cachly groups, this is what Offline Lists are for. You can create them, manually add caches to them. But, like you said importing and adding PQ's to these groups would be a great feature. I will get that added to our feature list. To manually add add a cache to a list, go to the cache details, then tap the ... button and choose the option to add to an offline list.

    Suport for GCA caches

    Yes, Louise and I worked for a long time getting GCA imports working. But there is still more work to do. I just got your crash logs. Could you email me the files so that I can take a look?

    Calibrate Compass Often

    iOS will request that the compass be recalibrate when it detects a change in magnetic field around the iPhone. Were you using your iPhone inside of your car?

    Importing from email

    Ordnance Survey maps are coming in Cachly 1.1.4. You can save an Offline List of almost anything, including caches on the Caches screen. Just tap the ... button and choose "Save Offline Lists and Maps" which will let you save the caches to an offline list.

    Don't get cache description even after 24 hrs waiting

    Glad you got it working! Yes, sadly we are required to show the alert in that way and each time a Regular user downloads the full cache. These are requirements for geocaching.com third-party apps, and are one of the terms that we agree to.

    Offline List

    Great ideas! I will get these added to our features list. Thanks for using Cachly!

    Don't get cache description even after 24 hrs waiting

    Some caches don't container descriptions. Were you looking at a cache that didn't have one? Once you tap the Basic version button, and hit ok, it will load that cache and then allow you to tap the Description row on that screen to show the cache description. Limited to returning Traditional caches is another geocaching.com limitation, not Cachly's. It means that as a Basic member you can only load Traditional caches. Multi's, Mystery, etc won't show up unless you know the GC code, or are a Premium member. Sorry about these restrictions, we are just having to follow the rules imposed by geocaching.com.

    Don't get cache description even after 24 hrs waiting

    Have you tried tapping the "Basic Version Loaded" button to load the full cache? Is there an error or warning that is shown? Yes, Cachly is still useful to basic members. But, by the very nature of how geocaching.com does their Premium memberships you will get much much more out of Cachly (and all other Geocaching apps and geocaching.com) if you are a Premium member.

    Logging trackables

    Thanks! This is a know bug that has been in Cachly for a while now, but so far I have been having a very very hard time replicating it. I can log trackable every which way but I cannot replicate it. Are you able to outline the exact steps that you took to make this happen? Thanks!

    Saving offline maps

    This looks to be a product of the number of caches that you are trying to download maps for. When downloading just around cache radius for 1000 caches that is going to be more tiles than not downloading around caches. If you did start the download duplicate tiles would NOT be downloaded. Vector offline maps are coming, so stayed tuned for this.

    Offline maps in the UK

    Thanks!

    Longitude changed from W to E

    Glad to hear it. Fixed in the beta version, correct?

    Offline maps in the UK

    Currently MapQuest maps are the only offline map provider that we can use as their licensing allows for bulk downloads. All other map providers do not, so at this time we cannot provide Open Street or Cycle as download options. However, OSM vector maps will be coming to Cachly in the near future which will allow you to download entire countries and states. Will look more into Ordnance Survey and get back to you. Thanks!

    Thank you!!

    Done. It will be out in our 1.1.4 version of Cachly.

    Use Here Maps for navigation to cache

    Just added that to our feature list. Should be quick and easy to get that added!

    User Created Waypoints

    Yeah, it does sound like something to do with the GPX that Cachly isn't picking up. Could you send me the GPX file? Just email support at cach.ly. Thanks!
