    Question about Locking Map Rotation

    The lock icon simply locks manual map rotation. The map will rotate automatically when in the heading follow mode, but you won't be able to rotate it manually until it is unlocked. Does that clear things up? Can you explain this more? What feature is missing?

    Several Issues with Using App Searching and Navigating

    To search using "hidden by", tap the gear icon which is inside of the search bar. This will show you all of the search options. If you had already found this and it still isn't working, what isn't working? Was there an error?

    Is there a basic features guide?

    Thanks Laura, we will continue to work on it and hopefully have it out very soon.

    Pending Logs

    Currently there isn't a way to do this, but it is on our list for a future version. Will bump up the priority. Thanks!

    Consolidating Offline lists

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think this would be a great feature, and I will get it added to our feature list. Thanks!

    Large PQ causes Cachly to hang then crash

    Looks like cache radius on a large number of caches cause an issue. Looking into it.

    Slow loading of OpenCycle Map

    Yes, it does seem to load slow, which is strange. I will look into what is going on. Also, will look into caching tiles like you mentioned. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Found and not found yet Toggle in maps

    You are in luck. All of these features are already available. What you are looking for is Search Options. These can be accessed by tapping the gear icon that is inside of the search bar. That will give you a plethora of search options including hide my finds and choosing what cache type to search for.

    Is there a basic features guide?

    This is currently in the works. Many of the features are intuitive, but because there are so many features we want to provide a help manual as well for that. When ready, it will be available under the More tab.

    Cachly has a very small development team. So at this point, in order to support our current users and push forward in development we need to focus on iOS. Trying to focus on both platforms at this point would stifle innovation on our part. Sorry about that, I hope we can support Android in the future!

    Cache Radius

    Glad you are enjoying using it! To turn this feature on, go to the More tab, then to Settings and turn on the "Cache Radius" option.

    Map scale

    There currently isn't a way to show map scale, but it is on the feature list. Hope to get it added soon.

    map orientation

    No problem. When you are on a map view, tap the current location button on the bottom right of the map. It looks like an arrow and has a white background. Tapping that again will take you through the different follow modes, the last being "follow with heading". Let me know if this works for you.

    Large PQ causes Cachly to hang then crash

    Could you email me the .gpx file for this PQ? You mentioned the cache radius feature is enabled, and I have a feeling you are running out of memory. Basically, you are loading 1000 map annotations (caches) onto the map, as well as drawing an overlay (circle radius) around many of those caches. That is quite a lot of memory for iOS and it likely maxes out and the app gets killed. But, I can test it more when I see the file.

    Longitude changed from W to E

    Thanks. I will reopen that issue and do some more digging.

    Formatting of cache description

    Glad to hear it. Thanks for reporting!

    Thanks Keith for reporting this, and thanks for the GC code. I will look into getting this fixed.

    Save Photos

    When opening an offline list while still online, it won't make any requests to the server, it will load those caches locally. However, it will try to load maps while you are still online. Offline map downloading should work, just make sure to download the adequate zoom level so you will have enough resolution when offline. We are working on a simplified offline map downloader were you won't have to worry about zoom levels or map type.

    Friends show up on web site but not on iPhone app

    Sorry for the confusion. Are you meaning in these support forums when you said Cachly web account? If so, the support forums are not linked to the Cachly app. The friends within Cachly are only accessible within the app. Let me know if I didn't clarify or if you have any other questions!

    DNF map icon

    This is something that we are looking into doing, the major issue here is that the Groundspeak/geocaching.com API that Cachly users does not provide DNF data. So we will have to figure out a way to store this data on our own server, and it wouldn't be retroactive.

    Friends show up on web site but not on iPhone app

    Geocaching.com friends and Cachly friends are different. Unfortunately the API that Groundspeak/geocaching.com provides doesn't give us the ability to show the friends that you have on geocaching.com. So, instead you can save Cachly friends within the app.

    Can't access Chat

    Hi GeoKeys57. Chat isn't something that was supported, so I removed that tab. Sorry about the confusion!

    Feedback and query on map orientation

    Ah, OpenCycle Map. That one I have noticed is slow to load and it seems it is that way on Wifi too. I think that the map provider just has a slow server. I will be emailing Julie back in a few about her questions. Strange about the freezing. I will be looking into that issue. Could you email our support email address so that I can ask a few more questions? Thanks!

    Feedback and query on map orientation

    What map provider were you using? Map tiles will be downloading directly from their providers, so I am not sure what the slowdown would be. Have not seen this issue myself. Absolutely. In an upcoming version this screen will be completely changed basically making it a one tap download that users won't have to think about. It will also download all zoom levels as we are changing the algorithm to only download tiles in a radius around caches. This feature can be turned on by tapping the current location button to toggle its "modes". There is No Follow, Follow and Follow with Heading. Both these have been requested by other users as well and are something we are working on. Showing that a cache has been found, but not yet submitted the log wouldn't be hard. The DNF feature is something a bit harder since Groundspeak doesn't support this in their API. So we will need to use our own server to handle the DNF's for all users. Great idea about the zooming. Will get this added to our feature list. Absolutely. Working on some additional ways to show accuracy throughout the app. Should be included in our next release. Thanks for using Cachly! I highly value user feedback, so I really appreciate all of your comments and questions. My goal is to make the best Geocaching app out there, and this can't be done without users help!

    Mapsforge Vector Maps

    Different offline maps options is something that we are actively working on, and vector maps is for sure something being worked on. I will take a deeper look into this solution and let you know what I think. Thanks!
