    Pop up info

    Thanks Chris. The map callout has been redesigned and we are going to be implementing this design very soon. It will include distance, as well as favorites, trackables, etc. For the navigate map, I think this would make a nice Setting that could be turned on and off. Will add it to our feature list!

    Cache Published Search Option

    This is something that has been fixed in Cachly 1.1.6, which will be out this week. Stay tuned!

    Let me know if you have any additional questions!

    Newbee questions

    1. Unfortunately the geocaching API only allows us to add caches to a Bookmark list, but not to delete them. I hope they will add this sometime in the future so that third-party apps like Cachly can use it! 2. This isn't currently possible. Do you mean search for only caches with personal notes? 3. Not sure what you mean. Can you explain this? 4. Just go to the Log this Cache screen and then turn the "Send Log Now" option off. This will allow you to save that log as a pending log. Hope this helps!
  5. Thanks for reporting these. I have added these both to our bug tracker and will get them fixed. Thanks!

    Issue with dates on logs/TB

    It is weird that TB don't have the issue. I have talked with the geocaching.com developers quite a few times about this issue, but they say there isn't a fix for it.

    Issue with dates on logs/TB

    What time zone are you in? geocaching.com converts all dates to Pacific Time, and this is not something that we can change or have control over.

    Calibrate Compass Often

    This is something we have fixed in the upcoming version of Cachly. You won't get the calibration screen anymore.

    Login request times out everytime

    Yes, I just checked their status.geocaching.com page and it does show about a 2 hour outage which was likely the cause of your issues. Can you let me know what other "hiccups" you were having so that I can address those? Thanks!

    Hidden logging when attaching TB logs

    Would it be at all possible for me to test one of two of your coins, but using the geocaching.com staging server? This is the test server we use, and nothing from it goes Live, even if I logged some visits to your tracakable. If you are interested, please contact me through the support option in the app. Thank you!

    Hidden logging when attaching TB logs

    I have been trying to reproduce this issue for a long time, and so far it has been very hard. Could you let me know if you can reproduce it every time? Is there anything particular about the trackables such as having images, or anything else? Thanks guys!

    User Created Waypoints

    Could you send me the GPX file so I could take a look? Email support at cach.ly. Thanks!

    Logging trackables

    Yes, when you are logging a cache and adding trackables, just tap the ... button on the to right of the adding trackables section, and you will be able to change the log type for all of them.

    Adding signature automatically to found log.

    Sure, this feature is part of Cachly. Go to the More tab, then to Settings. There you will see some different log defaults, one of which is "Log Text". This is the default log text that will get added. Hope this helps!

    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!
