    Looking4Cache - Out of Business

    Thank you. I will do my best to support L4C users that are interesting in moving to Cachly.
  2. Yes, the character limit is 4000 characters. It has been on my list for quite a while, and I hope to get this added in 7.0.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Search geocaches by name (not working?)

    Ah, thank you. That field isn't used in that way anymore, but it looks like there is an issue that puts that placeholder text there. Will fix.

    Search geocaches by name (not working?)

    What version are you using? I am looking at the German location strings, and I am not seeing that.

    You need to tap the current location button on the bottom right to zoom Cachly back to your location.

    Better workflow

    Are you wanting this for something like a power trail? In general use, a few extra taps will take very minimal time, but I can see how it would cause issues for a power trail.

    OBJ in Log When Using Talk to Text

    There is an invisible character getting added, which looks like a space. Make sure to do some testing to see if it is a part of your text template.

    Cachly on Apple CarPlay

    I have submitted it a couple of times, but I will keep trying.

    Cachly on Apple CarPlay

    No. We need approval from Apple and we have not received this.

    Bad maps layers

    No, this isn't a bug, and is the way our Premium Offline Maps are intended to work. Of course we appreciate everyone's opinion.

    Import GPX file

    Yes, this appears to be the root of the problem. I will see if there is anything I can do on my end.

    Don't understand how the pointer works

    No, as the pointer is specifically a heading indicator, which GPS course cannot do. Think about if you are standing close to a geocache, rotating your body looking for the cache, the compass will provide correction direction for the pointer in relation the tip of your phone, so when looking at the map you know exactly which way you are facing. GPS course cannot do this unless the user walks for a distance.

    Bad maps layers

    I am seeing Google Maps and Apple Maps doing the same thing. Can you explain what issues this causes with your usage and as a geocacher? I do not see this as a bug at all.

    Bad maps layers

    This is the deceleration of the multi-touch gesture. This is normal for maps and Google and Apple maps both do this when you do a hard pinch or push. Can you let me know what sort if problems this is causing?

    Quick display waypoints

    In a future version you will be able to see all waypoints on the map, so this should help.

    Bad maps layers

    Premium Offline Maps are sourced from OSM data, but are data and styles are picked carefully for our specific Premium Maps. They are not meant to copy OSM styles, as this was not the goal. The goal was to make the best offline map experience for my users.

    Bad maps layers

    In your video, can you explain the issue and how this is affecting you? I am not seeing the issue. In your screenshot, it looks like you have a lot of map details turned off. Long press the map layers button and choose the options you want to see: As for colors, this is just personal preference. I have spent years now perfecting how the Premium Offline maps are displayed, so I am very proud of them.

    Change default provider for navigate

    You are tapping the Google Street View button, which will open the map center on Google Street View. If you would like to navigate to a cache, tap the ... button on the top right and you will see the various routing providers there:

    Overlay by photomap

    In Cachly, you can long press on the map layers button to quickly access previously used maps. Using this method you can quickly switch back and forth between offline and satellite.

    Bad maps layers

    Can you show me an example of what you mean? Looking at your screenshots, I think everything looks pretty good in our Premium maps. Can you point out some things that you feel are missing from the Cachly maps? Also, please remember that as with many other iOS map types, map objects will appear as you zoom in. Meaning you will see a more detailed map as you zoom in. Cachly also uses OSM for our map source, but I wouldn't ever copy or use another apps maps.

    Change default provider for navigate

    Hi, I am not sure what you mean, can you explain? Cachly provides navigating using many different apps, and they will show up in the list if those apps are installed.

    Don't understand how the pointer works

    This is not something that I would use the GPS "course" data for. That is only for when you are moving that it will show the correct direction of movement. The heading indicator is not this. It requires the compass because you can stand stationary in one location and rotate and the course indicator will change using the compass to point you in the direction of the cache based on the top of your device. This is not something that GPS course direction can do, as it doesn't update when a user rotates a compass. I think we should just move on from this topic, unless you have another specific question, as I feel this is getting a bit heated. Thanks.

    Don't understand how the pointer works

    Yes, there is compass hardware inside of the iPhone, which is what controls the compass in Cachly on the navigate to cache screen, as well as the red heading indicator. If you test the iOS compass app, please see if it performs correctly so we can use it as a comparison.
