  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the prompt reply and will look forward to the vector maps.

    Be interested to see where you get with Ordnance Survey but I will say one thing, you get that sorted and I guarantee you WILL crack the UK market!!

    Regards, Stucuk.


    :)  Thanks!

  5. 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!

  6. I was going to post a Feature Request, but realised this topic was exactly what I was looking for.  I'm continuing to put Cachly through its paces, and am still very impressed.


    I too usually want the 'heading follow' mode, and it is a little irritating to have to repeatedly set this mode.  It's a pity that you can't set a preferred mode, or even default to 'heading follow'.  


    I'm also having some problems with pinching. If done carefully, then fine.  However, if the map is moved just a fraction, then the little pointer reverts to white arrow at 1 o'clock (or 1:30 :) ). So quickly try and set back - then my finger keeps missing the arrow and selecting 'more' by mistake.  Grrr.


    A thought regarding the iPad Air.  If wifi-only, then no gps receiver.  Could that be a factor?


    I am looking deeper into the issue to see if it can be fixed. Thanks for letting me know!

  7. I have downloaded the app and it asks for login and password but does not allow me to set up password and login. Is there another app tied to this app. I have never done cashe before and have grandsons coming this summer. Janette@ronan.net


    Yes, you will need to create a user account on geocaching.com, they are the service and website that the entire game of Geocaching is tied to. Once you have created an account you can use Cachly to login. Hope that helps!

  8. Hi there. I have just downloaded the latest update of the app. Firstly thank you for adding Maps.me support, but I have also experienced problem with the app. After pressing More button app always crashes. :( Could you please fix that? Thanks!


    We never experienced this in testing and I can't replicate it. If you delete Cachly and reinstall, does that fix the issue?

  9. I did indeed update to version 1.1 as soon as it became available. I find that pinching in/out a minute amount does not knock the map out of heading follow mode, however if I pinch in/out rapidly and around 40% of the screen diameter resets the setting.


    Strange. I was just trying to replicate this and I can't. Can you replicate this reliably?

  10. Each time I pinch zoom in/out and/or change to a new cache, I have to go through this process to re-enable the "heading follow" mode. I did not see an option in settings to set the default navigation mode, which is the "missing" feature I was referring to. To illustrate, I have attached a labeled screen shot for reference.


    The issue where it gets reset when pinching in/out was fixed in 1.1. Have you upgraded to that version?


    As for setting a mode as a default, there isn't currently a way to do this. But, just a though that I could build it so that if you long press on a mode it would "lock" that mode. what do you think?
