    Unless someone can break the code, I'm deciding I'm unable to cache using a phone, at least with Cachley.  I've been caching for 16 years and I don't understand how anyone uses a cell phone to cache. 

    This is very strange. I cannot replicate this issue, and we have never had any other users report this, it always works.

    What phone are you using? Do other apps have issues with location services?

    I loaded 'Australia', and the entire country shows errors with the latest release on the server being from 01/12/2020. Though, specifically I am interested in the 'Queensland' state.

    Our Premium Offline maps of Australia have been regenerated and should be working correctly now. Please let me know if you see any additional issues.

So it would be also possible to just load that tinier state map. However, I just noticed that all Australian state maps are there apart from Queensland! Very odd.

    There were issues with generating the Australia maps recently and I restarted the generation process yesterday. Those maps should be done in a few days and I will post back where when it is complete. Sorry about the inconvenience.

    I have just reinstalled the app, but that didn't help either.

    This is never a good idea as you will loose all data.

    I do have a fix for the initial bug. I will be submitting it to Apple today for approval.

    Before and after the reinstall I have tried to update the Premium Offline maps, which seem to download fine, but show total nonsense once installed.

    What specific map are you loading?

    I have created a new PQ with 4 caches located in a 500km radius and which consists of in total about 40 images. 

    Downloaded it via mobile data, but still the same, some caches have all images grayed out, some are able to present about 10 to 15% of images.

    Can you provide a few of the GC codes that aren't loading images? I want to create a PQ that includes those.

    Is it possible to have the topo map from geocaching.com as an opportunity for the maps in cachly??

    No, that is a custom map that geocaching.com has created. It is also sourced from openstreetmaps like our Premium Offline maps are.

    Have you used our Premium Offline maps? They have beautiful hillshades and contours as well as very detailed data.

    I would like a sattelite and a hybrid for the offline maps.

    This is something that I would love to provide as a paid option in the future, as licensing satellite imagery is quite expensive.

    I just realized - c:geo on Android uses this feature too even though it's not an official app. How could they implement it if it's not available for partner apps?

    c:geo hacks the geocaching.com and uses screen scraping. They basically illegally use the methods from the website and make them work in their app. Which, HQ does not allow.

    I know about that. But it would still be nice to be able to have as much functions as possible in one great working and great looking Cachly app, without the need of downloading other apps.

    I worked on the new HQ Wherigo app, so hopefully it is a good compromise. Integrating a Wherigo player into Cachly isn't something that is planned.

    There are many wherigos in my country (Czechia) and people are still creating new ones. With the official Wherigo app missing from the App Store right now I don't have any chance of playing these. 
    I think playing wherigos in Cachly would be much better experience :)

    HQ announced that an updated player for iOS will be released fairly soon. So stayed tuned for that.

  10. The official app has the benefit of using an API that we cannot. It can load 500 caches at a time for the area around the map. This isn't a complaint, but just a fact. Because we cannot do this (no API like this for partner apps) and because of the API limits that users have on how many caches they can load per day and for each request, it would be a poor user experience. So it isn't something that we have planned right now.

    A nice added feature would be to see at a glance the number of 'will attends' on an event.  Would be much easier to know how many people were planning on attending. 

    This is a request that I have put in for HQ to add to the API, so it won't be possible to add to Cachly if/when this happens.

    I would also love to be able to filter the logs by "Announcements". These always seem to get lost, especially on mega events and it would be handy to be able to see all of them in a filtered view just like 'my logs' and 'friends logs'.

    Great idea! Will get this added hopefully in 6.2. :)
