    I tried that and it didn’t change.

    In your specific case, I am not sure. Offline maps are the only thing that would take up that amount of space. The last resport is to delete Cachly and install again, making sure to backup your offline lists.

    I have Cachly installed on my IOS device and it currently takes up 10GB of space. Is there a way to decrease that? I don't have any offline maps added.

    What does your Usage screen show? Cachly should never take up that much space without offline maps. Maps are the #1 source of large data sizes in Cachly.

    So I'm really confused why this is making problems right now.

    It is a server side bug. So a change that Geocaching HQ made to their API (not sure what) is now triggering the 500 error when full cache data and 100 caches are requested.


  4. Do you have the "Full Cache Data" option turned on? If so, try turning that off and see if that helps.

    If it DID fix the issue, can you let me know what you have for the number of caches to load setting? Is it 100?

    I have the same problem for several days but don't wanted to delete and reinstall Cachly yet. The geocaching app is working without problems. Is there anything that I can do to solve the problem without deleting cachly?

    Also, if you turn of live filters, does that solve the issue? If it does, Please make sure to see my above comment about sending debug data, it would really help.

    Hmm, have you tried turning off all filters to see if that helped? Also, can you try the searcha again, then use the option in Cachly to contact support and send us an email. Then make sure to include debug data so we can see the request that is being made.

    Wouldn't it be straightforward to apply such a filter locally after the results are returned by the API (which would give the user the same effect)?

    Simple answer is yes, but it would cause some irregularies with how many caches are returned. Would have to educate the user before adding a filter like this.

    When doing a live search, it would be handy if there was an option to exclude past events

    Thanks for the suggestion. The geocaching.com API doesn't currently support this, so we aren't able to add this feature currently.

    I resolved the problem by deleting the Cachly app and reinstalling. I saved all my offline lists as gpx files prior to removing the app because they were deleted along with the app. After reinstalling, everything worked fine and I reimported the gpx files back in to restore my offline lists. 

    Hmm, that is really strange. You should never have to delete Cachly. A 500 error comes from the geocaching.com API.

    Is there a way or has a way been considered to log caches in bulk?  I would like to see the ability to log all caches in a list with an identical log.  For example, after completing a Geoart I can just push through a cut and paste log rather than doing each cache manually.

    There is hesitation to do this. While some power users would find it useful, it could be abused and lead to really poor logs and inflating find counts. So, for now it isn't something we have planned.

    You can setup log defaults and text templates which would allow you to log quickly and save those to pending logs, then you can upload them in bulk.

    I am not sure, if you got my point. The reference point for "distance" filter is the current location. I would need to set it to a fixed coordinate (e.g. my home location as stored on geocaching.com), so the reference point does not move, when my current location changes.

    Sorry for misunderstanding.

    No, I don't think there will be an option to manually set the "distance from" for live search filters. This tool is meant to do quick searching from the current map center, not your current location. You can always move the map to another location and load caches from there.
