    I guess my q is:  have I missed something?  When would you normally use them?

    This feature was added for users who are interested in hiding caches, and saving locations for general reference. Those users that use Cachly to hide caches find it very helpful.

    1. It seems to happen regardless of zoom level, at least for me. Zooming up or down seems to make no difference. Meanwhile, I'll just wait for v2's release.

    Very strange. This shouldn't happen.

    2. Now I can't duplicate it either but it happened at least a dozen times yesterday. I'm just testing at home now. I'll try to duplicate in the field over the next few days.

    2. Satellite:  yeah, seemed unlikely given licensing.  But on the Caches tab, tap the map icon, and on the Map Types screen under 'Offline Maps' is Standard and Satellite?

    That is because MapQuest used to provide free Satellite tiles which were integrated into Cachly. But they shut down this service this summer. So, this option just allows those users who still have the MapQuest Satellite tiles on their devices to still use them.

    5. do you use the OS even for OSM?  I'm used to running MotionX-GPS which does it internally (and has settings for caching and downloading).

    Yes. All map tiles are rendered onto the standard MKMapView in iOS.

    which provider is used for offline maps?  OSM?

    Yes, OSM.

    how does Cachly decide to download the Standard or Satellite maps?

    OSM are Standard Maps only. There are no satellite maps offered for offline use.

    what zoom levels are downloaded?

    Up to level 17. Although sometimes our tile provider doesn't have level 17 available, and will only build those tiles when requested. Which, does not help users. This is why we are moving to OSM offline vector maps in 2.0.

    is there a way to view/delete the batches of map downloads?

    In Settings you can clear the tile cache, but it will delete all tiles.

    in normal operation, how much caching does Cachly do of tiles when online?  i.e. what's the chance of it remembering tiles I've looked at if I lose reception, or saving cellular data.

    Cachly does not do any tile caching other than what iOS naturally does, which we do not know the threshold of.
