    I was out caching today and using Cachly as I'm trying to get used to it. Unfortunately, I thought I had the most recent version so I still wasn't able to upload pending field notes in bulk. I've now installed the most recent version. Has this issue been addressed yet?

    One of the bugs that exists in the previous version (and may still be there in the current version) is when field notes are accumulated and not logged at the time of creation, a problem arises in the Find Count if one uses the *Find Count* variable as part of the field note text. As an example, if you start the day with 100 finds in your profile and you find three caches during the day and you have accumulated three field notes for those finds, when you upload the logs (one by one) as field notes, each one of them has Find number 103 in its text. Looks like a bug to me. But any input would be welcome.

    Bulk uploading will come in our 2.0 version.

    For the find count keyword, it is a tricky thing to keep working since there are many ways that logs can get created: Create log, save Pending Log to device, submit field note to geocaching.com. Field notes on geocaching.com could then be deleted later, further throwing off the number.

    So, we are working on the issue any trying to get it working correctly.

    Just as an FYI .... I'm not sure how they do it, but both GSAK and Geosphere identify caches with corrected coordinates when pocket queries are downloaded. In addition, both the original and the corrected coordinates become part of the cache's data.

     

    We will be fixing Cachly to work this way in 2.0. :)


  3. Doing some more testing and looking into the GPX files that PQ create, I can confirm that geocaching.com does not include any indication that the caches have corrected coordinates. 

    However, in 2.0 we will be rebuilding the way we receive PQ data and it will solve this issue.

    I guess that I'm dull.  When I click add to bookmark, I only get my bookmarks as options.  There isn't an option to add to an ignore list.  

    Login to geocaching.com and you first have to add a cache to "Ignore". Once you do that, it will create an Ignore List for you. Then you can use Cachly to add caches to that list.

    Agreed; I too would like to see a summary of the features.

    Just downloaded the app for iPhone this morning - and look forward to trying it out in the not too distant future... 

    You can see some of our major features listed on www.cach.ly, and also by viewing our Help within the app. Most features are very intuitive in Cachly, so just start exploring. I think you will like what you find!

    I would love you to go one step further - make a PowerPoint demonstration to be used by those of us who would like to have events where we show what Cachly can do.

    That sounds like a great idea, I would love to have the geocaching community help spread the word in this way!

    I do have a presentation from Geowoodstock that I did that could be easily turned into something you could use. Would you be interested in this?

    I don't think a new search option is needed to hide one errant archived event since no other archived caches, of any type, show up.  It's got to be an anomaly with this particular cache.  

    I don't think it is an anomaly after looking into it. If you search for just events in your area it will come up with other archived events. There are also a few archived caches you will see here and there...

    The event that won't die is:  GC6JKJ9

    Using Cachly 1.1.7 (1) on a 5s running iOS 9.3.4

    Ah ok, I didn't see you mention before that this was an archived cache. Currently Cachly doesn't hide these types of caches. I will add a new search option to hide these in 2.0. Thanks for helping with this!

    Just bought an iPhone and thinking about getting cachly. The most important for me in a cache app are the maps. Which offline maps are supported and can you also navigate to a cach using a offline map?

    Cachly provides the following map layers:

    • Apple Maps
    • Google Maps
    • Ordnance Survey (UK)
    • Open Street Map
    • Open Cycle Map
    • Thunder Forest Landscape
    • Thunder Forest Outdoors
    • ARC GIS Satellite
    • ARC GIS Topo

    Cachly had offline map tile downloads available. But in our upcoming 2.0 version we will be releasing Open Street offline vector maps, which will allow you to download entire states and countries offline in very small file sizes. (WA State is only 58 MB)

    Yes, you can navigate to a cache using offline maps.


  10. When posting a support question about Cachly please help us by providing the following:

    • Cachly version number
    • iOS version
    • Device that you are using
    • Screen that issue is happening on and if you can replicate it
    • If you are a Regular or Premium user of geocaching.com
    • GC code if your question is about a specific cache

    This is weird.  An archived event (from June) shows up in Cachly and won't go away.  It's on my phone and my iPad, so I don't think it's localized to one device.  I can put it on an ignore list for a workaround, but it shouldn't be there.  I have no lists or PQ's that contain the event, so I'm perplexed.  

    I have seen this happen before, and I am convinced it is a geocaching.com API issue.
