    I will tune in ....

    I am sure that my Apple watch 2 / iPhone 7 will love Cachly.


    It all depends on what advantages it can give us for caching. With the series 1 watch, it was little more than a novelty to build a watch app, as it would have just been better for users to pull out their phone to cache. 

    If the series 2 provides a better caching experience than series 1, then I will for sure develop it. But, if it doesn't, I would rather spend the time to build better features into the iOS app than make a watch app that doesn't really help anyone.

  2. I bought one of the new Series 2 watches as well, so I for sure will be seeing how we can integrate it with Cachly.

    I hope it will be more than a novelty like the Series 1 one, and I did't see any real value in developing for that one.

    Stay tuned!

  3. When you say that it "errored out", what do you mean? In the current 1.1.7 version of Cachly there is a memory issue that prevents our importer from importing large GPX files. So, it depends on what iPhone you have since they have different memory sizes (RAM not disk space).

    In 2.0 we have tested importing over 10k caches with success, but we are working on making that limit even higher.

    As for the 2.0 release date, I can't say yet. We are still working hard to complete it. :)

    In the syncing world, 'the truth' means the master copy of the data.  So for caching that's the GS database — not your phone or any other software you run.

    I don't understand how you could hold the truth on caches — the GS database is constantly changing from around the world.

    This is why, having both worlds, offline then the ability to update that, is what we are shooting for.

    A philosophical usage question.  Do you ever see Cachly being able to support the offline version of the truth, it will it always be skewed towards the online API world?

    Thanks for using Cachly!

    Have you looked at the option of importing your GPX into Cachly? Or were you meaning something else?

    There are many features and enhancements in our upcoming 2.0 version that will likely help with this.

    Cachly 1.1.7 (1)

    iOS 9.3.5

    iPhone 5s

    Here is what you need to do: 

    • Go to the Queries tab and download both Pocket Queries
    • View the first PQ
    • Tap the ... button and choose "Save Offline List and Maps".
    • Save all caches to a new list.
    • Go to the second PQ and do the same thing. Tap the ... button and chose to download the caches into that same list.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Hi Nic,

    discovering TBs works neighter. Not in pending and also not from direct logging.

    Logging a note seems to work from direct, but not from Pending Logs.

    TBs I've used for testing are TB5XYMR and TB6136G.

    Both TBs are mine. If you need the traching code, leave a PM.

    Could you use the Contact Support option in Cachly so we could get you to test the beta version? I want to see if it solves your issue.

    Hi Nic,

    Not clear to me.

    I have two PQ's covering the same geographic region, date driven selections which I want to import into Cachly.

    The process for creating the list is a little vague.  I.e. I assign a name and any options seem to be unselectable after that.  So I selected maps & images, then gave it a name.

    It ran for quite some time, but I see no list.

    So in a nutshell:

    • two Groundspeak PQ's
    • I want to load both into an offline list
    • then use the list within Cachely

    What version of Cachly are you using?

    Cachly friends seem pretty limited… you can't view their recent finds, etc.?

    Here is what the User view looks like in 2.0:

    You will be able to do MUCH more than in the current 1.1.7 including viewing Finds, Hides, Trackables, Souvenirs, Bookmarks, Gallery and seeing what cache types their hides and finds were.

    Sometimes when I'm working a hard cache, I track any particularly helpful log entries into iOS Notes.  Would be useful if I could tap & hold on a log entry to copy it.

    Because of how text is rendered this isn't possible to press and hold to highlight text. But you can tap the ... button to copy the log text.

    Pity. I like to do a short log in the appendix then drop into GSAK, where I fresh out the log and then update to geocaching.com. The reason Geosphere is still my primary app and cachly is just the experimental standby.  

    So you were wanting to have the option to send individual logs or all pending logs?

    I just tested that and I "Visited All" and then swiped and deleted. As I did this I noticed that the first trackable in my list started repeating under the Available heading. It seems like some kind of screen refresh issue might be going on. If I scrolled the list then it mostly corrected itself and if I exited from that screen then the list was correct.

    This is just a UI bug as you noted, and has been fixed in 2.0. Thanks for reporting it!

    That reminds me, it would also be nice to be able to have the coordinates available in one line somewhere in the waypoint so they can be copied and pasted into a log. That would be helpful in various scenarios like when you find that a coordinate is way off and you want to state an updated coordinate in your log. Similar to how you can copy the coordinate from the Additional Information screen.

    Great idea. Will get that added!

    I used the Visit All function over the weekend and wanted to then not include 3 of them. I saved the log to send later vs sending at that time. I didn't see a way to uncheck the caches I didn't want to visit and ended up fixing it from the geocaching website after I uploaded my logs. Is is possible to deselect a trackable once the option to visit has been selected?

    Yes, if you use the Visit All option you can just swipe the one you want to remove and tap Delete. That will remove it from the list.
