    Personal Notes and corrected coordinates

    See http://www.cach.ly/support/index.php?/topic/1070-how-to-use-coordinates-in-personal-cache-note/ for a similar discussion. An option until a more automated solution is considered, would be to go to https://project-gc.com/Profile/SolvedMysteries and add any filter you want such as filtering out found caches, and start updating the corrected coordinate data field. Another option, if you are a GSAK user, is to investigate if the corrected coords you have in the cache note are or can be put to another field in GSAK and then run one of several macros that would update the corrected coordinates on gc.com, which of course would then be reflected in Cachly. Now that GC has mostly resolved the corrected coordinate mash-up, folks should move to what should now be universally supported. The solutions used by GSAK, PGC and older apps are hacks implemented before things were a bit more consistent. GSAK, PGC and other apps are supporting the official method so folks just need to get that step done.

    Settings screen

    I started the Settings screen (off the More screen) and added each of the setting options. Not a lot of fancy content but includes the basic content. A couple of settings need input - specifically Text Templates and User Location Overlay Map as I wasn't sure of that setting. Anyone who wants can jump in and enhance the contents on this page. http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Settings

    Expedite cache logging

    I default my log type to Found which, if I'm correctly following your steps, would cut the clicks in half.

    How to use coordinates in Personal Cache Note?

    I can understand Cachly's desire to not assume/rely on non-standard fields to contain unstructured data that individuals want to be interpreted as structured data, especially when it's specific to a 3rd party site.

    How to use coordinates in Personal Cache Note?

    My approach... I use Cachly and PGC, and even sometimes GSAK though I leverage PGC much more now.I update the corrected coordinate on the Geocaching.com site when I solve a mystery and Cachly and the Geocaching site/app will honor the geocaching corrected coordinate. I also provide them in the personal cache note so PGC is aware. This will display in Cachly with a red triangle over the icon if there are corrected coordinates associated with the cache.
  6. You are correct it's a GC API driven behavior with cache data being returned based on original coords vs corrected coords. The corrected coordinate processing is handled by Cachly after the data is returned from GC, at least in Live view. With this info being the case, you might want to expand the caches retrieved in live view to cover what might be a cache just outside the current loaded set in case it has a corrected coord that moves it back into the target area. This of course adds more caches against your daily limit, though for me that's normally never a factor. I suspect the behavior is the same on the official app but since that constantly loads new data as you move, it might not be as noticeable. That's even if the official app uses their own API. Also the official app doesn't count against your daily limits like the partner apps.

    Change Offline icon to List

    The bookmark list need you to be connected (cellular or wifi) to display as the list is pulled from geocaching.com site. Bookmark lists aren't 1:1 with Cachly offline lists. Not that someone can't treat them as such but that isn't a standard way of using offline lists.

    Auto-Update Offline Lists

    Not sure this one would go over well or if you enabled it (on a list by list basis), when does it update? You have a cachly list of 5,000 caches and you walk into your house and you want to use 5,000 cache updates from your daily limit and update all the caches? After the update, when does it update again after you leave the house and come back - 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week?

    Auto-Synchronise Bookmarks Offline

    Not sure I understand this. A bookmark list is a container on geocaching.com that contains a list of caches. An offline list in cachly is a list of caches. You can use a geocaching.com bookmark list to create or add caches to a cachly offline list, but they are not one and the same so I don't know if an automatic sync makes sense. Maybe there's a feature to add a cache or caches from a cachly offline list to a geocaching.com bookmark to send caches from one type of list to another. I don't know if it makes sense to remove caches from an offline list because a cache in that list isnt in a bookmark as I often add caches to an offline list that might have inititally been added from a bookmark. Nor would I want a cache removed from a geocaching bookmark list because it was removed from a cachly offline list.

    Best workflow for 5,000 offline caches

    So updating to 30 requests per minute with 50 caches per request ... Min 1 - 1500 cache updatesMin 2 - PauseMin 3 - 3000Min 4 - PauseMin 5 - 4500Min 6 - PauseMin 7 - 6000 Min 8 - Pause Min 9 - 7500 Min 10 - Pause Min 11 - 9000 Min 12 - Pause Min 13 - 10500 <--- hit your daily limit Min 14 - PauseMin 15 - 12000

    Best workflow for 5,000 offline caches

    Yes - 20 requests in 60 seconds with each request covering 50 caches. That means 1000 caches per minute and then it needs to pause 1 minute before it can start the next batch. So with 10,000 caches it would be: Min 1 - 1000 Min 2 - Pause Min 3 - 2000 Min 4 - Pause Min 5 - 3000 Min 6 - Pause ... Min 17 - 9000 Min 18 - Pause Min 19 - 10000 Min 20 - Pause Min 21 - 11000 Assuming everything goes as planned.

    Random Pending Geocache Log

    What you see is likely a result of a previously logged cache that wasn't cleaned out in an earlier upload. The new version that you just downloaded surfaced some of these pending logs. If you validated it was logged correctly on geocaching.com , swipe it on your screen and delete it.

    Trackable logging field order

    I just logged a series of trackables via the app and the 2 fields that are always required are at the bottom of the Log Trackables screen - Log Type and Message. For me, it requires scrolling to select those fields. Please consider moving those fields up on the log trackables screen similar to the order of fields in the Log Cache screen - Date, Log Type, Message, followed by the rest of the fields.

    Multiple PQ overlays on offline map

    That's not a feature in Cachly at this time. You can create an offline list in Cachly merging multiple PQs and display that one offline list.

    Where does Cache Note come from?

    I use Cache Notes extensively as info before I hunt for a cache and if it's meaningful I update the Cage Note with a reminder to myself on the cache that was found should someone else ask me about it. Project-GC displays an indicator for a cache that has a Cache Note associated to it. A GPX export of a cache with a Cache Note from the geocaching.com cache page doesn't include the Cache Note which seems an oversight (aka bug) to me. I do wish GC would allow image upload(s) to be associated with a cache note and not a log, but that's a different desire I don't see GC getting worked on any time soon.

    GPX Export File has no Attributes

    The headers are different and Cachly shows 1.0 while GC shows 1.0.1 . I updated the Cachly reference to match GC's reference and GSAK imported without the alert dialog. In the generated GPX files the differences I outlined above are (which would be obvious if the forum didn't auto hyperlink): http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0 vs http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/1 and http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/cache.xsd vs http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/1/cache.xsd" both have Cachly outputting /1/0 while GC.com outputs /1/0/1

    GPX Export File has no Attributes

    Nic: If the file is indeed in the correct format, consider the following difference between a GC GPX file and a Cachly GPX file that causes the GSAK alert: Cachly: xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0 http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/cache.xsd" GC: xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0 http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/0/gpx.xsd http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/1 http://www.groundspeak.com/cache/1/0/1/cache.xsd" In a quick test, modifying a Cachly GPX export to match what GC outputs for the 2nd line in the GPX eliminates the alert on GSAK import.

    Who is using "Logs"?

    Not sure what you mean by Field Note. Cachly syncs Cache Note with Geocaching.com so an update anywhere will be displayed or you could sync offline. If you mean a Pending draft log sent to Geocaching.com, after it is accepted on being uploaded, it's no longer a pending draft stored within Cachly. I use cache notes all the time as a reminder of the cache in case some one asks me.

    Lost selected cache

    The behavior you experience is what happens if you explicitly close the application or the application is closed on your behalf by the operating system such as Apple needs to swap out an app for another where it needs the memory, etc. When that occurs, Cachly is starting from scratch just as if you newly launched it. There's a future enhancement for the application to save/restore it's state when that happens but no release date yet.

    Update after logging

    Chris - You can only do this if you are leveraging Drafts locally within Cachly and before the draft is uploaded to Geoaching.com . After it's uploaded, Geocaching doesn't provide a supported way for Cachly to update anything - either a draft or an actual log against a cache.

    Problem showing caches by date placed

    Looking at that cache, though it shows hidden on 3/28/2008, the logs show it was enabled on 7/23/2008. Regardless, if I set the start/end date to with March 2008 or July 2008, it doesn't show up. Nic will need to respond unless someone else can figure this one out. Cache referenced in 1st post: https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC1AFYG_2-ponds-to-ponder

    Only can see caches in Washington State

    Might you have a filter set? Launch Cachly and on the first screen you see, click the icon that looks like a gear on the right of where it says "Location, GC codes, coordinates". This will bring up the filter options. You can either click Reset in the top left or scroll down to where you can limit by location and see if US State shows "Washington" and click that, select the blank option at the top of the state list and click done.

    iPhone downloads transfer to iPad?

    There's no behind the scenes cloud sync between devices on the same account. If you want offline maps and offline lists on multiple devices you need to download on each device.

    Smiles above GC

    The logic behind the current solution is that full data is needed to display log info while lite data is used for the live map. I recall earlier discussions that it might be a nice enhancement to consider showing that info if available such as offline caches with log data downloaded.
