    Apple Watch & GPS Drift

    I would say it could be what Nic noted which also can occur just on the phone itself. I also have read reports of users who updated to iOS 14 seeing unexpected GPS behavior on their watches - https://www.macrumors.com/2020/09/30/apple-watch-iphone-battery-drain-gps/

    Caches Not Displayed at corrected coordinates

    I see what is occurring in your screen shots but I can't replicate with the same cache and corrected coords. If I load GC1NVKT from an offline list and look at the Waypoints, I see what you posted above. Still, Cachly displays it properly on the map when it loads it from the offline list. Not sure what @Nic Hubbard might think or need to further troubleshoot. Sorry I couldn't figure out the trigger.

    Caches Not Displayed at corrected coordinates

    I went and solved the puzzle for GC1NVKT and updated the corrected coordinates for it on the geocaching site. I opened the cache in live view in Cachly and it displayed properly. I saved the cache to an offline list and it displays where I'd expect. if you open that cache in the offline list, do the coords on the cache detail screen look like your corrected coords? if you pull down the cache detail screen to refresh the cache, do the coords change after being refreshed?

    Caches Not Displayed at corrected coordinates

    If you want to share with me via private message the corrected coords for one of those, I can see what it shows for me. Nic (Cachly developer) might need something from you to try and replicate/troubleshoot as it's specific to the corrected coordinate. What does geocaching.com map show when you view that cache with the corrected coordinate? Does it show exactly where it should?

    Full offline-map of Germany not selectable

    If you tap on the More icon at the bottom right of the main Cachly screen and then select Usage on the next screen, it will show how much space is being used by downloaded maps. Does it show at least 3.1GB which would be the minimum needed for the full Germany download?

    Full offline-map of Germany not selectable

    The full Germany map is 3.1GB. Did you download that full one? If you wanted all of Germany, that would be the only one you needed to download. The other maps are a subset of the entire country useful if someone might just be in 1 specific region. It could be there was an issue downloading as it is very large. Do you recall seeing that it was successfully downloaded?

    Full offline-map of Germany not selectable

    In map view, if you single tap on the map layer icon (looks like 3 pieces of stacked paper) toward the bottom right, it should bring up the Map Types screen like I attached here. I have the US Northeast and Florida premium offline maps downloaded. Does your screen show the Germany map? if so, does it have the green check mark to indicate it is selected? If not, tap it to select and then tap Done in the top right of the screen and it should be the active map.

    Needs Maintenance

    I seem to find more instances, in my caching areas, where the NM indicator is not accurate. Some COs don't always reset or if the CO isn't active but the wet log that generated the NM was replaced, the NM remains for months/years.

    Import GPX file

    We'll have to wait for Nic to chime in. I don't know what might be cause the spinning on import.

    Import GPX file

    I watched the video and I see where it's not working - sorry for not checking before I posted. Is that an existing list you are loading into? Can you try a new list, which is what I did and worked for me. Just as a test.

    Import GPX file

    In Safari it is even easier/less steps and it worked for me. I opened https://www.dropbox.com/s/42k9u1acr92reh3/gcunicorn_2020-06-25_11-02-21.gpx?dl=0 in Safari and most of the same steps take place. It is a little different after the Download step as I need to click the Download link at the top to the right of the URL bar. That opens a Downloads dialog and clicking that, for me, opens Cachly at the Import GPX screen. Do you get this screen/dialog and what happens when you press on the downloaded file?

    Import GPX file

    Everyone's system is a little different depending on what apps are installed, etc so I'll try and walk you through me processing the link you said. It might not be 100% the same for you but maybe close enough. I have Dropbox installed on my phone but I didn't us it as part of the steps. I long press the link to https://www.dropbox.com/s/42k9u1acr92reh3/gcunicorn_2020-06-25_11-02-21.gpx?dl=0 and open in a new tab in my browser (Chrome). I select continue to the web site vs install/use the dropbox app. That presents a browser screen with a Download link that I click and select Direct Download (vs Save to my Dropbox). I get a small option at the bottom of that browser screen and press Download again, I get another small option at the bottom of that browser screen with two options. One lists your file name and Open in... and the other option, for me, was for Google Drive. I select Open in... My phone opens a familiar window when you typically do a Share on the phone. Here again depending on what you have installed, Cachly might be in different places. I don't have anything for Cachly if I scroll down the options on that window, and I don't show anything for Cachly when I scroll across the listed app icons, so at the end of the app icon list I select the icon with three dots labeled More. The more screen brings up a long list that will depend on what you have installed. For me, I scroll way down the list and I see Copy to Cachly there. When I tap Copy to Cachly, it launches Cachly and goes to the Import GPX screen in Cachly Not sure if you needs steps from here but I'll include them. I tao Choose Offline List at the top of the Cachly Import GPX screen Select an existing list or press the + in the top right of the Cachly screen to create a new list which you then need to select After selecting a list, adjust any other options and then tap Import in the top right of the Cachly Import GPX screen Tap the Lists icon at the bottom and re-select your list and you should see the caches If the above doesn't work, which step in the process are you not able to match against something on your phone?
  13. You can set this as the default. Tap More at the bottom of the main screen. Tap Settings and then scroll to the section with the heading Log Defaults. Toggle the option for Send Log Now so it shows as the screenshot here. That will set the default to what you want when you tell Cachly to log a cache.

    Camera part of scanning trackables not working

    Hmmm - when I click the scan icon I get a screen without a green Cachly Scan header at the top like you posted. If you look at https://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Main_Page#Scanning_a_trackable that is what I see after pressing the scan icon by the arrow. It has no header and looks more like the screen you'd see when launching the camera app. Maybe someone else is able to suggest what is going on.

    Camera part of scanning trackables not working

    If you press the Trackables link on the bottom of the main screen, you'll see a screen in the app that should look like the one in this screen snippet. What happens when you press the scan icon the arrow is pointing to? That should open up a new screen that looks like you camera app with a darker bar across the middle.

    Error v7 when trying to add friend

    See if this post helps - https://medium.com/@cachly/friends-return-to-cachly-how-to-setup-c83cd8c7cf7f This is due not to Cachly but what is or isn't allowed by your friends on Geoaching.com . The above article should explain what they need to do.

    Support for profile links

    Not that it matters to cachly but the official app doesn’t convert the markdown either on the logs you shared. This might be useful info if something unexpected is being returned that just can’t be seen. Nic will figure it out.

    Incomplete „Friends Log“

    Check with those friends you aren’t seeing and see if they have allowed the 3rd party apps access to their info. They need to go to https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/authorizations and at the bottom check the box. I’d they don’t check the box, cachly can’t display them to you.

    Support for profile links

    It would be helpful for the developer if you provided some GC codes to the caches with logs that contain the above examples.

    Log behaviour with {*FTF*}

    I’d suggest using a different FTF tag as wrapping text in *’s can be problematic. See the PGC posts at https://project-gc.com/qa/?qa=9264/ftf-tags-with If you really want to use that specific tag, what happens if you put a space before/after FTF ?
  21. Can you post a screen shot? Here is mine in English. It is the FTF Indicator option in the screen shot.
  22. FTF Is enabled and configured in the main settings screen. You tap “ ... More “ in the bottom right of the main screen and then select Settings. Enable the FTF indicator so it shows green. FTF will display regardless of the selected map.
  23. Unless you installed other keyboards like Google or Swype (if they are still around), you are using the default that comes with the iPhone. I'm not sure why you are getting it. I didn't read the link that Nic posted to see if it's somehow language/environment specific.
  24. I did a voice recorded log you can view at https://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=a603f761-3a98-4d4c-b0a8-a8dfed0ae473 and there's no symbol at the end. I tried with the default keyboard and Google keyboard selected and neither added the odd special character. I even tried with an exclamation point at the end.
  25. I can see it in Chrome on my desktop but not on my mobile. You can see it as the last character in the log. When I inspect/view source on the page I see a blank space. Haven't had a chance to test what I see when trying.
