  1. Not a problem and there are plenty more folks here to help.  Maybe my patience comes from remotely helping my parents & in-laws since the 80s, though I normally have a lot more patience for folks that aren't my family!

    My suggestion selecting a different list was to just have the app open something and then re-read the list that was downloaded. 

    It might be an option to delete the offline list you recently created and re-import the GPX from Dropbox. You can delete the offline list by selecting the Offline icon at the bottom of the screen and then next to your list, select the three dots ( ... ) and then select delete. Then go thru the steps you did earlier. Maybe this attempt, don't download the images when you do the Dropbox import and see  how things end up. 

  2. I loaded the 559 caches in the GPX. 

    Search for: Curse of the
    shows 30 caches

    Search for: BB's (
    shows 51 caches

    Search for: BB's (1)
    shows 6 caches

    Search for: BB's (1) "
    shows 1 cache

    Your exact search for: Bb's (1) "curse
    shows 1 cache

    So I show a cache always returned. I'm running a beta version but I'm not sure that was an issue that was addressed. I can test later at home on another device that is running the public version to check. If you haven't yet tried, select a different offline list or close Cachly and restart and see if something gets reset. 

  3. Might help, if you able, to upload the GPX and others can test. Not sure what you are searching on and not finding. 

    You can also, after loading the GPX into an offline list, within Cachly, update the caches that were loaded and it will pull in the regular data from geocaching.com, in case it is different from the GPX exported from GSAK. 

  4. What have you done on the screenshot you pasted? 

    After you select the GPX/ZIP from Dropbox, you seen the screenshot you posted. You now need to click into Choose offline list select an existing offline list or click + in the top right and create a new offline list. Then on the screenshot above enable Save Images if you want. Import will be enabled in the top right after you select a list to import the caches into.

    Then to see the import caches, at the bottom of Cachly, select Offline and then the list you import them into and hopefully you see what you'd expect. 

  5. On the same gear icon where you disabled display your previous finds, you can scroll down to the bottom of that screen and deselect Puzzle caches. All the cache types are listed at the bottom of the Search Options screen. 

    For a GSAK GPX, you can mail it to yourself or if you use Dropbox, place it there.  If you use Dropbox, under the More screen (bottom right of the main screen) there's an option to Import from Dropbox. 

    If you use email, open your email program on the iphone, select the GPX (.gpx or .zip) and then click the Share icon which will allow you to select Cachly. 

  6. 1 - Give the following a try and see if it helps - http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Getting_Started_with_Cachly

    a - See http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Live_Usage#Search_Options and http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Search_Options

    b - Might want to know a bit more. There are different ways to get an offline list of caches on Cachly. How are you creating the GPX on your computer? What is the source creating the GPX?

    c - swipe the offline list to the left and it will show delete

  7. Is there a way a regular user can see the date & time for their logged caches?

    Is GC still screwed up with sometimes passing dates in local time and sometimes not? 

    They REALLY stink with consistently handling date/time/time zones


  8. I was going to add info that you can tap through Finds and Hides on the User profile screen at http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/User_Profile to see a map of active finds/hides. When I did it for my own profile (about 1800 finds), it showed smilies but definitely not all of them. Looking at what is displayed on the map, is it the last xxx finds? Is it the last xx days? Is it this calendar year?

    Map of the hides seems to be all, at least for me, but I don't have that many.

    Changed a bit.  Check it out. 

    If I view http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Offline_Usage on offline usage, I don't find a reference to downloading offline maps for offline usage. Should there not be a reference to offline maps? We can use offline lists with live map loading over cellular but would we want to let users know that offline maps would allow them to cache completely offline?

    Yesterday I went to the main Cachly wiki page and the first link that seemed relevant was "offline usage" but I'm not seeing a reference to offline maps. 

    I did a search in the wiki and there's a relevant reference in Map Chooser ( http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/Map_chooser ) and the How To ( http://www.cach.ly/help/index.php/How_To_List ). Can we link to one of those in the Offline Usage section? 

  10. I'm traveling without much time online. Definitely should have it called out in the login / getting started sections that you don't have any Cachly account and your userid/password in Cachly is your Geocaching.com account.

    Might also consider referencing "login" vs "signin" in the text in a couple places so it matches the text on the button. I didn't want to change those. 

    Foe the Installing section I was looking for a reliable way to link to the app directly in the app store but couldn't find a way that was ok on a device and off a device regardless of geo-location. Maybe someone knows a way?

    Made some very tiny edits before heading out for the day.
