    Have a legend for the map

    The offline OSM has a variety of dashed line colours to mark ¿different? kinds of walking tracks (blue, brown, red…). Would like to see an easily accessible legend somewhere, maybe an entry on the new press-and-hold map popup menu.

    Many app restarts if the app is in background

    This got much worse with iOS 13 I typically see it when I'm in Cachly, pull down the Control Centre and take a photo, then go back to Cachly — it's been killed, so I lose the tab I was on, and the list I was in. iPhone 11 Pro

    Becoming a patron

    Cachly 5.2.6 displays patrons under the About screen. How does one become a patron, and how much is the donation? (Suggest that info is also added to the patrons screen)

    Wrong 'Original Coordinates' when offline

    Remember cache details are now shared between lists, so if it exists in another list it'll still be an 'old' cache.

    You're sure you're logging out of geocaching.com from within Cachly? Tap on …More at bottom right of screen, hit the Logout option at top right of screen. Then you can login again.

    Filter on owner name is case sensitive?

    I’m using a filter on an offline list, Owner Text matches ‘skindo’. It picks up a different set of caches from ‘Skindo’. Same outcome for ‘contains’. Please consider a more useful and standard approach of making the search case insensitive. Cachly 5.1.4

    Filter on owner name is case sensitive?

    Thanks for checking, that did solve my issue. And great that Cachly supports regex! A few suggestions for consideration: 1. rename Matches to Regular Expression — I can see people getting pretty confused when they expect a dot to match a dot, etc. 2. add an Exact Match option, which would perform a straight text search like I was trying to do 3. make regular expression searches case insensitive by default

    Filter on owner name is case sensitive?

    I just tried on a 2nd device: cache 'GC397JN Xeyr cache burada yoxdur' in my offline list has an owner of 'Skindo'. If I set the filter to Owner Text Matches 'skindo' it disappears.

    Request failed

    I thought this might be triggered by the usual annoying ¿monthly? re-login that geocaching.com requires, but the device I had to reauthorise 2 days ago just needed the same fix again.

    Request failed

    I had the same lockout on 1 of my Cachly devices. The Bad request 400 suddenly started popping up for any online functions. Selecting Logout (of geocaching.com), and logging in again fixed it.

    Pending Logs losing data

    FYI just struck this again in 5.0.4 (1)

    log without date

    Sounds like you struck this bug
  13. The View Travels map for a trackable inherits the map type (offline, Apple, etc.) from the Live and Offline screens, but there’s no way to change it. So often when viewing the travels I need to switch back to the other screens, change from offline to Apple Maps for the greater coverage, then switch back to trackables map. Would be helpful, and more consistent, to add the ‘switching maps’ icon to the bottom of the trackables map.

    Add button on trackables to switch map

    It's bugged me before, but couldn't find on the forum from a short search

    "cachly-07-14-2018-2203.txt" is not in the correct format.

    This is the current thread if you can work out the trigger:

    Streamlining imports

    And… is there a reason the Save Images setting shouldn't be remembered between imports (I always turn it on)?

    Streamlining imports

    Also when creating a new list, Cachly should select it too, to save a needless step.

    PQs now pausing in 4.3

    I'm downloading my usual weekly pocket queries in 4.3.1 & 4.3.2 and receiving 'downloading paused' for 60 seconds once or twice per PQ. Each PQ is around 800 caches. This never appeared in previous versions… is it an intentional change?

    PQs now pausing in 4.3

    Yep, but that's what I've always done. Maybe you made them too fast for GS

    Cachly v4.3.1 plus improvements

    I think it’s fine — there’s a large button at the top left for logging the cache, which changes its label depending on the found state. And if you did change it to navigate to the log, you’d then need a relog button somewhere else.

    Caches not working

    Do you know if there are actually caches hidden near you? e.g. from looking at https://www.geocaching.com/map

    Field Note Feature & GPX Export

    That looks identical to exporting pending logs at the mo: (Ignore double spacing, that’s just the forum) Under Pending Logs, tap the … then Export .txt File. (I use this as a temporary backup to iOS Notes)

    Field Note Feature & GPX Export

    This sounds like what the newish gc.com drafts are for: upload a draft log from Cachly, edit on gc.com, then submit it.

    Not all cache types transfer

    I tapped the screen and ‘added’ a few caches to an offline list, making them Wherigo and Lab caches (to stand out). I exported the list over Airdrop to my other device, and imported them to a new offline list. The downloaded Trads and Mystery came over fine, but the other caches types — the added caches — have come across as black pins on the map, and black with a question mark if I tap into them. If I look at Additional Info there’s nothing against Type. The GC code, name, & coords came across fine, just the cache type has gone missing. Cachly 4.2.1 & iOS 11.3.1 on both devices.

    My Finds can be opened by tapping link

    Hi guys, when you’ve run the My Finds PQ, you can open the e-mail on your iDevice, open the download in Safari, then open that in Cachly. There is a wiki page which says that, but I can’t find it again now. But under the wiki pages ‘How Tos’ and ‘More Tab’, it says this process is more complicated and suggests Dropbox. Will leave someone else to fix, requires more time than I have
