  1. There’s some challenges here which are collecting caches found in different degrees of latitude/longitude.  Would be handy if there was a filter to search an offline list for that, e.g. latitude S39 01.xxx, S39 02.xxx (the filter for multis/mysteries should work on the posted coords, not the corrected).

  2. Refreshing just the Personal Note in  an offline list doesn’t trigger a database save:

    1. Go into an offline list
    2. Select a cache which has already been saved offline
    3. Tap to go into main overview screen
    4. Go into Personal Note
    5. Record what’s shown there
    6. Tap back to map screen
    7. On geocaching.com, edit the Personal Note
    8. Back in Cachly, tap on the cache
    9. Tap to go into main overview screen
    10. Go into Personal Note
    11. It’s the old info as expected
    12. Go back a screen to main overview
    13. Pull down to refresh
    14. Go into Personal Note
    15. New info as expected
    16. Tap back to main map screen
    17. Go back into cache
    18. Tap into Personal Note
    19. Old Personal Note is shown

    Can work around this by making a small change to the Personal Note after step 15

  3. Thanks Nic, great to know about the ability to add images.

    I've just tested the personal notes and they're definitely not being updated.  Maybe because it's an existing offline cache?

    1. I checked that the notes of an already existing offline cache and the notes on the website were the same
    2. I edited the notes on the website to add a line
    3. I created a new pocket query which included that cache
    4. I downloaded the pocket query, through the '…more' tab, into a new list
    5. The notes weren't updated
    6. I dragged the cache page down to force a refresh, and the notes were updated

  4. Would love to see Cachly support CarPlay.  While I usually tell Cachly to use Apple Maps to navigate, it would be great to also be able to show the Cachly map with caches directly on the car's screen.

    Would be useful when gathering a number of caches in an area, rather than setting up Apple Maps to navigate to each one; and also when there's no cellular reception.

  5. Clear map on refresh is off.

    Live map issue is inconsistent, but this will sometimes reproduce it.  Seems to be related to searching for a cache which is already on the map.

    1. have a bunch of caches loaded
    2. tap one
    3. tap the info box
    4. tap the cache code to copy it
    5. back out
    6. tap somewhere else on the map to dismiss the info box
    7. move the map so the just selected cache is off the screen
    8. zoom in
    9. paste the cache code into the search box and hit search
    10. map will stay in current position, cache isn't selected

    For offline maps, maybe it's working as intended so a feature request?  If I search for a cache code or small number of caches, it would make sense for Cachly to scroll the map to the results.

    A check mark can also show on a cache that was not sent now, so not necessarily a draft. 

    If you tap More on the bottom right off the main screen, a couple options down do you see Online Drafts ? Does that help with what you are looking for? 

    Looking for a way to filter the newly found caches after going on to geocaching.com and submitting the draft logs — turning them into actual finds.

  7. I haven't figured out the pattern, but Cachly is unpredictable when searching a list of caches.

    I usually search on the GC code, and the results can be:

    1. Live map scrolls to cache, and label is popped up — the ideal response
    2. or Live map ignores search


    1. Offline map doesn't scroll to the searched cache, but does reduce the caches down to just the searched cache (without popping label up)

  8. If I open up Cachly again after moving location, say 50 km, then hit the current location arrow, Cachly will sometimes do a slow wander around the map until finally arriving at the current location — it can take 5+ seconds.  I think this is new in the last few updates.  Pretty sure the phone has got my new location before then, so would rather Cachly jumped straight to my current location :]

    Offline maps, latest Cachly and iOS.

  9. I’d also find it handy to be able to edit Drafts in Cachly.  When online I use them over Pending logs, as they're immediately stored in the cloud and accessible from any device.

    Which works well… until I think of something else to add to the draft :P

    What are you meaning about it taking too long? The login screen?

    Wherever the dialogue came up to Login / Continue Offline… usually the map screen.  But the most recent time it was quick going to the login screen :huh:

  11. Unless I’ve missed the option…

    Would like to see offline list filters for:

    • If a cache is ticked — i.e. a find has been logged and submitted to geocaching.com.  Applying the filter would be a quick way to count a large number of found caches which are currently submitted draft logs; and also hide them from the map (the normal tick is hidden if they’re also archived/disabled).
    • If the most recent log entry is a DNF.  Could use this to quickly see what caches should be investigated while planning a large cache run.

  12. OK, thanks for the reply.  There's nothing which looks like a Cachly crash log — is there a log created when the application is terminated for not responding?

    It happened again this morning, I think the issue is something's really slow to present the Login / Continue Offline dialog — so a lot of the time Cachly is terminated for not responding.  It took 20-odd seconds this morning after the first crash.

    Once the dialog comes up, I click Login, then Agree — no username/password required.
