    Pictures will not post from uploaded draft logs

    There’s been some chat on the forums about drafts and pictures https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/391815-uploading-pics-doesnt-work/ https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/391659-completing-drafts-destroys-the-images-saved-in-them/

    Filter by latitude/longitude

    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).

    Download full cache data of more than 50 entries stalls.

    Interesting. Try the old 'halves' trick: create a list with the first 24 and see if that works. Then the second 24. Then keep halving. Alternatively there may be something obvious in one of the notes for the 48.

    Download full cache data of more than 50 entries stalls.

    Might be just you I’m afraid. I download PQs of around 800 caches regularly. I have seen that behaviour occasionally. Can you try from a different network? Cachly 7.1.1
  5. The cache in the screenshot was found (and hosted) by me on the 29th Feb 2020. But when I filter my found offline caches by that date, it doesn’t show. Cachly 7.7.1, iPadOS 16.3.1
  6. If I filter an offline list by a single Date Found By Me, some caches are shown as expected. But if I add some more Date Found By Me filters, with an Or for them, Cachly drops to zero caches (in this case I have 0 caches on the other dates). I’m expecting an Or to always add caches?

    Refreshing the maps zooms out

    For that second one I think you've found this.
  8. Refreshing just the Personal Note in an offline list doesn’t trigger a database save: Go into an offline list Select a cache which has already been saved offline Tap to go into main overview screen Go into Personal Note Record what’s shown there Tap back to map screen On geocaching.com, edit the Personal Note Back in Cachly, tap on the cache Tap to go into main overview screen Go into Personal Note It’s the old info as expected Go back a screen to main overview Pull down to refresh Go into Personal Note New info as expected Tap back to main map screen Go back into cache Tap into Personal Note Old Personal Note is shown Can work around this by making a small change to the Personal Note after step 15 Cachly 7.1.1 (1), iOS 16.1.1

    DNF filter

    Note if you download the caches for an area to an offline list, you can then filter that list by DNF… offline lists have much more powerful filtering.
  10. I regularly update my offline lists with pocket queries. From using Cachly (rather than specific testing), it seems images aren't downloaded and personal notes aren't updated? This means I need to rely on cell reception if I want to see images for a cache in an offline list, and personal notes can be out of date.

    Pocket query doesn't update personal note or images

    Thanks for confirming. So for PQs I need to download, download images, then update caches — that could be improved in a future release :]

    Pocket query doesn't update personal note or images

    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? I checked that the notes of an already existing offline cache and the notes on the website were the same I edited the notes on the website to add a line I created a new pocket query which included that cache I downloaded the pocket query, through the '…more' tab, into a new list The notes weren't updated I dragged the cache page down to force a refresh, and the notes were updated Cachly 7.1.1 (1), iOS 16.1

    Cachly on Apple CarPlay

    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.

    Searching caches doesn't always highlight them

    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. have a bunch of caches loaded tap one tap the info box tap the cache code to copy it back out tap somewhere else on the map to dismiss the info box move the map so the just selected cache is off the screen zoom in paste the cache code into the search box and hit search 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.
  15. 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: Live map scrolls to cache, and label is popped up — the ideal response or Live map ignores search Or Offline map doesn't scroll to the searched cache, but does reduce the caches down to just the searched cache (without popping label up)

    Filter for draft finds

    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.

    Filter for draft finds

    Cachly marks found caches with a tick when you submit a draft find. Would be handy if there was a filter to show just these caches — then after submitting the logs I could see and refresh those caches on both devices.
  18. I use Cachly for both logging caches and navigating. It can be a nuisance having the screen blocked for the time it takes to submit an online (draft) log — when slow it's anywhere from 5 seconds to a minute if the cell connection is bad (or about to time out). Would be handy if Cachly could do this in the background.
  19. 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.
  20. I regularly run Cachly on both my iPad and iPhone. If I change a highlight on one device, Cachly on the other device will crash. Lasest Cachly and iOS/iPadOS

    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.

    Syncing Drafts?

    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

    Need to keep logging in

    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

    Need to keep logging in

    Same issue, but last time I reported it was just me. What’s worse is the re-login takes so long the OS will often terminate Cachly — maybe why the settings get lost.

    Filters for ticked and DNF

    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.
