    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.
  2. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    geocaching.com keeps logging me out

    For the last few weeks when running Cachly, I keep having to login to geocaching.com again. This happens maybe once every day or 2. The first time I've been logged out, Cachly usually crashes the first few launches, after which it presents the screen to login again. Cachly 6.1.4, iOS 14.0.1

    geocaching.com keeps logging me out

    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.
  15. When planning a trip I'll be looking at a specific location, sometimes moving between Live view and a couple of different offline Lists (or View All Offline Caches). Would be great to have the specific location stick, so I don't need to keep panning and zooming when switching between maps/lists. Maybe leave Live separate, but always remember the location & zoom when switching between offline lists?

    More details on 6.1 features

    Great to see the strong Cachly development! Is there further documentation on the features in 6.1? Couldn’t find any in Cachly or the wiki: How do you activate/use proximity alert? I presume images in personal notes are only accessible within Cachly — not stored at geocaching.com?

    Display roads at lower zoom levels

    For journey planning along minor backroads, would be handy to have an option to keep the smaller roads showing on the map. e.g. Be able to see the roads between caches here:

    More details on 6.1 features

    I like how the images are available in Drive, that’s handy!

    Selecting cache from notification

    On iOS (don’t know about others), you can tap & hold a link or message, then copy & paste it.

    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.

    Request failed

    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
