    barefootguru reacted to Bolling in Best workflow for 5,000 offline caches   
    Ok Nic said it should be the "Date Downloaded" filter. 
    So, import PQs to update caches. Filter on Date Downloaded and set prior to date of PQ import. Then either delete the caches in the filter or update them to confirm they are archived and then filter on archived caches to delete.

    I feel that it is import information to have in a prominent location. I will look into reducing the size slightly.

    barefootguru got a reaction from Nic Hubbard in Where does Cache Note come from?   
    Thanks guys.  @Nic I'm always careful with the cloud, and GS slightly more than the others   So I'm wanting a way to backup the Personal Cache Notes I've created — whether they were created within Cachly or on the site.
    I do download PQs from within Cachly, so thanks for confirming that will backup my notes for unfound caches, as they're covered in my existing PQs.
    Sounds like I can't use the builtin My Finds PQ GPX download to backup notes for caches I've found though… I'll have to write my own PQs?

    barefootguru got a reaction from Necro in Problems with waypoints   
    V3 is misbehaving for me with waypoints:
    waypoints are duplicated numerous times in offline lists:  first image shows the offline waypoints, 2nd the live. can't delete a waypoint… possibly because it's duplicated:  see 3rd and 4th images. Cachly seems to be overriding my waypoint name if it's corrected now?  Maybe not let the user edit the title, or overwrite the title so it's obvious? Cachly 3.0.1

    barefootguru reacted to Team DEMP in DT Loop Filter   
    Nic - Not sure of your GC profile so I used rragan (congrats on find #5000) as that should work for you and look the same for me when I describe it. Regarding this specific thread, I'm not interested in it being handled in Cachly but wanted to explain this. 
    If you go to https://www.geocaching.com/p/default.aspx?guid=744a4c8e-9c58-4e68-bb57-62576570320a&tab=stats#profilepanel you should see rragan's profile & stats. When you view this page, scroll down to the Difficulty / Terrain grid which is 9x9. A goal is to fill the grid out by finding at least 1 of each of the 81 squares that cover every combination of difficulty/terrain ratings. 
    The grid shows the # of caches found in each combination. Completing the "challenge" would show at least 1 cache in each square. "Looping" is finding all 81 x2, x3, x4, etc. If you look at the grid for rragan when I posted this response, you'd see that each square has at least a 2 in it, so he's found all 81 twice. To find all 81 x3, he'd need to log another cache in every square D/T combination that currently shows a 2.

    You can easily see the next "loop" but what was requested in the initial post is to look beyond the next loop and look at ones that are in loop+1 & loop+2.

    barefootguru got a reaction from ChrisDen in GPS not working when phone has No Service   
    Something to keep in mind is the iPhone uses Assisted GPS:  if you have a network connection it can take up to 30 seconds to download satellite data before your location can be calculated.  Without a network connection this maximum increases to 10+ minutes.

    But the existing caches all have circles, so you just ensure you're outside them?

    Currently the images that are in the body of a description are not saved offline. It would take a bit of work to support this feature but we do have it on our list.

    I have reported this to Apple legal. Let's see if anything happens. We do have a trademark on the word Cachly so they should at least force this developer to change the name.

    The date might be the PQ date… whenever I download a new PQ it always goes to the top of the Offline list (as Nik says).
    Tap Edit to arrange them in your desired order.

    Yes, you can use iTunes and save the entire SQLite database (actually all three sqlite files) to your computer. Then hook up a different device and this time use the "Add to" option in iTunes and you can overwrite the database on your other device. I tested this and it works great.

    I'm in New Zealand and my Cachly logs now default to the correct day, instead of lagging a day if submitted before 19:00 (Cachly date correction is turned off).
    Feels like GS is going in the wrong direction by removing what little timezone support (UTC) they did have.
    Be interesting to see if they handle finds around midnight now and during daylight savings correctly.

    barefootguru got a reaction from Nic Hubbard in Should offline lists and pending logs be user specific?   
    If Cachly had a shared database then if you logged in as a different user you'd see somebody else's data, which seems wrong.
    I'm guessing Groundspeak won't let you access an internal ID which doesn't change?
    So I think the existing behaviour is correct.
    If there's no data when starting the app, you could display a dialog saying data needs to be downloaded, including if you've renamed your username?

    Welcome to Cachly 
    Having a line linking your position and the destination makes sense to me, and I've seen it used in other (non-caching) navigation apps.
    You can always just back out to the main map screen and do your own navigation from there.

    Just look at the subscription as paying Groundspeak to host the cache database, and ignore their atrocious app and questionable website design

    Minor correction. Testing shows it only works if you omit the question mark before gccode keyword.
