    I don't know how, but I know this is a feature on the android app C:GEO. I'm not sure if it works on the live API or downloaded files but either way, what a great tool. 


    c:geo does not use the API but scrapes the geocaching website site

    I just tried it and it appears to work now.  My previous attempts to use highlights were several versions ago (2.x something) when I had problems.  I've just marked some for this weekend and will try it out.  Thanks.  

    There was an issue with overwriting the highlight indicator but that was resolved a while ago

  3. Is there a way to trim logs from the offline database. Normally only the latest 3 or 4 are needed to see if there are DNFs or other issues. On some of the caches in my offline lists there are up to 30 logs. Just adding to the database size.

    I suppose it does not matter if it does not affect the speed of access.

  4. Just noticed something strange. I solved a puzzle. In the geochecker were coords for the parking and the trail head. 

    I added the three sets of coords with the puzzle solution as corrected coords. 

    I went into the official app and to my surprise the waypoints appear there as well.  I know the corrected coordinates are uploaded but how did the two additional waypoints get there?IMG_4329.thumb.PNG.c28beb9365e87b9b31fbbbbbf64a9c0c.PNG

    I even went back into Cachly and gave the waypoint an obscure name. Back into the official app and the name had changed. 


  5. Strange - I have 19 PQ's ready to download including the "My Finds" PQ which does not appear in cachly and I have 25 in cachly. I have refreshed numerous times, even exited cachly and come back in but the 25 are still there.

    Do groundspeak have any distributed servers? I wonder if we are running off a mirror that does not update regularly. I am on the other side of the globe. I will have to get one of my fellow cachers in South Africa to test.

    A downloaded PQ file doesn't get deleted when you delete the underlying PQ criteria.  The file will be available for six days, then it will disappear from your list on Cachly.  

    I am talking about when I go into the geocaching.com pocket query page and delete the PQ and the related file that is normally available for 7 days.  If you delete the file on the second tab (Pocket queries ready for download) it disappears from the list of available files on the web site but does not disappear on cachly or other caching apps.
