    Loading a GPX file from other than Dropbox

    Very straight forward. Worked slick. Thank you!

    Loading a GPX file from other than Dropbox

    Many thanks. I will give it a try right away.
  3. My caching friend doesn't have access to my Dropbox. Is there a way to simply send (e.g. e-mail) him a GPX file which he can then load into a list on his phone? The list would be blank until the file was imported to the list.

    Draft logs - icons explained

    Thanks Nic. Case closed.
  5. In reviewing my draft logs, I see a couple of small icons at the base of the log entry, with zeroes beside them. Is there a "key" to these icons? Are there more than just the two? Thanks.

    Just a quick question on searching for caches

    We found the ability to drop a pin and move it around very handy as we were trying to identify possible hiding locations for a very confusing field puzzle. Question for you. Is there any way to turn on the radius display for a pin? I brute forced one playing around by turning the pin into a cache. However, I had to give it a name, GC number, type, difficulty, terrain, size . . . Thanks.
  7. Deleting offline sets takes quite some time. I don't really see the value of having an onscreen counter of the number of caches counting up to the final number of caches in that set. Could you turn off the counter? Another possible approach for onscreen counters, not only deletes but for loads as well would be to have an option for two forms of feedback "verbose" or "minimal". I'd hope that on minimal, it would speed things up.

    Sorting by Distance only

    I am trying to sort my offline cache set by distance alone. Can't figure it out. The app seems to add in cache type as well, which I don't want. I'm guessing this is "operator error"
  9. I think the current implementation works well. How pervasive is this feature request? Frankly, I never would have thought to pose the question.

    Filter Options for 3.0

    Hey Nic, My workflow is: - run Pocket queries on geocaching web site. The only caches I exclude in my PQ's are puzzles. I have a separate PQ and a separate database for unsolved puzzles - load the pocket queries into GSAK (I run 10 queries each day), which then load into 5 separate data bases (it's all automated with macros) - from within GSAK run a check on cache status (disabled & archived are now flagged in the GSAK database) - run another macro to generate a GPX file in my Cachly dropbox folder. This macro has all my filtering in it. I typically filter down to available and no events. I only put solved puzzles in my main database to prevent heading off into some corn field on private property only to realize it's the placeholder, not the location of the cache So in a nutshell, I do all my filtering on my exported GPX file in GSAK. From within Cachly I import a clean ("clean" as in what I want it filtered too) GPX file. I would probably not use any filtering in Cachly. Cheers

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    Going back to the subject of this post. Should I experience the issue with the GPS not working in a "no service" area is there anything you recommend I should try? I see that as of iOS 8.3 that airplane mode doesn't affect the GPS, so switching it on shouldn't do anything for the Cachly app. It doesn't sound like it's pervasive, and I'm not sure when I'll be wandering around in a "no service" zone again.

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    Actually, I have drifted way off course in this thread. Will stop adding new topics and start a new one with respect to load times.

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    regarding my current location. Nope, it was only Cachly which had issues. Google maps & Geosphere were just fine.

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    Hi Nic, With respect to "clunker" I believe Cachly's data base is a wipe and reload. Whereas true databases load just the delta's. Geosphere loads the same caches in less than 20 seconds, to an existing database. Cachly, I just put the phone down and come back after 20 minutes to see how its doing.

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    The issue was when my phone displayed "No Service" Cachly was incapacitated when it came to determining a fix for where I was. My Google Maps and Geosphere had no issues. Cheers, Sailaboat
