    Draft logs - icons explained

    Thanks Nic. Case closed.
  2. 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.
  4. 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"
  6. 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    Hey Team DEMP, So before I jump into a reply, I'll take a complete lateral shift over the use of the verb "noodling". My parents used that term all throughout my life. It was an indicator of just pursuing activities at your own pace with no overall plan, just enjoying life. Then I saw a PBS segment about "noodling" in the Southern East rivers of the U.S. These guys called the activity of jumping out of a skiff in very turbid rivers swimming along the shore, feeling your way with your hands, and finding an underwater hole, shoving your hand in. If there was a large catfish in the hole it would bite onto your hand, you'd pull out your hand and flip the catfish into the skiff => noodling!!!! Anyway, I digress. As this was the first time I'd experienced this I can reply that "No" I didn't try any of your work arounds. I'm a die hard "G" fan who has come to the recognition that the "G" developer has left the building and time to move on. Mark me as a Cachly newbie, still struggling with some of the features, but committed to changing gears and saying good bye to "G". Cachly is sure a clunker when it comes to loading offline lists, but I digress. I have absolutely no time for the official app, don't even have it installed. Should I experience this again, I'll try the work arounds you suggest, especially the "airplane mode" trick. Thanks, Sailaboat

    GPS not working when phone has No Service

    Hi Nic, We were down in Lake Padden Park near Bellingham yesterday. I was using Cachly both in Live & Offline. Things were working just fine until we got into a "No Service" area. Cachly blew its brains out. The map display showed a bunch of caches to the West (none of them in the area that we were), and no caches where we were. Switched to List mode, and could not locate the cache we'd just found to mark it as found. I played around with it for about 5 minutes, and finally, my wife told me to get my butt in gear. I switched to my old geocaching app, Geosphere, and things were just fine. As service was intermittent throughout the day, I just continued using Geosphere. Logged the first 8 caches (for later upload) in Cachly, and the remainder 13 in Geosphere. I didn't think about it at the time and didn't take any screen shots. Using an iPhone 5S running 9.3.5 Cheers, Mark

    Loading a GPX file distributed at an event

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I'll try it tomorrow. Cheers, Sailaboat
