    rragan got a reaction from ChrisDen in Coords of Mystery-Finals on Map   
    Once you have the final coordinates, add them as a waypoint and tap the Is Corrected Coordinate button. Save the waypoint. There will now be a red triangle on top of the cache icon so you can spot it. However, in Live view, the Geocaching.com API only returns caches based on published coordinates. You will still see the red triangle but only if the published Coords land in your search area. The displayed position will reflect the solved location. Offline lists always show the final Coords. I keep an offline list named "Solved" where I save all solved mystery caches. I can examine it and see what is in my Tour area easily.

    While on the subject, a way to get saved location and Waypoint Coords in multiple formats would be helpful from time to time.

    Currently, tapping the Coordinate on the cache page switches it from Degree-Decimal minutes (DM), to Decimal Degrees (DD). From time to time, I need the value in Degree-Minute-Seconds (DMS) format. How about making the rotation include the 3rd common format? In each case, long press copies the coordinates in the displayed form.

    If the data is already full why not just save it with no chatter.

    Works great so far. One of the most powerful PC text editors,Textpad, had huge flexibility with only a handful of features
    - Mark line/unmark line
    - mark lines found by a search plus Mark All/Unmark All
    - Invert marks (e.g. NOT)
    - Actions on marked lines: delete them, copy/cut them
    - Search supports regex 
    Except for regex, Cachly now has the primitives: Highlight=Mark,NOT, Filter plus highlight results. Delete filtered results, save visible having filtered on highlight. Highlight ALL is coming I think. 
    I am empowered.

    In an upcoming version Cachly will allow tapping of coordinates in the Personal Note and be given the option to create those as a Waypoint. 
    Very correct.

    Recanting my comment. I really would appreciate having my log on a cache kept in the local DB. I realize it is not on the server but having it there is invaluable when you get a Phone A Friend plea for help. The log can trigger key memories. I would only put detailed info about the hide and container into a cache note lest I create a spoiler log. I only do that for some noteworthy ones though. That's when the log is handy.

    I put key reminder info into the cache note which can be more explicit than a log entry. It is always visible without searching. If I really need the log, open in Geocaching.com and scroll back until I find it.

    rragan got a reaction from Michael in Waypoints on map   
    I dithered on my opinions on this one earlier. Having hiked for a 54 stage multi yesterday, I keenly felt the inability to spot other caches along the way to the next waypoint. Overall map view did not show the next waypoint of the multi and what opportunities might lie along the way. Getting back to the original multi to plot the current waypoint after diverting to find a nearby cache was not easy. 
    I think what would have served is
    a setting on global map view to you show all waypoints a way to highlight a waypoint so I could spot the currently sought one quickly in map view with context about what was nearby on the way to it. This suggests waypoints could have a small set of associated data like highlight and a note field to record info for multi step field puzzles Better coupling of a displayed Waypoint to its cache. E.g. Option on Waypoint press to open the waypoints screen of the parent to see it and other waypoints. I should be able to get from a waypoint to the parent Cache to do things like see the description, hint, etc. This becomes more important with all waypoints shown on map as it also helps to determine the cache the WP belongs to.  Sorry if this wandered off off into a longish list of Waypoint features but each step seemed to open up further needs.

    rragan got a reaction from Dbricks in DeLorme Map over lay   
    Let's be more general here. An Android geocaching app Geooh supports KML and Geo JSON overlay files which could be a variety of different boundary types. DeLorme is one type they have. I hadn't noticed it but the county boundary files are an in app purchase so their free app might make money off of extras -- though their feature list is huge.

    Yes. I will add a feature where you can tap the current location and create a waypoint from that.

    When I'm navigating through the bush, I really want to capture waymarks so I can find my way back. I want it quick and easy.  
    How about a long press on the coordinates at the bottom of the Compass screen? This would prompt for a name and offer action to save it as a new Location or as a User Waypoint.

    I agree that it is a pain to delete. In 3.1.1 my plan was, that if a user taps into the description field it will clear our default text.

    This will become largely a moot point for me when/if Cachly makes coordinates in text anywhere into a pressable hot link with options of navigate to, create location, set as Corrected coordinate, and Copy. Then I will rarely need to paste text into the Direct Input field

    rragan got a reaction from Btwchen in Multiple offline list addition   
    I believe the ability to have multiple offline lists selected at once is in the plans. The other side of that coin is needed.
     The ability during "Add to Offline List" to select multiple offline lists to add a cache to. For example, a solved puzzle might go on the solved list and also on the East Bay list to make it show up when I'm caching in that area and on a third list if it has a DT combo I need for my grid. 
    Adding to multiple lists and using multiple lists are independent features and could be implemented independently.
