  1. Not a question, but an information: The developer of Looking4Cache has announced that he has to stop further development and support. The software is now available "as is" for free in the App Store. How it will continue (possibly as opensource) is unknown. His announcement: https://www.looking4cache.com/content/1257

    Search geocaches by name (not working?)

    Hi Nic I am using version 6.1.9 (3). Here is a screenshot of the field:

    Search geocaches by name (not working?)

    Ahhh! In that case, the German translation for this search field is misleading. It says "Geocache-Name". Thanks for pointing me to the other filter field. I did not notice this one.
  4. I have a problem with the search function: If I search for a GC code in the live map via the search field, then it works perfectly. But if I search for a geocache name (or part of the name), then nothing works at all. On the opposite, a red waypoint is created somewhere. Am I doing something wrong? In the offline lists, the search by name works as expected.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    YES! I had turned these layers off because the map displaying was slow earlier. I also didn't know that parking lots are considered as "points of interest". The icons are very small but better than nothing. Thank you!

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Have a look at the pictures 4 and 5. 4) N47 23.390 E8 23.2605) N47 23.470 E8 23.375 And to be honest: I can't see any parking lots at all. So I could name thousands of places. On the old free maps the parking lots are all marked with a blue "P". This sign is missing on the new maps. And please don't tell me that the grey area is supposed to be a parking lot (Fifty Shades of Grey or what...?). Such a pure colouring simply gets completely lost. I can't spot a parking garage like that either. Here is another example between old and new maps: The waypoint shows a parking garage of the shopping mall (N47 23.214 E8 29.850) while the grey area across the street is a normal building (N47 23.155 E8 29.813). On this section you can also see the three bus stops, which are not shown on the new maps. Good to have both old and new maps available. In urban areas, the old maps are much superior, while in the forest and off-road the premium maps are more pleasant. Especially because of the elevation lines. But also here a last example: Location: N47 20.200 E8 22.045 A quick look at the old map shows me that there is a forest house and a parking lot. On the premium map I have no idea what it should be exactly. The Freizeitkarte-osm.de would also show a fountain with drinking water at this site. Please don't take this the wrong way. I like the premium maps because they are clear and show good elevation lines. They just aren't as premium as they could be on closer inspection.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Coords (all in Switzerland): 1) N47 22.500 E8 21.115 2) N47 22.200 E8 21.625 3) N47 23.300 E8 22.755 4) N47 23.390 E8 23.260 5) N47 23.470 E8 23.375 Sorry, this is the description vom Freizeitkarte-osm.de: In Switzerland, this means that only local residents or delivery services may drive on these roads. For all others there is a driving ban. You are right: A lot of information are of course not absolutely necessary (e.g. freestanding trees). These are just examples of how much more detailed these maps are. On the other hand, this information can often be a useful source. There are not so many fireplaces or fountains etc. in the forest. Much more important are of course the routing information. Are the roads passable or are there restrictions etc.? And of course parking lots or bus stops are also important information.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    Hi Nic Here are the samples Cachly premium maps vs OSM based Freizeitkarte-osm.de maps. If needed I can also tell you the coords of this locations. A fountain (with drinking water) and a Picknick place are displayed. The light purple color shows streets with driving ban. The grey dotted line shows roads with restricted feeder service. A children's playground is displayed in the lower left corner. Free-standing trees are displayed. A bench seat is also visible. And again: roads with restricted feeder service. The arrows show a one-way street (the very small arrows on the premium maps are nearly invisible). There are also three parking lots, a church, a playground, a fountain and numerous inscriptions on public buildings. Parking lots, a petrol station and other information are also displayed here. Interestingly, the markings (parking spaces, public buildings, etc.) in urban areas are much better on the old standard maps than on the new premium maps. On https://www.freizeitkarte-osm.de/android/en/index.html you can still find a lot of information about the maps (design / imprint).

    New feature: display favorite points in percent %

    Yes, I just see in the API documentation that this value Favo-% does not exist. The value is basically calculated like this: Number of favorite points divided by number of premium member logs. Basic member logs do not count. @hidegoseek I don't agree. I prefer a cache with 20 finds and 90% FP over one with 250 FP but 1000 finds. Especially in Germany there are a lot of caches with hundreds or thousands of FP, but in % there is often a low number. In addition: activating two filters: "> 100 FP" and "> 50% FP" or something similar would give you all the possibilties.

    Premium maps - details (hiking and cycle trails)

    The premium cards are already a big step forward in Cachly. But I can just support the idea of ferda-mravenec. The possibility to show/hide details or even change the style would be sensational! My cache partner uses the Locus app on Android and when we are on the road she often has much better information on her (OSM) maps (e.g. display of fountains or fireplaces in the woods). Especially helpful is that she can see if a road is passable by car or if it is a one-way street!
  11. Hi Nic Here a little input for a super improvement: Would it be possible to display the favorite points in percent? Especially if you are travelling in a unfamiliar area and don't want to miss the best caches, this would be a very useful function! Of course you should also be able to filter or sort by percentage. If the % display is output via the API, I guess it would be relatively easy to implement such a function. Thanks!

    [SOLVED] Trackables from Fieldnotes not logged

    I visited an event yesterday and tried to drop 6 trackables with a note log. Unfortunally only one trackable was dropped! Using Cachly 5.0.4.

    No more friends (GDPR...)

    Here is the answer from the HQ: I hope they will implement this "request to follow" option soon. Interestingly, the opposite option "Do not allow Authorized Developer applications to access my public profile information" already exists in the profile. So it's a bit confusingly solved, but at least there's hope that the friends list will come back sometime. Nic, I'm sorry about the initial accusition against Cachly.

    Thank you Nic. I sent my question to GS.
