Selected info on Offline Caches

Question

Just another thought- when I download a cache into my offline list it would be nice to be able to select what info I want to be available offline- at there moment I have LITE or FULL. LITE is not really enough info but FULL takes a while to download. It would be nice to be able to select LITE BUT with Hints. Or LITE with Hints and logs. Maybe a tick box option of the sections you actually want downloaded. A lot of the time I just want the location and the hint but it would be cool to be able to select what info to put offline. Thanks.

Nic might have a different perspective, but those are the 2 options that are allowed over the API. I don't think the API provides a way to respect specific data elements so if you get the full cache, any filtering would need to occur on your iPhone and by then, it's already been transferred. So just download the info when you have a decent enough connection before going offline.

The API has three options, Lite, Summary and Full. Summary might be what you are looking for, but I am quite sure it is only a little bit faster if at all.

There isn't a way to cherry pick what data to download unfortunately.

That's a shame, it is what it is though. I have a slight work around- download the light version of 10000 caches which will give a co ordinate them only refresh the one I am going for- this giving me quick locations without waiting for long download times- good as long as I have a connection.
