Offline information not saved nor warned

Recommended Posts

Without realising it we were looking at caches which we had seen while using a temporary wifi.

Drove to the cache location and all looked well.

However the description etc was shown as  not available while working offline.

However it seemed that we could log the cache and add comments.  It was only later that we realised the logging had not taken place despite no warning message.

Do we need to set something to prevent this happening?

Peter on holiday and now a little frustrated after failing to log.

Any logs you created while offline are saved in the app in a pending logs queue. If you go online again on that device, the logs should be submitted automatically the next time you open the Geocaching app. Did that not happen for you in this case?

I need to clarify but no that did not happen.

 

When I successfully download and nominate as offline the system works.

 

However when I do not nominate a download the geocache details as declared as not available offline.   

I suspect this happens when I view caches but not specifically download.

The cache does not show the exclamation mark on the map and any logs are lost.
