Activating a car trackable

Hello! I purchased a few trackables to be placed on cars. I'm just not sure if they should be activated like a true TB that travels from cache to cache or some other way. The reason this is confusing me is because no one else can "grab" it. Also... how can you log (or do you) the location. Thanks for any help on this topic!!

You activate it just as you would any other Trackable, but there actually isn't a way to prevent people from grabbing it. When people see it they will just log it as "Discovered". If you want to document the location, log a visit to each cache you find. The person who sees it won't be able to though.

 

Hope this helps. :)

If you wish to have the capability to log it into a cache (especially Event Caches, but others as well), you want all options available. If someone mistakenly "Grabs" it, grab it back.

CEH2000 - Thank you for your reply! I appreciate it very much. I'm also glad to find out that I'm not the only one with these questions :)

 

Thanks again!!

There is a way to prevent others from Grabbing it. That would be by placing it into your collection, that way only a "Discover" or a "Note" can be posted.

 

However, there is also a drawback to doing that... in that only a "Discover" or "Note" log can be posted, you then cannot use a "Visit" log either.

 

Having your personal (or vehicular) TB "Grabbed" really isn't a problem. You, the owner, always have the tracking number available to you (right on the TB page). Should this happen, and it does occasionally, simply grab it back.

 

I once had somebody grab and place a tattoo TB into -- of all things -- a micro. Boy that was a tight fit, as I am 6-5/220! I simply made a jailbreak and freed myself with a "Grab".
