Disabled cache shows as invalid

Recommended Posts

Looking up or opening a disabled geocache causes the app to report Invalid GC code. The code is perfectly valid as can be seen on the web site or the old app. Both warn in red text that cache is inactive. Being able to see a disabled cache is important to understand why and in some cases get a sense of when it might be re-enabled. The same issue exists for archived caches. In some cases, you may have found the a cache but not yet logged it before it got archived. Both disabled and archived GC codes should be allowed..

^^I agree with the above.^^

 

I headed out today to do maintenance on one of my caches that I'd disabled. I don't normally have my owned caches loaded in the GPS so I was planning on using the app... Bad plan.

 

I've been trying to use, and get used to, the free app since apparently that's our choice going forward but so far the experience has been tedious and frustrating, especially when compared to the excellent, but no longer supported, paid app.
