logging a cache

5 posts in this topic

Hi. I have not used my GPS in years...I have forgotten how to transfer a cache from the GPS to the website. I can't seem to find the transfer button...or was that only for premium members?

unit: Oregon 450

thanks

I used to cache with one of these, but I'm not sure what you mean here. 

I didn't think that the Oregon had the capability to enter draft logs, though I may be wrong; if it does have this function, I never tried to use it.

Are you trying to create a geocache using waypoints recorded on your GPSr?  If so, you'll need to manually enter the information into the website; there's no option to upload the waypoint directly.

If you mean something else, please clarify what you're trying to do.

I found a cache. On my GPS I logged it. I want to transfer the record of the found log back to the geocaching website.

I vaguely remember having a tool that would scan the files on my GPS and extract the logs. :/

Here's the relevant Help Center article: Upload drafts (field notes)

I'm not familiar with the details of doing this with an Oregon 450 though.

fantastic. I remember it was called "field notes" back then. The drafts button is what I was looking for.

Thanks so much
