Drafts on a Garmin Oregon 450

Recommended Posts

I have uploaded Field Notes frequently over the years with my Oregon 450 but when I went to do it yesterday, I received the following message:  "geocache_visits.txt" is not in the correct format.

I haven't uploaded any for a few months and see they're called "drafts" now, but the procedure is the same.  Any ideas?

Yes. Procedure is the same. The file format hasn't changed either, so something may have gone wrong with your geocache_visits.txt. Have you tried uploading again with the same error message?

One thing that can trip it up is an extra quotation mark ("). Did you maybe make a comment in one of the field notes where you mentioned something in inches like ' 6" '? The file is simply a text file, so you can open it up and scan through all the entries looking for comments with a ", then remove that character and save the file.
