Field notes not uploading

Recommended Posts

I have always hooked my gps up to the computer and used the upload field notes on my home page on geocaching.com.   Today I keep getting the message that field notes did not upload , try again later.

 

Is this the geocaching site or something on my end.

 

Help would be appreciated.

This is a problem with my Oregon 700 gps.   I mark some caches found in an older gps and then uploaded the fiends just fine as field notes.

 

Can someone with an Oregon 700 give me some idea as to why mine is doing this?  Thanks

My guess is that there are some invalid characters in the fieldnote file; like e.g. an " or a Retrun inside the fieldnote.

This causes the validity check to fail on the website, making it impossible to upload the file.

 

You can try to open the fieldnotes.txt file in Notepad, and check that there are no strange symbols in the file.

Are you using the 'new' Drafts page to upload, or using the 'old' Drafts (field notes) page?  If the latter, then you may want to check whether the "ignore logs before..." checkbox is causing your problems.
