[Problem] Creating a new Multi - Wrong calculation of distance

Followers 3

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of creating a new Multi which will replace a series of my Tradis.


When completing the form for new caches, I always get the error:

Final coordinates must be less than 2 miles/3.2 km from the posted coordinates.

As a matter of fact they are! (see screen shot below)


The 7 red circles closest to the pins indicate caches to be removed.

I'm the owner of all the caches shown on this map west of the railroad tracks, including the finals of other Multis which are not shown, but should not interfere with the final of the new Multi.


Any idea what went wrong?


Any Suggestions are welcome - Thank you in advance

Are you sure you are editing a multi-cache? That seems to be message for a mystery cache too far from the posted coordinates.


Exactly .. you should never see this message when editing Multi:

Final coordinates must be less than 2 miles/3.2 km from the posted coordinates.

Even though I'm absolutely convinced, that I was clicking the right buttons to create a multi-cache this morning (CET) repeatedly, I gave it another try a few minutes ago and -

it worked flawlessly!





Even IF I had klicked the wrong button and was creating a mystery-cache this morning, the distance between Stage 1 and the final is definitely less than two miles. Judging by the map with the red circles shown in the opening  topic, the distance between stage 1 and final is about 1/5 of a mile.

This  still leaves me wondering...



Case closed!


Thank you for your support.
