Geocache Coordinates not accepted by Submit a Geocache page

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

1st time hiding a geocache. I am trying to put in the coordinates of where I want to hide it, and when I put it into the box and hit "Confirm Coordinates" button, nothing happens and the continue button does not light up. Any ideas? My numbers are:  N 039 34.396' and W 105 09.317'

( I excluded the tick marks at the end.) 

Thanks! :)

Those are too many digits. It would me more like:  N 39 34.396 W 105 09.317

Maybe?

LAT degrees are two digits, LON degrees are three digits (although you usually may omit leading zeroes if any).

Hey Kunarion, thanks for writing back. I tried removing the leading zeros, but still no luck.

Sorry...  Yeah...  The cache page also uses no comma.

 

So try this and see if it's what you need:  N 39 34.396 W 105 09.317

Make sure your home location is set in your profile. I recall something about this causing problems submitting coordinates on the cache creation page.
