Email Finds

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to email in find details?  I can access Email from the middle of no where in the outback but I can't access the website until I return to civilization so this option would speed up the process.

Email to whom? Do you mean to send answers to Earthcache and Virtual Owners, or are you thinking there is a way to log regular caches from email? The only way to log caches is via an app or through the website, no email will do this.

You could give a friend or family member (by email) your account password and they could log finds for you. By using email do you have a phone and/or using computer wifi? Or are you accessing via satellite?  Can you log on to geocaching.com?

Need a bit more information on your situation.

Some Apps and some hiking GPSs allow saving logs offline for loading to the site when online.  I do that from the Official Geocaching App, and on my GPS.

 

You can send an email to yourself and open it when you return... if having the log text is what “speeds up the process”.

I like the idea of kunarion in sending the email to yourself.  Curious why you feel there's a need to "speed up the process".  Thanks.

We've cached since '04  , and still waiting until we get home to log finds.      :)

Why do you think you need to log "instantly"? There's nothing wrong with logging when you get back home , nobody is pressing F5 every few second to see if you found a cache already. ;)

How many times in these forums do we see FTF hounds fuss because they ended up STF, merely because the FTF didn't log, or write a Note or otherwise instantly let the world know a cache had been found? I'd say there are lots of folks constantly pressing F5 on caches.

Sure ... but that's  "etiquette"  they've invented for their own self interest.  

The OP was around long enough to remember caching without phones.   That's why I'm a bit curious too.    :)

The TS doesn't mention FTF. The ones playing the FTF game will have to accept not getting there in time anyway even with instant logging they may be minutes to late.

Let's have a poll "do you F5 to see instant logs"? I doubt there are "a lot".

What does pressing F5 do? I use a Mac and had ve no clue what function keys do-- maybe they are important and I don't know!

Your favorite search engine will tell you (why don't people make an effort to find answers themselves anymore?)

Because I never heard of it and would not know where to look.

From the OP:

 

"I can access Email from the middle of no where in the outback but I can't access the website until I return to civilization"

 

I doubt the FTF hounds are too much a problem in this scenario.

It's all a mystery to me too. No idea what it is. Too techy for me.

It summons a super-tornado with Brock Lesnar's face.
