Hide a geocache - not able to change coordinates

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

i`m trying to change the coordinates of my third geocache. I wanted to submit it to review, and I saw that the coordinates ( N...) are incorrect.

I tried to change it several times, but I couldn`t manage.

I wanted

N 46° 77.130

E - is correct

No matter how often I try, it doesn`t work.

I already submitted two geocaches and there were not such difficulties.

So, if anyone can help?? I would be very thankful.

Regards,

Annette / skippy 2105

Check your minutes again. The maximum number there is 59.999, before you go to the next degree.

There are only 60 minutes in a degree, like there are only 60 minutes in an hours.  So, it's similar as if you were trying to enter a time of 6:77PM... that doesn't work. 

 

Either your coordinates should be  N47 17.130, or you are actually looking at coordinates in the dd.ddddd format and trying to transcribe them in dd mm.mmm without actually converting them to the proper value.

Is it possible that your intended coordinates are more like "N 46° 47.130"?

 

I ask because you placed a cache at N 46° 49.990.

It could also be what The red-haired witch said, and they're taking coordinates in decimal format and forcing them into the degrees, decimal minutes format. 46.77130 converts to N46 46.278, which is also in the same general area.

In that case, the OP should carefully check the coords on other submitted geocache. :unsure:

Hard to tell exactly what went wrong.  The cache published on the 8th seems OK.
