Add coordinates to log

Recommended Posts

Hi!  Over the last three weeks or so, I've noticed that the option to add a coordinate to a Found It log has disappeared.  It was not an option when you first typed your log, but if you edited your log after typing it, you could click a box for "add coordinate to log" and then you could do so.  This was handy when one's GPS had a substantially different coordinate read than the listed coordinates on the cache page.  That option suddenly disappeared in recent weeks.  Is there a way to get that back?

It was removed about a month ago.  See this post.  Basically, the coords weren't visible in the geocaching app, and rather than fix the app Groundspeak decided to remove the option of adding coords.  Instead, you'll have to include the coords as part of the text of your log.

 

Of course, in older logs that have added coords they still won't be visible in the app.

Adding two asterisks both before and after a coordinate string in your log will present the same result. 

 

**Coordinates**  will look like this on a posted log: Coordinates
