Why can't my TB be discovered?

Recommended Posts

I have a TB on my car and a fellow cacher found the tracking number. When he wanted to log it, he is unable to find the 'discover me' log. He can only see the 'write note'. I can't figure out how to fix the issue. The TB # is TB6WQRW. Can someone help me please? I would appreciate it very much.

I went to the TB page and Discover was an option.

I had the same as the others, Grab it from you, Write Note, and Discover.  It's not an error on your end...   :)

Have they already discovered it? I think once you've discovered it, you can then only write notes....

Thank you so much for answering. I will check and see if he has already discovered it in the past and if that might cause the 'note' only log.

The post above yours has NanCycle say that's not so. She is correct.  You can Discover trackables numerous times.

I just checked on one I Discovered recently.  My options were "Write Note" and "Discover"...

You (or a moderator?) might want to edit this post and remove the TB number now that your issue is resolved.

The TB number is OK to post. It's the tracking code that's to be kept secret. :)

I don't think the issue is resolved yet. I'm still interested in the end of the story.

Whether the issue is resolved or not, that is the Reference number, not the Tracking code.

The Reference number simply introduces you to the trackable's page...      :)

When I attempt to log your vehicle via the official geocaching app, the only option I have is WRITE NOTE. When I go online, I see all of the options. I tried it three times and got the same results.

I think that's because you don't have the tracking code.

Pardon my ignorance. How do the two methods (the app and online at geocaching.com) manage trackables differently? For one is the tracking code essential, and the other it isn't?

Thank you.

On my official geocaching app I have three options: discover, grab, and write note. For the TB from the OP.

In order to grab it or discover it I need the tracking code. If I just want to write a note I do not need that code.
