Geocaching site does not recognize my cache visits on oregon 650

Recommended Posts

I have been away from active caching since our covis crisis and recently got out to get about 10 new hides.  I opened up geocaching site and from my profile I selected upload drafts and then picked geocache visits from my garmin file . I got a message this was invalid file --This method always loaded my finds ..any ideas where or what is wrong--thanks twisty

Are you certain that you picked geocache_visits.txt and did not accidentally pick the geocache_logs.xml file by mistake?

I have  oregon 700 and had similar problems. I finally figured out that if there are any characters unrecognized the entire log becomes corrupted. Now I have turned of the wifi commutativity and just enter a few words to remind me of the field experience so I can craft a proper log in GSA back home.

One thing I found years ago that you do NOT want to include in your log are any quote " characters.  They will completely throw off the parsing of the logs.
