Drafts: Failed to upload drafts. Please try again later.


Recommended Posts


Any body any idea why I'm getting an error "Failed to upload drafts. Please try again later." on the Drafts (Field notes) page? (see attached picture pls)


I tried different browsers (Chrome and Firefox) and I tried on different computers, where my work VM is hosted in the US, so I even tried to upload my drafts from different continents.
So I accessed the page from browsers that I've never accessed it.
I tried to press [Ctrl]+[F5] to reload completely.
I tried to upload the geocache_visits.txt file from different disks (not only straight from Garmin)

Thank you.

The cause of this is usually one of two problems:

  • The first column in one or more of the lines in the file contains something other than a valid GC code
  • The fourth column (the log contents) contains extra quote marks (the parser looks for and can only handle a single paired set of quotes in this column)

It would be helpful if the error message says something like "We have troubles with parsing the geocaching_visits.txt, please check the format"

"Try again later" implies an self repairing error. But in this case the error will be thrown always.
