I'm having an issue with my personal trackable. This one is logged in and out of caches I find and never leaves my possession. I, apparently, have made some choice for it not to be in my inventory any longer and can't drop or retrieve it out of caches. I can only write a note or discover it. I need to change it back so it's in my inventory and can be dropped and retrieved. Anyone know how to do this? Simply changing its "collectible status" (whatever that means) does nothing other than now it says "not collectible". Help! The national forums aren't any help either!

When I go to ADD LOG ENTRY I only get 2 options. Discover or write a note.

On you profile page at the top there is a selection for "Trackables Collection" From that page find the TB and select "Move to Inventory".

Hope this helps

Weird, I had that option on my collectible...

Oh well, glad NOSNOW was able to provide a solution Smile

Did you see there is now a visit option for trackables? It will auto dip the coin in and out of the cache for you, so you don't have to drop and then go back and pick it up.

LOVE that option for this personal coin! I wasn't dipping it into every cache like I'd like to. Now I can!

I dip my coin in every cache and it has been a pain. This is a slick update and is going to save lots of logging time.

This is great feature when you have a large TB in your inventory and there are no caches big enough on you cache run to drop it. Visiting the cache adds the miles and the owners know the TB is on the move!

I wish they had that "visit" feature a couple years ago - I got tired of spending way to much time logging finds while dipping my personal geocoin, so I released it into the wild, where it promptly went to an event and disappeared.

Same thing happened to me.
