Hi,

Hopefully someone out there knows the answer !

I'm really enjoying my CTX 3030 and the bonus of being able to plot searches and record find locations on the XChange 2 software is great.

A really useful tool for anaylising searches etc.

One area of the software I find frustrating is that I can't seem to edit the Geohunt names.

At present when you transfer a search from the CTX 3030 to XChange 2 software, the Geohunt search is shown as GE01 or what ever number is next in the sequence.

Unlike a Find Spot markers, I dont seem to be able to rename the search to anything of my choosing and if I try and attempt to save the new name I get an Error - saying "Start must be before or equal to the End" whatever that means in computer speak !!!!

I've checked the forum and can't see solution to this problems, can anyone out there help please ?

Many thanks :-/

Hi, just checked, it is working OK here ?

Just so I am not confusing the issue, these are Geohunts that have been copied off the CTX and put in a folder within the xchange program ?

Hi Dave,

Yes that's right, I can edit everything else except when I try and change the name/title of a Geohunt !

Not tried it but found this on the net.

I haven't had any trouble changing the name of GeoHunts. It can't be done in the CTX, only in the XChange2 app, after the transfer from the CTX. It sounds like you already know that, since you can change names of FPs and WPs. The error message sounds more like it has something to do with the starting and ending times/dates of the GeoHunt. You aren't editing a date or time in addition to the name change are you? I changed the name and SAVE was successful. I then changed the beginning date to Nov 22 and left the end at Nov 21. Tried to save and got the error you mentioned.

Hi Tomo,

Sorry for the late reply to your update.

Still have the same problem in that I cannot change the name of the Geohunt and I soon as I do and try and save I get that problem of an error message.

I would delete and re install the XChange software in case something has got corrupted but of course I assume I would loose all the data I have stored already, so don't wont to do that for obvious reasons.

I've got around part of the problem, by creating new files for each farm I detect on and then adding the relevant Geohunts to the right farm file, so at least I can keep a track of the searches for each farm that way !!

Thanks

Bill
