Well nobody mentioned the app here, so I didn't know about it. The last time I looked there was a Connect app only. My Spot II works well enough that I don't normally even think about it much.

How bizarre. Looks like the pickup coil died in my DR last night. No spark at all this morning. Guess I should have kept quiet about it.
