Can you login to SPOT and find your tracks?

With my Sister, I just gave her my login and she can use it just like myself.

Do you know how to check the individual boxes (My GPS Locations) and then ask to see them on the map?

fwiw and bears repeating since it seems to trick new users: it can take up to 20 minutes after pressing OK before the coordinates are sent (sounds like you already understand this part). The OK LED will blink until the info is sent and then the footprint LED will resume blinking. This is when it's ok to turn the unit off at the end of the day.

You can create up to 10 shared pages per Spot unit on http://login.findmespot.com and it works fairly well, but even better than that is Spotwalla!

Go ahead and create your shared page, then get the url for the shared page then hit Spotwalla and create a Trip or Location page.

Here's an example of a "Location Page". It's the ADVRiders one.
