Seriously cool. Not 100% certain how I want to use this, as the number of options and capabilities is somewhat bewildering. I just did a cross-country trip and Spot's page was...lacking. Will be interesting to see what I can do with SpotWalla. That thread with the rescue playing out (I know it's a coupla years old) was very cool, though I'm expecting more the ability to randomly see friends and inmates than anything else.

In addition, I've learned a whole bunch of do/do not techniques with the SPOT, just from the threads I saw linked after reading through this one. Great learning experience--done on my couch with a beer rather than in a ditch and unable to self-recover!

Signed up with my username, but my map tag is 1GS. I popped up on there a few miles from home (outside the security zone) coming back from my run this morning. Neat!

Couple questions. What are you guys checking form notification boxes? OK, Help, Tracking Custom? I'm signed up as LAC but only checked the Help box. Maybe I need to add others so just checking to see what everyone else is doing..

Also I seem to have spotwalla issues that I cannot figure out. When I first look at at page I see everyone on the map. The moment I zoom or do anything everthing disappears never to return. Is this an IE issue? or so I have some other issue going on.. Can't figure it out.

OK, Help, Tracking and Custom are the four different messages you can send from your Spot according to the buttons you push. On Spotwalla tick the ones you want recorded on your map. (I tick all of them).

For Tracking messages, you also need to subscribe to that option on - it costs an additional $50/pa. This will then record your tracking messages and Spotwalla will poll the Spot server every 5 minutes and upload the message.

There are some issues with IE, so if something is missing try a different browser - Firefox appears to be fine.

Thanks for the Info. I updated and checked tracking and now I can see myself on the map as LAC then as I hover over as my ADV Username like it should. Only works for me on Firefox though. Spotwalla doesn't work well for me on IE for some reason..
