Any SPOT users know how to upload map to a blog?

Sorry i am a techno-dolt. Can I use Spot route waypoints/track detail to upload a map onto my blog? Thanks!

Hi,

What I do is to get the map on my screen in a browser, and then just take a screen shot of it. For a Mac, I use shift-command-4, and then use the cursor to outline the area you want in the picture. (it will save it on your desktop.)

Don't know how to do it via windows, thankfully

Then just upload it to your blog like any other picture.

On a Windows machine use PrtSc (Print Screen) that captures the screen. Open Paint (or another photo editor), Paste and Save.

Like this?

http://blastoffadventures.weebly.com/ecuador

If so, from findmespot.com, and you need to make an "adventure" for specific timeframe. Once you have your "adventure", you can copy the code

**You need to put a Less than sign before this code and a less than sign at the end too!** If I do it now, you won't be able to read it.
