Thread: Spotwalla Location Page for Bug Bash

    Spotwalla Location Page for Bug Bash

    OK, folks. The Bug Bash ’17 Spotwalla Location page is ready for you to join up! If you weren’t part of last year’s Bash, you’re asking yourself, “What’s a Spotwalla Location page?” Let me tell you:

    A location page is a map showing the last known location of multiple users. While it doesn't show each user's history, it's an easy way for event coordinators and user groups to know where their participants and members were last located as opposed to viewing each user's trip page individually.

    Spotwalla works with satellite trackers from Spot and DeLorme, as well as specific tracking apps for both Android and IOS. You can see all the supported devices here: https://spotwalla.com/help/devices.php#supported
    You’ll also need a Spotwalla account, which is free! Once you’re got your account and your tracker or smartphone app, go to here to join: https://spotwalla.com/join.php?a=a&id=456 There is a password required to join the page - just PM me for it, and you'll be all set!

    The page “goes live” on July 29, which should give you a chance to make sure your tracker is working before setting off to BBHQ. The viewing page is public: https://spotwalla.com/locationViewer.php?id=456 , and should also be available via a link from the ‘Active Spotwalla Location Pages’ link. Because it is public, consider using the Security Zone feature of Spotwalla, to avoid displaying locations you don’t want public – like your home. 😊

    Let’s see how many folks we can get on the page, and let Crankshaft ride along as we all converge on Centerville on Friday. If you can't make it in person, check in on the page during the weekend, and ride your armchair along with us! Oh, yeah, my ID on the Location is ‘CLF.’ See you at the Bash!

    Oddly enough, I went back and found last years thread because I switched phone platforms a couple months ago and hadn't installed the app yet.

    Same password. Have you set up a trip for yourself on spotwalla, just to make sure it's all working? I haven't been outside the secure zone I created for my spot since the page went live, so I don't show up yet. Do you have a secure zone set up?

    Nah I didn't do a secure zone or a trip yet. I'll do that tomorrow and see if I show up.
