*** Upgrade Sunday, February 2nd ***

SpotWalla.com will be upgraded on Sunday, February 2nd between 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM America/Chicago time. This will be a relatively quick upgrade. I don't anticipate it will take longer than 15 minutes.

Here's what you can expect after the upgrade...

  • Elevation in both meters and feet wherever it's displayed.
  • For those who view trips, location pages and device widgets, the viewer's local date/time will be displayed wherever location data is shown. For instance, in the left-side pane's Last Location area and in the popup windows that appear when clicking a location on the map.
  • Over the years SpotWalla has added support for a lot of different devices. While some of the device makers offer email notifications as part of their services (e.g. SPOT and DeLorme), some don't (e.g. Bubbler GPS and SWConnect). I don't want to brag, but SpotWalla's email notifications are fully customizable. You define the format of the message, what information is contained in the message and even where that information appears.
  • SPOT has added battery status information to the data transmitted from their devices. SpotWalla will collect this information and display it where applicable.

Y'all have fun and enjoy.
