OK, the mapper is going active and it is time to get your SPOTs up and running.
First, captain and crew, if any, should login at the old site (http://www.WaterTribe.com). Then go to the Rogues Gallery and update your mug shots. These will be used as icons in the map and when you or your shore contact posts to the Racer Logs.
Second, verify that your SPOT is setup and working correctly. Does your shared page show your OK messages and tracks. Note that we want your shared page and it is not necessarily the link that was emailed to you. If the link to your shared page does not have something that looks like this
at the end, it won't work. Note the "?glid=". The rest will be different.
Third, go to your Event in the old site and select the "SPOT Link Setup" tab. Paste the link to your shared page in the text box and click "Submit Link".
Now go to the mapper and verify that your last known position shows up. Play with the mapper to see how it works. Note that there are time delays built into the system that are beyond my control. It could take an hour or more for your positions to show up. Also, sometimes I have to shut down tracking for a bit because we are only in practice mode. I will try to announce these shut downs.
Right now, . . . tracking is UP!
