Spotwalla

Postby cammy_moir » 09 Jul 2015, 23:18

Hi. I have seen some US based members using the Spotwalla application and having followed some of this years IBA rally made me wonder. Has anyone on this side of the pond tried using it? It can be used via Andriod or IOS devices but is dependant on the internet signal. For those on the other side, how do you run yours? Via dedicated devices or smartphones? It appears a great way of allowing folk to follow your rides and is a good tracking tool in case of mishaps.

A guy I know up here has one of these fitted to his bike...

It does not have the emergency locate feature but a third party is able to track your bike and I suppose if the position does not move for a while they can contact you by phone .

It does have a hard wire kit and its a PAYG sim card which needs to be kept topped up.

I am sure there is another system but at the moment I cannot remember who does it.

I don't leave home without my SPOT II on and tracking. My dear wife bought it for me and I'm glad to use it, for her peace of mind (and mine).
