Spot Messenger

Taking my first trip with my spot messenger. Boring trip as far as the ride goes all 4 lane. But if any of you would like to see how spot and the shared pages work. You can follow me from Des Moines to Chicago, West Bend and home. Will leave around 7:00 tonight. I have some work in Bettendorf Ia. wed am, then head to Chicago about 11:00 to attending the Cubs game. Then ride north after the game to West Bend. Have a couple meetings in West Bend thur am and back to Des Moines in the afternoon.
The web page is
https://share.findmespot.com/shared/...fQH0dALst6AqrG
and the password is 1200LT (case sensitive).


If you log in now you can see where my wife went shopping last week. Doh!

My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

Chan - enter the password and wait a few seconds for the map page to load. Use the slider on the left to zoom/unzoom.

Re: Spot Messenger

I thought maybe this would a nice feature for my daughter at one time. Now I want to put my head in the sand and not know anything. I would think you don't want to know about your wife as well. Being in the dark isn't always the worst thing.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

Re: Spot Messenger

Agreed, but I bought this so the wife can keep track of me. Funny thing though, it seems to have the same dead spot as my cell phone right around the bar.

My SPOT page also opens up blank a lot. Sometimes I find hitting reload in the browser a couple of times will get it moving. I think findmespot.com is running on some very slow hardware...

Re: Spot Messenger

Try this one. This is a link to my CCR trip. It is a viewer that Jason Jonas wrote for SPOT tracking.
