Favour from a SPOT owner

Post by Dave Barter » Tue Dec 17, 2019 10:23 pm

I am developing a new site to be launched very soon that is designed to help get others active. It's a completely free service built in my own time with my son so no world domination planned

I need to test pulling a SPOT message feed. Could a kindly soul with a SPOT and a subscription and a shared page give me their ESN and switch their SPOT on for 24 hours? It would help if I had more than one

Thanks

I'm not with my spot ATM but can do it on Thursday if that's any good?

Personally, I'm hoping for an App that lets me have a pizza delivery even when I've no phone signal.

Thanks, still very much in BETA but worked a treat for the Spine Race and we hope other events will use it. Will always be free without adverts. No commercial gain, developed on a shoestring.
