Friday, May 21, 2010 at 02:38


SPOT devices are supported in Tracker via the use of the SPOT XML feed option. To set-up your SPOT device to be visible on Tracker do the following:-

  • STEP 1: Login to your SPOT account
  • STEP 2: Click on the XML Feed tab
  • STEP 3: Click the "Create XML Feed" option (or if you've already got an XML Feed click the View Details link & skip step 4
  • STEP 4: Name the feed something like SPOT XML Interface and complete the page setup - you will need to select all "Location messages to share" and select "YES" for Share Message Detail, and ensure Security setting is "Public"
  • STEP 5: Copy the ID that appears alongside "Your XML Feed ID" and then click this link: REGISTER SPOT DEVICE and paste the ID.
The XML feed for your SPOT to ExplorOz will now be active, however you should return to this page (ExplorOz Tracker), and open the section labelled: "My Tracking Control Panel". Click "My Devices" to select your SPOT device and customise the set-up (including Device Name and Security Options). Once movement has been detected outside the Geofence you've got assigned, a map will appear in the My Tracking Control Panel with the label "Active Tracking". If you have more than 1 device in your account, each device that has been tracking will have it's own map. Management of tracking is done per device - includes Clear, Save, and Edit options. Please refer to the Tracker User Manual for more information.
