If you're using a phone app like Bubbler GPS or SWTracker, polling does not apply to you. These
apps send SpotWalla location information regularly and automatically.
The satellite-based tracking devices do not automatically report their positions to SpotWalla.
Instead, SpotWalla periodically asks SPOT or Garmin if new messages exist for a device. This
is known as polling.
Generally, SPOT and Garmin devices are polled once every 10-12 minutes. If the device does not
produce a new message for more than 24 hours, the device is polled once every 30 minutes. When
a new message arrives, SpotWalla will poll the device every 10 minutes again.
If the device's configuration changes, it will be polled immediately.
