SpotWalla is an online personal location management system with support for both satellite-based tracking devices as well as cellular phone applications.
In SpotWalla you are in complete control of your location data. You can share your location publicly and privately. And you can tailor what information is shared publicly to control your exposure.
You need three things to get started - a SpotWalla account, a working device and a trip. Don't worry about anything else because, until you have a working device and can view your locations, nothing else really matters.
So create an account, choose a supported device, configure the device and get messages/locations flowing into SpotWalla. Creating a trip is the most popular method of viewing those locations on a map.
Do these things...
An account is only required if you want to setup a device and start tracking and sharing your travels. You do not need an account to view trips or location pages.
To register and create an account you'll need the following things:
Once you have an account you can create and configure your first device. Not sure which device is right for you? See the next secion: Supported Devices

You can initiate the import process from the Device Manager or you can click this button:
We strive to keep things simple and straight-forward. Most of the time it works. Sometimes it doesn't. We believe SpotWalla's Terms of Service is one of those times where it works. Rather than inundate you with a bunch of complicated lawyer-babble, we're just telling you what you can expect from SpotWalla.
