So let's get on with it...
SpotWalla went live as a paid-for service about 6 weeks ago on February 1st. There were a lot of questions regarding the new funding model - mostly due to my inability to effectively communicate. Over the last six weeks questions have dwindled. I think it's because users are seeing it in action and it all makes more sense now.

The Iron Butt Association and SpotWalla have strengthened their relationship this past weekend when the IBA announced the new Premier Plus program in Jacksonville, Florida. Premier members who renew their membership as a Premier Plus member will receive a coupon that can be redeemed for one year of SpotWalla. The coupon covers all storage/map fees as well as device activity fees for up to two devices.
So if you're an IBA member and use SpotWalla, do yourself a favor and join/upgrade to a Premier Plus membership. You will save over 70%. This is based on year-round storage/map fees and year-round device activity fees for two devices.
As many of you already know, pictures can be associated with any location. The problem has been that you had to find a place to host the pictures and then update the location with the small and large picture URLs. Given that more and more picture-hosting sites are not allowing cross-posting, SpotWalla is stepping in and solving this issue by allowing users to upload and host their pictures on SpotWalla.
Picture-hosting on SpotWalla will evolve in the months ahead, but we're starting here with uploading pictures for messages. For more information on this process, check out this help page for more information:
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please email SpotWalla Support and we will help.
