Setting up SPOT devices

The race tracking software for the Yukon River Quest uses “Spot Share Pages” to collect boat positions.  For this to work, you have to provide us with the URL for a “publich Spot Share Page” for your Spot device.

This is not particularly difficult.  You have to log in to and create a share page.  The exact process is shown in in the link below.  While these pages work in all browsers, they work much better in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera than they do in Internet Explorer.
