Gliders equipped with SPOT satellite tracking devices uplink position telemetry every 10 minutes to Globalstar low earth orbit satellites. SPOT sends only latitude and longitude data. GPS positions are then linked to SPOT servers and are superimposed on Google maps. SPOT is capable of displaying the track of one glider on a map at a time. The ability to display multiple tacks on a single map like a radar screen is currently in development.
Soar Truckee pilots with SPOT tracking devices: Note - we've discontinued the individual spot links section and moved entirely to the Multi-Spot tool. Once registered the TTSA staff and your friends and family can track not only you but all the registered gliders flying out of Truckee. Simply mouse over your icon and a link will appear at the bottom of the page for your shared site.
