Set up sQuiddio to receive position updates though GeoSMS messages

There are a number of ways to share your current position in an automated fashion with people on your Follow List: Spot Tracker, your AIS Transponder (if you have one) and, for OpenCPN users with a GPS feed, the recently introduced plugin.

If you have none of the above, and still want to occasionally update your friends and family through your sQuiddio Dahboard, or an iframe in your blog , and IF you have a SMS-capable Satellite phone (and most of them are) and IF you are willing to spend a few seconds to type an SMS, you can avail yourself of's support for GeoSMS message to send a manual position update.
