In case it is helpful to illustrate the sotagoat usage, here is a sequence in which I first displayed the current alerts, then selected the OK alert, then selected “new spot” to create a spot based on the displayed alert. On each screen i used the standard two button combination (end+power) to save a screenshot to the photo album.
First display all alerts:
Select an alert, display details:
Select “new spot” to create a spot based on the current alert:
As you can see, all the essential data has been cloned from the alert to creat the new spot. Each cloned item can be corrected/amended before sending the new spot. The comments field is defaulted to empty, but you can add comments typically like “moved here, need 1 more, help, wx hot” etc. That’s how I self spot on summits, based on my own alert.
RRT may well have been written originally for GMA rather than SOTA, and if GMA does not provide for alerts, there’s the history and reasons for the absence of alerts in RRT.
Sotagoat cannot edit existing spots or alerts but it can clone from either alerts or spots to produce new alerts or spots based on existing items.
