Hello, I just got a call from colleagues trying to activate YU/ZS-102. They are using Sota Spotter app to check if they are right on the summit, and although they were sure they are on the summit, the app was directing them elsewhere.
I know that the this particular summit had its height and position corrected two years ago, in YU association update of March 2018. (the old incorrect height was 1010m, the new correct height is 1025m). It turned out that Sota Spotter is using data form old, outdated summit database.
I just installed Sota Spotter myself and confirmed that the coordinates of YU/ZS-102 are outdated. While trying to perform an on-demand update of the summits database, I got the message “You have the latest summits database. Current database: 20200202”.
Just to be sure, I checked sotadata, and the coordinates and height displayed there are correct, as expected.
Is anyone else having this issue? There were lots of association updates and coordinate corrections lately, I guess somebody else should have noticed before this problem.
