tks @Mark Blue ! but it didn't work until i quit RS on desktop and quit RS on IOS and restarted although i don't know if the desktop restart triggered it or it finally activated on its own. i rarely use my iphone unless i can't get to the desktop and this wouldn't work if you didn't have the iphone app it looks like.

still, it's one less step than having to go back to SN and hit some random update buttons. using that method i also have to quit and restart the RS apps. and if i only have my iphone it would be a real pita to have to open a web browser to open SN to hit those buttons.

thanks!

no, i realize that. what i'm saying is that up until you showed us that method, i would have to go to SN in a web browser and hit some of the update buttons, usually position update even though i'm static. then i would have close and restart the RS app either on the phone or the desktop or both. before you posted the alternate way, if i hadn't had access to the desktop browser i'd have to pull up SN in an IOS browser which i've never tried. but your way works and i'm still showing active in the desktop RS app, but not in the IOS app.

the only other thing to determine is the status of the IOS app. it could be open, but the iphone sleeping or on lockout. it could be in the background with the phone active or in the background with the phone locked. or it could be closed by swiping it away. but it appears i've timed out on IOS because the phone was on standby on the lockscreen for an hour or so. but i have no idea why i'm inactive on the phone but still active on the desktop.

there seem to be too many moving parts to this and i suspect that if all i had was the phone and i wasn't static, it wouldn't be an issue. but since i'm static it won't be a problem doing your procedure when i want to indicate that i'm actively spotting.

i wasn't when i posted the reply. but i did your trick and it activated me again on the iphone. but i was still active on the desktop RS app yet inactive on the iphone. well, the red dot wasn't showing, i didn't check the spotter list on the phone.

but believe me, this hack will help me tremendously. it's just i've done so much beta testing in my career that i can't help trying to work through to a solution or a root cause. :)

oh, and this time after i did the procedure, i kept my hands off things and the red dot came back without any intervention although i didn't time how long it took. and, as i said, it never disappeared on the desktop app.

i'm trying something. i left the RS app on iphone running as the top app. the phone goes to lockscreen after 2 minutes and i'm going to check every hour or so to see if i actually time out or not if i never let RS go to background while i run another app.

yeah, it times out if it's not open and active. but when it times out i'm still active in the desktop app although that times out later on, it just holds onto it longer. but knowing the behavior means i can workaround the issue.

Hey I'm trying to sign into radarscope with my spotter network login and it's not working. Any suggestions or help is appreciated. Thank you.

I’ve been having the same problem lately, all my settings are right on my iPhone but when I toggle it on or off my location doesn’t show up. My name doesn’t even show up in the list. I also downloaded RadarScope on my laptop, and it’s not even showing my name under SpotterNetwork. Is there a way for someone to check this out? It’s worked several times before and then I’ll go back on my app on the iPhone and my red dot is no where to be seen. As to laptop I’ve never seen my own red dot but can see others. I don’t even see my name either. I spent the $29 for RadarScope for my laptop just to report when I’m chasing and spotting and can’t do so if I’m not able to even see my own name or even a red dot. Last name is coody, no where to be found like I don’t exist

I just checked RS and found you rather easily. It looks like you’re NE of Ft Smith by a few miles.

I’d recommend checking the two settings depicted below in RS and making sure you also try following the advice in this post up-thread, found on page 2, post #50.
