Perhaps of interest to people using a PLB like SPOT of findmeSPOT.com.
Spotwalla.com supports a couple of features that are improvements to the Corp page and supports several types of PLB's including gpx-supporting generic apps (which I have no idea about). The email alert system is superior to the system at findmeSPOT and SW supports a pre-defined route.
A new website that I am thinking is going to prove better is maprogress.com. I am still working with the features but there is one feature that really stands out. Allowing the general public to follow you has risks. Each site has a method to secure the tracking data with a password. Maprogress also has a method to delay the data (for days/weeks) for a public map. This is handy for interviews posted newpapers or with people that you meet along the way.
I am working on another project just now, but if someone is expecting to paddle the CT in the near future, perhaps I could help with setup. I have NOT updated my map and data of the CT in quite awhile, but the path has changed little.
