Dear Gisteq. Please consider this request.
I did not buy the PhotoTrackr for the software to tag images, but for its tracking/logging feature. I use other software for the actual tagging of images. Normally I wouldn't mind the extra features added to the software. It is a little bloated for me but I see the value of it for others, if nothing else.
However, with software activation this is a whole other issue. I have a home computer, a regular laptop, and a smaller travel laptop. I need to be able to download the logs from all three computers. This activation is bothersome, even if it worked. Now, however, the activation doesn't even work properly. It has asked me for activation almost every single time I load the program. Fortunately, so far it has allowed me to re-activate it with the same details. But what do I do when I'm in the field with no internet connection??? What will it say when I try to activate it on another computer?
What is really needed is a separate application to just download the logs, view the GPS time and change the user preferences on the tracker. This application should be usable without activation.
I am going to Africa soon and will be following the great migration. I bought the unit to track this trip, and I DON'T want to be in the position of not being able to download the logs because of some silly activation procedure.
