Note on Shared Pages and SPOTadventures:

If you have created your free profile at, you will notice that under your profile view, there is a location for a Live Map. Live Maps are based on your shared pages. Whatever shared pages you have created, they will appear in your Live Map feeds as different tabs.

Therefore, if you want to take advantage of the Live map features in, you will need to create shared pages in your account.

In your profile, you can click on edit profile and there is an option to hide any Live Feed Map that you may have. Another option, if you have multiple Live Map Feeds appearing under your Feed Names in your profile, is to set a certain one as the default view.
