Settings? We've heard of them.

Looking at the Google Play Android page I saw "Thanks for your interest! While the app is a bit of an expert tool, maybe the forums at https://wigle.net can provide some insight!

Re: Detecting Gas Pump Skimmers by Bluetooth signature (Bluetana / SkimPlus)

I would expect that the Wigle app could be modified to provide an alert when a specific ID is found but the problem is that Wigle can then be used for hunting.

Re: wow...everybody buying online ?

"can I run a smartphone WITHOUT cellphone ability?"
Yes, you can use an old phone with a SIM card but you don't need a phone number/account, all you need is a functioning GPS on the phone and then you can upload via WiFi when you get home.

Re: Querying for exact match SSID name

I wonder if there might be a market for an app that simply records the last 48 hours of nearby wireless devices (particularly BT devices) with the option to search for them in the database and display some statistics or send an alert is a specific ID appeared.

Re: New WiGLE map´s uploaded to Wikimedia? (current ones are from 2007)

I did a quick edit to remove the logos if this helps - the file appears to be too big to upload here so I've posted it on pixeldrain - it will be available for 100 days.

Cell phone coverage maps?

There's an interesting story (link below) about the state of Vermont checking the phone company claims for cell phone coverage and finding that they are very misleading - it is possible that Wigle could be used to guide a project like this? http://digital.vpr.net/post/state-official-went-roaming-aro...

Re: User Statistics not displaying correctly on Android Pie?

The dashboard would show a nets scanned count on the drive into work but when I turned ...
