How to Set Custom Locations in Swackett 5 Series Apps for macOS

Swackett apps for macOS support up to 15 custom locations.  We’ve recently upgraded Custom Locations to make configuring them a simple, 3-step process. 🙂

Swackett comes preloaded with 10 locations from around the world. You can replace any of these by typing in a new city name and tapping the Done button. This will save your new location.

To activate the new location, simply open the Locations Shortcut panel (Step 02 above) and tap the city name.

Want More Control? You’ve Got It!

Tap the Validate GSP Coordinates button to view and refine your custom location to within 365 feet of where you are standing.

Known Issue: Processing Complex GPS Codes

Please do not include the degree symbol (°) in custom locations.

Please do not include N, S, W or E direction designators in custom locations.

And if in the western hemisphere, please include the dash () for latitude coordinates.

For example, Denver has an GPS coordinate of:

39.7392° N, 104.9903° W

But should be entered in the Personalization Center as:

Latitude: 39.7392

Longitude: -104.9903

This work-around will get you up and running while we address this problem on our servers.

This issue has been resolved.
