could you add gps accuracy (e.g. 10.5 meters) to the Dashboard? just below satellite information
Two suggestions from me:
1. Watchlist in Android app - add desired device to the watchlist to get the notification when it's in scanning range.
2. Watchlist in web app - add desired device to the watchlist to get the notification when someone uploads new scan results including that device.

A few weeks ago, I heard of "Google Sidewalk", a new ability that allows devices like "Echo" to provide a bit of Internet access for everyone within 'hearing' of the device. But, a little searching and I cannot find references to how people are supposed to actually use that Internet.
We should be able to use that Internet access for accessing map data, right? Or, for uploading wardriving results data.
But, I haven't figured out how this 'works'. What must we, as Android Smartphone users, actually do to enable this communication?

"Amazon is planning to automatically enroll owners of its devices in a program that would share a slice of their internet connection with neighbors.
Amazon confirmed in an email to USA TODAY that the program will launch on eligible Echo devices starting June 8.
Amazon Sidewalk is a low-bandwidth shared network the tech giant says will not only allow your devices to work better, but help locate lost items.
The network shares "a small portion of your internet bandwidth which is pooled together to provide these services to you and your neighbors," reads a description on Amazon's website. "And when more neighbors participate, the network becomes even stronger," it claims.

Amazon says its Sidewalk feature has multiple layers of privacy and security to protect personal information, but users will have the option to turn off Sidewalk if they decide not to participate.
Ring owners with an eligible device can opt out by visiting the control center in the Ring app or Ring website. Customers who own an eligible Echo device can make changes in Settings in the Alexa app.
Amazon says customers who purchase an eligible Echo device for the first time will have the chance to disable Sidewalk during the setup process.

Sidewalk isn't public WiFi, it's an alternate wireless network to let devices talk to your Amazon devices as a gateway.

It would be interesting to add detection of active Sidewalk devices in a stumbling rig, though I'm not sure if the protocols would allow for the right info capture...

Okay, I still wonder how we go about actually using Sidewalk. Is it somehow automatic?
And, if it can be stumbled, how long until the WIGLE software is capable of doing that?
