  • Small bug existed between 1:10-1:40PM EST today on the mobile web version for the near me and latest location pages. The times could be offset drastically when attempting to localize it per device. This has been resolved.

  • We've gone a little retro tonight by changing our colors on the website. When heritageunits.com was first built in 2012 these where the original colors of the site.

    We've returned the trending view which is now accessible by clicking on the "trending" view on the home page.

    More changes are on the way... =P

    Brian =)
  • 5/13/2020

  • We've updated the desktop dashboard page. We'll be making further tweaks to this page over the next few days. Couple notes...

    The server will now automatically adjust the reports dates based on your browsers time. This is different from the previously where you had to set the time on your profile (if not in EST). Note that when viewing the report it still works the traditional way. We'll be touching those screens as we prepare for our next major release.

    We've added the open railways map overlays

    There are now radar and cloud overlays that will display on the map. These are dependent upon external servers and sometimes can be delayed in their load times. Please note that this is currently experimental.

    We'll be adding the trending views later to the desktop version.

  • If you're still experiencing issues with the mobile apps please uninstall and reinstall the app (iOS/Android). This will provide a clean installation and should resolve any issues. We've had numerous other users inform us that this was the solution to their problems.

  • For iOS devices that are receiving an API exception. When we migrated to a new server we changed our ip address. Thus you're likely suffering from a dns cache issue. Usually your device will resolve the issue automatically.

    This is can be resolved immediately by flushing your dns cache on the device. Follow the link below for instructions.

  • 2/3/2020

  • Today we experienced a total server hardware failure around 11:30AM EST. Due to the severity of the failure we had to migrate HeritageUnits.com to a completely new server and restore a backup from 12AM last night. Thus any new reports, new accounts, or photos submitted between 12AM-11:30AM EST where lost.

    We apologize for the inconvenience but please understand this was outside of our control. No one likes to migrate servers under these circumstances. The new server came online around 1:50PM EST today.

    Please note there might be small 5 minute outages as we tweak the new server throughout the day. We don't expect many of these but wanted to provide a heads up.
