  1. Offer short-term subscriptions outside of United States

    SPOT should offer the option of a subscription that lasts for one month only.

    Many users don't use their devices regularly and therefore are disadvantages by subscriptions that last for one whole year at a time.

    • Allow me to test SOS and Help buttons

      I would feel more comfortable with my device if I could test SOS and Help buttons before my trip.
      You could implement a "test mode" feature where I can press SOS and Help buttons and the messages are only visible in my account, but not sent to NSD or GEOS.

        We are working with our SOS partners GEOS and our software developers to provide this feature to our customers. Please check back for future updates on this project.

      • Longer Data Storage

        I would like to see SPOT save the history of a customer's trip inside the account for the life of the account.
        Strava (iPhone) for example retains all you have done and it offers summaries"

          • A user friendly MyAccount

            The Findmespot website is difficult to use. I use the website only a few times a year and struggle to find the where I need to go to make changes or find out what I need to find out.

            It's by far the worst website to navigate of the many I use.

            • Allow more then just the last 50 wp on map

              If a viewer wants to follow a recorded track he must work through each page with 50 points. It would be great if the whole or at least a larger part of a journey could be seen on the map at once

              • Allow firmware update over the air

                I only use smartphones and tablets, so I cannot download the firmware updater to update my device. I always need to do this using someone else's computer.
                Allowing device firmware to be updated over the air would be great.

                    • Improve message reliability

                      I send "I'm OK" messages every hour when I ride my mountain bike. Sometimes the messages don't arrive. In the next model (I have a Gen3) I would like to see an improvement in the percentage of messages that get sent properly.

                      • Send us an acknowledgement emails when you charge our credit card along with amount

                        You charged my credit card for this year's bill, but never sent anything letting me know that you did so.
                        I know that you sent an email telling me 2 months before that you will be charging.

                            • Gen3 design advances, Subscription Pricing

                              1) Increase output from current 0.4w to at least match the inReach 1.6w signal output. It currently works poorly under forest canopy, and a more powerful wattage output can only improve on that weak design feature. The consequent increase in physical size of unit is an acceptable trade-off.
                              2) Re-orient the antenna to better maximize signal output while hanging the Gen3 upright from a work vest lanyard.
                              3) Keep the annual subscriptions at a lower price point, because inReach is looking ever more tempting, as your prices rise for this-and -that.

                              • Stop requiring an active credit card for service already paid for

                                Stop requiring an active credit card for service already paid for. Your billing practices are one of the most common complaints on Amazon. Once you receive payment, you should NOT hold the account ******* over an active credit card. You appear very dishonest.

                                • This feedback page should NOT be ordered by which items have the most votes. This creates a feedback loop for the top issues.

                                  This feedback will be entirely invalid because people will tend to vote for the first items they see and not make it through all the pages of ideas.

                                  • Monthly Flex Plans for SPOT GEN3

                                    Important enough to generate another comment. I love your product, and even though I was on hold for 40 minute until customer service picked up they were extremely pleasant (talked to billing rep as well), but the annual cost for me is excruciating painful given I only hike a couple times a year if I am lucky. Please give us the same option you have provided to GEN X. Thank you!

                                      • Have the ability to turn off the movement detection feature.

                                        In the case of paragliders who can potentially crash, the tracking would stop after 5 minutes of no movement. It would be nice to have the ability to toggle this option on or off. IF off then the device would track continuously until turned off.

                                        • Reduced fees for Veterans (Canadian and American).

                                          A reduced fee for those who are serving or have served in the military would be a nice touch. Perhaps also add first responders.
