    • 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.

        • Design so that the GPS could work in a house so could be used as a health alert

          Develop the system for the GPS to work within a house so that it could be used as a health alert when at home alone.

          • reset

            Re; ESN: 0-8259350, etc. Unbeknownst to us, our 5 devices were reset. This included the device names and the profile associated with each device. All devices were set to my profile, including those not assigned to me. All devices are under contract with the US Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Albany, CA

            • Combination of SPOT functionality with PLB/ELT functionality for aviation usage

              It would be great to have a device which combines the SPOT funtionality with a PLB/ELT funtionality for aviation. This would mean the addition of g-sensors to the device and the ability to emit the 121.5/406MHz Emergency Signal.
              Since some countries still demand the use of PLB/ELT devices (e.g. Austria) this would be a real benefit to have only the SPOT device on board with both functionalities.

                • Community events with badges and other rewards

                  Create community events promoting people to use their device using a pre-defined criteria. For example:
                  - Send a message from a certain location. E.g: Send a message Mt Rushmore National memorial on July 4th
                  - Travel from travel from point A to B. E.g.: when there is a race, like Marathon de Sables, this would automatically give a badge to the ones that participated.

                  Also let your customers create these community events.

                  Rewards could be in form of discounts on renewal or free days on SPOT On Demand. These could be in form of drawing between the ones that completed…

                  • 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"

                      • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  also maybe an option to edit & save the email addresses within the share page

                                  • OVerlay of Distance in the map shown on SPOT account

                                    think the spot gen3 is lacking a basic function which is telling you your distance travelled . I want to know what distance I went and not carry another device during backpacking trips. Why is this most basic thing not available as part of this device?

                                      • SPOT map would smartly draw lines between Start/End of trips. Manual drawing of tracks also.

                                        Developing a way to enable a trace to be drawn between location points? Both in the app and the SPOT account. A trail between waypoints would make the app/site far more user friendly. Allow for automated lines as well as manual drawing in case trips last over days and the map decides it is not only one trip.

                                        • Prepay for services

                                          Prepay for services without having to contact the care center. I am going off the grid for an extended period of time and my renewal will occur during the same time. i will not experience disconnection due ot credit card failure with a prepay option.
