  1. Internal battery, that is wall rechargeable.

    As a backpacker every ounce counts so extra batteries for me are a down fall for this satellite messenger. I’d like to see an internal battery with an external charging port that I could recharge with battery bank or solar panel.

  3. Issue a Detailed Payment Receipt

    Love the product, love the service! Keep it up!. However, PLEASE issue a more detailed payment receipt. Every time I submit this as a work expense, I get it sent back as there are so few details. Accounting is not my bailey wick, but I don't have this problem with any other receipts! At some point it is going to get rejected and we will be forced to switch to anther provider.

  4. Integrate with Google Maps App

    when you send a GPS coordinate to someone, the link it brings them to does not have any options to open it in google maps. so that they can't navigate to it.

    it should just send them to a Google maps link instead of a Spot landing page with a google map inside of it. makes it too hard for someone to launch those coordinates in google/apple maps and start navigating

  5. Re new map presentation

    First off, GREAT WORK - much improved. Two minor suggestions:

    The display should open with the options in the upper right-hand corner minimized. The way it is now, they cover most of the screen on a smartphone, and not all users are sophisticated enough to figure out how to turn them off.

    Also, the map should show a scale at all times.

  6. Make the elevation feature functional on SPOT X

    My SpotX device seems to give the correct long. and lat. coordinates, but it doesn't come even close on the elevation. This past week I was in some mountains between 4000' and 6000'+, and the elevation was shown as between 455.0 ft and 505.0 ft. Units were set to feet.

  7. Don't use the word ASSETS to refer to Spot Devices

    In your menus and instructions please refer to the Spot units as "devices" and not "assets." I feel the word "asset" in this situation is an vague pretentious buzz word.

    It will confuse a lot of people.

    Do you refer to your cell phone as an asset? Do you call your smart home devices assets? Of course not.

  8. Make SOS Messages Customizable

    1.) Like the other message types the SOS Message type should be customizable too:
    - email distribution list
    - additional message text

    2.) the SOS message should be included in the api. All message types should be included in the api.

  9. Better handling of battery replacement for SPOT Gen4

    Handling of battery replacement is really a mess with Spot Gen4 - really a change to the worse with regard to Gen3:
    - now 4 screws, not 2
    - now standard screws!! no curl thumb or thumb bracket
    - now the retaining strap has to be dig out of the back cover before You can remove the cover of the battery housing

  10. Track Erasing

    The new format is quite interesting.
    However the steps required to erase all previous tracks is similar to the count down for a space launch.
    Waaaaayyyyy too complicated to get to the page!!!!!!!!!!
    I had to phone tech support to get the answer and that took a 10 minute tutorial.
    Come on folks,get this fixed!!!!

  11. Like to see the Ok! and the custom messages when sent out to read in UTM Cords it defaults to Lon and Lat

    When you send out an I'm OK! or a Custom message and you ask to send cords and Altimeter or just I'm OK the Cords default to Longitude and Latitude this needs to change to set up in UTM(Metric) that all hikers use easy to read and fast the Longitude and Latitude are good if you on a Boat! You can set it up and Mapping, but like it on Custom so when send to a friend and read it faster and the Search and rescue use UTM let's get this done! Be the first!!!

  13. Timestamp incoming messages with the time they were originally sent, not when received.

    The timestamp on an incoming message should be the time it was sent, like with e-mail. Currently the timestamp is the time received, which is useless information. A message like "see you in 2 hours" is meaningless on a device that fetches messages at long intervals, unless we know what time it was sent. You have the information in the header of the original text or email. Use that instead of replacing it on the Spot.

  14. Bring back non-prohibitive price points.

    Got my spotX a year or two ago, and I'm not a frequent enough user to get a subscription. Just went to activate on the monthly plan for a TRT thru hike and see that there's now an annual flex fee IN ADDITION to the activation fee IN ADDITION to the monthly fee? I understand you need to make money, but this pricing structure has scam written all over it. And it's more than a little maddening, as the SOS feature could literally save someone's life, and you're making it less and less accessible financially. Bon Voyage, Spot. I'm going…

  16. Send invoice attached as PDF

    Please rather send the invoice as a pdf attached to the email than making me log in and searching for my invoice and then having to download it. The world is moving pretty fast..keep up.

  17. Map Tools

    The black tool bar on the left side of the tracking screen need to have the side bar (up and down) visible - black on black (stupid) make using the slide a guessing game.

  19. The international date format defined by ISO (ISO 8601) is YYYY-MM-DD.

    Current version of this international standard is more than 15 years old. About time to wake up?
    The current (American) date format is only good for USA.

  20. I think this new format sucks.

    You took a great simple program that anyone can use and complicated the **** out it. Give us the option to go back to the old format.
