  2. Old mapping tracks were numbered PLEASE bring this back

    My wife finds the new map useless when trying to find my current location. Simply add numbers to the track like it was :)

  4. Use up to date images for SPOT mapping platform

    I would like to see SPOT's new mapping application using reasonably up to date images. The image for the area where I keep my boat is at least 10 years out of date and shows the boat buried in inaccessible mangrove!. Current Google Earth imagery of the same location is dated 8/30/2019. The boatyard clearly shown on the Google Earth image was built and the whole area developed around 2010. Inexcusable!

  5. Increase readability of route on the map

    Increase readability of the route on the map


    • by allowing to hide events when zoomed out, but still keep all the vertices on the lines, so that the route itself always is as detailed as possible but not showing overlapping event symbols.


    • allow for filtering of events (ie do not show tracking events) but still show the lines as detailed as possible with all vertices.


    • the line between events must indicate the direction of time/movement by adding an arrow in the middle of each line. Some users suggest using numbering on the events, I believe using arrows gives a better…

  7. Fire 'effective managers'. Make "export data" easily accessible.

    Make 'export csv' option instead of Excel format. If you want to preserve Exel format, then make columns for Lat and Long separate, not lumped with comma separation within one cell. These data are not digestable for other software.
    Add export as shape file and preserve time format.
    Data in 'Activity report' are in reverse chronological order, whereas in the 'exported' to Excel form the chronology is normal. Make it consistent.
    In kml export instead of <name> as the 'Asset name' use time stamp. In this case, in critical situation, the chronology would be visible without individual clicks.
    Send 'effective…

  8. Integrate with SarTopo mapping

    When tracking or otherwise I would like my Spot Gen3 to send my tracking location updates to my SarTopo map as a Locator.

  9. 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.

  10. Map lines should indicate direction

    Map presentation of message history should indicate direction when lines are draw between points. This will ease the understanding of the route taken.

  11. Fade grouped historic positions by time

    'Fade historic positions' and 'Group positions' are two wonderful options, by themselves, but attempting to use the two together doesn't work until you zoom in enough to split up a group. If locations are grouped, the group icon should be faded according to the most recent time in that group, so if the whole group is years old, it is a faded group icon, but if something in the group was within the last hour, it's a solid group icon.

  12. Include history 'tail' in live view

    You currently have the option to either watch Live view, with just single points, but no need to refresh, or history view, with lots of points and lines, but you have to manually refresh to see new ones.

    Can you add an option to Live view to have a 'tail' of an adjustable number of points/time? For example, I want live view, along with the last hour of data for context which direction someone is traveling...that sort of thing.

  13. Add to list of position format options to include Irish Grid

    It's a relatively simply formula to convert Lat/Long coordinates into Irish grid positions. But currently I have to copy and paste SPOT reported Lat/Long position int a separate conversion app to get an Ordnance Survey map location.

  16. Simplify

    Mapping is complicated and frustrating. Neither I, nor my viewers, want to spend hours trying to figure out how to use your new platform. Simplify things. The shared page should have some VERY SHORT instruction as to how to view things. The average viewer will likely give up trying to see where the asset is on a given day. Will likely not renew my subscription ( had it for nearly 10 yrs).

  17. Do not hide export types, already difficult enough to find anything...

    Thanks for adding an export feature for map data...it was by luck I found it. Instead of it being in a submenu under a submenu under a submenu, place it on the results bar. A button for each: KML, GPX, PDF, Excel...simple but effective....

  18. Merge Spot contacts + waypoints with new Spot Maps

    Merge/Sync Spot contacs + waypoints in the devices settings with new Spot Maps contacts and places. Acutally i have to maintain the same contacts and waypoints twice.
    The waypoint creation in the device settings screen is horrorable bad!!

  19. Routes showing timeline

    I want is to see the route in a timely fashion. The new system has only dots connected which gives you a big spider net but in the old system the dots were numbered so you could follow the directions easily.
