  1. We need a better way of labelling (marking) the various function buttons on SPOT gen3

    The function buttons on our SPOT gen3 have all rubbed clean - no labels visible. Fine for my wife who uses it regularly but hopeless for me who uses it only once or so in a blue moon - no idea what button to press to say I'm OK or to track etc etc. Perhaps colour-coded buttons or deeper etching and better inking of the label icons into the surface of each button? (otherwise a brilliant device, thanks!)

  4. 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.

  5. Shorter tracking interval for aviation usage

    For aviation usage (as replacement for Emergency Locator Transmitters) even the Extreme Tracking Interval is too long. With the typical travelling speed of a modern glider of approx. 120 - 180km/h (33 - 50m/s) the distance between two fixes comes to 5 - 7.5km. This is clearly to distant in case the data shall be used for SAR purposes. A tracking intervall of approx. 30 seconds would be great.
    It is clear to me that this service would cost more. I would be gladly prepared to pay for this extra safety gain!

  7. Improve the "Monitor Device Usage" function.

    I wanted to see a history of my device's usage for the last couple of weeks, trying to track a problem, but I could not get such a thing.
    I wanted to know if my device was actually transmitting or not.

  8. 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.

  11. Develop a SPOT app tha could be downloaded onto a smartphone and not have to have the SPOT device

    I would like to see an app for a smartphone that would allow the user to emulate the SPOT device instead of having to purchase and carry the SPOT device.

  12. Leaderboards showing most distance traveled, places visited, etc

    Add leaderboards using different statistics. All of them with option to see in a week, month, year and lifetime:
    - Most distance traveled
    - Most states visited
    - Most continuous days with tracking info recorded

    Probably let this be an opt-in feature, as some customers may not want to participate on the leaderboards

  13. Automatic event driven distribution of messages. (Automated landing message on aircrafts)

    Send automatically a message if the speed drops below defined speed for more than 1 minute. This could be used for automated landing message of aircraft, aircraft logbooks, automatic tracking.

  18. Allow to hide table on left in map view

    I guess not many viewer are interested in the details available for each recorded waypoint. Therefore the table on the left in the map view occupies unnecessary room

  20. Greater coverage area over the Pacific ocean.

    Many sailors are looking for something that will reliably send their current location to friends but the service does not include Hawaii and parts of the South Pacific which are popular cruising destinations.
