  1. Monthly Flex Plans for non SPOT X devices

    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!

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  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.

  9. Improve profile set-up by having selectable, saved contact details

    Allow saved contact details so when modifying profiles contacts can be selected instead on continually adding emails and mobile phone numbers manually for each person. Also allow all contacts to be the same for each message as default so manual entry is not required continually.

  10. Website & App

    Your website and app are super clunky. You would sell more products if your website and apps didn't look and function like they were from the 1990's.

    If you'd like help. I work for a company that can handle those exact needs. Raizlabs in Oakland California.

    Thank you!

  11. An audible signal

    An audible signal that confirms when satellite link has occurred and a 'check in' or more importantly a SOS has happened successfully.

    Don't rely on seeing if the LED's are still blinking or not.

  12. Connector change so it is easier to attach a battery pack for long tracking sessions. Cable sticks out and is hard to protect.

  14. Allow for multiple days tracked to appear on one map.

    Wouldn't it be great to show multiple days of hiking or riding to show on one map.

  15. I'd like to see smaller SPOT devices.

    My SPOT Gen3 is ultra big and ultra heavy. I'd like to see a smaller device. Maybe a device with less protective rubber (I safely attach it to my rucksack, so it won't be damaged), or with removable protection.

  16. SEND SPOT TEXT MESSAGES WITH A LINK

    It would be most helpful when a text message is sent via SPOT if the geographic coordinates were sent as an internet link. As it is now the text message comes through with numbers that have to be cut and pasted in google in order to see where the message was sent from.

  17. Use GLONASS signals for better positions

    I use SPOT Gen3 in Europe for hiking and the GPS satellites are often too few. Why don't you intergrate GLONASS into your system? It would double the number of usable satellites!

  18. 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.
