  3. Alert me if a device moves in certain times of the day

    I want to be able to get an alert if my device moves between 8pm and 6am, for example. As no one should be driving my trailer at this time of the day.

  4. Old spot

    Bring back the old spot. The new SPOT X is very difficult to use and is unnecessarily complicated.

  5. SpotX upgrade

    When powering down it sometimes will goto another screen that says active processes and you need to push enter again to shut down. Not a problem if you can see it. But if you are in a dark tent with the backlight on, when you push power off the backlight goes out not allowing you to see if it actually powered off or if it is holding on the active processes screen

  6. Automatically update your SPOT X downloader.

    I'm so tired of running my copy of the downloader, connecting, and being told I have to manually download a new version because mine is out of date. This happens not on occasion but all the time. Please download a new version and install it automatically.

  7. User-configurable Main Menu

    Allow user to configure which items are on the main menu. For example, I don't use Social Networks, so that is wasted on me.

    In addition, I would like to delete the on-screen S.O.S.button since the hardware SOS button is all that is needed (and is safety-guarded) and the on-screen SOS button is all-too-easy to activate unintentionally, especially given there is no automatic lock screen.

    Since the main menu is not touch-enabled (but looks like it would be), how about having a simple list of functions on the left, and the right 2/3rds could be a dashboard (current active function,…

  9. Provide a way to recycle your old SPOT for people that need them, like a women's shelter

    There are probable people that could benefit from having a spot if they got in a dangerous situation, but couldn't use their phone, like someone staying at women's shelter

  10. Can it be Pinged

    great question... So if on but not in tracking mode.... Can a web user ping the spot x causing spot to send the location at that time.... Theoretical should be possible as it is two way capable.

  11. 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!

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

  15. Bluetooth in Gen3

    I love my Connect but what if my phone dies or malfunctions on a trip. I would be limited to only SOS. Would be nice to have the other functions available

  18. Multiple contacts in messages threads

    When choosing a previous message thread to send another message if there was more than one person in the original message it will only select one recipient. It should send to the same group of recipients

  19. Allow for Multiple Preset Messages

    Allow the custom and check in buttons to send more than one per-drafted message. Press check in for message one (I’m ok) Double press check in for message two (Going to sleep). This would allow for 4 total messages to better communicate. You could even make it a button combination like hold down power and check in for four five seconds for message preset two etc
