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
Our newly enhanced mapping platform now allows users to place more than 50 points on a map. You can see these upgrades through the Maps tab on your SPOT My Account page.
Almost worthless to me but I am old with a visual disability. Cannot send “ I am ok” with decent location pic or map!
The worst part for people that I want to follow me on the map is this. They have a hard time following me. Additionally zooming and panning on this map is finicky and slow.
totally agree .. the way it works now makes no sense .. who just wants to see a tiny portion a week long track at a time ?
25 points on a map is insufficient to visualize long trips. The export feature also only allows those 25 points to be exported, this too must be increased.
as well as having longer storage, I have track points from the arctic circle in the Northwestern territory's to the coast of Nova Scotia, And would like to be able to view them all on one map. i can do so on my phone, but cant download or transfer any of the points. Rather unhelpful
Agreed - the web map interface could use a refresh / rearchitect. "We have the technology!' Let's put it to use. I need less of a paging list of waypoints and more of an interactive map showing my progress. Use dots and connecting lines/curves instead of those big icons that just make a big cluttered mess. Find another way to group sets of waypoints. A significant gap in tracking likely indicates separate trips, for example.
The waypoints available to plot on a map should be limited only to the life of the service contract of the user.

Yes Great Idea just a simple set to see all waypoints on one page a pain for each page very hard to track I give up on it
On the website, I see my home state then have to zoom in too much. Bring the standard page in a few clicks.
Yes! An entire trip on same map page is definitely needed.

… and if a journey is over, the last x waypoints should be shown (with date / time). This would be much better than showing a black screen with the useless information that no points can be shown.

Yes, PLEASE! This is one of my biggest beefs with the system. Why the arbitrary number of points per page? It makes no sense. More sensible, if you need to split it up, is to do it by calendar date. Even better, allow the viewer to choose the timeframe to see on a single map.
