Built in stand for SpotX
SpotX requires the antenna be upright. Most things like stumps ,tables and other things we would normally set Spot down on to send a message are flat. Standing spot is somewhat of a pain in the butt. I taped a triangle shaped piece of plastic to the back of mine
A U-Shaped clip that wraps the bottom of the unit ang grabs the waist with a spike to stick into the ground could do it.
...&/or info on if upright is mandatory to function or slightly better, ...or more multi-directional antenna to avoid hassle of orienting the device to operate
Yes this. I have Velcro on my SPOTX and windshield.. Also an external antennae please
