have the spotx device be able to track after pushing the button whether it feels movement or not.
I'm having a hard time sending location reliably. I'm using it on a sailboat, it's definitely open to the clear sky with not even canvas over it, but often no location is sent for hours. Quite frustrating!!
Allow the user to disable the suspension. The spot x suspends while sailing even though there is a reasonable amount of swell.
Allow manual adjustment of the accelerometer sensitivity. My recent canoe trip mostly recorded the portages as the Spot X was getting jostled around a fair bit while we carried gear on the trails. If the tracking feature went to pause starting up paddling in the canoe was not enough to wake it back up. If I deliberately shake the Spot X the tracking feature will wake up again but who wants to have to do that all the time? I understand that battery life may suffer if the accelerometer is more sensitive to motion but I'd like my whole trip to show up, not just the walking parts.
I hope you can add a feature on our phones to push a button and force the gps to respond with update location.
My spot x skips updates, up to an hr or two, knowing my car is actually moving from place to place.
