Keep SPOT devices simple
I need none of your new features. I have been a Spot user for over ten years and purchased it to provide a means of sending messages via satellite when in the remote back country with out any other means of communicating. So far 100 % of my messages are “OK” messages but the comfort of having Spot is in its emergency option. Keep it simple and for its original intended purpose; not another “social media” experience.
I've used SPOT since around 2012 and have loved it. The new system is an improvement in cosmetic ways only...it doesn't make it any better for those following the user on the shared page. What concerns me is that this new system, in spite of not being more user-friendly, is likely to see a subscription price increase to pay for it. It may be time to investigate other tracking systems available to the public?
