  1. Flat bottom on SpotX

    I just want to put in an idea for a small product upgrade. Put a flat bottom on the SpotX since the antenna needs to be straight up, so you can set it on something. With the Bluetooth version, it would be even more useful because you are texting with your phone and don't want to find a place to lean it against. A little clip-on flat bottom for existing ones would be nice as well.

  3. Spot X must accept AA or AAA batteries as an option without use of powerbank.

    Having built-in only rechargeable is not sufficient for and emergency device targeted for outdoors-men and gals crowd.

  4. Enable an EOF character at end of e-mail messages

    Often when people reply to my messages I've sent them from my spotX, their response is too long and doesn't get sent. This is because their e-mail program is appending the original message, etc. Not all the people I message are tech savvy enough to manage this. It would be nice if a person could add an end of file character that would cause the spotx mail server to strip everything beyond that point: <eof> or something.

  5. Impact resistant cover for screen

    Everything in the device is impact resistant, except the screen. In fact, the screen is quite fragile. There should be a flip lid, that opens like a book with hinges on the left to protect the screen.

  6. Trigger webhooks based on geofences

    Use webhooks to trigger external scripts based on geofences like a weather report script that sends the report to my SPOT X mail address or a chat message based on signal/telegram to my friends. Also other services like IFTTT would be very helpful to start external Triggers.

  7. Create a messenger app for smartphones

    Create a messenger app for smartphones (for followers). Its much easier for people to have a smartphone app to send/receive messages to Spot-X devices. And our course track a spot x device.

  11. Topo Maps in SPOT X

    Do you ever plan on including topo maps for better navigation on the SPOT X? I received my SPOT X last week and have been testing it out. I like it a lot, especially the built-in keyboard but the topo maps would help a lot with navigating.

  12. Make it easy to share a map

    It is very hard to find how to share a map. I am defeated! I see others have been as well.

    I agree that the coordinates on an SMS checkin message don't work with Google

  13. Show when fetch mode is off on SPOT X

    Have an icon on screen that shows if fetch is off. Thought fetch was on but it had shut off after a reset because of freezing so I did not receive a message until next day

  14. Make SPOT X Wi-Fi hotspot and ability to forward messages cell phone if device is off

    Please add in the ability to have text messages forward to my cell phone while the Spot X is off. So not only when it is off but all the time if the setting is such in my profile to do so.

    Please add wifi to the spotX device so that i can connect it at home to wifi to send and receive messages.

    Please allow me to send and receive/read messages from a web browser while the spot X is off or not able to get signal. Not only when it is off but all the time via a…

  15. Pause mode on Spot X NEEDS to be a selectable feature that can be turned off. As it is now, you cannot track while kayaking.

    You introduced pause mode while tracking on Spot X recently. And, you forced it on us. While kayaking, since there is no walking vibration, Spot X goes into pause mode within minutes. Rendering tracking while kayaking useless. It is not a feasible solution to suggest that I shake the unit every 15-20 minutes to get it out of pause mode. Make pause mode on tracking with the Spot X an option that can be turned off. I suspect that I'm going to have this same problem long distance biking this summer. PLEASE give me the option to shut pause mode…

  18. SpotX should tone when sending SOS

    When SOS is activated SpotX could make sound. Then if you could not see the device at least you could hear it

  20. Spot X API via USB port

    An API for the SpotX so we can initiate txt messages via the USB port. On our boat we have a small PC on the bridge to send emails, check wx, ect. It would be nice if we could use the USB cable to trigger the SpotX to send a normal text message. If I see correctly, the SpotX already emulates a COM port, so basically we would just need the command added to the unit to construct and send a message. Getting signal strength or the ability to pull msgs from the unit would also just be too cool…
