  1. Auto delete older messages

    My SpotX seems to take a while to load messages when there is alot in the message thread. Need to be able to set auto delete for 5 or 10 messages

  2. SOS Profiles

    On the Spot2 and the Gen3 we had ten profiles that we could change which included an SOS profile for that profile you had chosen but on the Spot X you can not so if you hike in one area you would have to delete that and re-write the sos message for that hiking area you are in there is loads of information that you could write in for more support to the GEOS team just for that area no are is the same which I had 10 could you make it so that we could highlight that SOS profile…

  4. Functions that need to be on the next device to be comparable to competition

    1. Font size needs to be larger - changeable - Font is super small and difficult to read even with good eyes.
    2. Delivery confirmation of message. It is unknown whether a message got out or not which makes it difficult to know if you are waiting for a response or just waiting.
    3. Nesting of text messages is confusing and should list the phone number / contact name of the thread rather than the text. It becomes confusing to know whether you have read a message or not.
    4. Back light - you need to be able to turn…

  5. font size

    I am returning my device because the font size is too small to read. This is unacceptable for emergency situations.

  6. Make the typing keys more tactile.

    The keys are small and I have to hit them with my fingernail. If they were not so slippery it would be a lot easier.

  7. Manage groups without a PC

    The requirement to use a PC to manage groups (create, edit, delete) is absurd. Hiking the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trail and needing a PC to add rescue or support groups? Sitting in an island anchorage with no power for a PC and needing to add mutul support or float plan groups? Driving to Prudehoe Bay or along Baja California with no power for a PC and no way to manage support and safety groups? This is simply ridiculous.

  8. open google map

    On the My Location page that is visible to people I message (https://www.findmespot.com/mylocation/?id=xj6-x), it would be great if there were an option to open the map in a true Google map, rather than just the map widget. For example, someone would be on the My Location page, click a "View in larger map" link, and a new tab would open to maps.google.com with the location highlighted. They could then get directions, find distance, whatever they need.
    Thanks

  9. User-configurable Main Menu

    Allow user to configure which items are on the main menu. For example, I don't use Social Networks, so that is wasted on me.

    In addition, I would like to delete the on-screen S.O.S.button since the hardware SOS button is all that is needed (and is safety-guarded) and the on-screen SOS button is all-too-easy to activate unintentionally, especially given there is no automatic lock screen.

    Since the main menu is not touch-enabled (but looks like it would be), how about having a simple list of functions on the left, and the right 2/3rds could be a dashboard (current active function,…

  11. SpotX upgrade

    When powering down it sometimes will goto another screen that says active processes and you need to push enter again to shut down. Not a problem if you can see it. But if you are in a dark tent with the backlight on, when you push power off the backlight goes out not allowing you to see if it actually powered off or if it is holding on the active processes screen

  12. Dashboard / Lock Screen

    Create an "at a glance" lock screen that also serves as a screensaver after a configurable timeout of inactivity. This dashboard could show in big easy-to read text current status: Tracking / Paused, New Message Received, Distance to Next Waypoint, SOS Activated, etc.

    Right now the only lock screen is manually activated and just has some fine print describing how to unlock (also the online full user manual describes the lock screen procedure incorrectly, while the screenshot shows it correctly; took me several tries to figure out the screen shot was the correct procedure).

  14. Can it be Pinged

    great question... So if on but not in tracking mode.... Can a web user ping the spot x causing spot to send the location at that time.... Theoretical should be possible as it is two way capable.

  15. The center (enter) part of the 5 way controller needs to be easier to press

    I'm finding the 5 way controller on my new Spot X hard to use correctly, especially the center (Enter) button. Too often when trying to press it, I select one of the four directional arrows instead. It often also feels too stiff, tho that may lessen with use. I have no such troubles on the equally-small 5 way controller on my Nikon One J5 camera.

  16. Add a stepcounter to the SPOT X or any new SPOT as a feature that can be enabled/disabled.

    The SPOT is used by outdoors people it would be nice to have this device include a counter of sorts for those that would like to utilize that feature. It could also be used to measure a step count during a specific trip/adventure.

    planned  ·  S Admin responded

    We plan to release SPOT X in Australia in early 2019.

  20. Send a message if I stop moving

    There's a feature to send a message if the device STARTS moving, but I would like the opposite: if I'm running, fall and am unconscious, I would like the device to sense that I have not moved for a certain amount of time, probably 30-60 minutes, and then send a "I'm not moving" message out.
