  1. Offer more grid system options

    This system would be very useful for the military if it used the MGRS system as an option for location. LAT/LON is not as common for ground forces, and is generally not taught.

  3. SPOT App necessary updates

    The SPOT app does some things good, but it has plenty of opportunity for improvement. The following "bad" are things to fix:

    Bad - Can only access one spot account. So if you have multiple loved ones who carry SPOT and have different accounts, this app can only show one of them at a time. And reconfiguring for another account is work.

    Bad - Doesn't highlight the latest track/OK point. If the latest point blinked, then you could easily tell where the person was without having to zoom in and read the time-stamp on each message.

    Bad - Only works…

  5. Reduced fees for Veterans (Canadian and American).

    A reduced fee for those who are serving or have served in the military would be a nice touch. Perhaps also add first responders.

  6. Multiple contacts in messages threads

    When choosing a previous message thread to send another message if there was more than one person in the original message it will only select one recipient. It should send to the same group of recipients

  7. SEND SPOT TEXT MESSAGES WITH A LINK

    It would be most helpful when a text message is sent via SPOT if the geographic coordinates were sent as an internet link. As it is now the text message comes through with numbers that have to be cut and pasted in google in order to see where the message was sent from.

  8. Problem to change the account.

    My idea is a problem that I have.
    I have the basic account, and I try to upgrade to the account where it sends a signal each 5/10 minuts from my device, but I don´t find the option in the web side where I can upgrade my account.
    I don´t think that your page is istuitive to do it. :(
    How can I do it?

  12. My Locations - Map - Improve display and filters

    I have never experienced a worse user interface. I'm trying to use this data for a world record certification and it's impossible to set the times on the map. I've tried using Chrome and Firefox. When I try and set dates and times for the filter, I can set the date but not the times. The boxes appear but you can't put data in them to change the time. I've got to be honest, this is terrible.

  13. Wireless firmware update

    I just paid for a SPOT X, then paid for activation , and for a service plan, and for GEOS … and cannot use my device because my computer’s OS is too old to manage the firmware updatefile. So I need to buy a new computer, or find a friend.
    Surely any device that can communicate by satellite can be tweaked to support wireless firmware update?

  17. feedback on spot x

    recently completed a 8 day backcountry ultra endurance race. My spot x was set on 30 min tracking. I started out with it inside a phone bag for extra protection but they told me that it wasn't transmitting so I removed it from the bag and it began working fine. the problems I had were: 1. battery only lasted about 3 days and I had to charge it up twice during the event (luckily I had capacity for this) 2. the charging usb cover is very cheaply attached and would come open during the course of the day forcing me…

  18. Link to Google maps on messages sent to phone

    When messages are sent to email if you open the second link on your phone. It opens Google maps which will show where you are in relation to the pin sent from Spot. Would be great to have this link sent to phone recipients.

  19. Need a way to set and view device options on the web

    I purchased my Sat-Fi2 through a reseller. I found out during a support call that my device is registered as belonging to the reseller. Because of this I am unable to log in to the website and check my usage or configure device options. Will this feature be made available for those of us who purchased through a reseller?

  20. Improvement on background map quality

    The background map used in message presentation is very inaccurate in the Nordic countries countryside. It should be possible to choose from different map sources with the same projection, like Openstreet, Esri maps.
    To get a good view of a route from ie tracking, you must today first export a set of messages to a .gpx file and import the file into another mapping solution (like Esri ArcGIS online or Garmin Basecamp). This is tedious and should not be necessary.
    Messages should also be stored indefinitely.
