Missing a few glaringly obvious features like - displaying the app user's current location on map. (And distance from spot) - link to view the spot location in Google maps / navigate to them - use Google cloud push to update locations rather than polling, to save battery and bandwidth Otherwise, the basic functionality it does have works fairly reliably
Doesn't do much I was really hoping I could manage profiles from the app but after installing it appears all it can do is show recent messages from my spot. No use to me at all. Spot really needs to either add more functionality to the app or create a mobile friendly web interface.
Useless The app does nothing. I uninstalled it comma reinstalled it. I logged out and back in again. It will not locate my GPS unit no matter what. All it does is show me a map of North America. The search button does nothing. The globe icon does nothing. The refresh button does nothing. It's completely useless. I have to go to the website and locate my device. That works flawlessly.
Was hoping for more functionality. I don't really need to know where I am. Would love to be able to change/update profiles and messages from the app since I have different profiles for hiking, backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, day hikes, etc. Would like to be able to update the Additional Info in the SOS section to give specifics about my activities for the day/trip.
It's there, but doesn't do anything useful Like others have said, it needs the ability to do something other than see your tracks... such as switching profiles. Right now, all it really does is letting Marketing legally advertise "we offer an app, too!" But it's not a value-add.
Shows dots where Spot gps pinged the satellite but doesn't connect them in a line so its impossible to tell the route someone is taking. Just a bunch of unconnected dots. I gave feedback to Spot about this over a year ago. The last update to this app was Jan 2016- that pretty much says it all.
Fix for default languages.
