What's New in Version 1.0.8
Not good at all.
This app is just as bad as the website that spot has created to locate the gps sensor. Poor design, icons are something a child would draw. The menu or options you have are very limited. When you set a filter it does not work. It has an area to set times although it does not work. I am paying for the extreme tracking which is 200 bucks a year and I should be getting updates on my device every 2.5 mins but that is not always the case, sometimes it's 10 mins. I moved my device and I got 20 miles down the road till I got an alert. 29 miles! 18 mins later I got the alert! Don't know if this was an app issue or a system issue. Nevertheless this app is horrible and so is the extreme tracking service. Wondering if I can get back my money. 10 years ago I went with a different company, the website was waaaay better than this app and that was 10 years ago! hummm maybe they are still around.
Kicking myself for this purchase and free download.
We installed the app last year and loved that we would get notices when the asset moved. Last month the notices stopped although we are still connected and the messages within the app are current. I can't locate a fix. Messages are not generated for some of the categories.
I will delete this app as soon as I finish writing this review. Didn't think the app could be more useless than their website, but it is. SPOT must use the same person to create their app and their website. From the looks of the other reviews, other people feel the same. I hope that if I ever need to be rescued that their emergency service is better than their tech support.
