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.
The app is basic and flaky
I purchased the SPOT Trace a week ago and put it on my boat. I was getting email alerts frequently because I didn't enable dock mode since I haven't wired this into power on the boat and didn't want to kill the batteries. I was ok with some false positives to know the device was in the right place.
A week after installing the device I got one alert in the morning then nothing after that. I had gone and taken the boat out and expected I'd receive tracking alerts via text/email. Nothing came in. I relocated the boat and still nothing after sitting. I went to the marina and the device was powered on. I cycled power and went home. One alert came in. I then opened the app and low and behold the alerts showed. The map however was a huge mess of points as opposed to just the location of the alert.
The app and the service need work. Example, I expected to be able to set mobile alerts and couldn't find the setting figuring it'd be one global setting. Nope, you have to add your mobile to EACH TYPE OF ALERT YOU WANT.
Seriously disappointed in the device and the service. I need reliable notifications or this is useless to me.
App and website are unnavigable and confusing
I am a software developer for both the web and iOS. This app and it’s accompanying website are example of when you have engineers designing products rather than DESIGNERS designing products. I want to do a simple thing: Have the GPS spot device update its location every X amount of minutes. There is no clear way to do this on either the web platform or the iOS app. I feel like my quite expensive monthly subscription has been fleeced from my wallet while three months later I am still unable to complete any of these tasks.
Guys, hire a designer. If you already have one, fire them and hire someone better.
