Good start but no obvious use for this app? Two for trying, does what it says... But is useless. A spot owner, like me, wants to change profiles quickly without battling a heavily script based website on a bad link at the edge of data coverage, and then uses the spot out of coverage, so nothing useful there. Family and followers need a simple app to track a spot in a public or shared-link way, but this app can't work without an owner's private login info. Please could it just do what the website does in a mobile UI, with much less roundtrip data.

Good start I also think this is a good start to an app that has great potential. I like to be able to at least change profiles, and possibly edit the profile settings from this app. If you can do that well I'll be impressed. I look forward to the update.

Pretty pointless I was excited to see there was a Spot app, but it doesn't have any feature I expected. I expected/hoped it would let me (the Spot device owner) to change settings and messages, and possibly let family/friends track me. It only lets me track myself... I don't see the point.

Feedback form does not work Could you make the number of trail markers optional. It would be better if we could see just the last 5 markers as the map just gets covered in dots especially when used in a fleet situation. And a conecting line to show sequence would be nice.

Needs to be able to change profiles and settings. Otherwise it's pointless.
