Can you put the Spot Connect in Track Progress mode and then turn off the phone? Will the Spot Connect continue to send location information once the phone is turned off?

Yes, in fact this is a great idea to help you save battery life on your phone. Once you have successfully engaged a SPOT Message mode on the smartphone, the phone can be turned off and the messages will still continue to transmit from their message cycle on the SPOT Connect device.
