When your adventure takes you beyond mobile phone service, SPOT Gen3 uses satellite tracking to let family and friends know you’re safe. Should the worse happen SPOT Gen3 will send emergency responders your GPS, all at the push of a button, offering peace of mind when mobile signal is no longer an option.
SOS – In an emergency, transmit an SOS with your exact location to GEOS emergency response Coordination Centre to activate a rescue.
Check in – Let family and friends know you’re ok when you’re out of mobile phone range. Send a pre-programmed text message with GPS coordinates or an email with a link to Google Maps™ to your contacts with your location. With a push of a button, a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 pre-determined contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account.
Help/SPOT Assist – Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. Or use SPOT Assist for professional services on land or water (Additional service required)
CUSTOM MESSAGE – Stay in touch while off the grid by sending your custom message. Set up a message before leaving to send to contacts with your GPS location. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT S.O.V. service on your Help button.
Motion Activated Tracking – A Vibration sensor tells SPOT to send your GPS location when you are moving and to stop when you do. This conserves battery power and avoids sending duplicate tracks.
