SPOT Gen3 is the great new GPS satellite tracker and messenger which works where mobiles can’t reach, providing you with a critical, life-saving line of communication using 100% satellite technology.
When your adventures take you beyond cell service, the SPOT Gen3, a personal GPS tracking device that everyone venturing outdoors can carry, uses satellite tracking to let family and friends know you’re safe and sound. If the worst happens, SPOT Gen3 will send emergency responders to your GPS at the push of a button.
Most trackers using mobile phone technology cannot help you when you lose the mobile signal – something which can happen quite frequently in the hills and valleys, woods or even in open countryside.
There are several features which come as standard and various extras through subscription.
Basic Features with your Gen3 (when combined with Basic Service & Tracking subscription)
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).
Motion Activated Tracking – A vibration sensor tells SPOT to send your GPS location when you are moving and to stop when you also stop. This conserves battery power and avoids sending duplicate tracks.
SPOT service 12 month subscription is required to activate all SPOT devices
