SPOT offers peace of mind by allowing you to track your assets, notify friends and family of your GPS position and status, mark waypoints, track your progress on Google Maps™ or notify rescue officials in an emergency.
The SPOT product family offers peace of mind beyond the boundaries of cellular. Whether you want to check-in, make calls or monitor your prized possessions, SPOT uses 100% satellite technology to keep you connected to the people and things that matter most, all while using the world’s most modern satellite network.
SPOT Trace tracks your most valuable assets virtually anywhere in the world, using your phone or computer. Affordable and easy to use, it’s a no-brainer for your cars, boats, motorcycles, toys and other valuables.
SPOT Gen3 provides location-based messaging and emergency notification technology that allows you to communicate from remote locations around the globe. It offers custom tracking interval options, motion-activated tracking, long-life battery and more.
The SPOT product family uses both the GPS satellite network to determine a customer’s location and the Globalstar network of satellites to transmit messages and GPS coordinates to others. SPOT offers several ways to access off-the-grid communication:
Theft-Alerting – Instantly receive a text or email when your most valuable assets move, or follow them on Google Maps™ anytime on your phone or computer. (Available with SPOT Trace.)
- Rescue – In severe emergency situations, users can send emergency SOS notification to GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) using the SOS button or dialing 9-1-1. For less serious situations, reach out to family and friends for assistance using SPOT Help/Assist. (Available for Gen3 and GPS Messenger.)
- Check-In – With a touch of a button, users can let friends and family know everything is going as planned and there is no need for alarm. (Available for SPOT Gen3 and GPS Messenger.)
- Track Progress – Allows the user’s GPS location to be transmitted in real-time via Google Maps™. (Available for SPOT Gen3 and GPS Messenger.)
