The latest in the line of SPOT rugged satellite GPS messengers, the SPOT Gen3 keeps you connected even when you’re off-the-grid. Using the power of satellite technology SPOT works virtually anywhere in the world. Check in with your personal and professional networks, send custom messages and let others track your location in real-time via Google Maps. In an emergency, transmit an SOS with your location to GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center.

Spot Gen3 Features:

  • Compact and light weight: Weighing only 3.2 oz. (with batteries), it packs easily for traveling.
  • Long Battery Life: choose from Lithium or rechargeable batteries; or line-power the unit through its USB port.
  • New Tracking Options: now you can choose the rate of tracking that suits your adventure (2 ½, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes).
  • Motion Activated Tracking: now your SPOT knows when you’re moving and when you stop to make camp. When SPOT Gen3 senses you’ve stopped for an extended period of time it will stop sending track messages until you start moving again.
  • New Contoured Shape: the new design allows you to easily attach your SPOT to your bag, boat or vehicle allowing SPOT to go wherever you do.

The SPOT Personal Tracker raised the safety factor for millions who took to the outdoors each year. SPOT notifies friends, family or an international rescue coordination center with your GPS location and status based on situation and need - all with the push of a button.

Some reasons why pilots are excited about SPOT:

  • You're thirty minutes out from your destination, descending from 11,500' and want someone to pick you up at the airport when you land. There's no way to get any get any cell phone service, but SPOT can send an email or SMS text message immediately via satellite.
  • You're planning a trip of a lifetime flying above the Alaskan Highway and deep into Alaska. Your friends and family are both worried and excited about your trip. With SPOT on-board, your exact position can be displayed online, via Google Earth, to anyone you choose. Your friends and family can follow your great journey and feel comfort in knowing exactly where you are at any time.
  • You're on that same trip through Alaska and you have an issue that forces an emergency landing. You make a perfect landing on the shore of a river but now you're in the middle of nowhere. Count on SPOT, its' satellite coverage and built-in GPS receiver, to dispatch emergency responders to your exact location.
  • You run a flight school with ten airplanes and have rental aircraft going in every direction. With a SPOT in each airplane, you can track the real-time position of all of your aircraft, online 24 hours a day

SOS / 911: Use this function In the event of a life threatening or other critical emergency to notify emergency services of your GPS location and that you need assistance.
