Basic Features included with your SPOT Gen3:

S.O.S. : With the push of a button, GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center provides your GPS coordinates and information to local response teams. The S.O.S button is for emergencies only.

Note. Even if SPOT cannot acquire its location from the GPS network it will still attempt to send a distress signal – without exact location – to GEOS, which will still notify your contacts of the signal and continue to monitor the network for further messages.

SPOT help

Help: Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life threatening situations. Once activated, SPOT acquires your location from the GPS network and routes it along with the HELP message through the SPOT satellite network every five minutes for one hour or until cancelled. Your contacts will receive a pre-programmed SMS text message including coordinates, or an email with a link to Google Maps™ showing your location.

Note. Even if SPOT cannot acquire its location from the GPS network it will still attempt to send a HELP message – without exact location – to your personal contacts.

Spot OK icon

Check In: Let family and friends know you're ok when you're out of cell 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. 

Once you have activated your SPOT Messenger and set up your account, you can change your contacts and customize your message at any time. When you push the Check-in button, you send one pre-programmed message to your contacts. Your contacts will receive an SMS text message including coordinates, or an email with a link to Google Maps™ showing your location.

Spot Custom message

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 Assist service on your Help button. 

The Custom Message functions exactly like your Check In message. You can also have access to your waypoints in your SPOT account so you can review your route at a later date. Or link your SPOT account to SPOT Adventures and save a map of your adventures using your SPOT waypoints, and enhance the story with photos and a blog.

Once you have activated your SPOT Messenger and set up your account, you can change your contacts and customize your message at any time. When you push the Check In button, you send one pre-programmed message to your contacts. Your contacts will receive an SMS text message including coordinates, or an email with a link to Google Maps™ showing your location.

This is a great button to show off to your mates where you are (especially the ones that pulled out of the ride at the last minute) with a message along the lines of "Had a great day of riding and washing the dust out of my throat with a cold beer". Your position pops up on a map showing where you are!

Spot Track icon

Tracking: Allow friends and family to follow your progress online in near real-time and save waypoints so you can review your entire route at a later date.

Once you activate the tracking mode, SPOT acquires and sends your GPS coordinates to your SPOT account and, if you choose, Shared Pages. Creating a SPOT Shared Page allows you to share your GPS route with your friends and family easily in near real-time on the web through a personal link. You can make your Shared Page private or public. Your choice! Just share that URL with your friends and family and they can easily track your adventures. Upload your tracks to SPOT Adventures, a social portal, where you can set up a profile and blog with others sharing their SPOT Adventures.

Tracking Options: 

Unlimited Tracking Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn't stop until you do. 

Extreme Tracking Get all of the great features of Unlimited Tracking, but with the added ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 ½ minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates!

Included with your SPOT Gen3 is; Strap, USB cable, Quick Reference Guide, Caribiner, Batteries 

Note*. There may be cheaper SPOT Gen3 Satellite communicators available from outside Australia. However, there has been reports of technical gliches on the Australian satellite to ground network. Therefore, buying a SPOT Gen3 from outside Australia introduces the potential for network errors limiting the functionality of those SPOT devices. SPOT Gen3 Satellite communicators purchased in Australia will work on about 95% of landmasses globally. Please use the SPOT coverage link to see where SPOT devices work.

Note**. After purchasing the SPOT Gen3 Satellite communicator, YOU will need to activate it and pay a yearly fee to use it. Instructions for this process are included with any purchased SPOT Gen3. Please use the SPOT Functions & Service Costs link that summarises subscription fees and services.
