SPOT uses 100% satellite technology to track your location from just about anywhere on earth, providing a means for outbound communications in places lacking cellular coverage. While this technology is ideal for anyone traveling to the far reaches of the planet, it’s just as useful when your backyard happens to be the “great wide open”. Whether you’re crossing the Pacific ocean or the Continental Divide, SPOT allows you to let others know your location, that you’re safe, or that you require assistance. This product has had a revolutionary impact in sporting activity. As of last count, SPOT products have initiated over 1350 rescues over the last 4 years in more than 60 countries. Currently, SPOT offers two devices:
SPOT, the world’s first Satellite Messenger, sends your GPS location and pre-programmed message to personal contacts or an Emergency Response Center. Using 100% satellite technology, SPOT works virtually anywhere in the world, even where cell phones don’t. SPOT allows your family and friends to track your progress on Google Maps™ or send a message via satellite to others letting them know you’re safe. In an emergency, SPOT can summon help to your location quickly. Ask for Help, Check-In and Track Progress – all with the push of a button.
Simply pair your smartphone with SPOT Connect, and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. Request non-emergency help from friends and family or road side assistance.
