Can I use the SPOT Gen4 inside of my vehicle?


Yes. For normal usage place your unit horizontal on the dash, logo side up, slightly tilted towards the glass to ensure the signal is going through the glass, and not blocked by the roof. Experiment by sending Test Messages to ensure your placement is allowing the signal to transmit clearly through the glass. If in doubt, take the unit outside to a location with a clear view of the sky, where you can do so safely.  

SPOT Assist Roadside Service is currently available only in the United States and Canada.

Please note:  Messaging reliability may be reduced while attempting to transmit messages from within a vehicle.
