SPOT Gen3™

Satellite GPS Messenger


SPOT Gen3 gives you a  line of communication when you travel beyond the boundaries of mobile service. Let family and friends know you're okay, or if the worst should happen, send emergency responders your GPS location - all with the push of a button. Add this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential gear and stay connected wherever you roam. Long Live Adventure!

CUSTOM TRACKING RATES 
Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures with available tracking intervals of 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. Upgrade to Extreme Tracking to add the ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 1/2 minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates!

MOTION-ACTIVATED TRACKING 
A vibration sensor tells SPOT to send your GPS location when you are moving and to stop when you do. This conserves battery power and avoids sending duplicate tracks. 

CONTINUOUS TRACKING 
SPOT Gen3 will send track messages until you turn off your SPOT. No need to reset after 24 hours.

Note

S.O.S. coverage only applies to the areas shown above.

SPOT works around the world, including virtually all of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, portions of South America, portions of North and South Africa, North-East Asia and hundreds of miles offshore of these areas.

Last Updated 2018-05-04. Estimated coverage area. Actual coverage may vary. Success rates are forecasts for a SPOT messenger to successfully deliver a single message during a 20-minute period, based on network availability. Additionally, in everyday conditions it is normal for some messages to be blocked by your environment, such as hills or buildings. That’s why the SPOT Messenger is scheduled to automatically send multiple messages in every mode – giving you excellent overall reliability.
