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.


 
SERVICE PLANS

SPOT X offers two different service subscription options. Choose either a monthly Flex Plan or annual contract plan. Flex Plans are best for seasonal use and only require a one-month subscription. Annual plans are perfect for get-up-and-go year 'round use with an added benefit of monthly payment. Annual contract plans also have the option for you to pay upfront and get all allotted messages in advance.

Additional Considerations
 
The SPOT X device requires an active service subscription to properly perform 2-way satellite messaging, tracking, S.O.S. capabilities and all other device functions. All subscriptions auto-renew at the end of the contract term.

Sync required in order to load predefined messages to your device.

*Enrollment in any Flex Plan is subject to a $24.99 Annual Flex Charge that is payable upon activation and then each year at renewal,even if the device is suspended at that time. This Flex Charge allows the customer to suspend service anytime during the year without activation fee recurrence when turning service on again throughout the year. All Flex Plans have a one month minimum term. Message allotment per Flex Plan includes both incoming and outgoing messages.

All Annual Contract Plans are 12 month terms with the option of monthly payments or one annual upfront payment. Those customers who prefer to make an upfront payment will get the added benefit of receiving allotted plan messages in advance for use as frequently as they would like throughout the year. Those customers who prefer to make monthly payments on the annual plan should note that unused messages will not roll over to the next month. All annual plans are subject to a one-time $19.99 activation fee. No charge applies to changing to a more inclusive annual plan; a $24.95 fee applies to changing to a less inclusive annual plan. Early termination of the service agreement will require a customer to pay an Early Termination Fee in the amount of 100% of the outstanding balance of the contract, plus the full amount of any credits issued during the Term (including promotions).
