SPOT Gen3 Support
SPOT Gen3 is no longer in production, however, it is still supported on the Globalstar Satellite Network.
How dependable is the SOS feature?
The S.O.S. feature of the SPOT Gen4 is the highest priority message sent from the device. When initiated, the S.O.S. message transmission takes priority over all other messages. FocusPoint International, Inc. provides the S.O.S./911 monitoring included in your Basic Service. Your device will send FocusPoint International Inc. your GPS coordinates every 5 minutes until S.O.S. is cancelled, the batteries die, or the unit is powered off.
Note: Powering off the unit will still potentially result in a Search and Rescue attempt.
