How do I update my device settings?

The SPOT Gen3 will require a device update or sync when changes are made to the device Tracking Interval, Movement Alert or Dock Mode. When a device settings update/sync or firmware update is available for your device, an orange starburst will appear on your SPOT Account when you are signed-in. Clicking on the starburst will display information containing how and where to download the SPOT Device Updater software (click here to download it directly). 

Connect your SPOT Gen3 to your computer with a micro USB cord (included in the box) and open the SPOT Device Updater. You will need to enter your device's Auth code (located in the battery compartment of the device) and click submit. The SPOT Device Updater will transfer your new settings from your account to your SPOT device.
