How do I test my SPOT Gen4 before I leave for a trip?


SPOT performs a self-diagnostic test each time it is powered on. SPOT recommends that you send and verify a Check In message before each trip. This also allows you to evaluate your entire messaging system, from the operational condition of the SPOT to the readiness of those on your contact list.
