What is Motion-Activated Tracking?

SPOT Gen4 tracking is smarter than ever! A built in vibration sensor sends tracks only when you are moving. When the device is stationary for more than five minutes SPOT Gen4 will enter Suspended Track mode. SPOT Gen4 will automatically send, at least, one more track from your resting location. While at rest, SPOT Gen4 will not send tracks. Tracking will automatically resume after the vibration sensor detects the unit has begun moving again.

Motion-Activated tracking conserves battery life and reduces duplicated tracks.
