Product Details

The SPOT® Gen3 satellite GPS messenger provides communication with friends and family when you want it and emergency assistance when and where you need it. Using 100% satellite technology, SPOT® works virtually anywhere in the world, even when cell phones don't. Access multiple tracking and SOS features, all with the simple push of a button. Gen3 is upgraded with Extended and Unlimited tracking modes, as well as motion-activated tracking.


  • Upgraded Tracking Options: Unlimited and Extreme Tracking allow you to choose the rate at which your tracking messages are sent – every 2.5, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes
  • Extended Tracking Mode: When you upgrade to Unlimited or Extreme tracking, SPOT® Gen3 will continue sending tracks for as long as you keep moving or until the power runs out
  • Motion-Activated Tracking: Vibration sensor tells SPOT® to send tracks when you are moving and to stop when you do; this conserves battery power and keeps your Shared Page from getting cluttered when you stop to camp for the night; available with all tracking service levels
  • Longer Battery Life: Nearly twice the battery life of the original SPOT® unit
  • New Power Options: Use the included 4 AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x batteries, NiMH rechargeable batteries (sold separately), or a 5v USB connection
  • SOS: The GEOS International Emergency Response Center alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide - for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe
  • Help: In the event of a non-life-threatening emergency, you can use this function to notify your personal contacts that you need assistance
  • Check-in/OK: Allows you to let your friends and family know that all is OK with a preprogrammed message along with your GPS location; a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 predetermined contacts, and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT® account for later reference
  • Custom Message: Allows you to let your friends and family now receive a custom message along with your GPS location with a push of a button
  • Track Progress: Allows you to send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress in near real time using Google Maps
  • Service subscription is required to use your SPOT® device (sold separately)
