No matter where you roam, SPOT gives you peace of mind with a vital line of communication with friends and family when and where you want it, and emergency assistance when and where you need it. - Unlike a traditional GPS device which only recieves a satellite signal indicating your location, SPOT utilizes dual satellite networks to receive your location as well as transmit it along with pre-programmed messages to the recipients of your choice.

SPOT works around the world, even where cell phones don’t, including virtually all of North America, Europe and Australia, portions of South America, Northern Africa and Northeastern Asia, and hundreds or thousands of miles offshore of these areas. - Backed by one of the world’s leading mobile satellite companies, the SPOT satellite network is currently employed by over 50,000 governmental and industrial clients, and averages a greater than 99% message success rate.

How It Works: Once activated, SPOT will acquire its exact coordinates from the GPS network, and send that location along with a distress message to a GEOS International Emergency Response Center every five minutes until cancelled. The Emergency Response Center notifies the appropriate emergency responders based on your location and personal information – which may include local police, highway patrol, the Coast Guard, our country’s embassy or consulate, or other emergency response or search and rescue teams – as well as notifying your emergency contact person(s) about the receipt of a distress signal.
  • SPOT features four key functions that enable users to send messages to friends, family or emergency responders, based upon varying levels of need:
  • Alert 9-1-1 – Alert emergency responders to your exact location, SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes until power is depleted or 911 is cancelled.
  • Ask for Help – Request help from friends and family in your exact location, SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes for one hour or until Help is cancelled.
  • Check In – Let contacts know where you are and that you’re okay, SPOT sends three identical messages to the SPOT service for redundancy.
  • Track Progress – Send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress using Google Maps™ SPOT sends one message every 10 minutes for 24 hours or until SPOT is powered off.
