Product Description

When your adventures take you beyond cell service, SPOT Gen3 lets family and friends know you're ok or sends emergency responders your GPS location, all at the push of a button. Add this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential gear and stay connected wherever you roam. Long live adventure.


Basic Features of your SPOT Gen3

iconS.O.S.: With the push of a button, GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center provides your GPS coordinates and information to local response teams - for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe. The S.O.S. button is for emergencies only.


iconCheck In: Let family and friends know you're ok when you're out of cell phone range. Send a pre-programmed text message with GPS coordinates or an email with a link to Google Maps™ to your contacts with your location. With a push of a button, a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 pre-determined contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account. 

Help: Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. 

iconCustom Message: Stay in touch while off the grid by sending your custom message. Set up a message before leaving to send to contacts with your GPS location. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT Assist service on your Help button. 
iconTracking: Allow friends and family to follow your progress online in near real-time and save waypoints so you can review your entire route at a later date. SPOT Gen3's customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic, Unlimited or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do. This is a great new battery-saving feature! 


Longer Battery Life & Battery Options:

SPOT Gen3 has approximately twice the battery life of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger! 
Now there are more options for how you power your SPOT:

  • 4 AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x Batteries (L92)
  • 4 AAA Energizer® NiMH reusable batteries (NH12)
  • Line power with a 5v USB connection. (SPOT Gen3 is not waterproof when line powered.)

Subscription Service:

For SPOT to work you need to register and subscribe to the SPOT service plan. Basic Service Plans include the features listed above plus some social media (FB & Twitter) connectivity. You should check the cost of the service plans at Find Me SPOT prior to purchasing the unit. You will be setting up your own subscription through this site once you receive your unit.

Unlimited Tracking Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn't stop until you do. 

Extreme Tracking Get all of the great features of Unlimited Tracking, but with the added ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 ½ minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates!

Where it works:

SPOT works around the world, including virtually all of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia, portions of South America, Northern Africa, and North-Eastern Asia and hundreds or thousands of miles offshore of these areas. In Russia, the GPS accuracy of your SPOT is limited (degraded) in accordance with Russian regulations restricting the accuracy of GPS performance for devices utilized in Russia.

ORANGE: 96% or better probability of sending a single message within 20 minutes
GREY: reduced or no coverage within a 20 minute period


Important tips:

SPOT needs a clear view of the sky to obrtain a GPS signal and provide the most accurate information. It is not reliable indoors, in a cave, or in very dense bush.
Orienting SPOT so that the SPOT logo is facing up towards the sky will improve performance as the antenna is located underneath the logo.
Keep your SPOT at least 30cm away from other GPS devices.

Included with your SPOT Gen3: batteries, strap, carabiner, USB Cable, Quick Reference Guide
