Basic Features of your SPOT Messenger

S.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.


Check In: Send a pre-programmed text message or an email with GPS coordinates to up to 10 contacts with your location. Your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a Shared View or SPOT Adventures account. 


Help: Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. Or, use SPOT S.O.V. for professional vehicular services on land. (Additional service required) 
Custom Message: Set up Custom Messages before your next adventure to send to your list of pre-determined contacts. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT S.O.V. service on your Help button. 
Tracking: Customized tracking features take your adventure to the next level. Choose motion-activated tracking regardless of the level of service you choose and set up a vibration sensor to tell your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do.

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.

Where it works:

S.O.S. coverage only applies to the areas shown.

SPOT works around the world, including virtually all of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, portions of South America, portions of North and South Africa, North-East Asia and hundreds of miles offshore of these areas.

Last Updated 2018-05-04. Estimated coverage area. Actual coverage may vary. Success rates are forecasts for a SPOT messenger to successfully deliver a single message during a 20-minute period, based on network availability. Additionally, in everyday conditions it is normal for some messages to be blocked by your environment, such as hills or buildings. That’s why the SPOT Messenger is scheduled to automatically send multiple messages in every mode – giving you excellent overall reliability.


Important tips:

SPOT needs a clear view of the sky to obtain 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.
