SPOT Gen3 gives you a critical, life-saving line of communication when you travel beyond the boundaries of cell service. SPOT Gen3 lets family and friends know you’re okay, or if the worst should happen, sends emergency responders your GPS location - all with the push of a button. Add this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential gear and stay connected wherever you roam
The Spot Gen3 uses satellite technology which allows you to communicate outside of the boundaries of phone service. In an emergency, the SPOT Gen3 has an S.O.S. function that when activated alerts the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center who will send your GPS coordinates to your local response team. The check-in button allows you to send a pre-programmed text message to your friends or family as well as your location when you’re out of range, so they know that you’re okay. These tracking waypoints can also be integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or Adventure account that allows your friends and family to view a protected web link that shows your waypoints in near real time. You can also set up a custom message before you leave along with your GPS location, so you can stay in touch with your loved ones when you’re away. If you get yourself into a non-life-threatening situation, the help feature will alert your contacts that you need help, and they can get help sent your way. Be safe on your next trek with a SPOT Gen3 tracking your location as you go.
