SPOT Gen4 lets users check in with family, friends, or managers by sending pre-programmed text messages or emails with their GPS coordinates. Users also have a life-saving line of communication if the unexpected should happen; Gen4 sends your GPS location to emergency responders with the push of a button. GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Centre provides your GPS coordinates and information to local response teams
Add this rugged, pocket-sized safety device to your personal protective equipment (PPE) to stay connected to your remote or lone workers, no matter how far off the grid they go.
The SOS button is for emergencies only. Customised 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. 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.

This SPOT Satellite Tracker provides a critical, life-saving line of communication when you travel into remote areas where traditional forms of communication are unavailable. The tracker's SOS function can be used in the unfortunate event of an emergency scenario or other life-threatening situation.
Once activated, the SPOT tracker will acquire its exact coordinates from the GPS network and send that location along with a distress message to theGEOS International Response Center every five minutes until cancelled or until the batteries are depleted. The Emergency Response Centre notifies the appropriate emergency responders based on your GPS location and personal data, as well as informing your emergency contacts about the receipt of a distress signal.
SPOT Gen4 allows you to transmit your GPS coordinates every 2.5, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. Additionally, the new Unlimited and Extreme tracking plans will send messages until you turn off your SPOT Tracker, so there is no need to reset after 24 hours. Friends, family, and colleagues can view your current and past tracks online. SPOT Gen4 has the following battery life based on the tracking frequencies shown:
2.5-minute tracking interval: 20 days; basic service plan and Extreme tracking service plan required
5 minute tracking interval: 25 days; basic service plan required
10 minute tracking interval: 45 days; basic service plan required
30 minute tracking interval: 50 days; basic service plan required
This SPOT Tracker's Check-in button is a simple feature that transmits a message to reassure your family, friends, or colleagues that all is well or that you have reached your destination. Up to 10 contacts can be set up, and all tracking points are automatically saved to your SPOT account. Your contacts will receive either a text with your message and coordinates or an email featuring a Google Maps link to your location.
This button will send a pre-written message to your chosen contacts, along with your current GPS location, for a more detailed response or a secondary 'help' message when used with the SPOT Assist service. Your contacts will receive either a text with your message and coordinates or an email featuring a Google Maps link to your location.
The SPOT Gen4 tracker's Help function acts as a less serious version of the SOS function. SPOT Help can be used in not-immediately dangerous circumstances and will alert your contacts to your situation.
SPOT Gen4 works in areas where no other forms of communication exist, including oceans, deserts, and mountains. It is an invaluable travel companion and a potential lifeline for outdoors enthusiasts, expeditioners, or anyone working in remote locations.
The Gen4 Spot Tracker works exactly as it should. Reliable tracking and 1 way communication when off-grid. I’m really happy with the purchase and the service provided during the sale. I highly recommend both the product and the team at Keep Track GPS.
