"The latest production of award-winning SPOT devices SPOT Gen3 gives you a critical, life-saving line of communication using 100% satellite technology."

Enhanced Services ONLY Available With SPOT Gen3

SPOT Gen3's customised tracking features takes your SPOT know-how to the next level.

Tracking Options:

  • 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 + minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates!

Important Tips

SPOT requires a clear view of the sky to obtain a GPS signal and provide the most accurate location information. It is not reliable indoors, in a case or in very dense forest.

Orienting the SPOT so that the SPOT logo is facing up to the sky will improve performance as the antenna is located under the logo.

Keep you SPOT at least 12' away from other GPS devices.
