SPOT Gen4 Satellite GPS Messenger
The SPOT Gen4 is available for purchase.
When your adventures take you beyond cell service, SPOT Gen4 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.
SPOT Gen4’s customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen4, 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! And, you don’t have to remember to re-set your tracking after 24 hours.)
New Tracking Options:
Unlimited Tracking Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen4 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!
S.O.S. For emergencies only, a push of a button can send your coordinates to emergency services for rescue.
Check In Send a pre-programmed message to up to 10 contacts with your location. Your waypoints are stored in your SPOT account for reference and can be easily integrated into a shared view.
Custom Message Pre-program a custom message to send to contacts to let them know everything is ok, or if you are travelling to a new location.
Help/S.O.V. Let your contacts know you need assistance in a non-life-threatening situation, or use SPOT S.O.V. for professional vehicle services on land. (Additional service required)
