SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger - Gen2 - Orange
SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger
The SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger provides a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when you need it. Using 100% satellite technology, SPOT works virtually anywhere in the world, even where cell phones don’t – all with the push of a button.
Use this function In the event of a life threatening or other critical emergency to notify emergency services of your GPS location and that you need assistance. The GEOS International Emergency Response Center alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide – for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe.
In the event of a non-life threatening emergency, you can use this function to notify your personal contacts that you need assistance. Additional SPOT S.O.V. (Save Our Vehicle) can be purchased and programmed to your Help button as well. When activating SPOT S.O.V., the Help button will notify professional roadside services. SPOT has partnered with Nation Safe Drivers (NSD) to provide a vehicle assistance program like no other.
This feature allows you to let your friends and family know that all is OK with a pre-programmed message along with your GPS location. With a push of a button a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 pre-determined contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account.
This feature allows you to let your friends and family now receive a custom message along with your GPS location with a push of a button. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using SPOT S.O.V. on your Help button.
Start/stop tracking at any time using your SPOT device. You can also mark a Reference Point or send Check-in/OK messages from specific locations while in Track Progress mode.
SPOT S.O.V. (Save Our Vehicle)
Our 24/7 roadside vehicle assistance program will get help for you and your car, SUV, ATV, RV, trailer or motorcycle with the simple push of a button. It doesn't matter how far off the grid you go, you can always count on SPOT S.O.V. to get you out of a jam. (Additional service required).
To turn SPOT on simply press and hold the ON/OFF button until the button blinks green. SPOT performs a self-diagnostic test. When power is ON, the button will blink green every 3 seconds. This is helpful for making SPOT more visible in the dark. To turn SPOT off, press and hold the ON/OFF button until the light stops blinking.
SPOT performs a self-test when you initially turn on your SPOT. If all visible lights flash red, the SPOT self-test has found a failure, and SPOT will not send a message. If the On/Off light, GPS light and Message Sending light all blink red, SPOT has a GPS failure, but SPOT may still be able to transmit an SOS or HELP message without your GPS location.
SPOT Message Schedule
SPOT is designed to provide outstanding quality and reliability. With a perfect view of the entire sky, the SPOT Messenger is designed to transmit virtually every message. In everyday conditions, the view of the sky is often blocked due to hills, buildings, or other obstructions so it is normal for some messages to be blocked. That is why the SPOT Messenger automatically sends multiple messages in every mode, giving you excellent overall reliability. In some modes this means multiple attempts to send the same message, while in other modes it means regularly updating GPS coordinates and sending a new message. Placement of your SPOT unit can make a difference. Experiment with placement until you are familiar with the reliability of your operating environment.
SPOT Gen2's customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen2, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do.
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.
