The SPOT Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger keeps you connected and in touch during your far-flung adventures. Using satellite technology, SPOT maintains communication almost anywhere on the globe.

  • Check in with your professional and social networks, send custom text messages and let others track your real-time location via Google Maps
  • In an emergency, transmit an SOS with your exact location to GEOS Emergency Response Coordination Center to activate a rescue
  • Tracking options let you choose the capture rate that best suits your movement: 2.5-, 5-, 10-, 30- or 60-minute increments
  • With Motion Activated Tracking, SPOT Gen3 knows when you’re moving and when you stop to make camp; it stops sending tracking info until you start moving again
  • Weighing only 90g. with batteries, the compact SPOT Gen3 packs easily for traveling fast and light
  • Contoured shape with dual attachment points makes it easy to fasten the SPOT Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger to your pack, bag, boat or vehicle
  • Power options include single-use AAA lithium batteries (included), rechargeable batteries (sold separately), or line-in power via the unit’s USB port
  • Comes with 4 AAA lithium batteries, USB cord, carrying strap and carabiner clip
