SPOT Functions

SOS / Emergency: Use in the event of a life threatening or critical emergency to notify emergency services of your GPS location and that you need assistance. The GEOS Response Center alerts the agency appropriate to your location – eg coastguard or mountain rescue. Once activated, SPOT will acquire its GPS location and send with a distress message to the GEOS Response Center every 5 minutes until cancelled or until batteries are depleted. Even if SPOT cannot acquire its location it will still attempt to send a distress signal – without exact location – to GEOS, which still notifies your contacts of the signal and continue to monitor for further messages.
 
Help: For a non-life threatening emergency, you can use this function to notify your personal contacts you need assistance.
 
Check-in/OK: Allows you to let your friends and family know all is OK with a pre-programmed message and your GPS location. The message is sent via email/SMS to up to 10 pre-set contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account. Once you have activated your SPOT and set up your account, you can change contacts and customise your message at any time. When you push the Check-in/OK button, you send one pre-programmed message to your contacts. Your contacts will receive an SMS text message including coordinates, or an email with a link to Google Maps™ showing your location.
 
Custom Message: Sends your friends and family a custom message with your GPS location. Custom Message works exactly like Check-in/OK. You can use it for a different group of people to the check-in list. You also have access to your waypoints in your SPOT account so you can review your route at a later date.
 
Track: Send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress in near real time using Google Maps. With your SPOT account you can set up a SPOT Shared Page which lets you show your SPOT GPS locations to others on a Google Map.
 
You can also subscribe to an automatic tracking service which will log your position every 10 minutes (subject to GPS acquisition).
 
The annual service charge is  €99 for the basic service (all messages except automatic tracking) and the automatic tracking is €39. These are accessed when you register your unit on the SPOT website.
