In the event of a non-life threatening emergency, HELP notifies your personal contacts that you need assistance. SPOT sends 1 message every 5 minutes for 1 hour or until Help is canceled. (Additional SPOT Assist services can be purchased to notify professional services either on the land or water.)
CHECK-IN/OK lets your friends and family know where you are and that you're ok. 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. SPOT sends 3 identical messages to the SPOT service for redundancy. The first of those 3 messages is delivered.
CUSTOM MESSAGE allows you to let your friends and family 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 a SPOT Assist service on your Help button.
TRACK PROGRESS saves your location and allows contacts to track your progress using Google Maps. SPOT sends one message every 10 minutes for 24 hours or until SPOT is powered off.
