Product Description
With the SPOT Gen3 GPS Messenger Personal Tracker, help is only the push of a button away. SOS button alerts GEOS International Response Coordination Center of emergency situations and initiates your rescue. Help-assist button allows you to ask for help from your friends and family and send them your location. Check-in button lets your contacts know where you are and that you are OK. Track button allows your contacts to track your progress using Google Maps. Custom-message button sends a pre-programmed message with your GPS location. GPS uses satellites to communicate where cell phones can't. Custom track rates refresh your location every 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes. Vibration sensor tells Spot to send your location when you start and stop moving. With the enhanced tracking plan you can track your progress continuously. Rated to handle fog and humidity. Operates in temperatures from -22°F to 140°F and at altitudes ranging from -328 ft. to 21,325 ft. Designed to provide an extended battery life. Includes batteries, USB cable, carabiner, quick reference guide and carrying strap. Dimensions: 3.4"L x 2.6"W x 1"W. Weight: 4 oz.

      Comments about SPOT Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger Personal Tracker:

      I carry my SPOT on long bicycle trips in remote areas and on shorter frequent rides. On a normal day, it allows my wife or friends to watch my progress. I've had occasion to use the SOS button. I encountered an injured cyclist far from a town or cell coverage. The SPOT call center contacted the correct 911 center who dispatched a sheriff and medical almost instantly. They also contacted my wife and kept her current with what was going on. Now, I won't go out without it.

          My wife purchased the SPOT for me the day before I embarked on a 7 day offroad motorcycle trip by myself. Day 2 into the ride I fell and broke my leg, 30 miles from civilization. Within 2 hours of activating my SPOT I was being loading into a helicopter which had my coordinates and flew directly to me and then we proceeded to the hospital. SPOT did everything it was supposed to.

          Great for letting my wife know I am fine. Good to konw that help is available by using the "Assist" or "SOS" function. The Spot Gen 3 is an excellent product. I recommended it to a friend who bought one and I bought another one for my father.
