SPOT – The World's First Satellite Messenger
Whether you're just checking in, allowing others to track your
progress, or calling for help – SPOT gives you a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when and
where you need it. And since it utilizes 100% satellite technology, SPOT works around the world – even where cell phones don't.

SPOT features four key functions that enable users to send
messages to friends, family or emergency responders, based upon varying levels of need:
- Alert 9-1-1 – Alert the GEOS Emergency Response Center to your exact location
- SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes until power is depleted or 911 is cancelled.
- Ask for Help – Request help from friends and family in your exact location
- SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes for one hour or until Help is cancelled
- Check In – Let contacts know where you are and that you're okay
- SPOT sends three identical messages to the SPOT service for redundancy. The first of those three
messages is delivered.
- Track Progress – Send and save your location and allow
contacts to track your progress using Google Maps
- SPOT sends one message every 10 minutes for 24 hours or until SPOT is powered off.
