Got a rugged adventure planned? Before you strap on your pack and boots and take off, make sure you have a device like the SPOT Gen3 from SPOT to give you a line of communication on your trip.
The Spot Gen3 uses satellite technology which allows you to communicate outside of the boundaries of phone service. In an emergency, the SPOT Gen3 has an S.O.S. function that when activated alerts the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center who will send your GPS coordinates to your local response team.
The check-in button allows you to send a pre-programmed text message to your friends or family as well as your location when you’re out of range, so they know that you’re okay. These tracking waypoints can also be integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or Adventure account that allows your friends and family to view a protected web link that shows your waypoints in near real time.
You can also set up a custom message before you leave along with your GPS location so you can stay in touch with your loved ones when you’re away. If you get yourself into a non-life-threatening situation, the help feature will alert your contacts that you need help, and they can get help sent your way. Be safe on your next trek with a SPOT Gen3 tracking your location as you go.
Very good service. Very happy with my purchase.
Trying to figure out the relative value of this device over a traditional PLB which needs to be replaced once activated. Thanks!
The Spot Gen3 satellite GPS Messenger runs off of everyday AAA batteries, so you can replace them with no issues at all! As for battery life, it depends a bit on how you're using it but it'll run for 24 hours a day for 52 days if you've got clear skies and for about 26 days if it's 50% cloudy.
