the SPOT Gen3 provides location-based messaging and emergency notification tech that allows you to communicate from remote locations around the globe adding to your safety.
With a mobile phone in your pocket or pack, switched on or off, there is always a feeling that you’re never far from civilisation. In most cases a switched off phone and an hour or two of charging hard on the trails is a winning combination. But what happens when things go wrong? If you’re out alone, on hard to find trails, local or otherwise, you can get yourself into a spot of bother pretty quickly if you stack the bike at speed. Protective gear will help, but if you’re unable to ride, walk or even get up off the ground then the situation can get serious very quickly.
How about a GPS driven tracker that will help you out when all goes wrong?
The Spot Gen 3 is a satellite personal tracker that will follow your movements and let nominated family or friends know your location and allows you to alert either them or local emergency services when all goes wrong.
You will need to buy a service plan (and choose the level of communication you need) once you’ve purchased the tracker and then log on to the findmespot.com site to activate your account. This allows you to customise the contacts and messages that your Gen3 tracker will use and can be changed or updated as and when required.
SPOT Gen3’s customized tracking features takes tracking to new level.The tracking is motion-activated regardless of the subscription package you choose (Basic, Unlimited or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do and increases battery life.
