What Is A Spot Gen3 Satellite Tracker And How Does It Work?

The SPOT Gen3 is a pocket-sized satellite GPS tracker that provides a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when you need it. It is proven to be one of the best value for money lifesaving and communications devices that you can carry when travelling in remote areas.

SPOT Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger is part of the multiple award winning range of SPOT tracker devices designed to offer one way personal communications, SOS alerting, and follow-me tracking all with the push of a button.

This SPOT tracker lets family and friends know you're okay, or if the worst should happen, sends your GPS location to emergency responders. When you're on the move, the SPOT Gen3 can transmit your GPS coordinates from as little as every 2.5 minutes so you can share your adventures in near real-time, and it has a motion sensor to avoid unnecessary tracks when you're stationary.

Tips For Using A Spot Gen3 Satellite Tracker On Your Adventure

Below are some of the things we say to customers ahead of their adventure, excursion, or work trip in order to maximise their device usage:

  • Test the device before leaving: Before departure, make sure to test the device to ensure it is functioning correctly. Familiarize yourself with the different features and how to operate them. Remember, the SPOT Gen3 is not a navigator or a Garmin GPS tracker. It does not have a screen to follow. Instead it pings your location to a centralised dashboard.
  • Keep it charged: Ensure the SPOT Gen3 is fully charged before leaving and bring along a backup charger in case.
  • Activate tracking: Activate the tracking feature of the device to allow others to track your progress. This feature sends your location at regular intervals, and it can be used to notify rescuers in case of an emergency.
  • Check the weather: Satellite trackers rely on a clear line of sight to satellites to function correctly. Check the weather forecast before leaving to ensure you have a clear view of the sky.
  • Carry it with you at all times: Keep the device with you at all times, so you can quickly send an SOS signal if needed. Attach it to your backpack or keep it in your pocket.
  • Share your itinerary: Let your loved ones know your itinerary, so they know where you are and when to expect you back. Update them regularly using the device.
