SPOT Gen3 is an affordable satellite messenger that features the ability to track your adventures, send messages to friends and family, send for help if you need it and, should the worst happen, send an SOS to GEOS International Response Coordination Center .

Enhanced Services ONLY available with SPOT Gen3:

SPOT Gen3's customised tracking features take your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking 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. This is a great new battery-saving feature!

New Tracking Options:

Unlimited Tracking: Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 tracker will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn't stop until you do.

Very Happy
SPOT customer since the get go...with Spot, Spot 2 and now 3. Three power sources...with two type battery options and USB source. User guide : The USB port can not be used to charge the batteries. Suggested that batteries be in place when using a USB power source. Strap with clip and easy attachment for fastened to yourself or some gear. Will work in my Ram Gen 2 holder without issue.. Using the Ram Mount with USB power cable will require drilling a hole in Ram issue there. Like the flip up tabs for Help and SOS. Like the separate on/off button. Buttons are larger and flat...easier to use with gloves... The lighting is great...should not be any doubt if a signal is being transmitted...a big improvement.

Excellent for tracking my motorcycle rides. I gave it a 4 star rating because I have my unit set to track every 5 minutes but it will sometimes go 10,15,20,25 and sometimes over 30 minutes before it will leave the next track. The front of my unit is clearing facing the sky. If you go down into a deep canyon it will not track at all. With the Unlimited Tracking feature my wife can just go to the computer and see where I'm at and with the touch of a button I can notify that I am OK.
