Though smart phones have come leaps and bounds over the past couple years, when you’re off the grid communication is impossible. The Spot Connect lets you keep in touch with friends, family, and emergency personnel. Pair your smart phone with the Spot Connect and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update your status from the middle of the forest, send you CPA an email from a volcanic site, and in the event of an emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance.
SOS: Activate the SOS mode to begin sending your GPS location to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC). Add a custom message to update responders of your condition. The IERCC alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide – for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe.
Help: Use the Help mode to send either custom Type & Send or Predefined messages to recipients in your contact list for non-life threatening assistance.
Check-in/OK: Use Check-in/OK mode to send your messages and your location to friends and family. These messages can also be simultaneously sent to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventures account.
Track Progress: Start/stop tracking at any time using the SPOT Connect App. (Additional service required). You can also mark a Reference Point or send Check-in/OK messages from specific locations while in Track Progress mode.
Social Networks: Don't lose the connection to your social networks when you venture off the cellular grid. SPOT Connect with the basic service package enables you to send Predefined messages to your favorite social destinations. The Type & Send function allows you to create short custom messages in the field, which you can send to social destinations or specific contacts via email or text message.
SPOT Assist: SPOT Assist allows you to notify third-party towing professionals of your request for assistance on land or water. (Additional service required).
