SPOT - THE WORLD'S FIRST SATELLITE MESSENGER.
With the SPOT Satellite Messenger, you and your loved ones
have peace of mind knowing help is always within reach.
SPOT is the only device of its kind, using the GPS
satellite network to acquire its coordinates, and then
sending its location with a link to Google Maps and
a pre-programmed message via a commercial satellite
network. And unlike Personal Locator Beacons, SPOT does
more than just call for help. Tracking your progress,
checking in with loved ones, and non-emergency assistance
are also available, all at the push of a button. And
because it uses 100% satellite technology, SPOT works
around the world even where cell phones don't.
SPOT works around the world, includign virtually all
of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico,
Europe and Australia, portions of South America,
Northern Africa and North Eastern Asia, and hundreds
or thousands of miles off-shore of these areas.
ALERT 9-1-1 - Dispatch emergency responders to your
CHECK IN - Let contacts know where you are and that
TRACK PROGRESS - Send and save your location and allow
contacts to track your progress using your password and
ASK FOR HELP - Request help from friends and family at
your exact location.
ALERT 9-1-1: Use this function In the event of a life
threatening or other critical emergency to notify
emergency services of your exact location and that you
need assistance. The GEOS International Emergency Response
Center alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide - for
example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and
1-1-2 responders in Europe.
How It Works:
Once activated, SPOT will acquire its exact coordinates
from the GPS network, and send that location along with a
distress message to a GEOS International Emergency
Response Center every five minutes until cancelled. The
Emergency Response Center notifies the appropriate
emergency responders based on your location and personal
information which may include local police, highway patrol,
the Coast Guard, our country's embassy or consulate, or
other emergency response or search and rescue teams as
well as notifying your emergency contact person(s) about
the receipt of a distress signal.
Even if SPOT cannot acquire its location from the GPS network
it will still attempt to send a distress signal without
exact location to the Emergency Response Center, which
will still notify your contacts of the signal and continue
to monitor the network for further messages.
SPOT is designed for maximum reliability. Spot
performs a self-diagnostic test each time it is powered on.
Additionally, Spot strongly recommends that you send and
verify an OK/Check message each time before use. This
allows you to evaluate your entire messaging system,
from the operational condition of the messenger to the
readiness of those you've chosen to notify of your
With a $99.00 Per Year "service fee," but monthly and
multi-year options will purportedly be available soon.
