To turn SPOT on simply press and hold the ON/OFF button until the button blinks green

To turn SPOT off, press and hold the ON/OFF button until the light stops blinking.

Before you start, here are a few important things to remember to get maximum reliability from SPOT:

  •   SPOT needs a clear view of the sky to obtain a GPS signal and provide the most accurate location information. It is not reliable indoors, in a cave, or in very dense woods.
  •   Orienting SPOT so that the SPOT logo is facing up toward the sky will improve performance as the antenna is located under the logo. 
  •   Keep the Messenger at least 12 inches away from other GPS devices as SPOT can interfere with signal reception of other GPS devices.

 SOS

For life-threatening or other critical situations, alerts the GEOS International Emergency Rescue

Coordination Center (IERCC). GEOS notifies the appropriate emergency responders based on your

location and personal information – which may include local police, highway patrol, the Coast

Guard, your country’s embassy or consulate, other emergency response centers, or search & rescue teams.

 Message Cycle

SPOT sends your emergency profile information and current GPS location to GEOS every 5 minutes

until cancelled or the batteries run out. If SPOT cannot get a GPS signal, it will still attempt to send

your message – without a GPS location. There is no test mode. If you activate the SOS function,

the GEOS Rescue Coordination Center will treat it as a real emergency.

  

Spot has 2  hidden protected Buttons,  SOS and Help.

      The SOS button when activated will send SOS txt to the Receiving Satelaiter every 5 minutes

       To Activate SOS raise the protective flap and press and hold the button.

 

      The Help button when activated will send SOS txt to the Receiving Satelaiter once only

       To Activate HELP raise the protective flap and press and hold the button.

 

Spot has 3 more buttons, CHECK-IN/OK, CUSTOM MESSAGE and a TRACK PROGRESS Button
