The SPOT GPS Tracker locates your position and can send an email or sms to your chosen recipients or the emergency services with your position coordinates. The basic and tracking services are available through a web link after purchasing your SPOT.
The SPOT GPS location tracker gives you and your friends peace of mind by allowing you to text or email message them or an emergency response centre details of your exact location co-ordinates in most areas of the world. Australia wide coverage. SPOT GPS location tracker uses commercial satellites to transmit and receive data so it operates without the need for mobile phone towers and is a safe, cheap and effective way of sending your position whenever you want.
SPOT GPS is a valuable tool for business use but is also for anyone wanting to send their location whilst out of mobile phone range whether over sea or land. The recipient also receives a link to your location on Google Maps provided they subscribe to that service.

How SPOT Works:

  1. GPS satellites provide coordinates
  2. SPOT messenger's onboard GPS chip determines your exact coordinates and sends your location and message to SPOT's commercial satellite system.
  3. SPOT commercial satellites relay your message to specific satellite antennas around the world.
  4. Satelitte antenna and supporting equipment route your message and location to the appropriate network.
  5. Your message is delivered according to your instructions via text message, email or emergency notification to the appropriate service.
