The Spot Gen3 is the safest and smartest way to travel into the unknown. The Spot GPS messenger allows you to have a lifeline to safty when you are way beyond cell range! At Bison Tactical we use every product we sell. We want to make sure we have personal experience with the products so we can better inform our customers. This is particularly important with a GPS locator, because when you need it, you will want to know that it will work. Features include tracking, SOS, check-in, help/spot assist, and custom message. These features are available with the Spot Gen 3 Basic Service Package.
Spot Gen 3 has a unique tracking system that is only active when you are, turning on when you move, but going into standby when you are stationary. This helps save battery life, while allowing for the longest operational time. You are also able to customize your experience with different levels of tracking (Basic, Unlimited, or Extreme).
With the push of a button, GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center provides your GPS coordinates and information to local authorities and rescue personnel. For instance, contacting 911 emergency personnel in America and 112 emergency services in Europe. The S.O.S. button is to be used in case of extreme emergencies only.
Let family and friends know that you're ok when you're out of cell phone range. Send a pre-programmed text message with your GPS coordinates, or send an email, with a link to Google Maps™, to your contacts that pinpoints your location. With a push of a button, a message is sent, via email or SMS, to up to 10 pre-selected people. 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 Adventure account for keeping track of places you've been, or showing others what adventures you've been on!
Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. Or, use SPOT Assist for professional services on land. (Additional service required).
Stay in touch while off the grid by sending a custom message to your contacts!. Set up a message before leaving to send to contacts, along with your GPS location. Use this feature as a secondary means at delivering an 'OK message', or you can transfer your personal help alert to this message function (if you are using a Spot Assist service) on your Help button.
