Today's smart phones are capable of a lot of things, but when they don't have signal when you need it they can let you down. This is where the SPOT Connect helps. Simply download the SPOT app from your Android or iPhone and you will be able to use your phone as a satellite communicator.

With all the same features as the original SPOT, plus the ability to type your own message up to 41 characters from your keypad, you will be able to get in contact with the people you need to wherever you are without having to worry about how much signal your cell phone has.

SPOT Connect is one of the smallest satellite enabled communications devices currently available. It is designed to offer one way personal communications, SOS alerting and follow-me tracking all. SPOT Connect also allows you to compose messages through your Bluetooth enabled Android phone or iPhone and transmit via the satellite network, even in areas with no GSM coverage. Most functions of SPOT Connect are controlled through your smartphone, with the exception of the SOS button which can be controlled directly from the device itself.

SPOT Connect works in areas of the world where no other forms of communication exist, including oceans, deserts and mountains. It is an invaluable travel companion and potential lifeline for outdoors enthusiasts, expeditioners, or anyone working in remote locations. Easy to carry, the SPOT Connect weighs just 139 grams including batteries and fits easily in the palm of your hand. SPOT Connect provides a vital line of communication with friends and family when you want it, and emergency assistance when you need it and is proven to be one of the best value for money lifesaving and communications devices that you can carry when travelling in remote areas.

SPOT Connect offers the following features:

SPOT SOS
SPOT SOS
The SOS function can be used in the unfortunate event of an emergency scenario or other life-threatening situation. Once activated, SPOT Connect will acquire its exact coordinates from the GPS network, and send that location along with a distress message to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordinating Center every five minutes until cancelled or until the batteries are depleted. The Emergency Response Center notifies the appropriate emergency responders based on your GPS location and personal data as well as notifying your emergency contacts about the receipt of a distress signal.

SPOT Help
SPOT Help
The Help function acts as a less serious version of the SOS function; it can be used for circumstances which are not immediately dangerous and will alert your own contacts to your situation.

SPOT Check In/OK
SPOT Check In/OK
The Check-in function is a simple feature which transmits a message to reassure your family, friends, or colleagues that all is well, or that you have reached your destination. Up to 10 contacts can be set up and all tracking points automatically save to your SPOT account. Your contacts will receive either a text with your message and coordinates, or an email featuring a Google Maps link to your location.

Type and Send
Type and Send*
When paired with a compatible device, SPOT Connect can compose messages with up to 41 characters on the go. These can be sent individually, or as an SOS, Help, or Check-in/OK messages to whichever contact groups you select via email or SMS.

* This function requires the use of a paired device and the SPOT Connect app. Additional service plan required.

SPOT Track Progress (Additional service plan required)
SPOT Track Progress (Additional service plan required)
