Frequently Bought Together



SPOT Gen4 is a personal satellite tracking and SOS device. The 4th generation sees improvements in battery life, design and durability.

SOS By Satellite

Should the worst happen you can be reassured that your SPOT device will alert your emergency contacts (set-up before your trip) as well as the FocusPoint International Emergency Response Center of your GPS coordinates at the push of a button. The transmission via satellite means that even in the most remote of areas your SOS situation will be responded to.

FocusPoint International will assess your location to coordinate rescue with local emergency services and communicate with your emergency contacts.

Track Progress

Track Progress orders your SPOT device to begin automatically sending out tracking messages at pre-defined intervals. All track points will be sent to SPOT Mapping, an online mapping portal where you can create a public URL for contacts to monitor as you undertake your journey.

Motion-activated tracking means the device will only send out track points when you are moving to preserve battery life.

SPOT Gen4 Tracking Frequencies:

  • 2.5 min tracking interval: Basic service plan and Extreme tracking service plan required
  • 5 min tracking interval: Basic service plan required
  • 10 min tracking interval: Basic service plan required
  • 30 min tracking interval: Basic service plan required

Pre-defined Messages

SPOT Gen4 can be used to send pre-defined messages to friends, family or colleagues.  These messages can be delivered to email addresses or by SMS.  Simply set up the text you wish to send and the recipients you want to send to before your trip and at the push of a button your message can be sent.

Pre-defined message buttons on offer are Check-In for manual location updates, Help for non-life threatening situations and Custom for whatever you choose e.g. 'running late' or 'arrived safely'.  All pre-defined messages will automatically include your GPS coordinates.

Up to 10 recipients can be set up for each pre-defined message type.

SPOT for Business

Keep track of your remote workers in the easy-to-use, cloud-based portal.  See they have arrived safely and be alerted of emergency situations.

SPOT is easy to set up and offers inclusive messaging subscriptions. This means fixed-price subscription invoices, a great feature when calculating ongoing costs for your project.

Among many others, GTC customers have used SPOT with great results in the forestry, education, security and utilities sectors as well as the armed forces.

We expect SPOT to come into its own as an important part of our health and safety strategy. With reliable satellite communications, we can get help to our employees whenever it is needed and wherever they might be. Kes Juskowiak, Scottish Water
