IMPORTANT TIPS
  • 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 your SPOT at least 12 inches away 
    from other GPS devices.

A vibration sensor tells SPOT to send tracks when you are moving and to stop when you do. This conserves battery power and keeps your Shared Page from getting cluttered when you stop to camp for the night.

New Power Options: Now there are more options for how you power your SPOT! In addition to using the included 4 AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x batteries, you can use NiMH rechargeable batteries or, line power your SPOT Gen3 with a 5v USB connection.
