Basic Features included with your SPOT Gen3:
S.O.S.: With the push of a button, GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center provides your GPS coordinates and information to local response teams - for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe. The S.O.S. button is for emergencies only.
Tracking: Customized tracking features take your adventure to the next level. Choose motion-activated tracking regardless of the level of service you choose and set up a vibration sensor to tell your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do.
Check In: Send a pre-programmed text message or an email with GPS coordinates to up to 10 contacts with your location. Your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a Shared View or SPOT Adventures account.
Custom Message: Set up Custom Messages before your next adventure to send to your list of pre-determined contacts. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT S.O.V. service on your Help button.
Help/ SOV: Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. Or, use SPOT S.O.V. for professional vehicular services on land. (Additional service required)

3. Can I use other batteries in an emergency with my SPOT Gen4?
SPOT highly recommends that you use either Energizer™ Ultimate 8x AAA Lithium or Energizer™ NiMH Rechargeable Batteries to achieve reliable performance.
Other AAA batteries will work with SPOT but are not recommended for optimal performance. Using non-recommended battery types may degrade the performance of your SPOT’s message transmission.
Always carry extra batteries with you.
4. Can the unit be plugged in to an external power source?
Yes. SPOT Gen5 can be line powered through a 5v USB connection.
Using USB line power will NOT charge rechargeable batteries inside the unit and SPOT Gen3 is not waterproof when connected to line power.
