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.
TRACKING SPOT Gen3’s customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do.
