Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Adventures don’t wait for good weather so SPOT upgraded this satellite communicator with a more robust housing and serious waterproofing. With a dedicated SOS button, you can quickly and easily call for first responders to be dispatched to your location. Requires a pay subscription service and a clear view of the sky to work.

  • SOS messaging sends rescuers your exact GPS location
  • SOS messages are received by FocusPoint, a worldwide emergency response center with 24/7/365 staffing
  • SOS button has a hard-plastic cover to prevent an accidental activation
  • Help function notifies your contacts of non-life-threatening emergencies. Additional SPOT assistance services can be purchased and programmed
  • Satellite coverage works around the world, including the continental US, Canada and Mexico (for coverage see SPOT’s website)
  • Custom message and GPS location alerts your contacts with help alert (can be used in place of SPOT assist service)
  • Check-in feature sends pre-programmed message and GPS location to up to 10 contacts
  • Track progress with location updates on cloud-based mapping, at 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes to maximize battery life. Extreme tracking sends updates every 2½ minutes
  • Motion activated tracking sends signals when moving, saving battery when in camp
  • Cloud-based mapping predetermines an area so you get GPS alert if you leave it
  • 2 subscription plans for year-round use, or flex plans for seasonal/month-to-month use
  • IP68 dust and waterproofing can handle sandstorms or downpours
  • 4 AAA Energizer™ Lithium Ultimate or 4 AAA Energizer™ NiMH rechargeable batteries
