Today's smartphones provide a level of social connection far beyond what we imagined just a few years ago. But when you go beyond the reach of the grid, your smartphone needs the help of SPOT Connect to keep you in touch with friends, family, and emergency personnel. Simply pair your smartphone with SPOT Connect, and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. Request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance.
SOS: Activate the SOS mode to begin sending your GPS location to
the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC).
Add a custom message to update responders of your condition. The IERCC
alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide – for example contacting 9-1-1
responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe.
Help: Use the Help mode to send either custom Type & Send or
Predefined messages to recipients in your contact list for non-life
Check-in/OK: Use Check-in/OK mode to send your messages and your
location to friends and family. These messages can also be
simultaneously sent to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Your waypoint
is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored
waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT
Track Progress: Start/stop tracking at any time using the SPOT
Connect App. (Additional service required). You can also mark a
Reference Point or send Check-in/OK messages from specific locations
while in Track Progress mode.
Type & Send: Use SPOT Connect to send custom email and text
messages via satellites to your contacts. Create up to 41 character SOS,
Help and Check-in/OK messages. Messages will be sent directly to the
contact groups you select via email or SMS. You can even post custom
messages on Twitter and Facebook. If you encounter problems, you can
send custom SOS messages describing your situation, with your GPS
Social Networks: Don't lose the connection to your social
networks when you venture off the cellular grid. SPOT Connect with the
basic service package enables you to send Predefined messages to your
favorite social destinations. The Type & Send function allows you to
create short custom messages in the field, which you can send to social
destinations or specific contacts via email or text message.
