SPOT Gen 3 ReviewBy: Todd Jordan on 19 October 2017Wildearth where fantastic quick easy and a great customer experience as always. The Spot Tracker Gen 3 is a fantastic piece of kit that every adventurer should have as part of there kit. The ability to sent im ok or I need help messages with your location to friends and family is fantastic and the dedicated SOS to emergency services could save your life. When in places that your mobile may or may not work the Spot Gen 3 is a must have. I am using it for the Indian Pacific Wheel Race where spot tracker information is uploaded to Maprogess.com so dot watchers can watch the race unfold in real time online. The Spot is easy to setup and I cant recommend it highly enough.
What I think about my SPOT Gen satellite GPSBy: Jan Romanowsli on 21 July 2017I'm just about to travel the Gibb River road in Western Australia. It's reassuring to know that my family can follow my progress and if we get into trouble we can notify authorities of our whereabouts.
