Whether you want to check in, make calls or monitor your prized possessions, SPOT uses 100% satellite technology to keep you connected to the people and things that matters most, all while using the world's most modern satellite network.

SPOT X is a new advanced device which provides 2-way satellite messaging so you can stay connected to family, friends and colleagues whenever you're outside of mobile range, including direct communication with Search & Rescue services in case of life-threatening emergency.

Important Tips

  • 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, in an abyss, or in very dense woods.
  • Orienting SPOT X so that the antenna is
    pointing up toward the sky will improve performance.
  • Keep your SPOT at least 12 inches away from other GPS devices.
