Tracking in Near Real-Time

Whether you're hiking, boating, driving or flying, SPOT Tracking provides a GPS trail of your route, which you can make public or private. Share your outdoor experiences with the people that matter most every step of the way!


Basic Tracking
Automatically transmits your GPS location every 10 minutes for up to 24 hours. You can track as long as you like, but after 24 hours, you will need to re-set your tracking. This service is available for SPOT Connect and SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger. 39 per year. Basic Tracking is included in the Basic Service Plan for SPOT Gen3 just 138 per year

Enhanced Tracking Services ONLY available with SPOT Gen3

SPOT Gen3's customized tracking feature takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose. A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do. (This is a great new battery-saving feature! And, you don't have to remember to re-set your tracking after 24 hours.)


Unlimited Tracking
Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn't stop until you do. 39 per year


Extreme Tracking
Get all of the great features of Unlimited Tracking, but with the added ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 ½ minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates! 99 per year
