WHAT IS SPOT?
SPOT delivers affordable, location-based messaging and life-saving emergency notification technology via satellite to tens of thousands of users, including school expeditions, completely independent of mobile phone coverage.
SPOT GEN3 makes it easy to track and protect school children adventuring outside of GSM mobile coverage areas.
SPOT Value Added Reseller, Mapyx, is the Official GIS & Digital Mapping Partner of Mountain England & Wales and Lowland Rescue. Mapyx solutions are in use by Search & Rescue Professionals, the Police, the Ministry of Defence, Fire Services and hundreds of educational organisations both in the UK and abroad.
For the last 7 years, the Mapyx Tracking Solution is the sole system recommended by the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE). Mapyx was selected after assessment of available systems and surveys of DofE groups using the Mapyx tracking system. The solution, when combined with the SPOT Trackers was elevated above all competition. It is available on PC, Mobile, Web Portal and SMS.
