Staying in communication is vital for boaters out on the water. SPOT Gen3 is a rugged, pocket-sized device providing a viable connection to family and friends on shore. With the push of a button, SPOT Gen3 can notify family members that all is well — and just as easily alert emergency responders to a GPS location. The unlimited tracking, motion-activated sensor on SPOT Gen3 sends details of a boater’s activity at a chosen rate for as long as the device is turned on and moving. The check-in feature works even when a boater is out of cellphone range, and sends family and friends a pre-programmed text message with GPS coordinates.
