The SPOT Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger works where mobile phones don't! 

If you regularly disappear into the outback SPOT Gen3 gives you a critical, life-saving line of communication when you travel beyond the boundaries of mobile coverage. 

SPOT Gen3 lets family and friends know you're OK, or if the worst should happen, sends emergency responders your GPS location - all with the push of a button.  

Include this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential backcountry travel gear, and stay connected wherever you roam.
