Who Uses SPOT-2?
SPOT2 customers include businesses that operate in areas where cellular coverage is poor or non-existent and landline service unavailable. Natural resource companies, long-haul transportation operators, commercial fishermen, government employees, recreational and travel enterprises, geologists, prospectors and public safety organizations all value SPOT products and services.
Spot-2 notifies friends, family, coworkers or an international emergency rescue coordination center with status messages, including GPS coordinates, based on situation and need.
Remote and Lone Workers:
Industry employment in transportation, government, oil and gas and natural resources often require workers to operate remotely and alone. This poses considerable risks not only for the workers but also employers. As a result, responsibility is placed on employers to identify high-risk environments for their workers. Companies are challenged to provide safe work practices and ensure lone worker requirements are met. The most efficient way to ensure lone worker safety is effective communication.
SPOT 2 Satellite Trackers Main Features:
Check-in with SPOT: - This feature allows you to let your friends and family know that all is OK with a pre-programmed message along with your GPS location. With a push of a button a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 pre-determined contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account.
SPOT Track Progress: - This feature allows you to send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress in near real time using Google Maps. With your SPOT account you have the ability to set up a SPOT Shared Page which allows you to show your SPOT GPS locations to others on a Google Map.
Help! - In the event of a non-life threatening emergency, you can use this function to notify your personal contacts that you need assistance. Additional SPOT Assist services can be purchased and programmed to your Help button as well. When activated with SPOT Assist, the Help button will notify professional services either on the land or water. SPOT has partnered with national service providers to offer non-life threatening assistance.
Custom Message: - This feature allows you to let your friends and family receive a custom message along with your GPS location with a push of a button. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT Assist service on your Help button.
Roadside Assistance: - Using the SPOT's HELP feature will give you access to 24/7 Roadside Assistance. SPOT Assist's roadside service will offer 24/7 roadside assistance in the United States and Canada. Restrictions do apply, assistance limited to mapped roads. Using your national roadside assistance provider, the SPOT will pinpoint your exact location for the service provider to ensure quick service when you require it. No more guessing where you are and then trying to translate that location to the roadside assistance provider. They will find you with pin point accuracy.
SOS and 911: - Press and hold the 9-1-1 button to alert emergency responders of life-threatening events. The GEOS Emergency Response Center will work with public response agencies around the world, and call your emergency contacts to find out more about your situation and keep them informed of rescue progress. GEOS works with all rescue agencies from the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and Coast Guard to local urban and rural 9-1-1 call centers. Optionally, GEOS will also dispatch private rescue agencies in those countries where public resources won't do. 911 sends a message and location update every 5 minutes until canceled.
The SPOT satellite messenger uses the Globalstar data communications network which is separate from the voice service.
