"SPOT is our way of enjoying total isolation without being totally isolated. Help is only a button push away, and that peace of mind is comforting whether we're on a 91km canoe paddle in a torrential rainstorm, stuck on a mountain during a hailstorm, or floating in the middle of the ocean. We know SPOT is always looking out for us."
Avid Motorcycle Rider and SPOT Rescuee
"I've used SPOT for a number of years when riding. Never did I think I'd be using the S.O.S. button...but if it weren't for SPOT, rescuers would have never found me when I fell off a cliff in 2013. I don't go anywhere without my SPOT Gen3."
SoCal Guided Hunts and 1st Hunt TV Show Host
"As a professional hunter and guide there is no better peace of mind for myself and my clients than a SPOT Gen3. As hunters, we sometimes let our guard down to chase the game. SPOT Gen3 is the best tool a hunter could have, knowing you can get help if needed with just the push of a button."
"Long Haul Paul"
"In addition to having peace of mind while traveling alone, my SPOT allows my supporters to follow my journey as I cross the continent chasing a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. MS may have taken my memory, but by using the SPOT Gen3, I no longer worry about forgetting to call my wife after long days on the road. Yes, my SPOT doubles as a marriage saving device!"

SPOT truly is a lifesaver and will always be my backup plan should anything ever go wrong."

"Over the years, my passion for the mountains has grown and much of my time is spent in vast and remote places. I enjoy having the ability to share my location and communicate with others should I encounter an emergency situation. There are endless objective hazards in the mountains and carrying my SPOT with me allows me to venture to the edge of the grid without falling off of it!"
Expedition Kayaker & Coach
"More often than not, I find myself further and further from help. My SPOT Gen3 was a crucial piece of equipment for my 750 mile circumnavigation of Vancouver Island in 2014. As a guide, coach, and expedition paddler, it is one of the few pieces of equipment that is invariably with me all the time."
"Jay Scott Outdoors"
"I have a real sense of peace knowing that I have the SPOT Gen3 with me on my hunting and fishing adventures. My wife can rest easy that I am still alive and kicking by getting updates and being able to track my every move. Just knowing that it makes her much more comfortable is a relief. I hope to never have to use the SOS button but if I do I know that help will be on the way".

Whether it's a forced landing in unfriendly terrain or a post-landing emergency situation, I know I can count on SPOT should an emergency occur."
Extreme Paddle Boarder
"Often times the places we paddle are not only dangerous but also remote. SPOT keeps me connected so that in the event things don't go as planned I always have the ability to communicate with a rescue resource. Having a tool like this helps reduce the risks and allows me to focus on the rapids"
"One of the things I love about guiding and exploring in the Western U.S. is how quickly remote wilderness areas can be accessed. With no cell coverage being the norm, SPOT Gen3 is an incredibly useful tool for logistics, keeping in touch with loved ones, and knowing the SOS button is there if needed."

"Whether I am on a fishing adventure with my family and friends or filming an episode of my TV show The Obsession of Carter Andrews I travel with my SPOT Gen3. The security and confidence I feel with SPOT allows me to enjoy the adventure that much more."

"In 2015 I paddled 280 miles through some of the most remote wilderness on the continent. The SPOT GPS Gen 3 tracked the entire trip and I used the Satellite Phone not only to speak to family anytime, but for live radio interviews from the middle of nowhere. I can't imagine an expedition without this technology."
