HOW CAN I USE SPOT WITH MY GROUP?
SPOT is placed on a participant’s rucksack, this transmits the GPS position in real time which is then sent via satellite to a secure server. This data can be viewed securely on a computer online or via a hand-held device using the SPOT app. Supervisors, Assessors, Leaders, Licensed Organizations and emergency contacts can then monitor the team’s location and progress. Using the tracking functionality of SPOT is an effective way of supporting team safety.
The inclusion of two way communication with SPOT X enhances safety even further enabling direct two way communication with the rescue authorities when required.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award appoints Mapyx as exclusive tracking partner using SPOT satellite devices.
