SPOT works around the world, including virtually all of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, portions of South America, portions of North and South Africa, North-East Asia and hundreds of miles offshore of these areas.

Estimated coverage area. Actual coverage may vary. Success rates are forecasts for a SPOT messenger to successfully deliver a single message during a 20-minute period, based on network availability. Additionally, in everyday conditions it is normal for some messages to be blocked by your environment, such as hills or buildings. That’s why the SPOT Messenger is scheduled to automatically send multiple messages in every mode – giving you excellent overall reliability.

BRAND AMBASSADORS

Brand Ambassador

Justin & Patrice Lavigne

We are modern-day nomads, spending more time in the backcountry or on the road than settled somewhere. Over the years, our SPOT device has given peace of mind to our friends and families with our 12,000 cumulative trail miles and goals to reach the highest peak in every state. When Justin climbed Denali in 2016, I (Patrice) stalked his SPOT check-ins. I am so stoked we’ve upgraded to the SPOT X two-way satellite messenger for his 2019 Denali climb. As the person left behind, it will ease the worry at least some!
