What does an email or SMS notification look like that I send from my SPOT Messenger?
When the SPOT system receives a Check In, Custom or Help message, it will use the contact information settings that you entered to send notifications to your friends and family. The subject line of the email contains your unit number and if it is a Check In, Custom, or Help message.
The email contains the full Check In, Custom, or Help message that you setup for your SPOT GPS messenger. The email also contains the ESN, the exact latitude/longitude location, and a map link. Clicking on the map link will open a Google maps page that will show them your current location.
If you set up a mobile destination as one of the contacts, they will also receive a notification. The format of messages sent to a mobile phone is almost identical, except that the google map link and nearest location are not included in the message.
