Can I send a message while tracking?

While tracking with your SPOT you will be able to send Custom or Check-in/Ok messages.  If a Help or SOS message is sent from your device with tracking mode enabled, tracking will stop as the Help / SOS messages take message transmission priority. Common Issues My tracks did not go through while using more than one function. When a new message is sent from the SPOT device while Tracking is active, the Tracking will be suspended during the transmission of the message. The message will be marked in My Locations and serves as a substitute for the missing track. ...

Tips to help send your first SPOT Check-OK message.

1) Go outside to where SPOT has a clear view of the sky in all directions. 2) Press and hold the ON/OFF button until the function light blinks green. 3) Press and hold the Check-In/OK button until the function light blinks green. 4) Leave SPOT outdoors. The GPS indicator light blinks green as SPOT acquires a GPS fix. Once SPOT acquires your GPS location, the Message Sending light and GPS light will blink green in unison for ~15 seconds to notify you that your message is being transmitted with GPS location. The Message Sending light will continue to blink green over the remainder of the 20 minutes message cycle and for one (1) hour after the end of the message cycle (this is to provide you with additional time to check if your most recent message was transmitted). The Check-In/OK function light will turn off once the message cycle is complete. 5) Verify that the message was received in the email or SMS account(s) that you set up during activation in your Check-In/OK contact list. 6) You can also view your messages in your account at Making sure you can send an OK message is a safe way to test your message delivery system from end to end. If you do not receive your OK message on the first try, move the unit to a different location since something may be blocking the signal where you first tried. If the GPS light blinks red, SPOT does not have a clear view of the GPS satellites and you must move to an area with a clearer view of the sky for proper operation. Then repeat steps 2 through 5. You can update the names and contact information anytime via your account on the SPOT website. Leave your personal contact information as one of the contacts for future system testing and GPS Acquisition before each trip.  ...
