- Custom Tracking Rate - SPOT Gen3's customized tracking allows you to change the rate that tracks are sent from 2 1/2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes when you upgrade to one of the new tracking services: Unlimited or Extreme Tracking.
- Motion-Activated Tracking - A vibration sensor tells SPOT to send your GPS location when you are moving, conserving battery power and avoids sending duplicate tracks.
- Continuous Tracking - When you upgrade to Unlimited or Extreme Tracking, SPOT Gen3 will send track messages until you turn off your SPOT. No need to reset after 24 hours.
Dock Mode for watercraft monitoring:<Br>
A new feature is Dock Mode which is designed for asset monitoring of a vessel that is primarily stored on the water. Dock Mode changes the way the SPOT determines new movement from a vibration sensor, embedded within the unit, to accommodate constant movement of a vessel on the water when moored or at anchor.
When multiple track points with similar GPS coordinates are detected, tracking will go into standby mode. While in standby mode SPOT will not send track messages, but it will continue to attain your GPS coordinates at the same rate as your track mode. Once SPOT has determined movement over a 200m distance, tracking will resume normally.
NOTE : Requires additional purchase of annual subscription.
