About this app

SPOT satellite devices provide GPS location-based messaging, emergency, and coordination with Search and Rescue and anti-theft alerting and tracking beyond the boundaries of cellular. The SPOT satellite technology, powered by Globalstar, has initiated over 7,000 rescues around the globe.

The SPOT App allows you to view messages sent from your SPOT device, track progress, or monitor assets.


• Display SPOT messages with GPS locations on a standard map, a satellite map, or hybrid map
• Filter your SPOT messages by date range, message type, or device type
• Easily zoom to the most recent SPOT message
• Select preferred GPS coordinate display format
• Option to auto-delete SPOT messages by time or quantity within the app. Auto-deleted messages are removed from the app but remain in your SPOT Mapping account for 3 years
• Set the frequency to check for new SPOT messages

*The SPOT App requires a SPOT account with an active SPOT satellite device and a Wi-Fi or data connection to view your SPOT messages. To learn more, visit

The product is bad but the app is worse. Checkins are spotty with the product even with unrestricted view of the sky but let's talk about the app. It's not intuitive and has way points one minute but not the next. They disappear but then a little later they are back. The service delay with a way point appearing is horrible.

App wouldn't stop crashing until I cleared cache, storage, and signed back in for the second time. Not sure why. Message updates give device coordinates but they are not selectable or capable of being copied which is annoying. The map is also very low resolution, so I have to memorize the coordinates and type them into a worthwhile map application to find or navigate to the device. Would be better make this app purely for coordinate logging. For $140 + the unit cost I am a disappointed.

seems to work as well as the website with one major difference. You cannot customise the tracker pins, nor show traces. If you have one or two trackers then this might be ok but when you are observing tracks of half a dozen it is useless Website allows colours naking the display easier to overview without adding and removing filters unnecessarily.
