The SPOT Connect App pairs your Android smartphone with SPOT Connect, a revolutionary satellite messenger engineered to transmit messages via satellite from virtually anywhere in the world, including remote locations.

The award-winning SPOT Connect device provides connectivity to the Globalstar satellite network for sending location-based messages from areas beyond cellular phone coverage or around town. By simply downloading the SPOT Connect App, SPOT Connect wirelessly synchs via Bluetooth® with Android devices. The SPOT satellite message features are initiated directly from the app’s intuitive user interface.

SPOT Connect utilizes proven SPOT technology to notify others of one’s GPS location coordinates and current status. By sending a message to the Globalstar satellite network, the user’s selected contacts will receive a custom Type and Send or Predefined message delivered as an SMS text message or email. SPOT Connect messages contain the user’s latitude and longitude, date, time stamp and a link to maps. Established SPOT message features include Check-in/OK, Help, SPOT Assist, SOS and automated Track Progress.

SPOT Connect messaging feature overview:
•SOS - Emergency assistance request sent with your GPS location to GEOS every 5 min until batteries die or until cancelled. The GEOS International Emergency Response Center alerts the appropriate agencies worldwide – for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe. Custom Type & Send messages can be sent with SOS for detailed emergency information.

•Help/SPOT Assist* - Request help from friends and family or professional service providers every 5 min for 1 hour. Custom Type & Send messages can be sent with a Help/Assist message for more detailed personal help.
* SPOT Assist subject to availability.

•Check-in/OK - Send a Predefined Message or custom Type & Send message allowing your friends and family to get a message from you with your GPS location virtually anywhere on the globe. With a push of a button a message is sent via email or SMS to a contact group. You can also send your Check-in/OK messages to social sites like Facebook or Twitter.

•Track Progress - This feature allows you to send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress in near real time using maps. With your SPOT account you have the ability to set up a SPOT Shared Page which allows you to show your SPOT GPS locations to others on a map. (Additional service required).

The SPOT Connect App extends the functionality of Android devices while making available new features for customers. Custom messages can now be composed and sent on-the-go. Users can store up to 14 Predefined messages and 10 personal contract groups consisting of up to 50 contacts each. Additionally, the SPOT Connect App turns your devices into a satellite messenger utilizing SPOT Connect’s onboard GPS and satellite transmitter. Users can even send location-based messages to Facebook and Twitter from isolated regions such as mountainous terrain and areas off-shore.

    The app. will let me select a contact, then when I select a message or type a message, the contact disappears. I cannot get contact and message on screen at same time. So no sending anything. Still needs work.

    The app has never been without problems. Constant crashes. Sometimes occasional sometimes non stop. For a safety device this really is unacceptable. Updated software to this apparent new Stable version and its the worst yet. After update all my sync data

    Since update unable to sync account. Spot app keeps crashing. Tried different device, exactly the same. Sort it out! Little, or no, support either.

    This has the potential to be such a great app, however the Bluetooth connection issues are horrible I'm on my 3rd unit and am using a different phone also in over a year with the same issues in both phones and devices, rebooting phone and device works mos

    Downloaded the app, using a galaxy note 3. The layout is pretty poor, icons overlap does not have the professional feel for a app that could save your life. Could do better as we have to have subscription fees also.

    Will be asking for a total refund on annual subscription. I need a tracking device for work travel to remote areas and need a device which could save my life this in not such a device. Only works when it likes not reliable which I need

    Took a few hours of learning sequence of what to reboot in what order before finally getting the Connect paired. Great, but what next? The application just sits there on the pairing page, which lists the Connect okay, but won't proceed to the application
