Important SPOT X Tips

  • SPOT X needs a clear view of the sky with no obstructions
  • SPOT X is not reliable at the bottom of a deep canyon, in a cave, in an abyss, or in very dense woods.
  • Before heading off the grid, we strongly recommend that you send a test message to ensure your device was activated properly. You can view your sent messages in your account at FindMeSPOT.com/MyAccount.

Spot X Pricing

Regardless of how far off the grid you go for work or pleasure, SPOT X allows you to select from a variety of Service Plans to best suit your travel and adventures.

SPOT X offers two different service subscription options. Choose either a monthly Flex Plan or annual contract plan. Flex Plans are best for seasonal use and only require a one-month subscription. Annual plans are perfect for get-up-and-go year 'round use with an added benefit of monthly payment. Annual contract plans also have the option for you to pay upfront and get all allotted messages in advance.

Pricing correct as of 29/10/2019. All prices are GST inclusive. Contact Us for more information about Spot Subscriptions.

Last Updated 2019-08-28. Estimated coverage area. Actual coverage may vary. Success rates are forecasts for a SPOT messenger to successfully deliver a single message during a 20-minute period, based on network availability. Additionally, in everyday conditions it is normal for some messages to be blocked by your environment, such as hills or buildings. That 's why the SPOT Messenger is scheduled to automatically send multiple messages in every mode – giving you excellent overall reliability.

    Life saver!!!

    Wife insisted I buy it. I thought it was a waste of money until I crashed off my motorcycle and into a ditch hidden from the road. The group I was riding with could not find me and rode past. Mobile reception was poor and I could not identify where I was. I pressed the SOS button and within an hour Police and Ambulance were able to easily find me. I don't know how long I would have been without it. I spent a week in hospital with 9 broken ribs and am now home alive and recovering.

    Pros: Two way communication, Amable to send check in and pre written messages at no extra charge,long battery life, does what you need it to do
    Cons: Writing on screen small, instructions leave a lot of questions and web searches to get the best out of it.

    Excellent device.

    Easy to initialise and set up. Even the basic configuration is useful. Can be customised easily for own preferences.

    Pros: Easy to set up. Even pre-configured function are useful as is.
    Cons: Slightly larger that I would otherwise prefer for adventure motorcycling, but manageable.

    Very useful tool for peace of mind.

    I have been researching PLB's and satellite messenger devices for a number of months, before I purchased my SpotX. The SpotX Bluetooth is perfect for my needs as a caravan user in sometimes remote locations and gives me peace of mind should I get stuck or have an injury. The App is good but could have a few extra features added to virtually not need the unit's keypad, for example add Contacts/People on the App's front screen. The annual plan is reasonably priced when using the predetermined messages and check-in to multiple emails or mobiles. One criticism is that the on-line interface could be better laid out, for example it is hard to discover that the default predefined messages can easily be modified or deleted and replaced with your own predefined messages. Also, the screen brightness should be adjustable. Overall a great tool, especially when used with a battery powerbank to recharge the unit’s battery when in the outback.

    Pros: Battery life is great, compact size fits in my cargo pants pocket
    Cons: Needs screen brightness adjustment and App tweeking a bit.

    Terrible service battery poor hard to connect to phone.

    Not a good product at all. I will be asking for a refund.cannot trust it’s reliability if I indeed needed it in a emergency. It’s just not a risk for me worth taking with my family.

    Cons: Buttons hard To use. GPS was very intermittent
