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.

    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

    Satellite Communications Sorted

    Used as a back up emergency contact system when travelling outside telephone coverage areas with my motorcycle. This unit uses satellite systems to send SMS messages to my family in the event that communication is needed when the telephone does not function. Also links to a web and mobile application that allows my family to track my progress in live time whilst I am travelling. Ensures their peace of mind as well as back-up support for me. About the size of a modern mobile phone, this unit is very light. Contains a rechargeable lithium battery. I will also use this when our new caravan arrives and we start touring the country! Excellent prompt service from Johnny Appleseed as always. Seamless ordering, dispatched within 24 hours and arrived at my home two days later.

    Pros: Excellent option when there is no mobile (cell) coverage

    Works as advertised.

    Works as advertised. I find Spot's purchase and plan prices to be more appealing than Garmin's offerings. Plus I know from experience how painful it is to use a cursor control to enter a message - the keyboard is a must.

    Pros: Keyboard
    Cons: Possibly short battery life, but yet to be confirmed

    Versatile Spot Tracker

    Having the capability of being able to construct and send messages gives the Spot X more versatility than the Spot Tracker predecessors. Have used Spot Trackers for many years in many countries and like the product but this added capability gives you the opportunity to communicate and plan changes, any specific assistance you may need etc. Great improvement.

    Pros: Capability of messaging is a big improvement on Spot Tracker
