SPOT Connect Smartphone Satellite Communicator
No cell signal? No problem! Turn your smartphone into a satellite communicator with SPOT Connect.
Today's smartphones provide a level of social connection far beyond what we imagined just a few years ago. But when you go beyond the reach of the grid, your smartphone needs the help of SPOT Connect to keep you in touch with friends, family, and emergency personnel. Simply pair your smartphone with SPOT Connect, and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. Request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance.
SPOT Connect allows you to send messages from remote locations all over the world or even the park down the street that has a gap in cell phone coverage.
How It Works:
- Download the SPOT app and pair your Smartphone with SPOT Connect via Bluetooth
- SPOT Connect links your Smartphone to communication satellites
- Your Smartphone is now a satellite communicator

- Send your GPS coordinates and emergency message to GEOS
Activate the SOS mode to begin sending your GPS location to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC). Add a custom message to update responders of your condition.
