SPOT X | Initiating an SOS

Last Updated: Mar 12, 2019 03:22PM GMT
To Initiate the SOS:
  1. Power on device, lift cover, long press the S.O.S. button for 3 seconds or until S.O.S. screen is displayed, or select S.O.S. from the Main Menu screen and follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. The S.O.S. icon should appear on the Status Bar to indicate that S.O.S. has been initiated (Figure 6).
  3. Once S.O.S. is initiated, GEOS IERCC will be notified of your emergency. SPOT will continuously send S.O.S. notifications with your GPS position to GEOS IERCC every 5 minutes until S.O.S. is cancelled or the SPOT X is powered off.
  4. SPOT will then allow you to communicate 2-Way, via message, with GEOS IERCC by selecting the Text GEOS button.
  5. Upon activating S.O.S., the device will terminate all previously queued messages waiting to be transmitted as well as Navigation, Check In, Social, and Tracking if active. The SPOT X device will be locked down on S.O.S. Mode and you will not be able to send messages to anyone other than GEOS IERCC until S.O.S. is cancelled.
  6. While S.O.S. is active, the SPOT X should remain outside in clear view of the sky with no obstructions in order to maintain network connectivity
