This holiday season, SPOT life-saving technology is HALF OFF at participating retailers (instant savings, offer valid 11/10 – 12/31, 2016). Since 2007, SPOT has initiated over 4,600 rescues worldwide, with a record-setting 115 rescues in July and 119 rescues in August this year alone. Giving the gift of peace of mind for both outdoor enthusiasts and their loved ones back home has never been easier.
SPOT Gen3®’s convenient features like check-ins, tracking, custom messages and S.O.S. to reach emergency responders are all available at the push of a button.
Deb Fuller knows first-hand the importance of having off the grid communication after she activated the S.O.S. feature on her SPOT device while hiking the North American Pacific Crest Trail this summer. According to Fuller, “At a bare minimum, you need to have a personal locator device like SPOT because you never know what is going to happen. If you don’t think you need it, you have a high level of risk tolerance. I think everyone should travel with one for lower risks and safer travels.”
“As a professional hunter and guide there is no better peace of mind for myself and my clients than a SPOT Gen3. As hunters, we sometimes let our guard down to chase the game. SPOT Gen3 is the best tool a hunter could have, knowing you can get help if needed with just the push of a button.” – Brain Keenan, SoCal Guided Hunts
“Whether I am on a fishing adventure with my family and friends or filming an episode of my TV show, The Obsession of Carter Andrews, I travel with my SPOT Gen3. The security and confidence I feel with SPOT allows me to enjoy the adventure that much more.” – Carter Andrews, Angler and TV Host of “The Obsession of Carter Andrews”
In addition to the life-saving technology provided by SPOT Gen3, the inconspicuous SPOT Trace® offers asset tracking and theft recovery for your most valuable assets. SPOT Trace will send a text or email alert if movement is detected, allowing users to follow along on Google Maps™ anytime via phone or computer. Brand new boat owner Raul Gonzalez received an email notification from his SPOT Trace late one night and discovered his boat had been stolen. Gonzalez is grateful he invested in the $99 asset tracker and says, “Purchasing the SPOT Trace was a no-brainer. If it wasn’t for SPOT I would have never gotten the motor back and would have been out of at least $15K! I got really lucky.”
For a limited time this holiday season, SPOT will be 50% OFF at participating retailers. No mail-in rebate will be required. More information, including participating retailers, is here – FindMeSPOT.com/GiftSafety.
