**SOLD **SPOT Gen3 satellite GPS Tracker/ Messenger
« on: February 27, 2016, 01:42:51 am »
I got a new SPOT Gen3 from SPOT booth at the International Motorcycle Show so I am selling my old unit (which is identical to the new one). Unit works great, No issues at all. Retails new for $150, selling for $65 shipped in the lower 48. I will include all the contents that come with the unit when sold new. The annual subscription fee for the service through Spot is $149.  Below is the info on the unit from SPOT

 When your adventures take you beyond cell service, SPOT Gen3 lets family and friends know you're ok or sends emergency responders your GPS location, all at the push of a button. Add this rugged, pocket-sized device to your essential gear and stay connected wherever you roam. Long live adventure.
Enhanced Services ONLY available with SPOT Gen3:

SPOT Gen3's customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic, Unlimited or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do. (This is a great new battery-saving feature!)

New Tracking Options:

Unlimited Tracking Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn't stop until you do.

Extreme Tracking Get all of the great features of Unlimited Tracking, but with the added ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 ½ minutes. Don't miss a step with increased track rates!
Enhanced Features ONLY available with SPOT Gen3:
Longer Battery Life SPOT Gen3 has approximately twice the battery life of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger!

Battery Options Now there are more options for how you power your SPOT:
4 AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x Batteries (L92)
4 AAA Energizer® NiMH reusable batteries (NH12)
Line power with a 5v USB connection. (SPOT Gen3 is not waterproof when line powered.)
Basic Features included with your SPOT Gen3:
 
S.O.S.: With the push of a button, GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center provides your GPS coordinates and information to local response teams - for example contacting 9-1-1 responders in North America and 1-1-2 responders in Europe The S.O.S. button is for emergencies only.

Check In: Let family and friends know you're ok when you're out of cell phone range. Send a pre-programmed text message with GPS coordinates or an email with a link to Google Maps™ to your contacts with your location. With a push of a button, a message is sent via email or SMS to up to 10 pre-determined contacts and your waypoint is stored in your SPOT account for later reference. Your stored waypoints can be easily integrated into a SPOT Shared Page or SPOT Adventure account.

Help/SPOT Assist: Alert your personal contacts that you need help in non-life-threatening situations. Or, use SPOT Assist for professional services on land. (Additional service required).

 icon
Custom Message: Stay in touch while off the grid by sending your custom message. Set up a message before leaving to send to contacts with your GPS location. Use this feature as a secondary OK message or transfer your personal help alert to this message function if you are using a SPOT Assist service on your Help button.

Tracking: Allow friends and family to follow your progress online in near real-time and save waypoints so you can review your entire route at a later date.

In my opinion, PM order is the priority, so if yours went out at 2am, Faisal, then you have dibs. I'd take your Spot 1 off your hands, no problem.
