Globalstar Europe Satellite Services, a provider of satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, announces that SPOT Gen4™, the new generation of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger, is now available in EMEA. SPOT Gen4 offers many new features including an enhanced, more detailed mapping interface with more display options, improved product specifications for water resistance, and geofencing capability, among others.

SPOT Gen4 is the newest member of the award-winning SPOT satellite-enabled tracking and safety product portfolio. It provides users with ubiquitous reliable tracking and a vital line of communication with colleagues, friends and family, and emergency support enabled by Globalstar’s second generation satellite fleet in Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

SPOT Gen4 features include:

  • Upgraded IP68 rating – Offers increased water resistance, up to 30 minutes at two meters in water
  • Motion activated tracking – SPOT Gen4 sends tracks at a chosen rate for as long as the device is turned on and moving, conserving battery life.

  • Shared view enhancements – Unlimited shared views with easy interface to share a location
  • Customised position icons – Ability to distinguish location points by SPOT product or user, thereby helping to optimise field and remote resource management
