Whether you want to check in, make calls or monitor your prized possessions beyond the boundaries of cellular, SPOT uses 100% satellite technology to keep you connected to the people and things that matter most, all while using the world's most modern satellite network.
SPOT Trace uses 100% satellite technology to track anything, anytime, anywhere, making it the ultimate anti-theft device for cars, trailers, motorcycles and other valuable assets. Every 26 seconds a vehicle is stolen.* Millions of dollars' worth of registered and unregistered assets are taken from law-abiding citizens annually, never to be seen again.

Custom tracking options allow you to select the rate at which updates are sent – every 2½, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes. Additional notification features, such as power off and daily status messages, are included with Basic Service. SPOT Trace's battery life of up to 18 months and available line power option lets users confidently monitor assets on and off the grid, in near real-time using Google Maps or via the SPOT App. For a limited time, SPOT Trace is available for $50 (after mail in rebate is applied), plus an annual service subscription starting at $99.99 (upgraded service plans are available).
