“I do extensive work offshore on ships and deliver boats. My SPOT messages to my family and delivery customers have been sent from the Bering Sea, Europe, USA, offshore Atlantic and the Pacific. My family loves the messages, tracks me and goes to bed at night comfortably knowing is all OK.”

SPOT HUG – Satellite-based Security System for your boat*

Using state-of-the-art satellite technology, SPOT HUG monitors a virtual security perimeter around your boat. SPOT HUG will instantly alert the appropriate parties even from remote areas beyond cellular coverage. By establishing a virtual security perimeter around your boat, SPOT HUG detects Unauthorized Movement when your boat moves more than 500 meters without your authority and the key FOB is not present. A notification with the GPS position is automatically sent to the Asset Monitoring Center who alerts local authorities (where available). Connect SPOT HUG to up to 4 monitoring sensors for battery, high water, engine/ignition or other external contacts. SPOT HUG will alert you via SMS and/or email when an event happens. (Additional service required). SPOT HUG provides reliable, location-based messaging via satellite independent of VHF radio. Let loved ones know where you are and that you’re OK or send a message for help in an emergency. Includes SPOT functionality for Check-in/OK, SOS, Help and Track Progress.
