Spot Features:

Navigate with Spot:

Using Moving Map Navigation, the map centeres current position and will therefore move with you. This makes it easy for you to navigate visually in your environment. You can either do that with street level maps or in remote areas with maps composed of satellite photos.

You can use Spot's routing feature for navigation as well. It will guide you to a waypoint and give you information on the distance, estimate time of arrival and so on.

Outdoor Activites:

Spot can be used for a wide range of outdoor activities. You can add waypoints/POIs (Point of Interest) to mark you favorite locations or download them from the internet. They will be visualized on the map of your device and simplifies orientation wherever you are.

A built-in tracklogger draws the distance you covered on the map. The Elevation screen will visualize the elevation profile of your track.
