The Club has a SPOT Gen3 GPS locator beacon for loan by members on rides to update family and friends by pre-formatted text message to (1) Check In, (2) Custom message including GPS location, or (3) Require assistance including GPS location. A 4th SOS message sends a message and GPS location to GEOS SPOT HQ who then inform the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (www.amsa.gov.au), Australia's terrestrial and offshore emergency response coordinating agency.
