SPOT Additional Service: SPOT Assist Roadside

SPOT S.O.V. (Save Our Vehicle)

SPOT S.O.V. is a 24/7 roadside vehicle assistance program that gets help for you and your car, SUV, ATV, RV, trailer or motorcycle with the simple push of a button. It doesn't matter how far off the grid you go, you can always count on SPOT S.O.V. to get you out of a jam.


SPOT has partnered with Nation Safe Drivers (NSD) to provide a vehicle assistance program like no other. NSD is one of the largest suppliers of towing and roadside assistance, offering service on even the most obscure and hard to travel roads imaginable. It doesn't matter if the roads are paved , dirt or gravel, NSD partners will be there to save your vehicle.

Unlike OnStar, SPOT sends your messages and GPS locations over communications satellites so you can be located quickly, even when you're outside of cell coverage. Unlike in-car GPS devices, SPOT sends your message and GPS location to others in near real-time and with the push of a single button - no Bluetooth technology or complicated programming required. And as an extra bonus, SPOT is a portable device and can be used even if you stray away from the vehicle.

Enjoy the benefits of SPOT everyday while on the road, but take it with you on your off-road adventures as well!
