How to configure your SPOT device for use with GAP

Step 1

Login to the SPOT portal at https://login.findmespot.com and enter your login credentials.

Step 2

Select the “My Devices” tab.

Hover your mouse over the “Contact Details” alongside the device you wish to configure. A “View/Edit” link will appear which you must click. The “Settings” page will appear for the device.

Please note that you must not change the name of your device. It should be of the form 0-1234567. This identifier is known as the ESN and is used by GAP to identify your device.

Step 3

In the “Showing Profile” section of the page, click the “Edit” link on the “Check-in/OK” grey heading.

To add an email address, click the “Add Email” link alongside the envelope icon. A new dialog box will appear.

If you are using the US data center enter spot.<tenant>@gap-us-1.globalalerting.com and click “OK”, where “<tenant>” is your tenant identifier given to you. If you are using the Australian data center enter spot.<tenant>@gap-au-1.globalalerting.com and click “OK".

If you are unsure what this should be then please contact your service provider. You may also edit the message that is sent by entering your text into the “Message To Send” box.

Click the orange “Save” button.

Step 4

In the “Showing Profile” section of the page, click the “Edit” link on the “Help” grey heading.

To add an email address, follow the procedure in Step 3.

Click the orange “Save” button.
