Once you have purchased your SPOT Tracker you must sign up on-line with SPOT for the basic service plan. (https://login.findmespot.com/spot-main-web/activation/index.html) plus the additional “Track Progress” plan that enables your unit to provide continuous tracking. The steps are:

SPOT owner, it is easy to add Track Progress to your Basic Plan Service.
Simply purchase Track Progress during the registration process.
Current Customers: Log into your account, go to the MY SPOT Device tab and simply add the Track Progress Service to the SPOT unit of your choice. This will automatically add the Track Progress Services to your selected SPOT Messenger and charge the credit card on file. This
Service will be prorated so you only have one renewal date for all your services.

If you only see one single track message then you either forgot to hit the “Footprint” button on the tracker or you did not select the “Track Progress” option when you set up your account with SPOT.
