External Antenna InputWith the new Spider 7 you can plug an external antenna directly into the Spider allowing it to be used in more complex aircraft with anti-icing features that traditionally have caused issues for GPS signal.
External KeypadWith the new external keypad, you can mount the Spider 7 discretely out of the way but still have access to the Spider's main controls.
RadiusRadius suspends position reports in a defined circular area around your current location. Normal tracking will resume once you leave that area. The radius distance can be activated in flight with the pre-set suspension distance customized online.
Altitude EventsKnow when something isn't right. Your aircraft can now alert you to changes in altitude and send position updates in real time.
SpidertxtSend and receive SMS messages via your Spider by connecting an iOS device through Bluetooth.
PortableGPS and Iridium antennas are integrated no external aerials required. TheSpider plugs into the aircraft cigarette lighter outlet for quick interchange between aircraft/vehicles, or it can be hard-wired. Typically no STC required.
Iridium Satellite NetworkGlobal coverage is provided in real-time by 66 low earth orbit satellites, with information reaching the website in as little as 5 seconds.
SOSThe SOS button on the keypad can be used in an emergency to send instant alert messages to your pre-set emergency contacts.
WatchActively track the aircraft as it sends position reports to the website. If an incident occurs and the Spider loses power, the website will automatically send an SOS message after 15 minutes of no communication.
Mark Button & NotificationsPress the Mark button to send position reports manually, or set automatic takeoff and landing notifications through the website. Send up to four pre-set email and SMS messages through the website when a report is triggered.
GeofenceSpecify tracking boundaries in up to five circular areas and set custom update rates or suspend position reports automatically when inside these areas. This can reduce the cost of operation when flying in areas where tracking is not necessary.
Spidertracks AFF/APIAllows you to send tracking data to third parties in real time, including US Forest Service, or share information with maintenance tracking software.
The Spider 7 also contains more advanced hardware which will allow future features to be released to your existing platform.
