Enhanced Services only available with the SPOT GEN3:

SPOT Gen3's customized tracking features takes your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic, Unlimited or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do. (This is a great new battery-saving feature! 

And, if you upgrade to Unlimited or Extreme Tracking you don't have to remember to re-set your tracking after 24 hours.)
