Duke of Edinburgh's Award Expedition Trackers

We advise you download & read the following documents before using the trackers:

Tracker Device Information for Leaders

Full SPOT User Guide

Team User Guide

Laminated copies of these documents will also be included with the devices when you collect them from Scout House.

Use this form to request the loan of a County Tracker. There is no charge, but all lenders accept full responsibility for the safe return at the end of the expedition.

Each device uses 4 x AAA batteries for power. A set of fully charged batteries will be installed by County Office, which should be more than sufficient for the duration of your expedition.

  • Collecting/Returning the devices

    Select the date and time that you wish to collect the device(s) from Scout House.

    Scout House opening hours are:

    Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 4:30

    County staff require time to set up the device with your contact information, so factor this into your booking (please do not book on Friday evening expecting them to be ready 8:30am the following Monday).

    You can contact us at dofe@northumberlandscouts.org.uk to discuss collection if needed.

    There may be some cases where you can arrange to collect the devices directly from another Leader before an expedition. Please note that if you do this, you are responsible for ensuring the batteries will last the duration of your own expedition. Information regarding batteries can be found in the documents at the top of the page.
