Sorry - SPOT cannot do that - it does NOT connect to your computer -

You program a basic message when you set up your SPOT account - in my case "All is fine I am here "  and when I hit the okay button the SPOT sends that message via the global star satellite packet network which arrives at pre-programmed email addresses in my case my wife's email - and only gives her the basic message I programmed and my location .

It is not a two way system - it can be thought of as a beacon

For email / text etc you need to look at other systems.

Good luck !
