Jaguar SPOT: A Chip Management Solution

Jaguar SPOT, that has been changing the way our timers program their chips. We wanted to create a small, light, and portable product that could program chips in no time! 


So what exactly is Jaguar SPOT? It's a complete solution for managing your timing chips, including programming, verifying, and using as a chip check station. It consists of a small RFID reader with a built-in antenna and standalone software. The reader operates from the USB 3.0 or 3.1 port on your Windows 10/11 computer (tablet, laptop, or desktop), so you no longer need to set up your Jaguar timing system and antenna to program chips or to perform chip check.

Here's what one of our timers had to say about his SPOT experience:

"SPOT has already saved me a massive amount of time and I have only had it a couple of months. It makes programming bibs as painless and quick as possible. Second, the bulk verify ensures that I have actually programmed all the bibs I am taking to the event. Finally, using SPOT’s Race Chip Check feature at packet pickup catches countless errors made by volunteers (and runners) well before the event, instead of us having to deal with them during or after the event. I like to keep things simple and my overhead low, but I would absolutely make the same decision to buy a SPOT again!"
- Zane Holscher, Owner of International Running Company
