SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger

While you’re probably familiar with SPOT, their recently released personal satellite messaging and emergency communication system features a compact package that’s 30-percent smaller and lighter than the original. Providing enhanced GPS performance, SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger keeps friends, family and rescuers informed and relays your precise latitude and longitude to one of 48 orbiting satellites every 10-minutes. Water and shock-resistant, the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger provides a vital line of communication virtually anywhere in the world, even where cell phones don’t—all with the push of a button. Weighing only 5.2 ounces, the new SPOT features an advanced chipset, GPS acquisition and message sending notification, a separate tracking button, extra custom message and safety covers for the SOS and HELP buttons. Suggested retail price is $169 with annual service subscription required. SPOT, www.findmespot.com
