SPOT on Smart phones

Send location-based messages via satellite to others delivered as SMS text or e-mail...
100-0311elec SPOT

SPOT Connect turns a smart phone into a one-way satellite communicator capable of sending messages that include a GPS position to personal contacts and social networks from remote areas beyond cellular coverage. To use it, download the SPOT Connect app, which synchronizes wirelessly via Bluetooth with smart phone operating systems such as Android. SPOT message features are then initiated using the SPOT Connect app on the phone through the satellite transceiver. Using the same protocol as the SPOT personal rescue beacon, this system determines your location and transmits it along with your chosen communication over the Globalstar satellite network. Send location-based messages via satellite to others delivered as SMS text or e-mail, and enjoy other SPOT functions, including full emergency services and check-in notifications. $169.99 plus a required annual subscription service starting at $99.99 per year. www.findmespot.com
