Have you ever been in place where you needed to be able to communicate but there was no cell signal. Maybe you go ,ountain biking in remote areas or drive you 4x4 Titan in the mountains. Now there's one way you can always be sure to make a connection and that's through a satellite. With the SPOT Connect device you can turn your Smartphone into a satellite communicator capable of a connection to the world from almost anywhere you can see the sky.
The SPOT Connect is a small module you pair with your Smartphone. Using an app (Android already available, iPhone coming soon) you make the connection to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Once connected you update Twitter and Facebook, send email and text messages or request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And when things get critical you also can send an SOS message for emergency assistance. You also can track and store your progress using Google Maps or your SPOT Adventure page.
New this spring, the SPOT Connect costs $169.99
plus a required subscription service starting at $99.99 per year.
