SPOT Satellite Devices -- The Ideal Holiday Gift For The Outdoor Adventurer

COVINGTON, La., Oct. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger™ is a rugged, pocket-sized device that works where cell phones do not, making it the ideal present for the outdoor adventurer on your list. SPOT Connect™ has the additional feature of allowing users to send real-time, on-the-fly messages via text or social media. Hunters, fishermen, skiers, climbers, sailors and bikers will appreciate being able to keep in touch while off-the-grid.

SPOT's satellite technology allows outdoor enthusiasts to stay in touch with family and friends back home throughout their adventure:
  • SPOT Rescues, notifying emergency responders to the user's GPS location in severe situations
  • SPOT Checks In, letting friends and family know the user is okay
  • SPOT Tracks, allowing the user's location to be transmitted in real-time via Google Maps™
  • SPOT Communicates, sending custom messages to personal networks

SPOT, which has facilitated more than 2,000 rescues worldwide, assists in emergency situations by transmitting the user's location via the Globalstar GPS satellite network. The International Rescue Coordination Center receives these transmissions and alerts local first responders.

This holiday season, SPOT is offering two unique ways for users to stay connected. Gift givers can receive a $50 rebate on SPOT Connect purchased between November 15 and December 31, 2012. In addition, SPOT is sharing the gift of adventure with explorers by offering a chance to win a free SPOT Connect plus a year of service, by simply uploading a picture of a favorite remote holiday destination.
