This portable satellite tracker can give you a vital line of communication when you want it, and can connect with emergency assistance if you need it.
Using satellite technology, the tracker works where cell phones don't.
Two subscription services are available. For $99 per year, you get a 24/7 link to emergency service, and can also send pre-programmed personal messages to up to 10 contacts via e-mail or phone text messaging.
For an additional $49 a year, friends and family can track your trip progress via Google Maps.

Functional Specifications SPOT features four key functions that enable users to send messages to friends, family or emergency responders, based upon varying levels of need:
Alert 9-1-1: Dispatch emergency responders to your exact location. SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes until power is depleted or 911 is cancelled.
Ask for Help: Request help from friends and family in your exact location. SPOT sends one message every 5 minutes for one hour or until Help is cancelled.
Check In: Let contacts know where you are and that you're okay. SPOT sends three identical messages to the SPOT service for redundancy. The first of those three messages is delivered.
Track Progress: Send and save your location and allow contacts to track your progress using Google Maps. SPOT sends one message every 10 minutes for 24 hours or until SPOT is powered off.
