SPOT X not only offers a life-saving SOS feature that literally calls in the cavalry to your exact location but also offers 2-way GPS messaging, allowing you to send and receive text messages.
While GPS messaging takes longer than a typical cell phone the beauty is its service area… literally anywhere you can get a GPS signal.
Family and friends can also watch your progress via Google Maps interface with a breadcrumb trail left at intervals of your choosing.
You can message to a cell phone number or e-mail address and also send social media updates so others can track your journey. Add to this a built in compass for navigation, backlit keyboard/display and a 10 days-worth lithium battery life with breadcrumbs at 10 minute intervals and you can safely roam free but never be without a lifeline.
The SPOT X will take a beating, is waterproof and doesn’t mind being dropped in the mud or buried in sand.
With month to month service plans you dont have to buy a year’s subscription but rather tailor your service to your adventures.
This truly is a life saving device with over 5000 SOS rescues and counting. The SPOT lineup is cheap insurance and reassurance for friends and family.
