GlobaFone, a leading provider of satellite communications solutions announced today that it has begun shipping the revolutionary new GPS messenger product known as SPoT. The SPoT product and services are designed to enhance safety and is particularly valuable to people who work alone in the field, are in remote locations with no communications, and outdoor enthusiasts - people who hike, bike, hunt, kayak and snowmobile, among other outdoor sports. SPoT provides all of these people with a crucial source of communication to family, friends, and if needed, emergency services. SPoT works completely independent of cellular coverage and in locations where cellular doesn’t work at all.

"GlobaFone has a strong reputation of providing our clients with results-oriented solutions,” said GlobaFone President Lou Altman. “We look forward to helping save lives.” Other GPS devices tell YOU where you are. Contrast that with SPOT that tells OTHER people where you are. The customer is able to pre-script messages and e-mail or SMS delivery options. Said Altman, “This is a key product differentiator and key to helping save lives. If you are injured, you already know where you are. An injured or lost person needs to tell other people where they are and that you need help.”

Designed primarily for hikers, backpackers, hunters, snowmobilers and other outdoor enthusiasts who are often out of cell phone range, SPoT’s features of Check-In, Tracking, Help and Alert 9-1-1, are especially compelling. SPOT enables users, based on varying levels of need, to send messages to friends, family, or emergency responders, and to visually track the location of the SPOT Satellite Messenger:

  • The 9-1-1 button lets the user notify emergency responders of their GPS location
  • The Help button sends a non life-threatening help request to family and friends
  • The OK button allows the user to tell family and friends that they are OK
  • The OK button also enables real-time tracking locations to be displayed via Google Maps(tm)

Weighing just more than seven ounces and priced at less than U.S. $150, the SPOT Satellite Messenger is a perfect GPS accessory for the more than 60 million backpackers, campers, hikers, snowmobilers, hunters ice and rock climbers, extreme skiers, snow-shoers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
