SPOT Connect is a smartphone accessory that provides connectivity to communication and GPS satellites when the phone is outside of its coverage area. SPOT Connect allows the user to send text messages, short emails, status updates to social networking sites, and SOS messages to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center.
Today’s smartphones provide a level of social connection far beyond what we imagined just a few years ago. But when you go beyond the reach of the grid, your smartphone needs the help of SPOT Connect to keep you in touch with friends, family, and emergency personnel. Simply pair your smartphone with SPOT Connect, and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. Request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance.
