When you don’t have cell phone coverage, the SPOT Connect turns your smartphone into a satellite communicator so you can stay connected with friends, family and fans on Facebook and Twitter. This SPOT GPS connector can be used virtually anywhere in the world where you have a mostly clear view of the sky. If you’re in a life-threatening situation, use the SOS function to alert emergency responders. If you run out of gas on a back road, use the Help function to let your spouse know you need a little assistance. With the ability to type and send short messages, the possibilities are endless.
