No cell signal? No problem. SPOT Connect provides connectivity to global communication satellites for sending custom text messages from the backcountry even far beyond cellular coverage.

By downloading the SPOT Connect App, SPOT Connect can wirelessly synch via Bluetooth with iPhone and most Android-based smartphones. New features include custom text messages, storing multiple pre-defined messages and contract groups and the ability to update Facebook and Twitter from remote locations. In a critical emergency send an SOS message for help. 

Rugged and portable, SPOT Connect uses 2 AA Lithium batteries and includes a stand-alone SOS button.

SPOT Connect retails for $169.99. Service subscription required.
