Staying connected with friends and family has taken on a whole new meaning with social media & smartphone technology that was unthinkable even a handful of years ago. But traditional technology limits us to the reach of cell phone towers that rarely penetrate into many wilderness areas so many of us enjoy. The new SPOT Connect changes all of that by allowing you an easy and fun way to keep you in touch with friends, family, and if the need were to arise--emergency services.
With SPOT Connect you can bridge your Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android phones (via a Bluetooth connection) and be directly connected to a global satellite network that allows you to send text messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Even cooler, you can update your Twitter and Facebook statuses, too! Say you have a flat tire, there is also an option to request non-emergency assistance from professional service providers. And if you find yourself in a serious emergency, send an almost instantaneous SOS message requesting emergency assistance. All with the touch of a button using SPOT Connect!
