Earthmate PN-60w handheld GPS with SPOT Satellite Communicator

Earthmate 60N-w Spot Satellite Communicator

In case you may have missed, we would like bring this product to your attention as it is not the usual GPS we are used to on the market. Coupled with the SPOT LLC’s Spot Satellite Communicator, Delorme’s Earthmate PN-60w GPS device allows you to send receive text messages via Satellite. Once you type messages, they are relayed to the Spot Satellite Communicator wirelessly and delivered via Satellite. Since you are not dependent on the cellular coverage here, you can send them wherever and whenever you want.

    but you’ll still need a clear line-of-sight to the satellite… something not
    easlity accomplished if you’re in a concrete jungle like Tokyo. :)

    (but very useful if you have to text someone while visiting the Amazon jungle
    or sailing across the Pacific Ocean)

    FYI, Tokyo has several perfectly functional land based networks, so satellite communications aren’t necessary…

    this is probably a more generally useful device than an epirb .. though they’re very useful in an avalanche!
    very useful to drop these into disaster zones.
