Spot Messenger - Personal Satellite Tracker
One of the best gadgets for the true adventurer is the SPOT messenger. In an emergency the SPOT can be used to send a SOS and GPS location to 911 (US) or 211 (Europe) services. The signal can work without a GPS location as well and will send duplicate notifications to friends or family (your SPOTteam). SPOT is handy even without a life threatening emergency though- it can be used to ask for help from your SPOTteam, check in with an all's ok, or track progress. SPOT runs on highly reliable network and messages can be sent to both email and SMS cell phones. Spot covers almost all the globe except for the poles, the southern half of Africa and the Middle East.
