28 May Just What is The Spot X?
The Globalstar Spot X provides the usual tracking, check-in and SOS service offered by the Spot 2 and Spot 3, but it also offers two-way free-form texting. Before your trip you can enter a long list of e-mail and text contacts, as well as a few dozen messages that you might want to send (like listing various check points, etc.). This makes everything a lot faster and easier as you send these messages along the way, but you can also compose a new text (maybe you are diverting to a new extraction point, maybe you need a part for your car), send that text, and receive a reply from your contact. If you don’t need voice, the Spot X is an easy to use and very reliable bridge to social and emergency communications.
