CES: SPOT Connect Could Save Your Life

January 8, 2011
The SPOT Connect isn't a new game for the iPhone. Nor can you use it to listen to your device's music. It serves one important purpose: to assist you at a time of need when you cannot get a signal on your smart phone.

Simply pair your phone with the SPOT Connect device using Bluetooth and you'll get connected to a global satellite network. Using the device you can send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. You can also use it to send e-mail, text messages and request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And, in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance. Here’s a video from the show floor:

Orders for the SPOT Connect are being taken now for $169.99. Service plans begin at $99 for one year.
