Spot adds SmartPhone Integration at CES 2011

Spot has been a leader in satellite rescue and communication devices. With a Spot device you can send a rescue signal via satellite, for several years now you have also been able to send short text messages as well through Spot devices. Now your smartphone can interact with a new Spot device essentially turning your smartphone into a Satellite Communicator.

This will allow people to send text messages to twitter of facebook in non emergency situations to send short updates on your adventures wherever you may be. I have said for a long time that if I was a world traveler that got of the beaten path that I would never leave home without a spot device. While the new integration to your smartphone is cool. The device will still work standalone when your in trouble or if your smartphone battery has died.
