Just What is The Spot X?

Just What is The Spot X?

The Spot X bridges a gap between the older GPS tracking devices and the newer Hot Spots that provide voice, text and some e-mail capability. We are seeing a fair amount of excitement about the new Globalstar Sat-Fi 2 which does voice, text, e-mail, weather, social media and lite web browsing. Our walleye fishermen, however, are a little concerned about the complexity of that level of communications, and having to have your smart phone to communicate through the hot spot. What happens if your smart phone runs out of power or gets wet?

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.
