Once again, we are teaming up with Backpacker's Get Out More Tour! Get Out More is a mobile tour that encourages outdoor activity and offers outdoor enthusiasts, like our SPOT customers, free workshops about the latest outdoor gear. The tour will bring the pages of Backpacker Magazine to life. Audiences can see the latest in outdoor gear and apparel in person and get a chance to win outdoor prizes.

It’s not just awards season in Hollywood. Tech magazines and blogs awarded and honored the latest and greatest products unveiled at this year’s CES.
In addition to all the great features on SPOT Adventures, we’ve updated the website and added a few things.

There's been a lot of great feedback on the new DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Communicator. This week, I'd like to share some of the coolest features you might not know about.
Bill, current President of Ruby Valley Search and Rescue and a "retired" Army pilot, is an avid hunter and fisherman. Needless to say, Bill spends a lot of time outdoors; he jokingly states he knows most trees on a first name basis.
Several years ago, Bill developed a preparedness plan, which included having a SPOT device. He even developed a messaging system for friends and family on his contact list: (1) Check In message in the morning and evening to family and friends, (2) Check In messages back to back to let them know he got an elk, and (3) Check In messages back to back to let everyone know that he was headed out of the backcountry.
