SPOT & DeLorme Receive "Best In Show" Award At Outdoor Retailer

OR_Awards_2010The twice-annual Outdoor Retailer trade show is an exhibition of the best outdoors equipment in the world. New in 2010, GearJunkie.com launched an inaugural “Best in Show” award for the Summer Market trade show, held in early August. From featherweight tents to portable power generators, these items exemplify innovation and new thinking in the world outdoors. SPOT received the award for the DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator.

“After four days in Salt Lake City at the show — and some early product tests — we’ve picked a list of to-be-released innovative products you’ll see on the market,” said Stephen Regenold, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of GearJunkie.com. “The PN-60w with SPOT combo provides first-of-its-kind GPS and satellite messaging features indeed worthy of recognition.”
