Covington, La. (January 11, 2016) SPOT LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar, Inc., (NYSE: GSAT) and the leader in satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, will be showcasing its affordable satellite communications solutions at the upcoming SHOT Show, January 17-20, 2017. Thousands of hunters have come to rely on SPOT to provide peace of mind for both themselves and folks back home.

As SPOT rapidly approaches 5,000 rescues worldwide, hunters and outdoorsmen continue to rely on SPOT to make it home safely, including two hunters who activated their SPOT device when one badly injured his ankle and could not make it down the mountain, a group of deer hunters who got lost and a young man who was accidently shot while hunting with friends.

“As professional hunters and guides, we and our clients engage in activities that are inherently dangerous; therefore, I want the most reliable emergency communication device available; and for me and my clients, that’s a SPOT Gen3®,” said Brain Keenan of SoCal Guided Hunts.

SPOT is currently being used by customers to initiate almost two rescues a day and delivers location-based messaging and life-saving emergency notification technology to hundreds of thousands of users, completely independent of cellular coverage.

The newest addition to the SPOT family, the $99 SPOT Trace®, offers an affordable and inconspicuous option for tracking high-value assets such as trailers, ATVs, UTVs and boats.  Leveraging satellite-based theft alert tracking technology, users can receive SMS texts or emails when movement is detected. SPOT Trace’s battery life of up to 18 months and available line power option lets users confidently monitor assets on and off the grid, in near real-time via the SPOT App.

  • SPOT Gen3 is a rugged and affordable GPS tracking device providing off the grid messaging, emergency alerts, extended battery life, and extreme GPS tracking upgrade at 2 ½ minute intervals.
  • SPOT Trace is a GPS tracking device allowing users to track anything, anytime and anywhere by receiving theft-alert SMS texts or emails when movement is detected.
  • SPOT Global Phone a portable, easy-to-use and data-enabled satellite phone, provides industry-leading, 2-way crystal clear voice quality where cell service won’t work.
