As I am getting a little older I have been considering getting a E-Spot GPS emergency notification device. How do they do it out west ? Satellite phones ?

Check out some of Garmin’s stuff. You can send and receive texts almost anywhere. A lot less expense than a sat phone.

Those remind me of the Nextel 2 way, look pretty cool, but you’re limited to only others with the same thing correct?

I took it that one could text a phone number from them they run through iridums satellite service for their cellphines but they are Garmin devices. I may be wrong :flushed:

Also check out Andy Cool at Explorer Satellite in Ft Lauderdale. I rent sat phones from him for back country hunting. He has many choices on communication devices and great year end deals.
He might have what you need or great info you can use.
