Thread: GPS Emergency Locator*- SPOT3 or Simlar

    GPS Emergency Locator*- SPOT3 or Simlar

    I have decided that my current lone working plan is a little out of date and was thinking of buying the Spot 3 locator. However, I'm not keen on the additional monthly/annual add-on costs associated with these products. Can anyone advise on a similar one off payment device that has a SOS emergency button, tracking facility and capability to contact some one if non emergency assistance is required.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have a smartphone? There are a few personal locator apps.

    I have an IPhone but didn't didn't think they had the following function - SOS In an emergency, transmit an SOS with your exact location to GEOS emergency response Coordination Centre to activate a rescue.

    Delorme Inreach SE. Two way proper text messaging via Iridium. Cheep plans and pay only for the months you use it. Basic tarif $14 a month for 10 free messages or unlimited pre set messages. Weather messages tailored for your current location.
    Explorer model is more expensive but can be used as a GPS also.
    I use mine for stalking or solo hiking trips around Dartmoor were there is no cell coverage oh and for travel abroad - No roaming costs!
    Not to mention the all important SOS function to GEOS.
