For any avid outdoorsman, trekking outside of cellular range is a common occurrence. And whether it be deep sea fishing or backpacking deep into the unknown, staying connected with friends and family throughout the journey can be imperative to keeping safe.

Thankfully, SPOT X is a 2-way satellite messenger that offers direct communication with Search & Rescue services and those close to you in case of a life-threatening emergency. Also, with SPOT X, you’ll be provided with a personal mobile U.S. number so others can message directly from their smartphone or other SMS devices. Additional features include tracking intervals for others to keep tabs on your whereabouts, a built-in compass, social media connectivity, and a check-in function to let everyone know you’re still safely enjoying the great outdoors.
