I just received a West Marine Ad, promoting this product. The SPOT Satelite Messenger. Here's how there ad reads; "Using an array of low-earth orbitiing satellites, the SPOT can tranmit messages with three levels of urgency to your choice of up to ten email addresses and/or mobile phones. The SPOT has a built-in GPS, your messages are tagged with your precise position, allowing the recipients to quickly identify your position on Google Earth." Here's their link,
This is a great safety device that perhaps could be used in the wrong manner in tournament fishing.
