Globalstar Launches Spot X Across Europe and North Africa
Globalstar Europe Satellite Services, a subsidiary of Globalstar providing satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, revealed that its Spot X two-way satellite communications device is now available across Europe and North Africa.
The latest generation of the Spot family of products, Spot X offers two-way Short Message Service (SMS) and email as well as Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking and an SOS button that sends the user’s GPS location to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Centre (IERCC) over Globalstar’s satellite network. The IERCC then transmits details to local first responders to dispatch help to the user’s location.
According to the release, Spot X is the only satellite messenger on the market to give users a permanent phone number, a check-in function and a backlit QWERTY keypad.
