When we saw the SPOT satellite personal tracker we just knew it was perfect for XC pilots. It’s all our worst nightmare, crashing in a remote location where there is no mobile coverage.
Now you can get peace of mind should you find yourself in this situation anywhere in the world. With SPOT you can contact 911 for emergency assistance, call for help from your designated friends or simply let them know you are OK.
You can also use its 24 hour tracking feature, which allows others to follow your whereabouts over the internet.
SPOT is available now at www.xcshop.com at a special introductory price until the end of March.
