Review on SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SPOT. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever been driving along a back road or late at night in an area with spotty or no cell service? My husband and I had that nightmare happen to us one night. We were on the Interstate coming home from a Phil Collins' concert (Yes, we're wild ones!) when our SUV started making a grinding noise, then stopped. NOW WHAT? I pulled out our cell phone to call 9-1-1. I got one bar and got far enough to say we were broke down, when we lost service. It was a scary hour before the State Police found us and called a tow truck and a family member to get us home.

If we had the SPOT Satellite GPS messenger, we would have been home much sooner and been warmer. We live in Pennsylvania, in a small town that doesn't have the greatest service out there. This GPS Messenger is also good for backpacking through the National Forest or when we're camping or canoeing. Using 100% satellite technology, SPOT works virtually anywhere in the world, even where cell phones don’t – all with the push of a button.  Pretty neat, huh? Prett

Right now, for the holiday season, if you buy the SPOT Satellite GPS messenger, you receive a bonus adventure kit worth $50. The kit includes a coupon for 15% off Basic Service, flotation case for SPOT, micro LED flashlight, safety tips bandana, lanyard, safety whistle and a carabineer keychain.

I really appreciate this review, Gretchen. Here in rural southwest Virginia cell service is very spotty because of the rugged terrain and mountain ridges of the Blue Ridge. I love wandering in the back country on shooting trips. I have physical disabilities and a fall or mechanical breakdown could quickly become a survival situation, especially since calling for help would probably not be an option with my cell.

Well if that isn't the coolest gadget ever, and I love it's small size, too. You could carry that in a little pocket. There are 4 different places that carry it in Richmond. I don't do hiking anymore (yeah, the old bag again) but I get lost at the drop of a hat and my regular gps doesn't do all this great stuff. Gee, do I see something here to put into my own stocking Dec 25th? Lol, I just can't keep my own wish list a secret from myself ;)
