Go on a Treasure Hunt with SPOT Written by Hiking Camping on August 5th, 2011

We all know that treasure hunts are fun…. And SPOT LLC, the satellite messaging service, has decided that a treasure hunt is the perfect way to get the public involved in their products. To be a part of the action all you’ve got to do is own a SPOT device and go to the following website to register: http://checkpointspot.com/.Once registered, all you’ve got to do is go to one of the locations on the map and “check in”.There are tons of sweet prizes from companies such as WigWam, Salomon, Suunto and Timberland (and that’ just a few name drops).

And let’s not forget the incredible products that SPOT is creating to make the wild wild wilderness safe for all:

The SPOT Connect: By far one of the coolest Satellite devices to come on to the market. Here’s what Spot’s website has to say about it:

No cell signal? No problem. When you venture beyond the cellular network, SPOT Connect turns your smartphone into a satellite communicator. Simply pair your iPhone or Android-based smartphone with SPOT Connect and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send custom messages and GPS coordinates from some of the most remote regions on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. And in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message providing detailed information requesting emergency assistance to your location.

SPOT Satellite GPS messenger: Then there’s also this Satellite bad boy that is one of Spot’s most popular pieces:

The SPOT Messenger sends GPS-based pre-defined messages via satellite to select contact groups including family, friends and co-workers and allows others to track their location in near real-time on Google Maps™. In an emergency, SPOT will transmit an SOS message alert to an International Emergency Rescue Coordination Center with the SPOT owner’s GPS location.

SPOT Connect will be available in our store very shortly (Don’t worry! we’ll let you know when it gets here)… For now we have the SPOT Satellite GPS messenger available in store and on our website. Now…. maybe it’s time to stop reading and start hunting for some treasure!
