If you are a hiker or a business traveler who frequently ends up in remote areas away from “the grid” but still want to remain connected to the world, the SPOT Connect is right up your alley. Simply pair the SPOT Connect with your phone and you are enabled to tweet, share Facebook updates and even send email. The SPOT Connect works by connecting you to the rest of the world via satellite. If you’re into tracking where you’ve been, the SPOT Connect has you covered there as well since you can see your progress overlaid on a Google map. If you should find yourself in a life threatening situation with nobody around, you can even send an SOS message to emergency responders. Pretty handy. Get one now for $169.99.
