Globalstar launches SPOT X satellite messenger with Bluetooth

Globalstar Europe Satellite Services, a Globalstar subsidiary, has launched its SPOT X two-way satellite messenger with Bluetooth in Europe, Middle East and North Africa. The new model allows users to connect SPOT X to their smartphone over Bluetooth to send and receive email and text messages over satellite using a revamped SPOT X app.

SPOT X with Bluetooth wireless technology offers two-way SMS and email messaging as well as GPS tracking and a one-touch SOS. button that instantly sends the user’s GPS location to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Centre (IERCC) over the Globalstar satellite network. The IERCC then transmits details to local first responders to dispatch help to the user’s precise location. SPOT has played a role in more than 6,900 rescues around the globe, many of which were life-saving.

Users can message directly from the SPOT X device or use the new SPOT X app that also features unlimited use of 14 pre-programmed messages and access to the contacts on a user’s smartphone, making it easy to communicate with family, friends, colleagues or directly with first responders in an emergency.

SPOT X provides users with a permanent phone number, free incoming messages, easy check-in function and a full, backlit QWERTY keypad for intuitive typing and long battery life in both tracking and SOS modes.
