Adventure Calls


After developing a few generations of satellite trackers, SPOT has stepped it up a notch with a satellite phone.

Calls from covered far-flung locales sound as clear and delay-free as typical cell connections. Compact, lightweight design with adjustable headset volume sets it apart from clunky competitors

Limited coverage limits your globetrotting — or at least your ability to call and brag about it. No way to lock keys so the power button doesn’t get pressed inadvertently. Slow data rates limit email and photo sharing

Spot Global Phone


The Spot Global Phone, which debuted earlier this year at CTIA , may be just the gadget for those times when you can't, or don't what to be, away from at all. It doesn't snap photos, it won't run apps, and it doesn't play music, but it will let you...

The Spot Global Phone lets you make calls where you can't get a cellular connection. The interface is easy to use and the simple keypad and controls are well-designed.

The Spot Global's service plans are expensive and its call quality varies wildly. The handset can't receive texts, and its large battery charger is cumbersome.

The satellite-powered Spot Global Phone lets you go far off the grid, just as long as you keep your cost and performance expectations in check.
