SPOT Connect App turns your iPhone into a Satellite Communication Device

Spot LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar Inc., today
announced its SPOT Connect App is now available on the App Store. The
SPOT Connect App pairs iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with SPOT Connect, a little satellite communications device, to allow users to
transmit messages via satellite from virtually anywhere in the world.

The SPOT Connect device provides connectivity to the Globalstar
satellite network for sending location-based messages from areas beyond
cellular phone coverage.

The app sets up a direct Bluetooth wireless
connection between the user's iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and the SPOT
Connect device, allowing them to send custom messages from remote
locations.

SPOT Connect utilizes proven SPOT technology to notify others of one's
GPS location coordinates and current status. By sending a message to
the Globalstar satellite network, the user's selected contacts will
receive a custom 'Type and 'Send' or 'Predefined' message delivered as
an SMS text message or email. SPOT Connect messages contain the user's
latitude and longitude, date, time stamp and a link to Google Maps(TM).
Established SPOT message features include 'Check-in/OK,' 'Help,' 'SPOT
Assist,' 'SOS' and automated 'Track Progress.'

In order to use the SPOT Connect App, a registered SPOT Connect device
is required. The SPOT Connect device retails for $169.99 MSRP and
requires a SPOT Basic Service subscription starting at $99.99 per year.
SPOT Connect is currently available at retail locations in North
America and from online sites specializing in GPS, outdoor recreation
and personal electronics. The Spot Connect app is available on iTunes here .

The Spot Connect device and app are the ideal companion for adventurers. They still can send updates and call for help in case of no cellular reception.
