Set to hit stores next month, the DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w with SPOT Satellite Communicator is the first handheld GPS in the world that enables Type and Send text messaging via satellite. Here’s how it works: the Earthmate connects wirelessly with the SPOT Satellite Communicator, where all messages composed on the PN-60w’s internal keyboard can be relayed via satellite for delivery thanks to established SPOT technology. No cell signal is required, as it uses satellite technology – you can call for help, or just keep in touch with friends and family. Not only does it let you stay in touch, but it’s also durable, so it will stand up to the toughest climates out there. And with its established SPOT technology, you can track your travels via online topographic maps. Other features include Topo North America 9.0. Stay in touch anywhere for $699.95. DeLorme.
