Globalstar/Spot Offering Free Satellite Products at The Fort Lauderdale Int'l Boat Show

globalstar news Globalstar Inc. and wholly owned subsidiary SPOT LLC, leaders in satellite communication, tracking, messaging and emergency notification technologies, will showcase their respective product lines at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, October 30 – November 3 at booths #310 and #311.  They will also be offering an exclusive Boat Show Special on Globalstar and SPOT products.  See below for more details.

Boating magazine calls Globalstar Sat-Fi™ “one of the must see electronics at the boat show.” With Sat-Fi (MSRP $999), Globalstar customers can use their existing smartphones, tablets and laptops to send and receive communications when traveling beyond cellular. With Sat-Fi, boaters will be able to use their own device to stay connected off the cellular grid, which is critical in times of crisis. Through a convenient smartphone app which enables connectivity between any Wi-Fi-enabled device and the Sat-Fi satellite hot spot, subscribers can easily send and receive email and SMS text messages and make voice calls from their own device.

Globalstar’s lightweight, easy to use voice and data enabled GSP-1700 satellite phone provides industry-leading, crystal clear voice quality for users requiring reliable connectivity outside the range of cellular service. The GSP-1700 (MSRP $499) is the most inexpensive satellite phone available, with plans starting at just $24.99. Globalstar’s GSP-2900 satellite fixed phone system (MSRP $1,499) provides high quality voice and data communications, including Internet, email and voicemail.

Exclusive Boat Show Special:  Get a FREE GSP-1700 ($500 Value) or up to $500 OFF the Globalstar Sat-Fi and the GSP-2900 when activating with a select service plan.

SPOT Trace™ uses 100% satellite technology to track anything, anytime, anywhere, making it the ultimate theft-alert tracking device for boats and other valuable assets. With Trace, users can receive theft-alert SMS texts or emails the moment movement is detected. Additional notification features, such as power off and daily status messages, are included with Basic Service. SPOT Trace’s battery life of up to 18 months and available line power option lets users confidently monitor assets on and off the grid, in near real-time using Google Maps or via the SPOT App. SPOT Trace retails for $99.95, plus an annual service subscription starting at $99.99 (upgraded service plans are available).  Waterproof DC Power Cable accessory available.
SPOT Gen3™, the next generation of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger™, offers enhanced functionality with more tracking features, improved battery performance and more power options including rechargeable and USB direct line power. SPOT Gen3 features include: custom tracking (2 ½, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minute tracking intervals available), motion-activated tracking, continuous tracking and extended battery life. Paired with the SPOT App, users can easily view their SPOT messages and show their track points via smartphone or tablet. SPOT Gen3 retails for $149.95, plus a required annual service subscription starting at $149.99 per year (upgraded service plans are available).
