SPOT and Globalstar Satellite Products Average 2 Rescues Each Day

Covington, LA, 6/13/2019 8:00:00 AM - As seen in recent coverage, reports have plagued news headlines with stories of missing hikers, some found, others recovered. In the last several weeks, and during the summer months especially, these backcountry occurrences are all too prevalent, but most are preventable when equipped with a SPOT personal tracking device. 
SPOT LLC, a Globalstar, Inc. company (NYSE American: GSAT), is focused on saving lives and has dramatically lowered the cost to own and use its lifesaving devices this summer, amidst peak hiking season. SPOT products have been instrumental in saving lives for over 10 years -- SPOT devices have assisted in saving over 190 hiking related incidents in the past year. In offering the lowest price promotion ever, the company is hoping to generate more awareness of the relatively low cost of carrying a critical communication device when traveling outdoors, providing safety and peace of mind to families and adventurers.
SPOT has launched aggressive summer savings to make its satellite products and services more affordable. Now you can get our life-saving SPOT Gen3® personal tracker for $75 after rebate (a 50% discount) and an instant $100 off an annual service plan. Additionally, SPOT Trace® asset tracker is also 50% off after rebate, and the service plan is also reduced by 50% for all new customers.
“It has never been more important to carry a SPOT satellite device when traveling outdoors since it’s the easiest way to alert help in an emergency. From the Himalayas to Arkansas, hikers are finding themselves in need of Search and Rescue and SPOT devices send GPS coordinates directly to emergency responders with one push of the S.O.S. button,” says Globalstar CEO, David Kagan. “We are helping adventurers stay safe this summer by offering our best deal ever. SPOT products connect to the Globalstar Satellite Network keeping you connected to the people and resources that matter most.”
Since 2008, SPOT and Globalstar products have been responsible for rescuing 1,871 hikers and over 6,600 including all activities.
