  1. Wow, that looks great you got to love technology stuff like this just keeps getting smaller and better. I have grown up in remote areas and have had a few close calls because I could not contact anyone, now they have this, could be a live saver worth every cent as far as I am concerned.

    • It really is impressive how much they can pack into these devices while making them smaller. I too have lived in remote areas and hiked a lot with no help nearby and it took be 30 plus years to get smart enough to always keep a satellite messenger with me know when heading into the mountains.
