  1. Hello

    Very interesting your article

    I enjoy traveling and most of all I like places far from culture SPOT X is a tool I will definitely need and will take me out of the mess of not settling with my own people

    It has a lot of good specifications, is waterproof and withstands low temperatures and high temperatures and the bulk is small and lightweight even provides your personal US mobile number

    I think all your tips are timely and very useful.


    • Thank you for the great comments. I like the unique U.S. mobile number also. The more time I spend in the outdoors and the more stories I hear of people needing to be rescued, the more I don’t want to leave home for one of my adventures, without a satellite device with an SOS function. The great thing is, you can use this device if you were involved in a bad accident deep in the mountains, where no one was around or caught in a blizzard.
