Spot Trace launches

ADVERTISEMENT

Louisiana-based Spot, a subsidiary of Globalstar and manufacturer of satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, has launched the new Spot Trace, an anti-theft asset tracking device.



Spot Trace notifies vessel owners via e-mail or text when movement is detected, using satellite technology to provide location-based messaging and emergency notification for on-or off-the-grid communications.



Spot Trace users can view their vessel’s GPS coordinates online in near real-time through Google Maps. It also features customizable tracking, which allows users to track a vessel’s coordinates every 2-and-a-half, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes.



The units start at $99.95, with service plans from $99.99/year and will be available at outdoor retail outlets such as West Marine, Bass Pro Shops and Best Buy, or at www.findmespot.com/trace.
