The SPOT Satellite GPS messenger is a great holiday gift for adventurers that like to go off the beaten path. SPOT allows adventurers to call for help from almost anywhere, which comes in handy when accidents happen outside of cell phone range. It can also be used to send messages to family friends that say your still alive. The coverage area for the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger includes most of North America, Europe, Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, Australia, and yes even a small part of Antarctica nearest to Australia. Besides most of Antarctica the major areas of no coverage include India and the Eastern and Southern parts of Africa. Sure it might not work everywhere, but it sure works in more places than cell phones and is particularly useful for those doing off the beaten path activities in North America and Europe.
