Spot made a splash three years ago when they released the SPOT Personal Tracker, the first personal GPS live tracker with a satellite uplink, meaning it works regardless of cellphone coverage. They followed a year later with the SPOT Messenger, more compact and with a more powerful GPS chipset (uBlox 5). After working with Delorme last year on the Delorme Earthmate with SPOT Communicator, they showed the SPOT Connect at CES earlier this month.

The SPOT Connect is nearly identical to the Delorme SPOT Communicator, same form factor, same uBlox 5 GPS Chipset, but uses Bluetooth instead of 802.15.4 wireless.

Updated September 17th, 2007 - Thanks to forum member "rambler" for spotting, the...Spot Satellite Messenger, a unique GPS tracker that uses a satellite uplink to send its position from anywhere in the world. Apparently it was designed as an emergency device for those who wander in the wilderness not covered by GSM networks, but it can also be used as a "casual" tracker with Google Maps. Its $150 pricing with $99 for a one year subscription seems quite reasonable in light of that. It is due to be launched on November 1st, in the meantime, you can...

... use this thread of the "Tracking" Forums to discuss.
Posted April 21st, 2004 - Our friend Enrico from PocketPC Italia recently published a detailed review of an interesting new device, the CL1 by QQAAXX, a GPS/GSM based Web Locator. The full review is here (in Italian but with many pictures). Such tracking devices are likely to become more readily available in the future, such as the...... SANAV G-19.
