I highly recommend this device for traveling to remote fishing areas.

You buy, sign up for service, and it lets you send 41 character text messages via GPS to people on your contact list (to their email or phones via SMS). It does so by a blue tooth connection to your smart phone. Send updates, fishing/weather reports, etc.

It allowed me to track my routes, and allowed other family and friends to see where I was at any time. Most importantly it has a SOS feature that will notify local authorities in an emergency situation. It is also waterproof (I wore it on my belt).

Here is a shot of my first message when we arrived at camp.

Viewers can zoom all the way in to see your surroundings up close.

Hint for users: sometimes it gets buggy and your smart phone will not recognize the device. I simply turned my smart phone off then on again and it would connect (iPhone).
