How it works:

* GPS satellites provide signals.

* Spot messenger’s onboard GPS chip determines your GPS location and sends your location and preselected message to communication satellites.

* Communication satellites relay your message to specific satellite antennas around the world.

* Your location and messages are delivered according to your instructions via email, text message, or emergency notification to the GEOS Rescue Coordination Centre.
