Roger Lee Posted April 21, 2011 Report Share Posted April 21, 2011 Spot has new technology. The Spot Connect will bluetooth to your phone. If you have no phone service no problem. The Spot sends your signal or text via satellite right from the phone. Retail is $169.99. If 5 people here wanted them I'm sure we can work something out like the last few Spot orders. I would need an email from whom ever would like one to see who is interested. Every thing is the same for spot connect as it is for Spot other than with connect we charge for the Type & Send messages. The cost of this messaging is: first 5 free, .50 ea, 100 for $30 or 500 for $50. Let me know if I can help out.
