A lengthening list of goodies.
Looking through marine catalogues, I have just seen the new handheld SPOT connect devices which allow messaging and tracking via satellite, along with emergency comms, which use the Iridium network.
I don't think these devices are designed to replace EPIRBS or satellite phones, but they do seem to be sensible additions, in theory.
Having been away from the cruising scene for some time, I have not seen such technology before.
Anyone with any thoughts, or experience with this technology?
I would like to know if this is a must-have, a merely desirable, or a waste of time.
PS. I have posted a few photos of the boat under the album title Sandettie.
