Globalstar Canada Satellite Co., a leading provider of mobile
satellite voice and data services, today announced the new SPOT
Trace(TM) - the ultimate anti-theft asset tracking device. SPOT Trace
ensures cars, motorcycles, boats, ATVs, snowmobiles and other
valuable assets are where they need to be, notifying its owners via
email or text when movement is detected anytime, anywhere. SPOT's
growing family of products use 100% satellite technology to provide
location-based messaging and emergency notification for on or off the
grid communications. 
"SPOT Trace is a cost effective tracking product that will give loyal
SPOT users and new users across the globe assurance that their
personal assets are safe," said Jay Monroe, CEO and Chairman of
Globalstar. "SPOT Trace is the latest advancement in our commitment
to build products that reach an audience beyond the traditional
mobile satellite service user that are relevant to millions of people
globally."  
SPOT Trace users can view their boat, ATV, motorcycle or other
asset's GPS coordinates online 24 hours a day in near real-time
through Google Maps(TM). With multiple mounting options, SPOT Trace
is small and durable enough to be placed practically anywhere. With
up to 18 months of battery life, affordable rate plans and satellite
coverage that goes beyond the reach of cellular coverage, there is no
comparable product on the market to track anything, anytime,
anywhere. Some other SPOT Trace features include: 


 
--  Tracking. View your asset's GPS coordinates from your smartphone or
    online 
--  Movement Alerts. Receive texts/emails when SPOT's vibration sensor
    detects your asset has new movement 
--  Dock Mode. Configure your device to track an asset that is primarily
    stored on the water 
--  Power Off Message. Receive a notification if your device is powered off 
--  Low Battery Message. Receive a notification when the device's batteries
    are low 
--  Status Message. Receive a once per day alert to let you know your asset
    is secure 

 
SPOT Trace also features customizable tracking, which allows users to
track an asset's GPS coordinates at 2 1/2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minute
intervals. The units will sell for an MSRP of CDN$119.99, with
service plans from CDN$99.99/year.
