SPOT communicator

Crunch Gear offers up the next LBS device. The SPOT Communicator is a GPS unit that can send your current position via satellite. The press release shows that the target market is the outdoor enthusiast and field workers who are often outside of cell range. Battery life is pretty good given the lack of screen, just four buttons: Help, On/Off, OK, and 911. Given its orange case, it is great if you want to add a bit of safety in hunting season.
