It doesn't matter if you are hiking thru the wilderness of Australia or simply stuck in a dead zone with your carrier. When you need to get connected, you need a signal…now. Cue in satellite hubs; these devices will not only help your call go thru, but they have the ability to connect to your phone wirelessly via Bluetooth...

Spot Connect
The device transform your regular phone into a satellite communicator. We like that the only thing you need to do, is to pair the device to your phone via bluetooth; and right away, you get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from anywhere on the planet. You can even update Twitter and Facebook status, send and receive emails and texts. In the event of an emergency, there is an automated SOS message system for requesting help. This is a must if your next vacation includes a trip to the Amazon forest or a Photo Safari in the Kilimanjaro.

USG-BT359C GlobalSat Receiver
This is a Bluetooth Global satellite receiver with navigation, featuring a low power consumption chipset. Includes a ceramic patch antenna and a high sensitivity GPS receiver, for faster acquisition times and super great accuracy in urban areas and places with thick foliage. The battery life is up to 11 hours in continuous mode.
