Spots, spots, SPOTs everywhere

August 15th, 2008 by Jeannie Yang

There's lots of talk about mobile updaters like the iPhone or Nokia, but what happens when you're out of cellular range and your phone can't connect to the internet? I shudder at the thought, but this is not a doomsday post, enter SPOT.

SPOT is a satellite messenger and it's able to update your location from practically anywhere in the world. Unlike other GPS devices, it is able to broadcast your location to friends and family. Oh, and it can save your life. There's a 9-1-1 button which they don't recommend testing, but I've no doubt that it works. SPOT is one of the early Fire Eagle developers and, so far, the only device maker. They play with satellites, for reals. So, we were quite excited when SPOT integrated with Fire Eagle. Now, you can link your SPOT with your Fire Eagle account and have it update your Fire Eagle location when you check in or have tracking turned on. If you have the SPOT tracking service, it will periodically check in and update your Fire Eagle location automatically.

SPOT was just as excited as us to see what Fire Eagle users would think of it that they are offering a discounted SPOT with a free year of basic and tracking services to all you early Fire Eagle users. That's going to save you some pennies for sure. Not much more I've got to say, but go try it out for yourselves! Go get your SPOT promo now.

When you get your SPOT set up, log into your SPOT profile pages and choose the "Share tab", then click on "Share with Fire Eagle" to authorize SPOT to update your Fire Eagle location.

Also when you join and login this is what comes up, its a great value

Now extended through December 31st!

For a limited time, SPOT is offering Fire Eagle users a one-year subscription to SPOT basic and tracking services and a discounted SPOT satellite messenger!

Use SPOT with Fire Eagle to update your location from most anywhere around the world and share your SPOT location with any other Fire Eagle applications.

Hi Jimmy,

I bought one for George for Christmas right after I had my accident. We haven't had a chance to take it out on the trail yet (yes I gave it to him early, darn now I'll have to buy him something else ) however we have a friend that has one and he accidently hit the 911 buttom and lets just say it works really well.

I've always been afraid of having no cell service and needing help so I feel more comfortable having one with us. From what I was told the signal works better if you use the mounting hard ware but you can carry it on your belt as well.

Hope this helps, I'll let you know how it does when we take it out. IMO its a good idea to play it safe.

Cinda

      We have a canceled order consisting of 17 Kawasaki Pro FXT Full Cabs for an existing Hard Windshield. This is a top of the range Cab Enclosure that is modular. That means the panels are not sewn together, but connect together. The Doors are Half Doors that work in perfectly with your factory Half Doors. These can be Zipped Open and held in place with Velcro tabs, or the Door Panels Zipped off completely. The Soft Top connects to the Doors and Back Panel. You can remove the Back Panel for more airflow.

      The Cabs were ordered for a rental company who could not complete their obligations. All Cabs have been fitted to a Kawasaki Pro FXT once and then removed. The Cabs are in as new condition, but the original boxes and installation instructions have been thrown out. As the Cabs were fitted, the Hook & Loop(Velcro) have been connected to the Pro FXT's and as a result the Hook tape needs replacing. Each Cab will be shipped in new packaging, with the replacement Hook tape and a new set of instructions. 

      The starting retail value for a Kawasaki Pro FXT Full Cabs for an existing Hard Windshield is $825.00 including shipping. The Doors alone cost over $600.00. Our special price is $459.00 plus shipping. We will also offer anybody who wants the Windshield to complete a Full Cab Enclosure, a 10% discount plus shipping. Use code KProFXT10D for the discount. There will be 2 shipping charges with the Windshield, one for the Cabs that are in Georgia & one for the Windshield from us in Kentucky. You will never be able to buy a quality Cab Enclosure for your Kawasaki Pro FXT at this price again once they have all gone, that I can guarantee. 

      Email me for more info: [email protected]

      Webpage for the Kawasaki Pro FXT Full Cabs for an existing Hard Windshield  There is one Cab with Full Doors and 16 Cabs with Half Doors available. 
      Webpage for the Kawasaki Pro FXT 2 piece Lexan Windshield  You have a choice of Windshields at various prices.
