Globalstar Canada Satellite Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Globalstar Inc. and a leader in satellite messaging and emergency notification technologies, has announced new SPOT Mapping services available on all active SPOT service plans and across all SPOT devices. SPOT Mapping is an affordable, easy-to-use, multilingual tool for mapping and managing workers and sharing positions from outdoor journeys, providing peace of mind when the unexpected happens.

SPOT Mapping includes mobile responsive and sharable maps, longer data storage, and various map displays, including satellite, road and terrain options. Users also have the option to view maps in live or history mode, for tracking in real-time or to review previous trips or asset locations.

“We have consistently listened to our customers feedback and worked diligently to offer a new enhanced mapping experience,” said Dave Kagan, CEO of Globalstar. “SPOT is proud to have initiated more than 7,000 rescues worldwide and our hope is that our mapping platform brings a new level of visuals and features to keep outdoor adventures safer and more informative than ever.”

SPOT Mapping is now included on all active service plans for the SPOT X, the SPOT Gen 3, the SPOT Trace, and SPOT legacy products. The basic level covers up to five SPOT devices and includes three years of mapping history, as well as an active shared views feature. Users also have the option to upgrade to SPOT Mapping Premium or Enterprise tiers starting at USD$25 per year, which includes advanced features such as GeoFence to help manage people and assets independent of the availability of terrestrial communication networks. These levels include increased shared views and position history, unlimited contacts, advanced custom icons and more.
