It runs via the private Globalstar satellite system and works in places cell phones will not, though there are certain geographic restrictions. The simple device transmits your GPS coordinates along with one of three types of messages. The OK button ("Wish you were here") sends a custom text message to pre assigned cell phone numbers and e mail addresses of friends and family. The HELP button sends an "I need assistance" message to the same group of family and friends.

I think Cole accident may help bring about some necessary changes affecting how we share the water. Laurie Fox decided to go for a run on Kent Trail with her dog Lyle one December afternoon three and a half years ag.
