Keeps You In Touch, Could Save Your Life

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, hiker, mountain climber, off-road motorcyclist, mountain biker, skier, sailor, small plane pilot or any type of adventurer, this gadget could literally save your life.

Just ask retired Houston firefighter Michael Herrara. After breaking three ribs and his collarbone in a hard fall from his dual-sport bike in a remote area in Alabama, he hit the SOS button on his messenger. Within 40 minutes an ATV was on hand to transport him to a trauma center.

Features to look for in a satellite messenger include data speed, battery life, coverage areas, size, weight and ease of use and, of course, an SOS button.
