Photo Release - Mother's Nature: Mother's Day Gift for the Outdoor Enthusiast

Covington, LA. , April 02 2012 - What do Moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day?

While some Moms would be happy with a day off, the more than 60 million American women who consider themselves outdoor enthusiasts most likely want a day out.

If the Mom in your life likes to “go outside and play” – sailing, hiking, camping or cycling – chances are that she is often out of cell phone range when doing so. A SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger™ allows mom to pursue her outdoor passions knowing that help – and her family – are only a touch away.

A rugged, pocket-sized personal tracker that works where cell phones do not, SPOT gives Mom the adventure she cherishes with the security she needs. To date, SPOT has assisted in more than 1,700 outdoor rescues.

The outdoorsy Mom can use a SPOT Messenger for:

  • SPOT Rescues: transmit her location to a global rescue coordination center
  • SPOT Check Ins: let others know she is OK and has arrived safely
  • SPOT Tracking: share her locations in real time via Google Maps
  • SPOT Communication: send custom messages to her family and friends

SPOT Messenger retails for $99.99 (service plan required) and is available at Cabela’s, REI, Bass Pro Shops, West Marine, Best Buy and other leading outdoor retailers. For more information and a retail location near you, visit
