Projected to hit stores this summer, the DeLorme's Earthmate PN-60w combines GPS mapping technology with satellite messaging for the utmost in convenience and reliability.

Using DeLorme's Spot technology, the Earthmate delivers messages via email, social networking sites or SMS texts, while the GPS displays high-resolution aerial images, North American topography maps, and the ever-reliable NOAA nautical charts.

The world's first example of such dual functionality, the Earthmate provides peace of mind when in extraordinarily remote areas. The device will sell from outdoor adventure stores such as REI and L.L. Bean for around $500.
