Re: August Giveaway - Aurora Satellite

These satellite hotspot systems are definitely the way of the future. I used a SPOT locator with limited text msg capability on my last ocean crossing and it was great but this is better!
Have fun, its the best thing to have!

Re: August Giveaway - Aurora Satellite

Marine Weather for Iridium, Inmarsat | NOAA, GRIB Files, Charts | GMN
Would be my first pick although there are a ton of other cool products
