Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Higher Ground is a company that is making communication from anywhere…more affordable. The company’s SatPaq gives you the ability to send and receive text messages through your mobile device when there is no cell phone service available…as long as you have an open view of the sky. And service costs as little as 55 dollars a year for 150 messages. Testing while hiking in a remote mountain area made me a believer in the 249 dollar SatPaq. The messages include your GPS coordinates in the event of emergencies and the app provides weather and medical information as well. President and Founder Rob Reis…
“You buy messages…you don’t pay by the month. So it’s there when you need it and that’s what you want for safety.”
And Reis says there are more capabilities to come. Find more at www.SatPaq.com
