Globalstar Europe Satellite Services Ltd. announced that 2015 was another record year for SPOT activations in Europe. In addition, 41 customers were rescued last year in Europe, Middle East and Africa thanks to SPOT’s SOS functionality. This figure excludes rescues handled by VARs and other third parties. SPOT delivers affordable, location-based messaging and life-saving emergency notification technology to tens of thousands of EMEA users, completely independent of mobile phone coverage. SPOT products make it easy to track adventurers in the wild and provide anti-theft protection for valuable assets such as boats, cars and bikes. The French and UK markets have recorded particularly high growth with 360 per cent and 74 per cent increases in activations respectively since 2013. Spain and Germany also saw very strong growth. Highlights include the take-up of the SPOT Trace tracker in the burgeoning leisure marine and automotive sectors.
