Globalstar update and Spot personal messenger rebate.

If you have ever thought about owning a Satellite phone, now is the time. With the increased performance of the Globalstar network call times are improving and network reliability is up.

Rates are at a very affordable $40.00/month for unlimited North America calling, and with phone prices at historic lows. Now is the time to use this great tool.

Unlike cell phones a Satellite phone relies on a visual access to overhead satellites, so you will find that in areas were no cell phone coverage exists, a satellite phone will allow you place that important call.

Garmin GPSMAP 740 Auto Routing Demo

Here is a short promo video we shot with WFN highlighting the Garmin GPSMAP 740 and a G2 Vision mapping chart auto routing feature.  Unfortunately, the camera didn’t pick up the screen very well, but we routed around several small islands automatically without having to enter in a series of waypoints for the unit to follow.

Just set a safety depth and the unit will automatically calculate a route for you in water deeper than your safety depth.  This is an absolutely amazing GPS unit that will cut your pre-trip planning down to 5 minuets before departure.

Check out to see how easy it is to use –> GARMIN GPSMAP 740 VIDEO

Be sure to stop by the Radioworld Booth at the Toronto International Boat Show and check out this unit!
