Hampton, Australia. June 15, 2012

Personal GPS locators now mobile, waterproof, and highly affordable are becoming increasingly common gifts for teens, as parents across Australia adopt satellite technology to calm their common dread, children who are late home. Reports Jeff Dusting, founder of

The Spot V2 Satellite GPS Messenger device sends an automatic "I'm Ok" or “Help” to up to ten pre-loaded email addresses with a simple push of a button.

The highly prized "track progress’ feature allows users to send and save their location while contacts track their progress in near real time using Google Maps.

The SOS button instantly notifies emergency services of your GPS location and an alert that you need assistance.

Adventure Safety founder Jeff Dusting says, "Spot GPS locator's provide a lot of reassurance, teens discreetly push a single button to update their “I’m OK” status and get total peace of mind knowing they can send a “Help” or SOS in an emergency situation where dialing on a phone may not be possible or desirable."

"At Adventure Safety we principally sell or hire the Spot V2 Satellite GPS Messenger device to hikers and bikers, sailors and runners, those who are likely to find themselves alone and needing assistance.

The trend now is to women and parents who want them as gifts for teens and sometimes for older parents, those who may also find themselves alone and needing assistance" says Jeff Dusting, founder of Adventure Safety.
