The SHOUT nano is a handheld, global, two-way satellite messaging and personal tracking device. It utilizes Iridium’s short burst data (SBD) service to provide location information determined by a GPS receiver, two-way inbound and outbound status, text messaging, and emergency/alert notifications.
The nano offers a variety of services including:
• Normal Tracking — programmed to automatically wake up and send a position report at a set interval ranging from continuous to once every seven days.
• Emergency Alert — sends alerts to a designated monitoring center using a 911 button. The monitoring center and the user can then communicate to define further specifics of the emergency.
• Free-Text Messaging — sends free-text via three different sets of on-screen keyboards.
• Canned Text Messaging — sends canned (pre-defined) messages in short codes to save bandwidth instead of the entire message body.
• Waypoint Tracking — sends and/or saves waypoints (interested landmarks) for later retrieval.
• Check-In — allows a quick check-in message to be sent using a single soft key.
