Professional base jumper credits GPS device for saving him


Professional base jumper, Marshall Miller credits SPOT GPS Messenger with helping save him from a life- threatening situation. Miller ended up running into the wall that he had just jumped off of when unexpected wind activity forced him to open his parachute. He ended up 1,000 feet from the top of this cliff and 2,000 feet from the bottom. Suffering from injuries and with no cell phone coverage, Miller radioed his fellow jumpers, who used SPOT to signal for help. Miller said, "We've used these things for years, but I've never understood the power of these, until you're in a situation like that where it's life and death."
