Clinton wants to know if there's a way to report his location when traveling without the use of a smartphone? Leo says that there are Personal Location Beacon (PLB) and Satellite Messengers. Satellite Messengers do require a subscription though. They connect via satellite, and you can set it up to contact anyone in the event of an emergency. But if you have an iPhone or an Android device with vs. 11, you can send an emergency call by pressing the on/off switch five times in quick succession.
