Here's a commercial tracking device for $169, plus a $150 yr (or so) service
fee. 

Uses uploads to a commercial satellites to "Send and save your location and
allow contacts to track your progress using your password and Google MapsT.
Request help from friends and family at your exact location. Dispatch
emergency responders to your exact location."  

Sound like it might be a great safety device for back-country explorers or
sailors.

Any implications or ideas for hams/APRS?  Too bad we don't have a
geostationary OSCAR network. :-)
