Hello,

I am making a project in which involves needing coordinates to be sent from any point in the oceanic water (Pacific Ocean) to a point on land so I can track where it is heading. I am curious if anyone knows of a way to do this? I am using an Arduino DUE and can add anything if needed.

Thank you for any help or guidance.

Most reliable would be satellite phone I think. Could also be pricey. Got a sponsor for the project?

You can buy GPS locators that transmit their position every minute or so to satellites. Track the locator on a web page.

SPOT is one such, and has coverage over most of the world. Not all that expensive, either. http://findmespot.com/en/

May need to hack it some for longer life battery, or solar charging, or something.

For the record, the SPOT device is currently on sale for US $75 and service is $149/year. REI.com has some very helpful customer reviews here.
