Spot Devices - Amazingly Cool!!!
A member of our local Jeep club posted up on a "I am Wheeling Alone" thread the club keeps and monitors. You post up where you are going, and an ETA back to pavement. The club watches the thread. If you dont post back by your ETA, folks will come out looking for you!
This member has a Spot. I am not sure which one yet. But it let him post a link to it and a password - we can log on online with the password and see exactly where he is with coordinates and a map! Amazingly cool. That is now on my need list!
I know Spots can also be programmed to transmit short messages - ie "send help" or "I am ok just running late" and stuff.
Anyone here run with one? What brand/features does yours have? Has it ever saved you?
