Braz, When your "I'm OK." message location pops up on google earth from downtown Winnemucca or from the Bunny Ranch you might really be in trouble. SPOT is accurate to about 10 yards. Just my attempt at being funny.Dan

LMAO! Somehow I knew exactly what you were referring to Dan, before you 'splained it! haha! Sage advice, Dan, sage advice!

Thanks for posting the amazon information. I was reading some of the reviews and its kinda scary trusting your life to this unit.I was thinink about jumping blind into one of these and now feel I should do more research. Just remember that whatever service plan you go with, just because the map shows an orange color over your hunting locations does not mean in any way that you will have service there. Heavy wooded areas and canyons can kill your phone reception.

Does the SPOT device have a competitor?Cabela's was offering them for "free" (full rebate of purchase price) but the catch was you needed to sign a 2-year service contract. $200 or $100/year. Obviously, in an emergency, that's nothing but I couldn't help wonder if they are the only game in town? Anyone know?

Bass Pro Mastinka was offering the same 149 mail in rebate 1 year contract

I bought a SPOT messenger this spring to take with me to the Cedarville area. no cell reception in that area for my T-Mobile cell but the SPOT worked flawlessly for my wife and son to track my locations when I was hunting in the fields or when I was in the ranch house. I got the SPOT for free after rebates but I did have to sign on for an extended contract.

Here, around the Bakersfield area, I have AT&T and get horrible service out of town. The best I have witnessed is Sprint.

Not only does a good carrier matter but a good phone does also. They are always updated the hardware and firmware in phones to be clearer and have greater reception, higher quality (usually the more expensive) phones will have better internals than the el cheapo phones.
