This could save your bacon.

I used this while floating 600 miles on the Yukon River in Canada/Alaska. With a touch of a button I could let my family know via email where I was and if I was OK. I never used the emergency button, but it was a huge comfort to myself and my family that I could have help if I needed it. Bottom line: If you spend time in the back country, this is something that can save your life.

Did you ever try to send messages with it? If so, were you successful?

I used SPOT daily at work to send OK messages to my supervisors, and worked with other people who used SPOT to send SOS messages. We never had a problem with messages not getting delivered.
