Life Saver

Close friends and I have personally successfully used this product in what could have been very bad situations- There have been multiple situations where my friends or I have been in zero-cell phone coverage, totally remote (all in the US in my case) areas where cars cannot get to- the SOS button activated and with astonishing response time a heli showed up- and I'm talking REMOTE areas. A must have for anybody traveling in the wilderness or even just on long road trips. The GPS mapping feature works great too.

Any opinion about how reliable this product is - there are certain roads my wife won't ride alone due to the remote naure and spotty cell phone coverage (terrain is pretty wide open, no steep canyons or heavy foliage)

Great product! It will suit perfectly the needs of your wife. We use it to follow our trail runner Kilian Jornet when he's attempting his ultra distance records

Write your question here...Do you have to pay a monthly membership fee for the SPOT services?

Responded on

Yes! I know there is a yearly set up, but I think you can do it month by month too.

Responded on

Yearly membership starts at 99.99 with options to add other services on. The Optional rescue insurance is less than 10 bucks a year and is good up to $100,000, which is phenomenal-

Anyone use both the first version of the SPOT and this new version? Is it worth upgrading to the new SPOT?

Responded on

Yeah, I have Spot 1 and the new Spot works quite a bit better, what I mean by this is the signal is improved. Also, a new road side assistance feature for $30.00 annually, and the buttons and lights are better to understand. The only draw back is Backcountry is the mot expensive place to buy the Spot 2 at the moment many other places put the new Spot 2 at $149.99
